Last night was wonderful

Let's see the normal pressures were there... the band was running late... a few people called late and said they couldn't make it... twice during the day I ran into people who thought it was an outside concert and it was raining all day... I thought all these things spelled doom... even Allison admitted later she was having a day leaving her sister after two short days... but all the hassles evaporated and a great night was had by all!

I loved the fact that Allison, Matt and Phil fell in love with Claudia Schmidt's version of Spoon River and covered it as a surprise to me... the recording worked out fantastic... what a piece of gold from the night.

I even had my nephew and his neighbor drive 2 1/2 hours to catch the second set; that plus a few new guests I hope we made a lasting impression with and join us for many more concerts. Here are a few pictures from the night.

Map.. and 5 mere hours

Here's a map...


And here's an old gospel song... yep they have interests ranging from old school to 80's music to cool originals touched with a little beebop.

Out of the woodwork

I was just telling Clay last night that artist are coming out of the woodwork just like ants in spring. Venessa Peters had emailed me about an October date, and after she sent me her cd... I really want to, but I'm concerned about of all things... an audience.

People of LaCrosse, Onalaska, and Holmen... I am willing to open my house if you show up more.



Right now we're talking about spring 2010.

So Much Grace

I am so pumped to know it's only a mere days until Allison will grace Bluff View Concerts with her presence... oh yeah and Matt & Phil too. I got her permission to put a photo montage together of her wonderful song ... I do feel full of Grace everyday.

This is a Gospel tinged song, but Allison's music is more of a pop acoustic jazz feel, still is a wonderful song that many Christian groups should consider covering.

Get Ready

Now while I've been making a big deal about getting a mid week stop between the Twin Cities and Chicago, I just want to scream from the cliff tops, "People you just don't know what you're missing not to stop by..."

So ... stop over to www.myspace.com/bluffview or email me at dave@theroseriverband.com ... just do it already.
