Had a great time playing last night at Artemis Gallery for their 15th anniversary party. That is quite an accomplishment for John Crutchfield, who founded the popular gallery when there were very few there at all. It is at the corner of Lombardy and W. Main Street in the fan, an area that is getting to be known as the Gallery District.
There were quite a few familiar faces, and new folks dropping in as we got the music going. Meade Skelton, Chris Branch, and I played from about 6 PM to 10 as people examined the art work on the walls and display tables. Meade played his hit tune "Sweet Tea" and Chris Branch delivered some fine Neil Young classics to the appreciative crowd.
Also, a cake with candles was brought out, and we all gathered around to sing Happy Birthday. The music continued as people mingled inside and out on the rainyish night, this event was part of the First Friday series in the area.
