Another good night at the West End open mic – a three-song set with John Huckans on tuba. Have to Pee, from World Famous in Bloomsburg, Lights Went Out, from Dry Ridge, and Devil on the Wild Side, a mix of Walk on the Wild Side and Devil Went Down to Georgia that I crafted about twenty years ago. It sounds much better with the tuba.
The tuba brings in the folks, too, from the other room with cellphone cameras, etc.
And how many people can tell “TUBA SOLO!” in the middle of a bluegrass song about having to leave your tent to go to the bathroom in the rain and have it actually happen? I only know of one, and he’s a happy guy.
Thanks to Darren Inman for the photo.
