We've been together a little less than a year and focused mostly on our wide area casinos as our main playing venue.

Word of mouth spreads, friends have parties, we got invited to play. Had an absolute blast.

I grabbed some pics as I seem to be the only one promoting this band so here's some snaps. I have video but need to edit before posting. Might be a few days.

The Luddy's did me proud.

Under the stage lights at night. Midway through the show, the temp had dropped to mid 40's.

They hired several food services. One made specialty pizzas and the other had specialty hot dogs. The host supplied the snacks, veggie trays, beer, pop and water. Gracious hosts and a good time was had by all. Plus, I was home by 10:30 PM

Looks like fun!

That's a pretty big spread for what looks like a private house party. Your kit looked great by day and night. What kind of music do you guys play?

I've been to 3 Fall Festival events on eastern Long Island in the last few weeks, and man, it just feels good to be in the outdoors, listening to bands again, drinking good beer and eating great food and just being around folks having fun again. It made me feel normal for the first time since the plague reached our shores almost 2 years ago.

Carry on man and keep on playing those outdoor gigs! (well, not in the winter! :lol: )

We play a wide variety of rock, a spot of country and generally just music everyone is familiar with.

Here's the set list we went off of Saturday night.
