Here's the latest from the book of Wedding Band tales. A while back I missed a wedding gig, and was replaced by our friend Aldo. When a portly, cowboy boot-encrusted guest requested that they play a slow, country waltz for Harry and Marie's 65th wedding anniversary, the city boys in the band were stumped. Finally Aldo said: "I've got one in A, here we go!" and counted them off as the elderly couple began to creak on the dance floor. Kent recalls the chords were easy to follow, but he had a hard time finishing the chorus when Aldo sang the hook line: "Here's A Quarter, Call Someone Who Cares".

As the holiday season approaches, remember it's better to give than receive, and it's even better to give our CD as a present!
