Open Mic, Pat's Bar, Buchanan Dam, TX

On alternating Sundays, our band Turnabout hosts Open Mic Night at Pat's.  The band is Don Crowder-guitar and vocals, Jody Proctor-guitar and vocals, Pat Gibbons-bass guitar and vocals, John Carpenter-drums and vocals and Lisa Miller-vocals and sound.  For those of my friends who aren't familiar with the routine, Don and I drive to Pat's in a Olds van stuffed to capacity (rear seats removed), set up a stage with monitors, mains, mic stands, mixer and amps and LOTS of cords.  Then we sing and play for 4 hours, pack it all up again and drive home.  We think it's fun!

Tonight we had a great turnout of musical guests and had a great time.  Special thanks to Jeff Papp, Joe Bryant, Joe Bray, Bill Sperry, Denton Wills Sr., and Lewis Crowell.  Doesn't it look like a blast?
