Well, here I am back west of the Mississippi in Owatonna, MN to attend yet another dance rally. We're parked at the fairgrounds, and it's a pretty small group.
We started out with a pot luck, but I'm looking forward to the dancing.
Unfortunately, we are in Polka Land! We were hoping for country music, but 3 of the 4 bands we had at the dances were Polka bands.
This band even had big stacks of old-fashioned music, unlike the electronic gismos most bands have these days.
Finally on Friday night, the Full House Band looked like they had promise. The lead singer even dressed up as Willie Nelson for one number.
He also played the Orange Blossom using both a plunger and a hanger as a bow. It seems to be a contest among bands for them to try to play this song in the strangest way possible. Then, since I was up there taking pictures, he said I could play it. Well, this ought to be good... Am I holding the bow right? I guess so.
