It was great to have Greg Moore (above), formerly with Travis Tritt's band and now with Remington Ryde, play the fiddle with us during the open mic segment at the Dutch Country Inn in mid-April.

Here we are again with the gang at Jim's Tavern (photo above and two below). We had a great time dancing and partying. If you haven't ever been to Jim's, you don't know what you are missing. Come on out and enjoy the fun.
Jim and the band were honored to play among the greats of the steel guitar in late April when we were invited to the Steel Guitar Benefit Jam organized by steel guitar great Gordie Sauble near Codorus on April 30.

The dance floor was rockin' as we closed with 'Mustang Sally'.
