Pat's Weekly Diary: 7/13 – 7/14/18
Friday night, Friday the 13th we played at the Treasure Chest Casino in Kenner. What a fantastic packed crowd we had there. For such a long time we were only playing the Treasure Chest during the middle of the week. Mostly we’d have pretty decent crowds. Sometimes we’d play to hardly anyone. But these past few times at the Treasure Chest on a Friday or a Saturday have just been great. You gotta love playing these weekend shows. Saturday we played a wedding at the Audubon Tea Room. We had to be there at 5:15 as they wanted us set up before 6 at which time guests will arrive. The ceremony was being held there at 7. Cocktails from 7:30 to 8:15. Second line around the park 8:15 to 8:45. Finally the Topcats play from 8:45 to 11:45. So we had 2 hours and 45 minutes to wait before we would play a single note. Now we have a choice to make. Should I stay or should I go? Plenty enough time to get home relax a bit and then get back. Or I could just go out to my truck and take a snooze there. Wait… didn’t a jaguar got loose in the zoo earlier Saturday? I wasn’t sure if it had been caught by that time so my decision was pretty easy. I was back home by 6:30 I was kinda worried about those people second lining around the park from 8:15 to 8:45. Back to the zoo and start right on time. Congratulations to Mr. Coleman & Mrs. Shelley Yates. A huge fantastic party. Coleman actually sang a couple of songs with us. We’re off now except for a little more Beatle rehearsing during the week. (Let me see if I got this right… “na na na na na na na… na na na na… Hey Jude…” yea I got it.) We hope to see you on Friday at Speckled T’s in Slidell. Don’t forget you can follow us on Twitter .
