September 25th Recap

We had PERFECT weather this past Saturday for the Rock-n-Romp at the Mid-South Maze. Such a refreshing change from the last two shows, which have been ridiculously hot. The Maze folks were wonderfully accommodating, and the venue ending up being perfectly suited for our thing.
Lots of our folks tried out the Maze, which was perplexing fun.  The kids also spent lots of time on the "jumping pillow"-- which was just about the coolest inflatable we'd ever seen. I got plenty of pics of the kids on the thing, but I wanted to share these two, of RnR board members Caleb Sweazy and Marvin Stockwell:
Hey, like we always say, RnR is for the adults just as much as it is for the kids!

First up was Holly Cole and the Memphis Dawls.  This newer incarnation of Holly's music was beautiful.
Next up was Cotton & Coal, which featured RnR's own Caleb Sweazy:
This little lady thought Caleb was a hottie.
Batting cleanup was Devil Train, with their sweet brand of gypsy jam bluegrass.  I definitely saw some fingers on fire.

After the show, the RnR Board got together for a group pic on the pillow (our first group shot since the very first show, 4 years ago!)  Thanks to the lovely and talented Sophorn McRae for shooting these.

 Thanks again to our sponsors, Whole Foods and Central BBQ, for providing us with snacks, barbecue, and cups. Their support continues to provide you folks with an amazing bang for your (five) bucks.  And thanks to all you loyal RnR'ers-- and all the new faces too-- for coming out to the show. Check out the full slideshow of pics from this show here.  Feel free to add your pics to our Flickr pool here.  And if you see a pic of your beautiful child or your rockin' band and would like a print, drop me a line, or check out my photography website here.  Seeya guys at the next show, November 6th at the Metal Museum!

September 25th Rock-n-Romp, 3-6pm

Come Rock-n-Romp with us at the Mid-South Maze on September 25th from 3-6pm. We'll have Devil Train, Cotton & Coal, and the Memphis Dawls playing. $5 Adults/kids free. Adults MUST be accompanied by children.

As always there will be free beer, Central BBQ and snacks from Whole Foods. Yeehaw!

The Mid-South Maze will give the following discounts: Maze admission-$4/adult and $2/kid, 5 and under free. The Jumping Pillow will be $2/person and you can jump all you want. Identify yourself as a Rock-n-Romper when paying and they will give them the appropriate discount.

The Maze takes about an hour, so we ask that you come early or stay late. The Jumping Pillow is adjacent to the bands, so kids can enjoy it during the show. (It is supervised.)

As always bring a blanket or a chair, a snack to share, and earplugs for the little ones. We look forward to seeing you!
