It has been a scorcher this weekend, and though it may be to hot to be in the kitchen cooking, it is never to hot to be outside, listening to the hot local music that’s all around. On Friday evening, our friends Linda and Fran invited us to go see a local band perform at the Thornton library. A lot of cities host an outdoor summer fun series that is free for everyone and anyone to go to to help beat the heat. Of course we went. The band playing was a Cajun blues band called King Cake. They were really good and we all had a fantastic evening. Larry and I took a little picnic dinner and Fran and Linda bought food from the local vendors.
King Cake was rocking for about 2 hours, in the twilight hours of the evening.
On Saturday night, our friend Bill was playing at a little bar in Wheat Ridge. So we went to support him and visited with my friend Suzanne while Bill was performing. I didn’t get any pictures of Bill this time, but we have seen him perform at other small, local venues in the past too. Bill’s music is more folksy, with a little rock ‘n roll and blues thrown in. He too is very good.
These pictures of him are from last year at another venue Bill was performing at.
Of course, there is always music and singing at church that is very good too. Mike and Lauren sing and perform with the church band, as does our friend Warren, and this week, Jonathan was up there performing too. So as you can see, we had a very good, very full musical weekend with friends. I just love music of all kinds, and in the summer, the hot music helps with those days when the temperatures just keep rising. Life is definitely very good indeed.
Stay cool, stay safe and stay well, and just keep rockin’ on. ‘Til next time.
