August 6 ~
Who would have thought that
our first gig could be so much fun? After a bit of an adventure when
transmission dropped out of one of the vans
(right in front of the U-Haul, how handy is that?) we played
set at the top of Multorpor Mountain
(part of Mt. Hood). This was one of those weddings
that you're just
so darn happy to be a part of.
Beautiful weather, a bride and groom who were having
FUN, and the
opportunity to ride the ski-lift or mountain slide down from
the top of the mountain. The
reception was a riot, with Phoenix
Rising doing a 20 minute (or so, depends on
who's telling the story)
version of "Hava Nagila" while the bride, groom,
and parents were hoisted on chairs and the
danced around underneath them! We wish the bride and groom a
happy ever after and a huge thanks
asking us to be part of their special day!
