Wild Wings was WILD!!!

We're back in TENNESSEE!!!!!!!!!

We've had some good Wild Wings shows over the last year, but this one topped them ALL. The one in Knoxville is great to begin with. The stage is really nice and the room is very open with lots of good partying room :) Plus there is a huge deck with a little pond outside, so it is a beautiful place.

Tonight? STANDING ROOM ONLY. It was amazing. And we had TONS of groups that came out. We had a BLAST on stage tonight and really let loose. Miguel freakin played with his TEETH tonight!!! I have only seen him do that a few times, but he did it the longest I have ever seen him do it tonight. He broke a string during Sweet Child of Mine and had to play the ENTIRE solo with a broken string and would you have ever known if you hadn't seen the string flopping around? NOPE. He didn't miss a beat. He's a monster.

I walked right past some friends the first time I took a load in to set on the stage. I didn't even notice them at the table. Well, a few minutes later - I saw some of THEIR friends walking in the door. Kenny and Debbie Green drove ALL the way up from Columbia to come to the show tonight. And they were all decked out in their Peace, Love, Fiddle gear. Their friends (who have made it out to Sam Hill's on many an occasion) brought their daughter and son-in-law. Plus, Jennifer (Miguel's wife) came up, and she brought our friend John Anderlie. (Who coincidently used to work with Debbie and knows Kenny and Debbie quite well!)



After I saw this crew, I noticed a whole table of people from the Christmas party we played in December. And ummm... then I saw another table of people from the party.... and then another....
Here's Leslie and some of her peeps :)


When the guys, Jenn, and I sat down to dinner... I saw a couple that looked very familiar waaaaay across the room. At first I wasn't 100% sure because I thought, "What are they doing in Knoxville?" But then I saw them looking at me, too. We waved across the room and it WAS them!!!! It's Keith and Susan from my church at home! FUMC unites in Knowxville :) (They stayed until the very last note!) AND they brought friends.


Ok. Now it just seemed to get crazy. This place is 4 hours from my home town, but it was starting to feel like Columbia just because there were so many familiar faces!

The next person I saw was Caroline Marsh from BGA. We went to high school together, and I have not seen her since I graduated. She is in School in Knoxville, and this was her very sweet fiance Luke.


This group of people saw us in Panama City Beach last August, and then came here tonight, AND said they are coming back to PCB in August this year! YAY!!!


And THEN I saw Dave Evans. He had brought 3 whole tables of people, too!!! We played the music festival that he is in charge of this last summer - the Little Tennessee River Music festival in Vonore, Tn.


DJ Stan Duh Man is literally THE MAN!!! He wore his peace, love, fiddle t-shirt, he even sported a cowboy hat for me, AND not only did he play before between and after the sets - he scratched records during "Play That Funky Music" which was SOO fun!!! I have never had a dj sit in on a show before!


And this will probably go down as one of my favorite band pics of all time.


But now it is 6:30am so I should probably work on that whole sleeping thing. It's now officially Spring Break for me this week. We have a few days off, and I will finally get a chance to get some good writing done.

Natalie's Chocolate Chip Restaurant is pretty proud to announce that we will have our grand opening soon since the health inspector has almost recovered from his first test tasting tour.

We are currently wining dining and refining our menu which includes Chocolate Chip Chili, with large hunky chunks of dark chocolate blended in with secret spices and tomato dices.

It really tastes SOOOOOO good, and has only 3,000 calories per one cup serving in our lite menu version that uses a little less lard than the regular menu.

We are also wapidly working on our White Chocolate Chili, which has a beautiful bouquet of subdued yet subtle spices that have a keen ability to penetrate our taste buds deeply and thoroughly ( okay, we confess, Merriam Webster is here and is helping us write our chili marketing materials, that is when she's not busy clogging and clodding and yodelling with us and such : )

And our favorite recipe, Hillbilly Chili, with ingredients so protected even our Shady Grove Secret Service does not want to know.

In general our best results have been scraped off the wall right after one of our culinary calamities, so we are also working on Chocolate Chili Perfume, because that's what we smell like, even after belated bathing in the pond, and when we have gone to the big city recently the city girls seem to be strangely attracted to our terrific odorificness, and when opportunity knocks us country boys believe in enthusiastically opening our silos double doors.

We hope you enjoy your mini vacashine, and we'll send you some chili for the road because it's so powerful no refrigeration is needed : )

Happy Tennessee Trails : )
