We got to Bad Boys late in the 2nd set and I remembered that Johnny Soda said he would play Brown Eyed Girl for us so that we could dance. I had a couple quick beers to get loosened up and Brown Eyed Girl was the first song in the 3rd set.
This is the first ever video we have of us dancing and doing all of our moves. We break out more moves later in the song. Thanks much to Rob Mackay for taking the video.
Thanks much to Michele for taking a bunch of pics of us.
TG, are you swatting my butt?
Our throw move
Get rid of this hat so we can do some real dancing.
Not sure what move this is, but I guarantee it looks more graceful on the video
When we are really into it, we do a double flip. It is our toughest move to pull off as I have very little leverage to pull her over on the 2nd flip. I have to give it everything I’ve got as you can see in the pic (TG doesn’t feel very flattered when she sees this pic – “Hey, am I that big that you have to look like that when you are flipping me?” , and as you can see in the video we didn’t stick the landing.
Thanks to murrsay185 for this awesome pic!
I thought I was going to get a chance to relax after our dance, but JJ immediately called me up to help him sing Red Neck Mother by Jerry Jeff Walker.
My favorite pic of myself in a long time. I am so not a musician but in this shot I actually look like I know what I am doing. That’s a George Strait curve on my Stetson as well.
Rob Mackay got some more video of me on stage
There was a Peep Meet scheduled for Sharon’s birthday, but the weather kept a fair amount of people away. Those of us that were there sure had fun though.
Two John’s trying out my Stetson
The girls dancing and signing
A couple other pics.
Michelle’s Rob and Mayte
Beautiful Bad Boys bartenders (Char, can’t remember her name, Erika, and Janna). Erika was in charge of refilling my Sol, and she always made sure I had 2 limes.
We spent much of the evening dancing. We incorporated some fancy salsa footwork into regular dancing and in general just had a great time. We pretty much camp out at the edge of the bar and dance floor so that we have a place to put our drink but so we can also watch and partake in the dancing.
The last song of the night was Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy by Big & Rich. JJ said he was going to have me do the bridge part, but I figured since he had my sing earlier, he probably wasn’t going to bring me up during this song.
Ladies dancing on the bar include Janna, Ale, and Mayte (celebrating her birthday again tonight!).
Once JJ busted into the bridge part of the song, I knew I wouldn’t be singing so I jumped up on the bar as well. Erika or Janna told me later that they have never seen a guy dance on the bar before, but the song was “Ride a Cowboy” and I had my Stetson on, so what was I supposed to do?
Whenever the band would say “Save a Horse, Ride A Cowboy”, I of course would point at myself. Nice work by Bea in not falling off the bar.
They did one final song and TG joined Janna on the bar. Janna was very cool, we will miss her.
Spent awhile chatting with JJ after the band was done. He is the man.
The music has long since ended but Janna wants me to take her for a swing.
What the heck, why not another flip? She stuck the landing! Nice work Janna!
Beth and Scott showed up and we hung out visiting with them and John. We were kind of happy the weather was bad because otherwise Beth and Scott probably would have been off on one of their adventures. This way they had to hang out with us.
