Two years ago, Chasing Mabel played our first gig together at Dean & Sues Bar and Grill in Menomonie, Wisconsin. We returned to Dean & Sue's this evening to play outside on the patio. We had a ball. Many of the folks in the crowd had been at our first gig two years ago and we enjoyed the opportunity to touch base and show them a good time. Once in a while, you have to give the drummer some. So Scott was featured in our promo video. Love these videos or hate them, they give Chasing Mabel fans the opportunity to hear from us individually and they're a popular part of our Facebook page. We continue to get good feedback from folks who follow us. They enjoy the updates, so we'll continue to produce them. Dean & Sue's is located less than 5 minutes from our rehearsal space. Load in was a breeze as we could bring our vehicles right up to the performance area. It was an outdoor gig. 62 Degrees at our 7:00 p.m. downbeat and the temperature dropped throughout the gig--welcome to July in Wisconsin. It seemed like a smallish crowd but apparently I'm getting spoiled. After the gig, staff told me it was the best attendance they've had all year. We played until 10:00 p.m., spent 70 minutes tearing down and--since no one was ready to call it a night--went into the bar for pizza, adult beverages and a lot of laughs. Not a bad way to spend a Wisconsin Summer Night. Thanks to everyone who shares stories from their gigs. Brightens my day to read them. Cheers, Chuck **NOTE**With regrets, I seem to have hit a snag with the image hosting site that I've been using. Apparently that site no longer provides free third party hosting. End result -- I'm unable to post gig pictures in this post. So until I get my act together, you'll have to take my word that, at last night's gig, I looked like Brat Pitt, the patio at Dean & Sue's bears a remarkable resemblance to Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and the food pictures were worthy of a culinary publication. Sorry folks!
