June 24, 2023: We performed to a packed house at the @SugarCreekCasino in Hinton, OK. It’s always a sweet sound to hear the roar of a crowd! Outside it was like a furnace in the heat wave that has enveloped Texas and Oklahoma, but inside, that nice, cool air conditioning was running full blast. I don’t know if you’re old enough to remember living in a house without air conditioning but I certainly do (and no A/C in the car either of course!). That is one of the greater inventions we’ve adjusted to, wouldn’t you say? I can recall it being so hot at night, it was almost impossible to fall asleep. Then as an entertainer, you’d be onstage just putting everything you’ve got into the show and just come off so hot, it was a wonder we didn’t get heat stroke up there in those old days. But today – although we do occasionally play a place that thinks a few fans equal air conditioning, we’re lucky that most have adapted to the real thing.
Saturday night it was all good. Here a few photos from the show.
