after missing last week. After the band opened the evening festivities with the familiar theme written by our lead guitar player, Gordon Riley and titled “Gordon’s Boogie #1″, Mary Bichelmeyer stepped up to report that Garry continues to recover from his recent injuries and is very grateful for all of the cards, letters and phone calls he has received from his fans and friends. Lead singer, Larry Dean jumped right in then with Mel Tillis’ “Good Woman Blues” followed with Keith Whitley’s “I’m Over You”. Next to the microphone was our outstanding fiddle player, “Marvelous” Marvin Bredemeier playing Johnny Gimble’s “Rubber Dolly” and pairing with Gordon to play “Shokin Farewell”.
Lead guitar player, Gordon Riley stepped to the microphone then to sing the Charlie Rich hit, “Wash My Hands In Muddy Water” and Willie’s “Ain’t It Funny How Time Slips Away”. Larry returned with George Strait’s “Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind” and “Murder On Music Row”. “Marvelous” Marvin returned front and center to play an old Glenn Miller hit titled “In The Mood” and Ray Price’s “Faded Love”. Larry would return to sing Merle Haggard’s “Goin’ Where The Lonely Go” and Delbert McClnton’s “Every Time I Roll The Dice” to close the first half.
We had a very special treat to open the second half. A new special guest, Bobby Shepherd (above) hails from way down in Huntington, Arkansas came by. He began by singing Ricky Skaggs’ “The Old Home Place” followed with “Nine Pound Hammer” and “Milk Cow Blues” finishing with Johnny Cash’s hit “Folsom Prison Blues”, Great Job!
Larry followed with “Let’s Fall To Pieces Together” and a great song written by our own Garry Bichelmeyer called “I Must Have Been Out Of My Mind”. “Marvelous” Marvin came up then with “The Waltz You Saved For Me’. Gordon came to the microphone next to sing David Allan Coe’s hit, “Truck Drivin Man” and “Me and Bobby McGee” before Larry returned again to sing Marty Robbins’ “Don’t Worry About Me”
Bobby Shepherd was called back to the front then to sing Bill Monroe’s “Walls of Time” and Vince Gill’s “High on the Mountain”. Bobby Shepherd gave us a great performance and we encourage him to stop back by any time. Great Job, Bobby!
Larry Dean closed the show then with “The Lighthouse” and the band played the closing theme, Gordon’s “Gordon’s Boogie #2″.
We hope to see you all again back at the BK Lounge next Tuesday and don’t forget the 4th of July dance from 2:00 til 6:00 PM at the American Legion on 75th Street. There will be no admission charge and they will be selling hamburgers or hot dogs with potato salad and baked beans for $3.00.
As always our sincere Thanks to Dave and Jean Hightower for the pictures
