The Stranger Creek Band journeyed to Sedalia Missouri where the Missouri branch of the Good Sam Campers were having their yearly convention at the State Fairgrounds. We were all excited about getting to entertain this large, enthusiastic crowd.
They made each of our talented musicians feel so welcome with each and every performance. Our star attraction was our pretty 16 year old singing sensation, Maggie Marx. She drew a large ovation with every song she sang and she sang several. She sang about four songs and then the band took over the music duties for awhile before calling her back up to the microphone. The President of the Missouri Good Sam club had heard that Maggie was a yodeler and made a special request for a yodeling song. Maggie was happy to oblige with “I Want To Be A Cowboy’s Sweetheart”. The audience and the President all showed their appreciation with a big round of applause.
The band was in fine form as usual and played non-stop for 2 hours. After the show we received many complements from the audience and many were kind enough to hang around after the show and visit with us and comment how much they had enjoyed the show.
It was after midnight when we arrived back in Shawnee and everyone was very tired but feeling good about the evening. Perhaps we will have the opportunity to provide entertainment for them again in the future!
