Our friends the Barefoot
Nellies went there last year and said they had a good
time. Our friend Buck Buckner who helps organize it said he
thought it was a good time. Don Coffin who books it called
and said we should come up, play a couple sets and have a
Well go figure, we had a good time and have some fond memories.
In addition to two sets for a fun crowd we also met some fine
folks and witnessed one very bad man. We were having a beverage
at the Main Street cafe and Dave noticed a high speed chase
across the street. Well, not that high. The entire Lower Lake
police force pulled over some guy on his Rascal scooter. Dave
became VERY agitated that "the man" was hassling
the poor scooter driver...or so we thought. It turned out
that it was a case of grand-theft-rascal. Well, not that grand.
Who says small towns don't get exciting?

Here's a moving picture for you. Nancy Zuniga taped this rendering
of Dave Evans'
Highway 52 and posted it on YouTube. We should be up to
a couple million views in no time at all.
Wow! The Crows got to play the Freight. As a local band I
don't think there is anything cooler than to get to play the
Bay Area's acoustic Mecca. We were totally psyched to walk
in and see a big crowd that we weren't expecting. We knew
that a few of our very good friends ;> (that's a crow wink)
and family would be there but we didn't expect people all
the way to the back. I think that having a few local/regional
bands get to play a place like that brings out all their friends
for the big event. Throw in some venue regulars and all the
sudden you have a big, enthusiastic crowd. The Bluegrass
Revolution went first. They played a lot of fast instrumentals
and rock-and-rollie numbers. Next Belle
Monroe and her Brewglass Boys played a fine set of crowd
pleasing tunes. Then...the Crows came out and played a lot
of really sad songs. A nice contrast of bands makes for a
better show! We had a great time and the audience was great.
Jeff's mom came all the way from Minnesota and gave it two
thumbs up. She said Jeff was her favorite part. She also said
that I should never make fun of the accordian or polka bands
and that she would still love Jeffrey even if he did decide
to pick up the bag pipes.
||Good Old Fashioned Report
Hollister can be a brutally hot spot on any given day
in July. This year the NCBS's Good
Old Fashioned couldn't have been any luckier or better.
The days were in the 80s and the nights were nothing but cool.
A few of our bluegrass pals played on stage like the Barefoot
Nellies and Grizzly
Peak and a whole lot of our bluegrass picking friends set
up camp and stayed up late. Good times! The Crows got tapped
for a perfect time slot this year. We got to play Saturday night
as the sun went down to a big, raucous crowd. It may have been
our most fun ever. Roz played bass and did a mighty fine job.
Chris was almost back in full voice and things went without
a hitch. Well, a little problem with the sound at first but
Paul Knight figured it out and on with the show. We got some
kind words from CBA president Darby Brandli - "I thought
everything you did at GOF was great: the vocals, the musicianship,
the between-song banter, the wardrobe, the pacing. FIRST RATE."
The MightBe Crows at Kings River
We had a little snafu with the times and had to throw something
together before Mark and Jeff even got there. We put Luke
Abbot on fiddle, John Kael on banjo and Paul Knight left the
sound board to play bass. Not a bad showing from the Might
Be Crows considering the 40 minute warning. We were still
in our pajamas when we figured it out.

Plymouth - Bluegrassin' in the Foothills
Tom Tworek took some
pictures of us at the Plymouth Bluegrassin' in the Foothills
emerging artist competition. We're proud to have emerged and
look forward to playing there next year!
This is the mighty John Kael playing bass with the Crows
for just how long nobody knows.
The Crows took the stage for a quick set at Jake Quesenberry's
first and hopefully not only Brown Barn Festival. It was held
at the same San Martin park as the 2005 Wolf Mountain Festival.
Bill Meiner, our tallest fan, took this photo.
There are more pictures of
the Morgan Hill gig!
April 2006. We played the Riptide
in the Sunset District in SF. Good crowd of good, music loving
folks. I PhotoShopped someone out of this picture because
I thought his "state" might be embarrassing. However,
he's been in the same position and state each time so maybe
he doesn't care!
The producer thought that dark outfits, low light and maybe
a little Vaseline on the lens might improve the look of the
More pictures of the KMVT taping.
There are videos of the show!
Old Fashioned came and went.The Crows hit the stage at
4:00 on Saturday. It was really hot with a lot of flies and
Chris barely alive with the bronchitis. Still, we did good
and brought joy to the hearts of the traditional bluegrass
Our good buddy Bill Meiner took this picture. Where is Alex?
Mojo Lounge in Fremont. The Mojo is a real bar, and yes, they
have cocktails. We had a real good time. A few friends showed
up and the locals were enthusiastic.
The bouncer said we were @3#*Z~ awesome. He also said that
it was a cool bar and they hadn't had a bar fight for three
months. Three months later they had a murder
in the parking lot. So much for that record.
One of our earlier gigs and our only one in a cave so far.
There were no bats.
A slightly better promo photo. And in case you are wondering;
yes, Chris is wearing a sport coat.
Arbor Day in Mountain
Can you find Alex?
Saturday, March 11...It was a beautiful morning. As the
sun peeked through the clouds, melting the snow on the Bay
Area hills, we braced ourselves against the frigid temperatures
to celebrate Arbor Day with the fine people of Mountain
View. It was definitely the coldest gig we've done to date,
but the turnout was excellent and we met a lot of great
people. Thanks to everyone who came out.
Suitable for Framing -
We had a blast at the GOF in 2005. We twisted Tom's arm so
he took our picture. Check out a few more pictures of the
Mighty Crows at Tom Tworek's site.
Look how bright and shiny we are. You wouldn't even know
that we hit the stage at 9 am. In 2006 we
played again but at 4 pm. 2007 we had a prime spot on
Saturday evening just as the sun went down.
A poorly conceived idea for a promo photo. In case you
are wondering; yes, Chris IS wearing a trench coat.
