A Duo and Those Damn Quails…

So we had an excellent night of entertainment with the Jerry Branch Duo. They really filled the house and the music kept the room alive. I have to say, I just love the vibe of our little bar. All these great bands that fill this little bar, fill me with such awe at the talent. So at the end of the night after Moores closed down I had the opportunity to meet The Damn Quails. I served up a naughtily named beverage and giggled as I watched these bearded musicians drink their post-concert elixirs. I tried to evoke some more tunes to no avail, but I did get a chance to chat with them for a little bit. What a cool bunch of dudes from Oklahoma. Next time, I’m taking the night off to watch them cause I caught a glimpse of them on Youtube and they looked like they might be Damn fun! Plus, I love their Band Art!
