Ragged Glory played Iota Sunday night! This is Ryan and Dave Eelman’s Neil Young cover band. They opened for the Last Waltz, the cover band for The Band.
I played vio and sang backup on a couple tunes. Looking back I shouldn’t have because I was already feeling under the weather from the weekend of festivals (post coming soon!). I must have pushed myself just past the breaking point, for today I was sick as a dog just miserable, my throat felt like hellfire it even started giving me a headache.
The show was great though, considering the little rehearsal time we had. Everybody’s probably such a big fan that they already know the songs by heart anyway. It was a rather huge lineup:
Dave Eelman (vocals/guitar)
Ryan Walker (vocals/guitar)
Brian Kent (vocals/guitar)
Tom Hnatow (pedal steel/banjo)
Natalie Tedder (vocals/charm)
Dallas Hudgens (bass)
John Thayer (drums)
Dave Foerter (harmonica)
Susan Hsu (me! on violin/vocals)
Guess who was in the audience! Chris Marchetti, our famous dancing guy! Gotta love him.
