June 11, 2017 Greg Gioia No comments exist

Yesterday’s wedding took place at a venue I’d never played before: Oz Farm, an off-the-grid farm in the tiny town of Manchester. I drove 4 hours, much of it on winding, rural roads, to reach the farm. The drive was long, but pleasant, and provided much in the way of beautiful scenery to view while driving.

The farm is certainly remote, and as promised had no electricity, cell phone service, running water, etc. A generator was on-site so I could plug in my equipment, and the event ran smoothly. The dance took place in a large barn, and the guests were very much in a dancing mood. I ended up playing an extra half hour or overtime to accommodate the guests. And here is what they danced to:
