What a fantastic evening we had with our premier performance at Mallow Run Winery in Bargersville yesterday. When day broke Saturday, the clouds were thick and the temperature was low. But, as afternoon came, the clouds parted and we got a bit more heat than anticipated. Once there, the stage was nice sized and we brought a bit more sound gear than normal to be able to satisfy the larger crowds we hoped would arrive.
Our thanks to the folks at Mallow Run for bringing in a bevy of local food trucks that brought out even more people. We had huge group of friends and Pet Monkey fans out in support, but the trucks and nice weather brought an estimated crowd of 500 or so. With no true sound check, it took us a song or two to get everything dialed in, but once that happened, we just started doing our Monkey thang. Kids, grandparents and everyone in between were all out enjoying the festivities. By about half way through our second set, a huge group began to spontaneously dance right in front of the stage.
Before you knew it, we had sang our last song and then an encore and it was time to tear down and go, For all of us, it was a special night and we appreciate all the new listeners we met and played for. Hopefully, we’ll see some of you soon at another Pet Monkey event.
Next week, aside from my So-Low Acoustic Show on Friday in Franklin, Pet Monkey sits silent. The weekend after that, we re-invade Johnson County for two more shows. Pet Monkey plays Whit’s Inn in Whiteland for the first time on Friday night from 9:00 – 1:00. Then on Saturday we are back at St. Rose Catholic School in Franklin for their fall festival from 5:30 to 7:30. Until then, be good to each other and, as always, thanks for your support.
