December 2008

We arrived in Chishom Minnesota on June 26th and proceded to check out the local entertainment. Thursday night we joined other accordion players lead by Sam Pecorilla at the Moose Bar in downtown Chisholm. Friday night found us at the Slovenian Home where Denis Ficor was leading the jam sessions. And Saturday night we were back at the Moose Bar with Sam Pecorilla. Sunday night the hearty few stayed and played at the Sports Bar. No photos were taken by anyone we know for the Saturday or Sunday nights.

Meanwhile, during the day we enjoyed the other bands playing at Ironworld and played three sets (two on Saturday and one on Sunday).

Below are a sampling of photos of us playing at all these venues.
