Cliff Goodwin was as animated as I have seen him.  The band was feeding off the positive electricity coming from the audience.



Mike Colbath keeps a steady bass and a happy attitude.

Christine just kept on rockin’ with some hip shaking songs.



She brought Lee-Ann up and the crowd was clapping and yelling in appreciation.

Christine knew there were a lot of friends in the crowd.  Many of tables were reserved with people familiar with the band.




Hidden in back is Larry Donahue on drums and  percussion.  A great all around night.  Talent and energy abounded.
