I was asked to chip in a set at Allentown’s 250th Celebration in the downtown area.  I got to hear the Allentown Band’s set of marches written over the years for Allentown, and they finished with Stars and Stripes Forever, a truly great tune.  I caught Jimmy Supra’s blues band at another stage, then came back to do a set at the second stage.  Some familiar faces stopped by to say hello, listen to some tunes, and it was a nice mix of kids, seniors, families and some new faces, as well.  I got to mix adult and kids tunes, tell a few stories and take in the festival.  I also had another stab at the Jubilee Bell, and, yes, I have to sing it higher than A. 


Great sound and I was paid well.  Tomorrow, Godfrey’s Open Mike.
