Dragon Boat Races a lot of fun.

 I caught most of the Hibikaya drummer’s performing and discussing traditional Japanese  drumming. They even  had a fully armoured Samurai overseeing the show in the sweltering, sunny heat. Little kids dance in front of the performers on a plywood floor and everybody seemed to be having a great summer night.

 On Saturday afternoon, June 24, Dory and the Weathermen played  their usual solid set of country, pop and classic rock hits . Some of the highlights included Carrie Underwood’s  “ Two Black Cadillacs” and their revamped cover of Genesis “ I Can’t Dance” as well as a cool version of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper.”
