A Few More Memories

We thought we would share some more from the show!

So you had that side effect too?
The Elders

Really, Humpty did jump!
Scotty, if only we could do this on a sailboat.

Honey, who are these guys?

Josh make sure you get a lot of pictures of me.

Hal, what are you doing here?

I thought Dr. Hicklicks was playing.

Thanks Esteban!

Does anyone need a lawyer?

Maybe we will offer frequent attendance points!

        NEVAH would like to thank everyone who came to our show on the 18th.  You truly made our efforts worthwhile as you had fun, listened, drank a little (okay maybe a lot), participated, and hopefully at the end of it all had "your fevah relieved"
        A special thanks to Mike Dow for introducing us in such an elegant and complimentary fashion.  I for one couldn't wait to hear the talented group he was talking about and then I realized, "it was us," then, "I got nervous."  Fortunately from the reaction of all that were present I think we came close to living up to Mike's kind words.
        As promised we continued to stretch our wings a little as evidenced by the second set where we featured different groupings of members with some solo presentations.  It warmed our hearts to hear the spontaneous reactions elicited by each vignette.  From the clapping that started with Richard and Larry's mandolin offering to the audible crowd gasp when "Mr. Humpty jumped instead of fell" as told in Hal's beautiful rendition of "Cinderella's Story" to the huge, swelling, cheer that built up as we broke into "Helplessly Hoping" only to be topped by the "pin drop" silence everyone experienced during Ed's solo Big Band crooning, Jack's emotionally stirring dobro instrumental, and Dick's stepping out from behind the drums to play guitar and present a heartfelt version of "Can't You See" we were elated.
        The Next Generation Theatre has become a second home for us and we want to thank Tracey for providing such a great venue for all the musicians in the area to be able to do what they love "Play Music"
        Until next time I will leave you with a few pictures
from Cabin Fevah Relievah Pas Tois, enjoy!

A New Year

     It's hard to believe another year has passed and "NEVAH" has much to be thankful for.  Our families who offer constant support, our friends, old and new, that we have made over the previous years, and the enduring bond shared by the members of our little group and their dedication to make room in their busy lives to get together to "make music."
     This past year we were finally able to record and release our first "CD, Tales From NEVAHLAND an atypical album Part 1."  For many in the band it was their first time in a studio and it was a true learning experience and in the end a very rewarding one.  As our friends, "The Kruger Brothers" stated "you either come out of the first recording experience as a stronger group, or end up breaking up."  Thankfully we took the former road and continue to work on new original tunes, a few of which we hope to perform at "Cabin Fevah Relivah Pas Trois" at the Next Generation Theatre on Saturday, January 18, 2014.
     So to all out there who took the "Road less Travelled" while "Driftin with the Tide" as they rode the "Last Bus to Bangor" wondering whether "I Lean Left, you Lean Right" on that "Hometown Open Road" and experiencing a "Rare but Serious Side Effect" the NEVAHBAND wishes you the "Happiest and Healthiest of New Year's."  Phil the bassman.
