Amusing entertainment acts that we have found
July 13, 2008 4:34pm CST
Money is tight this year and we are in the process at looking at the local county fairs to see what the entertainment was - one had the Beach Boys, another the big smoothies and another had an accordian band - that played ready for this classical music. Ok now I have never heard of classical accordian but I do remember Colonel Potter from M.A.S.H. saying he wife Mildred played classical banjo. Ok...tell me about the local acts that you have found that caused a snicker from you!

Well, I can't say this exactly fits "local acts", but then again, maybe it does. I was in a bar once (LONG time ago, way before kids came along!) and the house band was taking a break. We were all just sitting around talking when this old black man walked in with a piece of cardboard. He sat on a chair that he had pulled away from a table and placed the cardboard in front of him on the floor and poured salt down on it. Next, he pulled out a harmonica and began doing a "soft shoe shuffle" on the cardboard while sitting down and playing his harmonica. Everyone in the place war roaring! Clapping along and singing the tune to the song this man was playing. (I can't remember the name of the song, but it was something most people knew.) The house band couldn't compete after that! LOL
