I first blogged about the New Moon Trio back in December of 2008 shortly after they formed the group.
I took the photos below of the band members (Ross Currier, bass; Lance Heisler, drums; Justin London, guitar) last night at the Contented Cow.
Their physical deterioration is evident. They continue to age like a fine wine.
Ever since his daughter Athena’s comic strip about his anatomical nickname as a kid, Ross Currier has been using his physical attributes to advertise various causes.
This morning it was his Duluth Does Dylan t-shirt which he was using to promote tonight’s Dylan Fest at the Contented Cow, celebrating Bob’s 70th birthday today:
More than 20 Northfield area musicians will perform songs from Dylan’s legendary catalogue in a five hour concert on The Contented Cow’s popular outdoor stage.
I’ve obtained the performance schedule. Ross’ band, the New Moon Trio, performs at 7:40.
It wasn’t raining way back on Thursday evening when the New Moon Trio opened the 2011 Mayfly Festival on the Contented Cow‘s outdoor stage. Webcomic blogger Athena Currier joined in on the vocals.
The Mayfly Festival continues today, rain or shine.
Ross and Tracy and I performed a set at the Contented Cow last night while the rest of the New Moon Trio took a break.
We were hoping for a strong audience reaction and we got it: yawns and boos.
I guess we’d better limit our live performances to talk-shows.
Last night’s farewell party at the Contented Cow for RepJ reporter Bonnie Obremski and her fiancé, Josh Rowan, was a rockin’ good time, with lots of well-wishers, music by the New Moon Trio (plus Bonnie), and a candy piñata. (I’ve turned off comments here. See Bonnie’s post for more on her farewell and comment there.)
