Honk if you like our music!

June 7, 1998 - Southbridge Concert, at the town common in Southbridge, Massachusetts.
The Crawdad Wranglers performed a cajun and zydeco concert under cover of a large
gazebo on several acres of green lawn. We were discouraged at first because of the rain,
but the common was situated in such a way that automobiles were able to line both sides
of the common to face the stage.
A few brave souls were in front of the stage dancing in the rain, but a count of
approximately 250 people in their cars were also actively enjoying the performance. We
discovered this immediately after our first song when there was a clamoring of car horns
and flashing headlights! It was a different type of audience applause than we were used to,
and quite fun.
