Audience applauds Crawdad Wranglers 

using car horns


by Ryan Thomson


June 7, 1998 - Southbridge Concert, (video clip) 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 park and 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.
