I mentioned in my last post that this post would feature the Daisy Jug Band that was playing most of the time I was at the Pumpkinfest in Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. They were a talented group of musical entertainers playing both ordinary and not so ordinary instruments. They are worth hearing; but many of the songs were whiskey and beer drinking ballads. I found that somewhat ironic and incongruent with the festival being actively advertised as a drug and alcohol free event. The Daisy Jug Band has been performing since 1971 mostly in eastern Pennsylvania and the Poconos.
So here are the Band characters and I mean characters. To fully soak in the feel of the moment, I encourage the reader to click on the picture to get the larger view.
For one song, the band invited about ten children to come forward to beat on pots and pans to the beat of the music. They did excellent!
These two pictures above and below give the background view of the performance and the Pumpkinfest. The structure behind the stage and the structure shown in the next photo are all part of one the building - the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. At some point I am planning to make that a separate post all its own.
The content of this photo is located mostly to the audience's right of the stage. To the far right is the line of people going into the courtyard to view carved pumpkins.
And lastly but not least I have to include at least one carved pumpkin in this post. The label at the top read Gourd - Bride of Pumpkinfest. And then it has video covers from different movies with one of then being King Kong.
