This weekend was busy! After ten years of not playing on stage, Nathan had two gigs. He played with our friend Camille Harp. I think Nathan has known her longer than I have, but I’m claiming her as mine because she is in my monthly girls brunch club and I love her more than my luggage.
Friday night, they played at the The Deli in Norman where I used to go quite often to listen to music. It’s a favorite of mine and I was so glad that Keely came out along with friends Elesha, Shayla, Todd and Tracey. I also had two work friends who came along to watch Nathan in action – Stella and Belinda. We also got to see our friend Erol who just happened to come by.
Saturday night was team roping not far from our house. It was a beautiful setting with very nice people. The irony was – I have traveled to literally hundreds of rodeos across this country and know probably hundreds of people from working PR at rodeo events, but I didn’t know one single person at the team roping. However, Nathan ran into someone he knew.
I have a dislike for flash photography, which made a weekend of low lighting pretty complicated photo-wise. Shayla and bass player Bubba also took some of the photos you will see on this post, but I have no idea who took which pictures. We will just all take credit.
Here is Camille. A guy at The Deli asked us to take this photo so we just cooperated and it turned out pretty well.
Camille is a tough girl. She wears shoes like these. These shoes are so cute, but so very scary to me. I have a lot of respect for girls who wear these kinds of shoes. Me, and my flip-flops, will admire you from afar Cute Scary Shoes.
These photos were taken at the team roping event.
The pictures don’t show it, but the stage hosted several interesting things throughout the evening. A horse came very close to joining the band, a cowboy played a bar stool like it was a guitar and several dogs ran across the stage at the end of the night. And, just so you know … I may be a little biased in my opinion, but Nathan sounded great this weekend!
