Stu Performs at Whistle Stop Market

Stu performed at the on Saturday, August 25, 2012. Participants at the Market enjoyed his performance. He sang a number of my favorites including, "Give Me as Stone."

The Irregulars have a number of gigs schedule for September. It is going to be a busy month. Our next public performance will be at Rail Fest on Saturday, September 15, 2012 8:30 am. Come to for breakfast provided by NebraskaLand National Bank and music by the Irregulars. We enjoy being part of Rail Fest and we hope to see you there.

We enjoyed playing for the MPCC back to school picnic on Thursday, August 23rd. They had a great crowd at the Cody Park Pavilion. We noticed a number of people dancing. Picnickers took a break from their meal to sing along with the band on "Old Dun Cow". We appreciate the audience participation. A good time was had by all including the band.

We played for MPCC as the result of one of the Gift Certificates we donated to the United Way auction. We are happy to support the United Way and appreciated the opportunity we had to share our music with the faculty and staff of MPCC.

Parade Day

The Flat Rock Irregulars played as part of the Rail Fest float in the 2012 Nebraskaland Days parade Saturday, Jun 16th. We had a great time playing Old Dun Cow, The Bonnie Ship the Diamond, and The Hills of Connemara. We even rediscovered some old jokes. Maggi remembered several of the old Elephant jocks that we long ago forgotten. Strange what baking in the sun for a few hour will do to you. We had fun being part of the float and seeing all the people who lined the street.

We dressed in costumes helping to portray the role of the rail road in forming the West. Rail Fest will join with the Union Pacific Rail Road to celebrate the UP's 150 anniversary.

Thanks to all our fans for waving to us from the parade route. We will perform at the outdoor market scheduled to begin on Saturday, June 23 at the Garden Glove Garden Center, 1800 E. 12th. We will be singing some of our favorite Irish tunes. I understand that the Gospel Lites will also be performing to celebrate the opening of the new outdoor market. The market will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Thanks to Ann for sharing these pictures.)
