Lori, December 5, 2004 - Main Street, Yuma
Originally identified as "Poi Dog Sings!" Nick sings this at our Paradise Casino gig on
St. Patricks Day, 2004. Virtuoso kazoo solo by Patti Taitano. Now appears on "Bedrolls."
A fine tune we picked up from the Clancy Brothers/Tommy Makem. We made the crowd at
Patti's Send-off sing along. Also appears on "Bedrolls" in a tarted-up mix.
From a rehearsal June 21, 2005, as Jon was testing his handy new recording gizmo.
Rehearsal, June 28, 2005. Jon's gizmo strikes again.
Backwards. Hey, why not?
A quick romp through the melody guide of a new Lorna Bright tune.
Gonzo advertising strikes the Yuma airwaves.
CRK's first public performance with Lorna at the 2004 Colorado River Crossing Balloon
Festival. It's a rather large Windows Media file, best viewed with a high speed connection
The actual taping of "Angelina" from "Big Fog" on location at the ladies loo of the Yuma Buffet Bar.
This also appears on the Big Fog Album page
This ran on KYMA/Ch. 11 in the weeks before St. Patrick's Day 2004. Note "Accordion Yoga" Nick
as he dances across the screen.
After the original taping of "Angelina," dragging all besotten willing participants into the
ladies bathroom to belt out the song became a ritual when performing at the Yuma Buffet.
This rendition took place at Patti's Send-off on December 14, 2004.
The tail end of "Ballyhooley" recorded by Kathy Kehl at Burgers & Beer, St. Patrick's Day 2005.
From a performance at Lutes Casino, late 2005. We're pleased to have gleaned these few seconds
of band performance from among the many sterling shots of James and Mary Miller and the dusty
crap on the ceiling at Lutes.
Way Too Many Pictures

for Patti's send-off
This is the handbill for Patti's send-off that was posted at the Yuma Buffet.
Here's a performance handbill for our dates leading up to St. Patrick's Day.
Submitted by Perry. Perry is smokin' somethin' late at night.
It wasn't a real fancy bar, but, dammit, it had heart. CRK's home pub closes.
We are wonderful. Just ask the readers of the Sun. A handbill for our 2004 win.
Yes, it's true. Apparitions of the Virgin Mary appear when CRK plays Lutes Casino.
Personality and Ego
If dogs resemble their owners, this is Rush Limbaugh's.
