Big surprises and great times in Indianapolis!!!!
There is oh so much to tell. We arrived in Indy on Monday, and the last few days have been kinda a whirlwind. Tuesday was a great opening night; a really cool theatre, a suprise performance by David (one of the Thunderstudies) on bass, and an opening night party at the Rathskeller. It's at this restaurant/bar that our Million Dollar Brewski was unveiled, and we finally got to try some! It's great!
Last night came the BIG surprise.....W.S. "Fluke" Holland, best known as being a part of Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Three, recording the original takes of Blue Suede Shoes and Matchbox on drums, AND being part of the recording of the Million Dollar Quartet, played with the cast onstage! That's right! He came up on stage and played Matchbox and Run Run Rudolph with the boys! Beforehand, we had the pleasure of getting some pictures, talking to him, and hearing some great stories about how he got his start.
Today, a bunch of us were lucky enough to get a personal tour at the Sun King Brewery, makers of our Million Dollar Brewski! I've never taken a tour like that, so it was cool to see the actual process of making beer.
So, enjoy the videos and pictures, and stay tuned for a lot more news in Florida!
