The Rest of the Story:
1: For years Rebekah Jane and the Back Alley Kats have been performing in small town gigs at taverns and town parks all over the midwest. Good ol' foot stompin, American country, and patriotic music at it's finest; is what their publicity states. And whoa! do these gals ever get the feet stompin, the hands clappin, the boys a hollerin and hootin. Yep!! it's a real down home shin-dig whenever the gals come to town. There will be flags waving, drinks flowin, hawgs growlin. Just about anything you can think of that makes America great. And Rebekah and the gals donate a large portion of the proceeds to a local charity.
2: WAIT!! Did you say, "Hawgs growlin?" What's that supposed to mean? Ooops, forgot to mention that Rebekah and the gal's are partial to big, loud, mean soundin Harleys and they ride from gig to gig in a loud, roarin convoy of Harleys. Their equipment usually comes behind them in an 18 wheeler driven by a grizzly ol' coot named Cooter.
3: Usually, Cooter comes in behind them. But this week the girls stopped off at a roadside diner to grab a bite and Cooter rolled on past them blowin the air horns. When the gals arrived at the next town for their gig, Cooter and the 18 wheeler were nowhere to be found. Well now, that's a fine howdy doody mess if I ever saw one. Rebekah is on the phone calling everyone she can think of that might have heard from Cooter and the gals are rollin up and down the streets lookin for a sight of the 18 wheeler. Now you would think that a truck that size with a full length flag and eagle painted on the side wouldn't be hard to spot. Back at the park, Rebekah is still fuming and now getting really worried that something really has happened to Cooter.
4: Over at the lake, Cooter is standing around scratchin his head wonderin where the gals are. Not like them to be this late, durn them. They always do try to get out of setting up the equipment and all but they usually show up before it's finished. And the crowd is starting to gather and get a little rowdy waitin on the show to start. Finally Cooter hears his phone ringing in the pocket of his jacket where he left it when he got hot setting up. "Dad burn it girl, where you at?" he yelled as he picked up. Seems like a mix up in directions and someone forgot the plans had changed to accomodate a larger crowd. Rebekah and the gals roared off towards the lake and made quite an entrance riding right up to the back of the stage, hopping off the bikes and jumping into a rousing rendition of "God Bless America"
Americana is where it's at this week. So bring your flags, your eagles, your music and join the Back Alley Kats at the lake.
