Another unscheduled appearance!

Posted: June 22, 2018 in 21st Century, Rock n Roll

Sparkling Apple made yet ANOTHER surprise appearance at the Freakrock Jam on June 21, 2018, in preparation for our 50th Anniversary show in 2019. There’s no stopping us now, apparently — this retirement crap is highly overrated! Seen here are a few shots from that night (the first two taken by Rosielynn Crosby, and the one with Captain Maniac out front photographed by Mike O’Connor). With the battle cry, “Play Some CCR, Man!”, we started off with Born on the Bayou, after which Captain Maniac came out front from behind the drums and offered a lovely rendition of The Doors’ tune, Roadhouse Blues (Chris Murray Driver bravely manned the drums for that number). We ended our brief three-song set with the old ZZ Top chestnut, La Grange, and then it was all over but the shouting! Pointing at Art in the second photo is none other than Lisa Freakrock.

    I was a bouncer at the Scottsdale Inn in the 80’s. I used to love the the weeks when you guys played. The music was awesome, the entertainment was second to none, and the fights I had to break up were hellacious. Your sound guy gave a cassette of you guys playing so I could listen to it when I was in college. I wore that tape out. Thanks for everything.
