Carl Erickson and the Home Town Band will once again play at the Snoring Sasquatch on Saturday.
“Sad I am to say, this will be our bass-man Gary Snow’s last time around with us,” said Erickson. “He will be heading to Montana. However, not to raise a crop of dental floss but to continue on with his successful business, Tabletree Juice — the finest in the world I might add! In so doing, we in Creston are losing a great friend and wonderful bass player.”
Velle Huscroft-Weitman will be playing violin and singing both lead and harmonies with Erickson, who is honoured to have Donnie Clark playing trumpet, Adam Koenig drumming and Micah Snow (Gary’s son) playing guitar.
“All these folks are professional from top to bottom,” said Erickson. “As for me, I’ll be playing rhythm guitar, some tenor saxophone, and mostly singing.
“We have a few new cover tunes we’ve picked up for you to enjoy, and, of course, my originals. We even have one written by Charlie Chaplin called ‘Smile’.”
The group is glad to be back at the Snoring Sasquatch, which recently began to offer concerts once again.
“I also wanted to add how happy we are that Paul Hutcheson is back in Creston, and we’ll see him at the concert at our beloved Sasquatch — such a great entertainment house for Creston — along with his singing wife, Shelli,” said Erickson.
Tickets are $12 in advance at Buffalo Trails Coffee House, Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, and $15 at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.; the Sept. 26 show starts at 8.
