Preparing for Diamond Teeth Mary!

The Flood is pleased and honored to be invited once again to participate in the wonderful Diamond Teeth Mary Blues and Arts Festival this weekend in downtown Huntington. We're set to play Saturday afternoon at Heritage Station. Last night was a blues night at our weekly rehearsal and here's a great old Mississippi Sheiks tune we're working on the show. Come on downtown and party with us Saturday afternoon.

Throw My Chicken Out the Window

We in the Family Flood makes our own legends, often with a little help from our friends, and sometimes the help, such as it is, is all by accident. Now, at last night's rehearsal, we got into a real Dylan mood, and we had been singing back-to-back tunes by Bobby for a half an hour or so when our old buddy Richard Cobb, on hand to listen to music, misheard a particular lyric and… well, take a listen to what happened next!

Brother Sun, Sister (Blue) Moon

The Family Flood had a flat-out ball last weekend at our show in Trinity Episcopal. As Floodster Paul Martin observed afterward, we had truly a "musician's audience" on hand for that show, knowledgeable folks who applauded good solos and tight harmony as well as favorite tunes. We could have played for them all night. And Friday was also the night of a rare blue moon, a fact we didn't pick up on until the very last minute, but at least in time to revise our set list to include a little tribute to that lunar event. Here is the wrap-up of our first set on that enjoyable evening in downtown Huntington.
