    Pokey and Crew, Pokey, we spoke briefly right after your show at the Sh*tty barn in July. You mentioned your Central Time tour stop coming up at The Stoughton Opera House, and that you would be sharing the stage with some of the best string bands in the world. My wife and I already had tickets and were looking forward to that show. Pokey, you were right on, it was one of the most enjoyable evenings of music we have ever experienced! Great concept and stellar performances at the perfect venue. From being entertained by the superb MC Don Flemons, to being bounced around the house by the big sax sound of The Loot Rock Gang, the fun continued as we did some ernest stomping along with The tremendous Tillers and the rest of the audience. Later we were dancing in our seats with The Cajun Country Revival while others danced in the isles. Pokey and band were fantastic as always (the fourth show we’ve seen) and the whole tour finished off the night in perfect fashion! Thanks for the great time! When we spoke in July I also mentioned that I can relate to your songs about rivers and that one could float to St Louis from where we were in Spring Green. Pokey, I think it’s time for you to really experience the rivers you write and sing about and include it in a tour. You could start out at Prairie du Sac (just up river from Spring Green) with canoes on the Wisconsin river where I would offer free guide service to the Mississippi. (I know of quite a few historic venues on this stretch for possible shows). I would consider that part of the trip to be the Huck Finn experience. Then you could trade the canoes for a riverboat on the Big Muddy. I suspect you could float to St Louis, Cairo or all the way to New Orleans if you want. You could call it The Riverboats Shuffle tour! What do you think? Good luck in your careers. Steve
