Good to hear about the Bluegrass Thang up in Spokane. Great idea, Jim. Which

many members? Do they publish a newsletter? Hold regular jams or festivals?

bone up on the Top 15 Nude Grass songs:
#15 - My Walking Shoes Don't Fit Me Anymore
#14 - Hold Watcha Got
#13 - It's Only Human Nature
#12 - Dog Bite Your Hide
#11 - Body and Soul

We'll probably have 5-7 bands there tonight. Some are organized, some
are just scrambled from whoever shows up.
As of today we have about 125 paid members in the INBA and we have been
in existence since 1994. We try to bring top quality bluegrass shows in for
the general public's consumption and we'v had Del McCoury,Bluegrass Etc.,
Dry Branch and others. We also sponsor a mini-Wintergrass type event where
we try to bring in a top northwest bluegrass band for a show and a stayover
at a place called the Bozarth Mansion. That occurs the weekend befor the
Super Bowl and we have had the Sawtooth Mtn. Boys, the Knott Brothers and
others. This year we are having another great Oregon band, Sam Hill, come
up and we are really looking forward to it(that will be $10 Dee Ann).
We do have a few small ongoing jams but nothing like Maltby or some of
the things you have down in OR. But we manage to have a good time. At this
time we don't put on a festival and we don't really have any plans to get
into that for a variety of reasons.
- I was at the Sawtooth show last night and Eisler did the old Del Reeves tune
"Girl on the Billboard" (wearin' nothin' but a towel and a smile ) and I
thought that it belongs on somebody's Naked song list.
Inspired, I went to buy the Sawtooth CD and happened to look at the Songs for
Suzi CD, too. In the poor lighting I read the song list and, Lo and Behold,
in addition to "Keep on the Sunnyside" from Joe's list, I thought I saw
"Nudeport" (on both CDs!), and "Breaking Nude Ground". Of course I had to
purchase both CDs.
Thinking about it further I realized that, with all due respect Joe, I loved
"Nine Pound Bummer", but you seem to have left out a few "classics" like big
Mon's own " OUT, in the Cold World" and "Nude John Henry Blues". Then there
is the Carter Family/Flatt and Scruggs hit "Jimmy Brown the Nude Boy".
Of course, there are other tunes that belong on the list, when they are done
bluegrass style, i.e.
1. I'm Hangin' Around
2. What Am I Doin' Hangin' 'round?
3. Walking on Nude Grass
4. Let old Mother Nature have her way
5. Blowin' in the Wind
6. The Streak
7. I'm in the Nude for Love
8. Running Bare
9. In the Nude
Of course, Randy Neuman's "I'm gonna take my pants off" and any BARE NAKED
LADIES bluegrass song would work. smiles, chick
