Octoberfest Party

On October 24 Grateful We're Not Dead entertained at the Ontario Gamma Etta Masters Chapter (Kemptville) of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority's Octoberfest Party. (How's that for a mouthful!) Gord was in Tanzania but our good friend, 'young' Al Owler, sat in with the band. We're always glad to have Al perform with us.

As usual, the food was excellent and the beer and Diet Pepsi were cold. The sorority ladies and their husbands were an appreciative audience and a delight to play for. However, we were disappointed with the lack of audience participation when we did Rodney Carrington's Show Them To Me. Maybe next year, ladies.

As is the tradition with group, the sorority made a donation to a charitable institution on behalf of Grateful We're Not Dead. This year, their charity of choice was Interval House, an organization offering a comprehensive range of programs and services to abused women and their children. We think this was an excellent choice.

We always enjoy doing this show and hope to be able to perform for the sorority again next year, "the good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise".

Bruce, Don and Al
