It was nice to be invited back this year to the annual Dancin' In The Streets celebration put on by Go Downtown Salem every year. Highlights of this year's gig was watching a man and a large dog two-steppin' to our music. Then there was the unidentified gentleman who has showed up more than once to our gigs to sway to the music (if you know what we mean).

The Oregon Valley Boys were honored to play at this year's Polk County Fair in Rickreall, Oregon. Lots of cattle, sheep and other varmints were on display throughout the fairgrounds (including us). We followed "A Tribute to Patsy Cline" by Jeanne Coady and then Joe Shinkle and his band followed us. Lot's of fun and about as close as you can get to how rural county fairs were back in the day.
