Best Western Lounge
The friendly little hotel bar (formerly known as the Red Apple) threw a party on Independence Day, and Dom provided the live music.
In honor of the Red, White & Blue, the show featured sets of Rock, Folk & Blues, plus an encore for the few that stayed out late. A couple of patrons who remained for the final set asked to sing "Mustang Sally" while Dom backed them on guitar. It's close to a standard blues song, so it worked out well (Dom had never played it before).
Also, having a show on July 4th meant a rendition of "East Gibson Street Fourth of July," a song that made Dom's first booked show almost exactly three years earlier.
Special thanks to the bar manager, Dan Godbey, who served as Grillmaster for the evening. The barbeque and salads were the best food seen in there since the neighboring restaurant tanked in the spring.
