Bill treated the audience to three of his originals
Mike's mesmerizing solo
"Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone"
- the fans softly sang along

Your webgal was collecting the cover charge at the door.  A man wanders up in search of some dinner....

RCR_fan: "It's sold out."

Stranger: "Are all these people here to hear those guys?"

RCR_fan: big nod yes

Stranger: "Is another group playing later?"

RCR_fan: "No."

Stranger: "Who ARE these guys?"

RCR_fan: "You aren't from around here, are you.  These are the original Red Clay Ramblers"

Stranger: "I'm not, but I've heard of them!"

The stranger was last seen buying a CD.
