Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers

   Posted by: John   in Fun Stuff, Music

Karen won tickets to go see Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers.  Yes, that Steve Martin.  At the time she got the tickets I did not know that he was a banjo player and bluegrass musician.  Well, he is.  And he’s good at it too!  So we braved the heat and sat on the grass at the outdoor place and listened to some pretty dang good music.  He put some comedy into it as well.  All of the songs except for one (Orange Blossom Special, and that was an encore) were his music.  Some were straight instrumentals, but they sang some songs as well.  The Steep Canyon Rangers sing 4 part barbershop style very good.  The vocal songs were almost all comedic.  I mean, when you can sing about being happy about breaking up with someone (Jubilation Day)…that’s fun stuff.  Or, a song inspired by a dog that wanted his owner to chuck a ball for him. 

Anyway, they aren’t the best pictures, but here’s a couple of Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers.  Click to see them full size.
