Don't believe everything you read, just what you read here

Some of you may have noticed today's "Pulse" supplement to the Daily News and the article about the Spokane-based "Big Red Barn Band" playing the Dahmen Barn this weekend. Don't despair, the Palouse's favorite big band, The Hog Heaven Big Band, will be wowing the crowd this Saturday, May 22, as scheduled. In fact, you now are on notice of two great back-to-back shows at the Barn: Hog Heaven Big Band on May 22nd and the Big Red Barn Band on May 29th (practice saying that 3 times quickly). Go ahead and splurge - swing with Hog Heaven this Saturday (the 22nd) and then come again on the 29th to enjoy the Big Red Barn Band - you can't get much better than that.

Shaking the Palouse

Well, well ... Saturday the 22d is almost here and the Hog Heaven Big Band is almost there - at the Dahmen Barn in Uniontown, that is. Keep checking for the new set list being put together to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mt. St. Helens shaking the Pacific Northwest and dusting herself all over the Palouse. The music was great 30 plus years before then and all the more 30 years later - that's 60 plus years. Polish up your dancing shoes, tune up your ears, and join us for a great evening in Uniontown, Washington (there will even be a special rhythm section to boot). See you Saturday.
