Van Wert Bluegrass Festival hosts Mad River Railroad


Van Wert Bluegrass Festival really puts on a great weekend!  We loved our first visit to this event now in it’s 6th year.  Great food and six great bands performing 3 shows each.  Mad River Railroad, Brad & Lori’s New Outlook,  Echo Valley, Ottawa County Bluegrass, Foxtail Grass Reunion. & Steve Scott & The Scott Brothers.  The stage is a replica of an old front porch and just a hoot.

Mad River Railroad at 2016 Darke County Fair

RR 2

Mad River Railroad had a great stop at the Darke County Fair Friday evening.  It was opening day and a little rain didn’t dampen the fun.  This is one of our favorite settings at one of the biggest county fairs in America.  Lucas Vickroy sat in with us on bass and did a great job at keeping the beat.  We threw in a couple of songs we needed to do at a wedding the following night.  Home and Sweet Caroline were a blast!  The audience took over on Sweet Caroline chorus.

Front Street Cafe Stop

Mad River Railroad’s Orange Blossom Special made a special stop at Front Street Cafe in New Richmond, Ohio overlooking the Ohio River.  Weather forced the passengers inside but the train was full and rollicking!

Springfield Food Truck Competition

We played and dined at the Springfield Rotary Club’s Food Truck Competition today.  46 food trucks were there.  They had 40,000 attendees for the first event last year.  Looked like they exceeded that this year.  Congratulations to all.

Thanks to Al Turnbull from The Corndrinkers for sitting in on bass.
