Groton Cong. Church Dinner

This will be the  4th year in a row that the Eight Mile River Band has played for the Spring Dinner at the Groton Cong. Church and this year’s theme for the dinner is a Hawaiian Luau.  We won’t however try to make the transition to Hawaiian music.. but will just stick with what we know… Bluegrass. It’s likely that our fiddler Rachel may be occupied with her new baby boy at that time.. so we’ve invited Bill and Marilyn Reveley from the  ”Grass Routes” Bluegrass band  to come down and do some pickin’, grinnin’ and fiddlin’  with us. Should be a great time, great music, and a great meal.  Hope to see y’all there.   Note: Sadly, the date has been revised from Fri. Apr. 27th to Fri. May 23rd due to death of Cong. church pastor Dwight Dutton.
