David Loehr has unveiled his art-deco building at exit 59 off Interstate 69, Gas City, Indiana.  These bands played for the guests on Saturday, May 15, 2004.
There were three or four bands.  I was in and out so much that I got more confused than usual.

This sound crew  is the greatest.  They drove everyone around in golf carts.  Their sound control was the best I’ve heard.  And guess what, their main focus these days is making videos of weddings and receptions.  Contact information:  (lost it, will find it soon.  my bad)
