Homestead Homecoming

  • 10:00 am – Roman wakes up with an itch in the back of his throat. This itch, he knows, is the indication that he is officially sick. The cold weather conditions of Florida have taken their toll.
  • 4:30 pm – we drive the van to Susan’s house once again, to pick up the trailer and Ceeloe and Thacher. Apparently Thacher has also contracted the same bug as Roman, and Roman remembers some sniffling kids at the last schools where we played.
  • 6:30 pm – we arrive at Homestead, a town that was all but wiped out by Hurricane Andrew. We unload and start setting up at Main Street Cafe. The sound engineer Scott is the epitome of professionalism, efficiency, and humor rolled up into one. We have a very pleasant set-up.
  • 8:15 pm – we perform two sets for an audience of diners. The house chili, made by Duane, is the most incredible vegan chili we’ve ever had! The performance, the audience, the ambience all contribute to an incredible experience.
