<![CDATA[Holy Water & Whiskey - BAND EMAILS]]>Thu, 14 Dec 2017 14:49:52 -0700Weebly<![CDATA[October 19th, 2015]]>Tue, 20 Oct 2015 03:00:20 GMThttp://holywaterandwhiskey.com/2/post/2015/10/october-19th-2015.html     Greetings Campers,

          This weekend “Holy Water and Whiskey” will be playing again on Saturday evening August 15 at Wildlife West Nature Park (30 minutes east of the Big I on I-40) at the Chuck Wagon Dinner.    The nature park and the evening dinner make a fun Saturday destination, and it’s a great place to take out of town visitors to get a taste of our western culture and wildlife.   Remember that you need to call in your reservations for the dinner by 2:00 the day of the show.  Check out the website to get more information about this New Mexico treasure.  

         We will again be celebrating the release of our new CD.  Maggie hinted that she might bring some cake.  Bruce is so excited that he has bought another 5 in addition to the 6 that he bought last week, but we still have plenty left.

          As we reflect back on our history together as musicians, we were pleased to find an old photo of ourselves when we were in the audience at the Woodstock Music Festival.  It’s always fun to look back on how we used to look, see how we have changed (or not).  Take a look for yourself and tell us what you think:   have we changed or do we still look pretty much the same?  I’m the one with the mustache.

Look at that smile - I don’t think that I’ve changed a bit.  Hope to see you on Saturday.

<![CDATA[Wildlife West - Surprise ending to the season ]]>Tue, 20 Oct 2015 02:55:48 GMThttp://holywaterandwhiskey.com/2/post/2015/10/wildlife-west-surprise-ending-to-the-season.htmlGreetings Campers,
          This weekend “Holy Water and Whiskey” will be playing again on Saturday evening August 29 at Wildlife West Nature Park (30 minutes east of the Big I on I-40) at the Chuck Wagon Dinner.    This Saturday is the final Chuck Wagon Dinner of the season, so if you have been intending to make this fun event this summer but never got around to it, here is your big chance. The nature park and the evening dinner make a great Saturday destination, and it’s a great place to take out of town visitors to get a taste of our western culture and wildlife.   Remember that you need to call in your reservations for the dinner by 2:00 the day of the show.  Check out the website to get more information about this New Mexico treasure.  This Saturday will also be a perfect opportunity to complete your Christmas shopping by picking up some copies of our new CD: “Give Us Just a Little More Time”.

     After the show, we will be celebrating the conclusion of another enjoyable season at Wildlife West.  We will delay our celebration until the conclusion of the event.  I was reminded of the merit of this timing by my cousin Clifford.  He informed me that he had personally experienced what he called “premature celebration” on a recent camping trip and he encouraged me to not succumb to the same temptation.  We are happy to report that he is healing nicely, should be getting out of the hospital next week.

<![CDATA[2015 - 9 Years at O'Neill's! ¬†Get a home!!!]]>Tue, 20 Oct 2015 02:52:02 GMThttp://holywaterandwhiskey.com/2/post/2015/10/2015-9-years-at-oneills-get-a-home.html Greetings Fellow Travelers,   

     This Sunday September 13 “Holy Water and Whiskey” will be celebrating its ninth anniversary of performing at O’Niell’s pub on Central at Washington.  We will be playing as usual from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.  We were fortunate to be on their early roster of bands to perform there, our first gig being 9/3/06, and like a bad penny, we have been there ever since.  It is interesting to note that we have discovered that due to an unknown time/space phenomenon, although we have been playing at O’Niell’s for 9 years, we have all aged only 2 years during that period.  All fans who show up this Sunday will be offered this same benefit.

    Also, here’s an update on the band Labor Day activities:  Bruce was doing some hiking next to a stream this past weekend when he noticed a wild animal that appeared to be drowning.  With no regard or thought for his own safety, he jumped in the water and rescued the creature from what could have been a certain watery grave.  That’s just the kind of guy he is…

Greetings Fellow Travelers,

         This Saturday 9/26 “Holy Water and Whiskey” will be playing at 12:30 at the NM Steam Locomotive Society annual fund raiser.  Admission is free, donations accepted.  This ambitious and hard working group of folks is restoring the mighty Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Number 2926 steam locomotive that formerly languished as a museum piece in a park for years along I-40. It is a VERY impressive machine, and you can see it and other interesting items up close and personal at the event.  In the not too distant future they hope to have it up and running and traveling all over New Mexico.  There will be other music there too:  Los Radiators, New Mexico Territorial Brass Band at Noon, and “Holy Water and Whiskey” at 1:30.  This is truly a unique and interesting event, fun for kids of all ages.  The 2926 is located at 1833 8th Street NW, near 8th and Haines NW (near I-40 and 8th).   You can Mapquest the address for a visual map of the area.


    During the steam age, The Romance of the Rails produced many wonderful stories and memories.  My favorite is about a man and a woman, who had never met before, who found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a transcontinental train.  Although initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, the two were tired and fell asleep quickly -- he in the upper bunk and she in the lower.  At 2:00 a.m., he leaned over and gently wakes the woman, saying, "Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket?  I'm awfully cold."  "I have a better idea," she replied. "Just for tonight, to stay warm let's pretend that we're married."  "Wow!  That's a great idea!!" he exclaimed.  "Good," she replies.  "Get your own damn blanket." 

     Hope to see you on Saturday.

 

                                                Take Care,

                             

                                                                   HWW

                                                                   Bruce, Maggie, Scott

<![CDATA[HWW at the Wildlife West Music Festival]]>Thu, 23 Jul 2015 20:04:31 GMThttp://holywaterandwhiskey.com/2/post/2015/07/hww-at-the-wildlife-west-music-festival.htmlPicture
Greetings Campers,

      This Weekend “Holy Water and Whiskey” will be performing at one of our favorite annual events:  The 13th Edgewood Arts and Music Festival held at the Wildlife West Nature Park in Edgewood.  The festival is being held Friday evening thru Sunday evening with a great lineup of local, regional and national acts.  The festival begins Friday at 6 with a chuck wagon dinner, music by the nationally renowned bluegrass group “James Reams and the Barnstormers”.  On Saturday there will be two stages running from noon to 10 p.m., and on Sunday the amphitheater will host musical performances from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.  “Holy Water and Whiskey” will be performing a gospel music set from 1 – 2 Sunday on the amphitheater stage.  The event offers free camping, workshops and open jams as well as jugglers on Saturday and Sunday for the kids and a fabulous art show thru-out the park.   Any young student that brings an instrument gets in FREE to the Festival.  In addition to the music and other events, folks can also see the zoo animals and other park features.

     This very popular festival is held in Edgewood, just 30 minutes east of the Big I.  Last year, to help insure safe and expedient transportation to and from the festival for a bunch of our friends, we hired a transportation company that we found for a very reasonable rate.  We discovered that the reason for the reasonable rate was that they tended to cut corners when it came to passenger safety and approved number of passengers.

     After making it to the festival, many of our friends were “reluctant” to make the return trip with the same company, so we had to ferry them back to Albuquerque in our band van.  It took 34 trips.  This year our friends assured us that they could provide their own transportation.

     Take Care, hope to see you soon.

  Scott, Maggie, Bruce
