|Below we can see how dangerous outdoor Fall events can be: Mark refuses to touch his guitar strings
with his left hand because they are chilly, W's tongue is stuck on the mic...again, Jim has frozen solid
and Steve keeps trying to put his hands in his pockets for warmth. (Simsbury, CT October 2010)

Wanda's Band and guest Photos
|Although not our favorite thing to do, the Melon Farmers even play the occasional
funeral. In this pic, straight out of what could be the tumbleweed scene from "Dr
Zvhawgko" , we are playing "Always look on the bright side of life" not 15 feet from
the casket of the dearly departed. The tough part was to remember not to bop and to
keep our poker faces on, so we did not seem disrespectful of the family's sensibilities.

|Before Wanda joined the band, we had
a life-sized cardboard cutout made of
her and placed it in front of the band
when we practiced. It made the place
seem a lot less like a sausage factory
and Steve liked to stare at the blank
side when he drummed.
Note the movable stand that it is
attached to. Mark liked to play with the
mouth and make it sing negro labor
songs. I could not get the bass to sit
right as it kept falling to the ground.
She made us get rid of it when she
joined the band. I think one of us is
harboring it, like a fugitive.

|This is what Steve
sees when he drums:
Jim and Mark who,
even from behind, are
obviously looking at
their own fingers while
playing and Wanda's
butt. Maybe he takes
pity on the 6 or 8
wheel chair bound
geriatrics that have
been abandoned in
the front row (read
here ONLY row) or
maybe he is wishing
for a hat. It is possible
that he wants to poke
the saggy tent roof
and drain the pocket
of June rain water
onto W's cowboy hat.
