Lanigan's Ball was a great start. Captain could give you full people
details, but we had a good thirty or so people who turned up for the event.
We got there around 2:30pm. It was hotter'n hell. So we decided to hold off
on playing anything for a bit. Meanwhile, a small crowd was gathered in The
Captain's house trying to wake from the previous night's festivities.
We sat around jabbering and bearing the heat until about 5 or 6. Finally, it
cooled off enough that Andrew and I started to play. We played a bit until
the roast pig was done. Then we ate, and a wonderful breeze took over as we
The alcohol really kicked things off as a group of us gathered in a circle.
We played some more with Catriona doing a few songs, and us bring into some
freaky sing-a-longs until late.
All in all, I had a great time. Captain tells me we broke even financially.
And we're already talking about the next Lanigan's Ball. We're talking about
the last weekend in February which is before NTIF...and should be a helluva
lot cooler. But we'll figure out more in a couple months, no doubt.
Special thanks though to The Captain and his Da for all their hard work in
putting on this killer event!
