 Fair weather, friends and fantastic music combined to create a great house concert event for TAO in June.  Gina Dalmas and the Cow-Tipping Playboys were tight and right!  (top right) Bruce Gray sat in on a number of memorable numbers with the band.  (bottom right) Our host with the absolute most, Rick Mapp.  Thank you, Rick, Gina, Bruce, bandmates, Carla, Brian, Rick Jr., Susan and Larry of OFOVA, and all our guests!
