Zydeco On Steroids

Even on sports shooting mode, I couldn't get a good blur-free picture of these Hell Raisers! That pose right there of Alex, on frottoir--scrub board bib--is the split second he landed on his feet before lift off again. He was like a little twig caught up in a tornado, but totally in charge of the energy zapping through his limbs and rubber neck.

Alex came out on stage before the Doop-meister (my choice of appellation) appeared, to get the audience revved and ready for Dwayne Dopsie (pronounced "Doopsie,") to come out and show us why Les Haricots was created in the first place.

If you weren't there last Friday night at the Ogden Amphitheater, I hope it was because you were at the Blue Grass Festival at Fort Buenaventura. Also, if you weren't there, you won't be able to get even a sense of how good this was from anything I can write about it. But let me just say, that Doopsie-guy can ZYDECO!! Don't pass up a chance to experience this if it ever comes your way again.
