Big Gig

Tallulah says, "Y'all come to hear Rick and Jilda, Darlins'" 
We have a performance tomorrow night that is a big deal.

The Community Foundation contacted us last month and asked if we would consider performing before the World Premiere of The Bankheads. It's a documentary based on the Bankhead family. 

There were U.S. Senators, Representatives, and another of the family was a federal judge. Tallulah Bankhead who was a famous screen actress was also a member of that family.

The University of Alabama did a documentary on the family and tomorrow night is the premiere of that movie. 

I'm not sure how many people will show up, but it could be a few in the amphitheatre when we play. We are so excited.

We've practiced until our fingers are raw. It's in the hand of the music gods at this point.

  6. You will do great and I would love to be in the audience. I know Tallulah's mother was very beautiful and Tallulah is no slouch in that department either. She was quite the wild thing.

    1. Hey Emma, that is Tallulah. I photoshopped her in the picture. She would be there if she was still living I'm sure :)
