I’ve been thinking of starting a “Monday Music” post, and had a few albums/songs/ep’s all ready to go, when something happened this weekend that definitely needs a post, and fits in good as the 1st in this new series.
There is a small local band called the McKenzie Brothers that we have seen at Kelly’s parents favorite hang out, May Street Market. Rick had given me their “friends and family” CD a while back, and Riley and Reece had enjoyed “Banana Pudding.” And one time when we had seen them, they sang a new song called “The Haw River Stomp” which was great for us, because we live near that very river, and now Riley and Reece know to lift their feet and say “haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww” every time we drive over it.
You can hear a couple of their songs here:
Well we went to a little party at the Rondello’s, and there was Robbie Mckenzie. I made the mistake of telling Riley that he was the man who sang “Banana Pudding.” Once I did that, it was over! All she wanted was for him to sing it. Over and over and over. And over. And over again. And again. (I think you get the idea!)
Robbie had her read pretty quickly when he said she was “high maintenance all the way!” And he was a really good sport about it and sang that and other songs for her, and took the time to throw her into the lake several times. He is a fun guy to be around!
Here is a picture of them together:
Later, Dominque and Robbie sang “Banana Pudding” for us:
And finally… Right now, “Ob-la-di Ob-la-da” happens to be Riley’s favorite song. So she asked Robbie “are you the man who sings ob-la-di ob-la-da?” And he treated Riley and Reece to that as well:
