I've been lurking for awhile and even posted a couple of times, but realized I neglected to introduce myself in the Arrivals thread.

Obviously, like everyone else here I'm a fan of OCMS. I first went to see them at the 9:30 Club in DC after my brother recommended them to me. As a fan of traditional bluegrass, at first I was skeptical but then found I really enjoyed their songs and style. Besides seeing a couple shows at the 9:30 Club, I've managed to see them a couple times on vacation. First, on a trip to Napa, CA, my wife and some friends caught them in San Fran. Then my wife and I saw them in Buffalo on our way up to Niagara Falls. The Buffalo show was my favorite because it was a smaller venue and not jammed pack like it was at the other shows. Most recently, we caught them in Charlottesville this summer on the Big Surprise tour.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

That's cool some of you were at the exact same shows. I forgot to include I also caught OCMS once in Richmond, VA. The sound quality of the venue wasn't the best, but it was a fun show and I especially liked when they played a great version of Are You from Dixie. I was hoping that would've been on their latest album, but oh well...

That reminds me, I like how Ketch always talks about the area they're playing in. He made a good joke about how Richmond reminded him of New Orleans... it's dirty, smells bad, and floods a lot... or something like that.

Thanks again,
