A Busy Day August 14th-- New Odyssey at Parish Fest-- Part 2: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida Like You've Never Seen It Before

Continuing with New Odyssey's set list for the day.  Remember, Three Guys, Thirty Instruments.

And, I should add, some skits like the two I'll be mentioning here.

PROUD MARY--  Ike and Tina Turner version.  Good old Gary Todd came out dressed in drag as Tina Turner, complete with giant-sized pumps for those big feet, and Tina couldn't have done better.  Something ya gotta see to believe.  Who says Gary can't shake it?

COUNTRY SONG/SYMPHONEY-- Eric Copeland.  A Real Hoe-Down.

IN-A-GADDA-DA-VIDA--  Iron Butterfly.  This song starts out with that Halloween Fugue song and the morphs into In-A-Gadda.   Then, the three members do their Blue Man Group on three drums on a stand, taking turns on drums and interacting.

This alone is worth the price of admission.  Wait!  There was no admission charge to Parish Fest.
