On January 4th, 2015, the band had the pleasure of playing a Sunday afternoon concert at the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library. This poster, created by library staff member Leah Sewell, was on display in the hallway outside of the auditorium. It was a grand afternoon.
With the coming of Richelle Basgall the band was back to five members.

The band chose this photo for the cover of "Back Again!"
This could have been the cover for the band's latest CD release "Back Again!" but was a little too laid-back.

A fine evening playing at the Brit Spaugh Park and Zoo in Great Bend, KS, August, 2008. Geese in a nearby pond were quiet at first, but after a tune or two they joined right in with some unique harmony.
At the Iron Horse Concert Hall, November, 2008, in El Dorado, KS. This venue is a big favorite of the band.

Former Euphorian Greg Allen (center) along with Pat Dickey join Key West resident Gary Zimmerman aboard the schooner Western Union to play as "the boat band" for an evening sunset sail. After the 2011 Florida Old-Time Music Championship was canceled at the last moment it seemed like a good idea to journey to Key West instead; it was.
Euphoria Stringband circa 2006. Greg Allen (alias Allen Wrench) is second from right. Greg now lives in Florida, where he is helping keep old-time music happening in the Sunshine State while he also works as a correspondent for National Public Radio.

Performing at the Nelson Atkins Museum. This may have been inspired by people telling the band they belonged in a museum.
Hanging out like this seems to be something of a tradition for the band.
Performing at Seranata Farms, a long time ago.
