Library Poster

 

 

 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.

 

 

Euphoria Five

 

 

With the coming of Richelle Basgall the band was back to five members.

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.

Between sets at a dance in October of 2008 at the Mahaffie House in Olathe, KS, the band tried on old-time costumes for a group photo. Founding member Doug DuBois (far right, top row) joins the fun. Doug currently plays with the old-time band Hell In The Holler.

 

Key West photoFormer 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.

Hanging out like this seems to be something of a tradition for the band.
