The weather was not the best this evening (rainy at times with a bit of lightning) but in spite of that it was overall a great evening. I got a chance to talk to a number of friends, some whom I had not seen in awhile. Always good to see friends.

The musical guest was Pinky and the Floyd obviously a Pink Floyd cover band. They were very good.

There was quite a large crowd this evening. The first performers were a very, very good group of young musicians from Teton Valley. The featured performer was Carrie Rodriguez whom I have seen perform before at Targhee Fest.

Tonight was my first Music on Main of the season. Last week it was too cold and I did not stay long enough to take any photos.

It was not an overly target rich environment this evening so I only have a few photos to offer here.

Tonight's Music on Main was good as usual. Both bands were good. The main performer was Hot Club of Cowtown. Their music was very danceable so that's what many folks did.

This night's Music on Main had perhaps the largest attendance ever. This is probably due to the musical guest March Fourth Marching Band. They are a great band and great entertainers.

Pictured is my good friend Christopher Conant and his fiancée Becca.

Music on Main had more folks in attendance than last week. Unfortunately the musical group didn't "grab" me.

I had a nice conversation with actor Eric Christian Olsen's dad, Paul. Eric will be arriving in the valley tomorrow but his wife Sara and young son are on location filming a movie (American Made) in which she will play Tom Cruise's wife.

This photo was taken at the last Music on Main concert of the summer. Music on Main once again had some great music. It also afforded the opportunity to take a good many photos of people... one of my very favorite things to do.

It has gotten to the point where kids come up to me and want me to take their picture.

The band that performed was Young Dubliners.

The first of eight Music on Main concerts was held tonight. The band that performed was Blitzen Trapper.

The highlight of the evening for me was meeting actress Daniela Ruah from the TV program "NCIS: Los Angeles". The sun was going down rapidly as I noticed this extremely attractive young lady walk by me. I thought to myself that she sure looked like Daniela. As I don't mind speaking to strangers, I thought I would check this out.

My "hook" to start a conversation was that a number of years before I had seen the actor Eric Christian Olsen, her partner on the show, at Music on Main with his girlfriend actress Sarah Wright. Well it turns out that the reason Daniela was in Teton Valley was to attend Eric & Sarah's wedding the previous weekend. In fact Daniela was there that night with Eric's parents and she introduced me to them. It seems that Eric's parents bought an old barn in 2007 which they had converted to living space.

This evening at Music on Main was my first time seeing Carolyn Wonderland. She was recommended by a friend from high school days who lives in California.

I was so impressed that I bought one of each of the four CDs they had for sale.
