7. Bas-Mati and the Really Big Street Dance, Part Deux (more info)

Friday, September 23rd, 8:00 pm

3rd and Grand, Dowtown Laramie

Fast becoming known as "The Ho Down Before the Throw Down," it's a cross between a pep rally, a barn dance, and a church social, if somewhere in the church there was a gorilla drinking beer. Don't miss this event as Bas-Mati (and around 2000 of our closest friends) will set up smack dab in the middle of downtown Laramie and throw down some R&B, Funk, and a little Hee-Haw improv. Located right between Tommy Jack's and The Third Street Bar -- let's just say you won't be thirsty if'n you don't want to be. Selected audience members will be asked to perform on stage with the band playing a rousing rendition of "Cowboy Joe" on kazoos. Please say you'll be there -- Please?

Com'on...we'll even let you keep the kazoo...
