Our sold out concert at the Mauch Chunk Opera House was one for the record books! The transfer of energy from the audience to the band and back again started before we even played a note, and continued with everyone rushing the stage to dance in the pit during the encore.

Thank you to the staff and volunteers, who really made us feel like part of their family. Several of us talked about coming back as tourists so we have to time to see the sights and sample the wares of this incredible little town!

We do have a caveat from Larry, a staffer who told us, “If you want people to accept you ’round these parts, make sure you pronounce Mauch Chunk correctly. It’s pronounced like ‘Rock’.” Thanks, Larry!
