Hey Strettites, This past weekend saw the band roll up to Cincinnati, OH for the first of two glorious weekends at the Argosy Casino. We were without the services of Ray Balz for this show (Ok, go ahead, make all the "Stretta's got no Balz" jokes that you want). Raymond was in Atlantic City, NJ, attending the 54th Annual Deep Fryers Convention. We had a special guest star, Spoons, from the infamous Trailer Park Troubadours on drums for this show. Upon arrival, it was learned that Debra, our singer, didn't have the proper identification and was denied access. This was quite a predicament as Jon, our other singer, was also absent (he sustained multiple head wounds at our last performance and was out on medical leave). The situation was turning grim for our heroes so phone calls were placed, favors cashed in, alliances were created, and back room deals went down. With literally minutes to go, Debra was granted clearance and the show was on! And what a show it was! The place was rockin', the crowd was out of control. The highlight of the evening came when a lady in a wheelchair stood up and started dancing (this actually happened). Extraordinary! Awe-inspiring! It was another Stretta Miracle...
