I had no idea who New Odyssey were  :-[ so I googled them and watched some YouTube video, or as much as I could stand.Did they play numerous instruments during the performance?
Yep, they played all 30 instruments during the performance. They even  played each others instruments!  The music was  my era and I knew words to most songs.  The Beatles were  a special  selection of interest to me.  The  coat  drums was entertaining.   I danced my heart out at last song  despite my hubby being in the back row with another woman!  I bought the  5 CD's and DVD combination offer.  What a wonderful evening of entertainment , and so age appropriate for FMCA gathering!

GREAT entertainment last night with New Odyssey.

New Odyssey played here at Voyager RV Resort tonight. We enjoyed their music and their talent playing 30 different musical instruments. Three very talented men. They also played at Voyager five years ago.

I'm in awe when someone can switch between multiple instruments like that. Reminds me of a Dolly Parton concert we attended; That lady played and switched between a number of instruments.

Tom,

I used to love watching Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters. Barbara played four instruments and Louise played eight. Irlene only played one.

The final day of the Western Area FMCA rally was  blessed with beautiful weather and a flurry of last minute spending.  Our  group of RVFormites did their part to  help the economy.  Purchases were wide spread and  varied.  I  now have an egg boiler suitable for  the microwave, I have additional microfiber cloths for cleaning everything!  Useful here in the desert!
 
I know of  Silverleaf  purchases, Direct TV dish( including installation) ,  Sealand Technology gauges,generator oil changes,  new refrigerator latches, custom sandals, lip color, silicone measuring cups, new gloves and " almost" motorhome purchases. More I'm sure  but the  "judges" have determined that The  Big Larry  was the winner of dollar amount in purchases!  I'll let him tell his news!

We are off to final entertainment tonight and it should be another blast!   I'll be in the  back row so I can dance with my husband tonight.

Tom, they had one ten-minute segment in which they played all 30 instruments.  And as Betty said, they were "helping" each other play their instruments such as one person strumming the strings on the round part of a guitar and the other fingering the strings on the neck.  (Sorry I don't know the proper words to describe it but hope it gets the point across.)  They were quite amazing.

Well the rally wraps up today and  rigs will head out. I did NOT appreciate the diesel that pulled out at 6:22 am.  So loud!

 But really if  I don't like it I should stay home.  It comes with the territory and it is amazing how the rigs dribble out and cause  little to no back up traffic.  We will head out to Anza Borrego for some  boon docking in the desert and Jeeping and maybe a hike or two. Another day , another adventure!

I believe they said around 1200 plus 130 display coaches and they sold 25.

Thanks Jim. Didn't realize the Mandrell Sisters played several instruments.

I just found a few clips on the Internet but they don't show everything they could do. Irlene also played the Xylophone but she wasn't as talented as her sisters. I just read the weekly TV show was so exhausting they canceled after two seasons.

You guys are slackers ... I think our last one was 2006 maybe?  Still miss being there, too.  Oops, never mind.  I was thinking of Quartzsite, not Indio.
