Finding Alchemy

Guests, We’ve Got Guests!

We’ll have a whole slew of guest artists on stage with us this afternoon.

Floodster Emerita Michelle Hoge is driving in from Loveland, Ohio, near Cincinnati to sing with her old band mates. You know a room just can’t help but rock whenever Da Chick Singer is on the premises.

Our old buddy singer/songwriter Douglas Eye (aka Doug Imbrogno) also will be helping us. We in The Flood’ve been digging Doug for … what? Decades!

We’ve shared the stage with him at more shows than we can remember, and last week, Doug joined Charlie and Alchemy’s Mike Murdock to chat about the show on WSAZ-TV. For today’s show, Doug has crafted a 30-minute set, a show-within-a-show, as it were.

And that’s not all! Also on hand will be our visiting hoodoo guru of kazoo. Ed Light is coming in from the Washington, D.C., area with a whole bag of tricks.

As you’ll recall, Ed sat in with us last month at the Bowen House, and we knew right away we were going to have to introduce him to the wider Family Flood. Ed will this afternoon’s visiting professor of kazoory. You don’t want to miss this.
