Reinholds Park, Reinholds, PA on June 29, 2002

Just got home from Reinholds. The show was FABULOUS!!! Marty was in real good spirits, and seemed like his old self. His band got to showcase their talents too, as Marty let each of them do their own numbers. They were very well received. Marty wore a short jacket with long sleeves, and his leather pants. His hair is really getting gray though!! He played a lot of different songs, not all his own. And he played "Long Black Veil"! Unfortunately, he didn't have his mandolin with him this time. There was a meet'n'greet afterwards, and I got to see Patty Double and Pat Johnson and Clarence while we were waiting for Marty to change clothes.

The fire company said this was the biggest crowd they had this year! The fairs are held every Saturday night in June. The first week it was Blake Shelton, then David Ball, Suzy Bogguss, Chely Wright and then Marty. As you can see, they saved the best for last!!!! Marty has a different bus too. This one is gray with just a little black trim. And no writing on it. Marty played about 2 hours, and the crowd was really diggin' it!!! He came out and played another song at the end, cause they called for more! I sure hope we get Marty back here again next year! Maybe with good attendance like that, they will!!!
