This Week's Freebie from The 1937 Flood

This week's freebie features a different kind of holiday tune.

This time of year, most musicians are trying to think up sweet Thanksgiving-y tunes to share, you know, those songs of the over-the-river and through-the-woods variety. Nothing wrong with that.

But The Flood, well, we’re a forward-looking outfit, so we’re probably the only one’s this week offering you an anthem for Black Friday. Or actually, for Black Friday NIGHT, when your money’s all gone and your mind might just be following it out the door. Click to hear the tune.

This Week's Freebie from The 1937 Flood


This week's freebie features a tune we’ve got cued up for this weekend’s gig.

We’re eager for this weekend’s big gig as The Flood again serves as the house band for the exciting new monthly music variety show, Route 60 Saturday Night! This month’s special guests are veteran singer-songwriters Chet Lowther and Douglas Imbrogno.

For The Flood’s part of the show we always try to have tune or two that features our song bird, Michelle Lewis, who also co-hosts the monthly shows with the great Randy Yohe. Here’s one of Michelle’s numbers that we’ve got planned for this Route 60 Saturday Night. Click to hear the tune.

Remember, the show is this Saturday night, Nov. 18, at Route 60 Music Co., 60 Peyton St., Barboursville, WV. The good times start at 7 p.m. For more information, visit the web site at Route60SaturdayNight.com.

This Week's Freebie from The 1937 Flood

This week's freebie features of little reunion.

Last month when singer-songwriter Rob McNurlin was prepping for his set at the new Route 60 Saturday Night show, he brought his tunes to a special Flood rehearsal.

Well, he must’ve had a good time, because weeks later he found himself craving another little dose of Floodishness, and we’re so happy he did.

Last night Rob came back, out of the dark and damp, for another evening at home for his adoptive Flood family. Click to hear the tune.

This Week's Freebie from The 1937 Flood

This week's freebie finds us not wanting to say goodbye.

There’s just something warm and special in the air whenever we come back together after taking a week off from the rehearsals. It’s almost like we don’t really want the evening to end, as you can probably hear in this final tune from last night’s gathering.

Listen to how everybody takes an extra chorus to keep the song going just little bit longer before they have to pack up the instruments, say the goodbyes and head out into the cold, damp dark. Click to hear the tune.

This Week's Freebie from The 1937 Flood

This week's freebie finds us already reminiscing about a great weekend.

We made some serious memories for ourselves last weekend, playing at the latest edition of what we hope will be a new tradition for us, performing as the house band for the monthly “Route 60 Saturday Night” music variety show.

We even got to wrap up the evening with one of our all-time favorite songs, Walt Aldridge’s beautiful bittersweet ballad, “No Ash Will Burn.”

Here it is in the last five minutes of the show, complete with host Randy Yohe’s closing thoughts. Click to hear the tune.

This Week's Freebie from The 1937 Flood

This week's freebie finds us with one of the guests for this weekend’s big Route 60 Saturday Night show.

We’re especially happy that the guest artists for this show will be fiddlin’ Bobby Taylor and his group, Kanawha Tradition, and the legendary local singer-songwriter Rob McNurlin.

Now, as usual, The Flood is the house band for these monthly shows, but this month Rob has asked us to also back him up in his portion of the show.

Last night Rob dropped by The Flood rehearsal so we could work up some arrangement, and we had a house full of friends and neighbors coming by to hear him. Here’s a tune from the evening, the southern gospel standard with that special Rob McNurlin touch: “I’m Working on a Building.” Click to hear the tune.

This Week's Freebie from The 1937 Flood

This week's freebie finds us prepping for another fun night later this month.

We’re gearing up for the next installment of the new Route 60 Saturday Night! show.

The Saturday, Oct. 21, edition of this new musical variety show will feature singer-songwriter Rob McNurlin and West Virginia fiddle champion Bobby Taylor as our guest artists and, as always, The Flood as the house band.

At last night’s Flood rehearsal, we decided on the tunes we’ll bring to the evening, starting with this great old 1960s rocker to get things started. Click to hear the tune.
