Lemons to Lemonade - Trent Wagler & The Steel Wheels

This past Sunday, my wife and I went to the Concert Sundaes in the Park in Souderton. Each summer, a series of concerts are held every Sunday evening. That evening it was a bluegrass and country folk group called Trent Wagler & The Steel Wheels. Some of the instruments they played included guitar, banjo, string bass, and mandolin. The group that evening consisted
of only three people. The fiddler was not there which was a major disappointment for many. They also did not play many old time favorites. But on with the photos and then some more comments pointing out some of the highlights.

This was the three member band. The songs they sang they played well. They knew how to be expressive both vocally and in body language.

Here's the band close up. They also told some stories - one about how one of their grandfathers had been a part of an underground Amish party band in Indiana.

Here's part of the audience. It's a bring your own chair and blanket event. And it's a great place to meet and talk to friends and acquaintances from the area. My wife and I met quite a number of people that way. :)

This was the ice cream sundae, hotdog, and pizza lines during intermission. Fortunately, we bought our delicious ice cream sundaes before then. I had a black raspberry sundae and my wife had moose track and chocolate ice cream. All in all, it was a relaxing evening out.


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE bluegrass bands, Tim, but can't imagine one without the fiddler. This is a great gesture from the community during your summer months. I love the idea.

  2. Good to hear from you again, Tim. I'm not blogging as much because I'm on Facebook now. Hope all is well with you and your family.

  3. Ice cream and hot dog ! And music ! It seems to me you had a great time (and were very comfortable) !

  4. Thanks, ginnie. We went to Concert Sundaes in the Park again last night. This time the Allentown Band was performing.

    Thanks, fred. Facebook is wonderful and time-consuming, too.

    Thanks, cergie. It was a relaxing evening.
