Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw
According to Moonalice legend, gambling was not an approved tribal activity. There was a time – ages ago – when the ancient Moonalice tribe gave casino gambling a try, but it didn’t work out. Members of the tribe opened a Go Fish parlor in Nevada, but lost so much money the first night that they closed the place down and left the state. In modern times, the Moonalice band received a gracious invitation from the Las Vegas Jam Band Society to play a gig at the Four Queens Hotel. Only after our manager checked to make sure there was no way to bet on Go Fish did we accept. Boy, are we glad we did. The Canyon Club is a terrific venue, with sofas, overstuffed chairs, a really nice sound system, and lots of music fans. Under the watchful eye of Roadkill Moonalice, the tribe managed to leave Sin City with their wallets intact. Phew!!!
