The Route 66 Musical Ambassadors
The Road Crew opened for The Grass Roots at the International Route 66 Festival in Joplin, MO on August 3rd, 2013. When we kicked off our set there was about 5,000 people present! By the time we concluded, the organizers estimated a crowd of 15,000! Our largest audience to date. What a thrill it was to have been chosen as the opening act for the Roots. We're still coming back down to earth after having played this event! We played in Galena, KS the evening before to about 500. That was a blast for us as well as we were playing for true roadies! We concluded our tri-state tour on Sunday afternoon with a smaller more intimate concert at Laurel Kane's Afton Station in Afton, OK. We are so blessed to a part of the Route 66 family! Thanks to the City of Joplin for making all of this happen! Thank you everyone!
