Comments: I'm continually amazed at what you can find on the Internet! Out of the blue I type Ophir Prison in the browser and you guys pop up. After 25 years the band is still going, and what's more amazing, I actually recognize some of the faces. John and Bob, you bring new meaning to the word "lifer."

Comments: YOU GUYS ARE GREAT! Saw your performance at the New Year's thing in Old Sacramento and wished I'd have gotten there earlier to catch your entire show.
PS] Say hi to that little bald guy that sits in front? My girlfriend's friend wants to rub it all night long...

Comments: I want to be on your e-mail list. I have tried to "sign on" but have not been succesful. Say Hi to Boner. He was in the Mine Shaft at least once, and left sober. I'm afraid he might not make it with you guys.

Comments: I've heard rumors that Frank the trained chicken is contemplating entering the religious order of Franciscans. If he pursues that path while continuing to do his schtick with his trained tubist, does that mean that someday he'll be a "whole cut-up friar"? Just asking.

Comments: Just wanted to "e" a note to say how much I enjoyed your concerts at this year's Jazz Festival. I heard the Band for the first time at last year's festival and made it a point to attend several of your concerts this year.
Thanks for your music, fun and continuing support of BEER!
P.S. I think it's great that you march in the streets of Old Sac. It makes the Jubilee all that much more like a festival rather than a string of concerts!

Comments: I have seen you marching at many of the Sac Jubilees but this year was the first time I actually got to sit and hear you play. You are fantastic. I love your group. Your new CD is excellent. Wish I had bought more than one so I could send some to my kids in Tennessee. Being a fellow musician I really did enjoy your group at the Firehouse Lot. I felt sorry for Axel and his heavy drum. Maybe you should get him a stand to set it on for concerts. Hope to see you again soon. Pat

Comments: Judging from the responses on the street, its my reccomendation we gather some new jokes for Rufii. I, being the all-'round-good-guy that I am, am taking up the cause.Since I already receive a pleathe....uhhh... pleathur.....plathora...plattera.... awww screw it... Since I already receive a "crapload" of jokes... I will now begin to actually read them, and submit the ones I deem useable to Rufii for a look-see. If you'd care to join me in my quest... click on the pretty blue name up above ( not THAT far up!), and we'll see what we can do.

Comments: I saw you guys at the '02 Jazz Festival...you ROCK! (okay, you bang and blow and buzz, but you know what I mean...) Thanks oh-so-much for making the day a delight...and remember: never, NEVER pick up the soap! *wink* ~Marya~

Comments: Only two words can describe the gig you guys played at the Freeway Gardens in Old Sacramento for the Jazz Jubilee . . . H O L Y S * * * ! ! ! The band sounded nothing less than AWESOME. I have never before witnessed an audience worked up to such a frenzy. You guys kicked some major butt tonight. Big ups to you all!!
P. S. I don't know if you guys heard up on stage, but the audience were singing their hearts out while you were playing (e.g. Beer Barrel Polka, etc.).

Comments: I don't know about you guyz, but that one-two punch of "America the Beautiful" followed by Sing-Sing-Sing was too much for me... I had so much water in my eyes I couldn't see the frickin music.. must be not enough beer that makes me all sentimental like that but I couldn't face those 500 faces all singing... it would be a much better show if we could do that without blubbering like a buncha babies... The band sounded pretty good from where I was sitting (3 or 4 blocks away...) and tempos must have been under control because I could actually hear individual notes. This is desperately close to being a respectable band!
By the way, whattya think about Ophirs playing a game of "name that tune" with the audience? ..starting with old TV sitcom themes?
