Backwater Photo Album...
This is the version of Backwater that began playing in the Spring of 2003. For obvious reasons we refer to it as Backwater v2.0. Chris Sauke on bass, Bruce Bryant on guitar (front), Scott Fischer on guitar, Ed Dvorak on drums, and Steve Dikkers on guitar. The car belonged to Steve's brother Gene. It was a 1969 AMC Hurst SC/Rambler. Jim Pfaffly took the photo.
In the spring of 2004, the U.S. DoJ's Witness Protection Program told Chris it was time to move on. (Wait...forget that you heard that.) Backwater made an offer to Adam Thein that he could not refuse and Adam became Backwater's bass player. This is Backwater v2.05.
At a recent wedding reception in Iowa City, Pat Glenn of First Impressions Photography, was nice enough to snap a group photo of Backwater. We think Pat does a pretty good job. If you are in the Iowa City area, and are looking for a photographer for your special event, give Pat a call at (319) 455-2329.
Backwater plays at Clayton Ridge High School about once a year. It makes sense to do that because most of us work there and if we don't work there, we have been (or still are) students. The 2004 concert was sponsored by the Random Acts of Kindness (R.A.K.) class. For the concert Backwater swelled from its normal complement of 5 to 11.
Backwater wives, Sue Dvorak and Joan Bryant, along with Jan Krall (friend of the bride) were among the group that helped Backwater welcome in 2004 at the Cafe Mississippi in Beautiful Downtown Guttenberg, Iowa.
On Monday night, June 28, 2004, Backwater played at the Grand Excursion 2004 Street Dance. Here Backwater guitarists Steve Dikkers and Scott Fischer are jamming on "Taking Care of Business." Backwater's appearance at Grand Excurstion 2004 was sponsored by Aquila, one of our local energy suppliers. Photo by Gary Dikkers..
Bruce Bryant always works the crowd up to a frenzy with the help of his friend "The Magic Tambourine." Backwater helped celebrate Rod McClane's birthday on November 30, 2004. Rod is the owner of The Stadium, and Backwater just happened to be playing at The Stadium that night. Speaking of playing at The Stadium, Backwater will be bringing in 2005 at The Stadium on New Year's Eve 2004-2005.
