Who Was There?
According to Moonalice legend, Elko was founded as the Eastern-most depot of the Central Pacific Railroad in the years before the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. But did you know there were people here when the railroad came? Yes, indeed. There was a small Moonalice village on this very spot. It was considered by some to be the best small Moonalice village on earth. Hemp farming was not easy, so they opened a bar and wagon stop on Trail #80 heading west. Moonalice bands played every night and the travelers had a relaxing smoke after the difficult trek from Salt Lake City. When the railroad came to town, things changed. Life moved much faster. No one had time for music and smoke. They just wanted to get there. But in spite of this, the town that is now Elko persisted and then grew into a thriving community. From humble Moonalice roots, a great moonicipality was born.

According to Moonalice legend, at its height the Moonalice Bar & Bud Stop in present day Elko was the entertainment capital of northeast Nevada. The matriarch in those days was Red Lion Moonalice. Red Lion wasn't much to look at, but she was a great matriarch. Under her leadership the Bar & Bud Stop innovated like crazy. They created Ladies Night, where Ladies got in free and guys had to pay big time. They had an open mic night, where guys named Mike got in free. They also invented the sports bra. It was actually a sports bar, but the sign painter was dyslexic.

According to Moonalice legend, the great explorer (and bass player) Greyhound Moonalice liked to stop in Elko on his travels west and east. He said he like the Cowboy Poetry Museum. In fact, he liked it so much he opened a Moonalice Poetry Museum of his own. We consulted the Legend, but we could only find one poem. It goes like this.

There once was a player named Alice She gigged playing bass in a palace Then she broke a string Which forced her to sing Which to some in the crowd felt like malice

According to Moonalice legend, today, April 4, is International Landmine Awareness Day. I don't know if landmines are a problem here in Elko, but we're not taking any chances. When you leave the show, watch out for land mines.

Benefit for Home Health Services of Elko. Bass players: 5
