Dave Bond, south county star of stage and cds, is performing with his band Real Country, between 3 and 6 p.m. at the Chili Cookoff Contest.... Dave is singing songs from his new cd "Goin' Honky Tonkin."
We're fans. Some of us have his very first cd -- autographed.
At the Hunterdon Agricultural and 4-H fair a couple of weeks ago, Dave was playing at 8 p.m. Fans had half of the seats filled before 7. He and his band set up equipment and greeted his following. Dave was showing the hurt from a hip that needs replacing. Oh yeah -- surgery is scheduled a couple of days after he sings at the Chili Contest. Why? Because he said yes to supporting Hunterdon's 300th and put off surgery just to play for us on the 28th of September.
And that's the kind of person he is. Dave's word is Dave's Bond. And when he sings, it comes from the heart. It comes from his roots. It comes from his farm and the earth and land he loves.
Hometown. Old time. Real Country? Real Hunterdon.
