Videos with the
Gary Froiland Band
Another of Gary Froiland's hobbies is photography, including 3D photography! The following video was filmed in 3D, so if you have
a 3D viewer for viewing 3D on your computer screen, you will see
this video that way. Here is a good one at a cheap price ($5 plus
$1 shipping), the Pixi 3D Viewer (Purple Pixi):

The following song is an old Bluegrass Standby "Salty Dog Blues". Gary is playing a washtub bass which was given to him by Dale Shafer. The washtub bass was made by Arlen Sloan of Saratoga, Iowa.
In the "Good Old Days" friends and neighbors would gather at a farm for a social gathering and old time barn dance/hoedown! It was the kind of fun on Saturday night that you didn't have to be ashamed of on Sunday morning! The song below depicts those days that are still alive at times.
The videos in the song are clips from years past at Heritage Park, Forest City, Iowa where there is still an old time barn dance Saturday night at their annual Steam Threshing Days!
It's fun to get different members of the family to join in with song, and
