The Two Man Band are now the official favorite band of "Lewisville( NC),"cultural hub of NC, the real center of the Triad, left of center, all that's left of the center" to quote our favorite guests.
Included are the Brass Bed Co., of Winston-Salem's reenactment of a scene from "that group's" TV program. Along for the ride are a few members of the Purple Flower Gang, including Shane Worden all the way from Oshkosh, WI in his command performance as "PseudoTork." (Shane learned that even a fake Tork attracts ladies and adds that he had a really "awful" time, but someone had to do it! We feel sooo sorry for Shane!) Also pictured are: the Harlequins Dance Troupe performing (with mismatched socks) to "For Pete's Sake,"photos of the real Mr.Peter Tork on grand piano, his Guild guitar and banjo, the also lovely Mr.James Lee Stanley, fans at the autograph session, Peter and James with Miss Lewisville 1997- Janice Henson, the Queen's Court Members- Sharon Morris and Maggie Nealans along with Premiere Sponsor Jewelry 3's Barry Thorpe, the backstage reception/press party and a few inside shots from the stage.

James and Peter in the garden tent where the backstage reception/press party was held. The "pajama monkee" was from the Purple Flower Gang, one of the fan clubs for "those guys from that group." The PFG has headquarters in Muscatine, Iowa. Their fearless leader aka "the big (wo)man" Cindy Bryant, drove down for the occasion.
The priceless Mr. James Lee Stanley checking out his hair. On his right is the equally priceless and lovely Mr. Peter Tork.
"Lovey Dovey", "Your Love Is Lifting Me Higher" "Cukoo" and a song for his friend, Hillary.
He gave us a smile, with a dimple. Here is the real man behind the beautiful clown we all remember from "that TV show." AND Mr. Peter Tork is one of the best musicians around. Period.( We gave him Jewelry 3's "groovy button." "What does it say?" I am Loved. And he is.)
The Harlequins Dance Troupe's Megan, Abbey, Blair, Laura, Leslie, Lacy, Kristin and Amber masked.
"Is the choir ready? Particular attention paid to the choir." The choir in a side stage back up for Mr. Tork's banjo blues version of "Higher and Higher."
