Doctor Doc Mongo,
As you know at Fort Bridger the AMM has a pot luck dinner in the stockade on Saturday night. Would like to invite you to join us if you can. Supper's at 7:00. We may have the Indian dancers joining us also. Should be fun.

I've been trying to reach you to find out when Wierd Harold's memorial will be this August. Hey, you haven't blogged on here since 2008! What's up with that? I'm still living in Denver, CO and would love to see you any time you are in the area. I tried to contact Madame Annie after you gave me her info, but haven't heard back from her either. Blessings on you, Naomi

Caught your and Harry's act at Nowoodstock a couple years back, bought your CD and have been a fan ever since. Why not come back for a repeat performance to Tensleep this year?
Also, sure would like to catch your show again, if I knew where and when you were playing...
January 20, 2012
Halleck wrote some wonderful tunes. I hope they are being played somewhere. Looking forward to the memorial cd from Paul. I remember you playing at the Silver Dollar in Butte many years ago.

I am trying to get a hold of Dean Oliver (a phone number or address for him would be sufficent). All I know about him is that he claims to be a base player from Oregon.
P.S. First time I have visited your Web Page,(Very Impressed) and I am so glad Harry got his equipment back from down South.
A quick response,(say tomorrow - or before Easter - 2011) will earn you a free DVD! You will need a computer to play this one, (no that ain't good) but like the others it should be wourth every penny you pay for it. Let me know where to send it.

Listening to Doctor Mongo and Harry Harpoon is like stepping back in time. The style of their music reminds me of the roots of blues music such as Robert Johnson, Lead Belly, and Blind Willie McTell. What’s best is the feeling you get listening to the music. You can’t help but move to the beat. This style of old time blues can speak to everyone in some way. The way that Doc and Harry play and sing, reaches all the way to your bones. They are a very powerful duo.

Weird. When I tried to call Harpoon's cell phone to book a gig, some guy named David Hamilton answered and said he doesn't know a "Harry". Harry, where are you. Have you been kidnapped? Are you being held somewhere against your will? Who is this man who has your phone number now?

I bought your CD at PPR 09 and everytime I listen to it I get the best memories flooding back. Thanks for helping the memories. I very much relate to "ponies? pleasure palace" since Travis sucked on my toes for my b-day at rendezvous. :)
June 23, 2009
You told me LP Mournful's (Bill of Bill and Eleanor)last name when we were at PPR. I can't remember it to google him.
Please refresh my memory again.
Music runnin through my head again!

Our laid back rendezvous in Red Lodge is still going. In the past few years it has been a struggle to keep this event alive. We were without music last year. We missed your music in the camp. Any chance that you could drop by and get things fired up??? As always, this event runs 10 days that last weekend in July.
Your fellow rendie friends,
Little Turtle and Muley
PS...Muley is Booshway and has made some significant changes that we fight for every year.One thing that Kathy has been sucessful is not changing is the time frame in July. The commitee is again trying to drop the gate fee as we did last year. The traders made money!

Meeting you at the 2007 Eastern was a great honor. Cap'n Billy has told many stories of you and Harry and he loves to be part of your music. Billy has invited me many times to travel west to an event but my responsibilities as a paid fire officer keep me at home alot. I'm hoping to make it to Deans rendezvous in 2008 if I plan now. I'm rambling on---- Takes again for the music at the Eastern, it made it one of the most remorable events yet. catch ya when the wind shifts -
September 16, 2007
It was great meeting Harry at Elk camp this year, just wish he had felt better so he could have stayed longer. Look forward to seeing him again and meeting you Doc. Wilma and Gary say hi from colorado. Woodman turned us on to your music and I must say we loved every minute of it.
August 17, 2007
I met you and Harry at Dean and Midges a while back, don't know if you remember meor not. Any way I'm just wondering if you might beinterested in selling to me wholesale your CD's, I do a lot of shows, (gun shows, knife shows, etc) and I might be able to move a few CD's. let me know what you need if you are interested.

January 26, 2007
It's good to know you're doin' great. I have enjoyed listening to your work & nicely done too I might add!

If you hear from Gary Steiner, please give him my best.

I have been saving a bottle of winer wine for about 3 years to get the perfect night to drink it and the smells and taste of the wine bring back so many memories of wonderful rendezvous gone by. And so I started to see what I could find on the internet and I stumbled apon your site. My sister Marie(nightingale) is going to be recording a song for a musician back east that she just recently met. She has been doing her best to keep playing but this will be the first recording she has done. We are both married with a couple kids each and doing well. Well I just had to post a little hello. Thanks for all the great tunes.
