Moose Call

When Moose says, “Can you?”
Big Wes Turner’s Trio replies, “Absolutely.”

Thus this late addition to the McMuscial calendar. We’re talkin’ this Friday, folks! Dress for the weather and hoist a few with the Wes ones at venerable far westside hang, The Club Tavern (home of the one and only Mooseburger).
