“It’s going real well. We can’t open until 2 p.m. in Canadian County on Sunday, but right at 2 o’clock we had a crowd waiting to get in. So we hit the ground running,” Cross said. “We can operate until 2 a.m. if we have customers,” Cross said.

Rick Jawnsun and Justin Pruitt, performed with electric and acoustic guitars inside the bar Sunday afternoon. Their sets were scheduled 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

At 7 p.m., the “Sunday School Show,” featured Avery Stinnett and Justine Prine.

He said he has not played a show since the pandemic in March. Nor had he even attended a live music show.

He has missed seeing shows too.

“This is fun. The Crawfish Boil is fun. I’ve been the last few years. Things are returning to more normal,” Dunning said.
