The documentary "Harley & Annabelle - Living Legends in Erick, Oklahoma" is now available at filmbaby.com (http://www.filmbaby.com/films/4471).
Two years in the making, this documentary reveals the story of transformation of a couple of struggling, conventional-business entrepreneurs into wholly unconventional entertainers now responsible for dealing out "Insanity At Its Finest" for thousands of travelers coming to Erick, Oklahoma from around the world specifically to see Harley & Annabelle, "The Mediocre Music Makers" and their "Sandhills Curiosity Shop".

Harley and Annabelle, The Mediocre Music Makers, have announced they will be cutting back on the number of tour groups they will entertain this coming season. Why? At age 63, to spend more quality time with each other, to get more rest and relaxation between tour groups, to have more time to upgrade their Mediocre Tourist District, to expand on musical projects not included in their Mediocre Music Program, and to hone their craft.
"Even though the number of tour groups stopping in Erick to see us has increased each year, we've decided it's getting to be a little too much for us to keep up with.", Annabelle told me a few weeks ago. "We need more time for ourselves and for keeping our chops up to provide the best show possible for the groups we entertain." Harley added.
Last season (April through October, 2008) Harley and Annabelle entertained approximatley 300 tour groups, sometimes hosting three to four consecutive groups a day arriving and departing within minutes of one another. "It's fast-paced and now that we're in our 60s it is getting harder and harder to keep up on enough practice and refinement of our show to keep it fresh and exciting,", Harley said. "Then we're so worn out we don't have the energy to do much together afterward, if you know what I mean." he added, with a wink and a nod.

With over 300 overseas tours visiting Erick to experience Harley and Annabelle during this 2008 tourist season, Harley and Annabelle have announced that their last scheduled tour was Monday, October 13th.
They will now be resting, relaxing, and rejuvenating to be ready, up and running, for next year's entourage of overseas tour groups coming to experience Harley and Annabelle.
During the off season they plan (time, energy, and weather permitting) to upgrade their Redneck Castle.
