OYSTERVILLE — When the barbershop-style quartet Social Insecurity took the stage at the historic Oysterville Church to start their Water Music Festival concert Saturday afternoon they looked a little out of character.

Instead of the traditional straw skipper hats or bow ties, the four men were dressed as nuclear power plant scientists and singing about how safe the Trojan power plant, formerly of Rainier, Or., was.

But after a few sounds affects it became clear that not all was well, as one of the quartet emerged with fried hair and a third leg. And when he began dancing with the extra appendage, well, the audience really got into it.

The show was one of three concerts that made up this years Water Music Festival, which honored American composers of popular song. The opening concert featured the Greta Matassa Quartet, while the Saturday night finale featured a performance by the Tangletown Trio in the “lighthouse” building at Leadbetter Farms.
