In a few hours we're hitting the road, heading for New Orleans. The first leg of the Winter Tour starts today.


If you're in the Big Easy, do say hello. We'll be working our acoustic sound, with Sarah on upright bass, Dave on acoustic uke...playing in the French Quarter and on Frenchmen on the 19th, 20th, and for THE END OF THE WORLD on the 21st.


We're looking forward to the new world, and to playing two gigs in Arkansas before coming home in time for Santa.

"April’s Empire...roars with an untouchable fierceness, then pauses to bask in the sweetness of life. It’s playful, it’s soulful, and it’s worth every minute."  Annie Weisner,

"When I looked around, I noticed that all conversation in the bar had stopped as all eyes were on the stage. "  Meric Ackerman, St. Louis Nightlife Examiner

"In the course of an evening, you’ll hear airy wisps of ’60s Pop sweetness, Tin Pan Alley ham, Blues swagger, Jazz and Ragtime swing, Gospel reverence, Motown Soul and Classical precision, played with technical precision and jammy abandon."  Brian Baker, City Beat
