Spring is coming !!
you are so patient...I've been a terrible correspondent. What has it been...a few
months since we talked last?? I'd love to tell you that I was busy jetsetting and
being a rock star...

...but the bigger truth is
my day job is kicking my butt! I'm sure many of you can relate...and I bet you can
use a happy hour! Why don't you join us?
MARCH HAPPY HOURS AT LOCAL 46
In March we'll be hanging out
on Fridays from 4:30pm - 7:00pm at our favorite neighborhood bar, the oh-so-friendly
Local 46 at 46th & Tennyson in the Highlands. We'll be playing songs we wrote
and songs we know, and maybe even experimenting with songs we're trying to write/learn.
46 has $3 well, draft, and wine during happy hour and you can order food in from
your favorite Highlands restaurants if you want. Until 6pm, your well behaved dog
is even welcome (but NOT after 6pm when food vendors are in the bar).
Invite your friends. When they ask you what we sound like,
you can direct them here:
Finally, we have
a Noisetrade sampler available for you and your friends to download. If you're unfamiliar
with Noisetrade, they have all kinds of music and it's free to download (with a
tip option if you want to support the artists offering the tunes). Our sampler features
6 songs spanning 4 cds, and is a great way for you to introduce your friends to
WE ASK YOU A FAVOR?
you forward this link to 5 (or more) of your friends right now? We keep meeting
people who have NEVER HEARD OF US. Shocking, right? I bet that's happened to you
too. Why not send them some of our songs for free? We'd be so grateful, and
we're betting they would too. Who doesn't like a gift from a friend?
I thought about adding
one of those notes that said if you forward to 10 friends, you'll win the lottery
and if you don't then you know, bad stuff will happen to you, but Randy reminded
me that we're not really into that here.
We are excited to be planning a return to the Chicago area
in early June. Details are fuzzy but we're hoping to book something in the city,
and are thrilled to be part of the Warehouse Church's 25th anniversary celebration
in Aurora. How time flies! Stay tuned for those details to come together and I promise
to write more often.
Our latest CD,
I have big plans for the world. is still for sale and most affordable
to order directly from us at www.bekihemingway.com. We have kept the price to $5
each + actual shipping costs.
budding writers willing to leave good 3-line reviews on our cdbaby.com page are encouraged to do so!
