AnnieMac at Britt
Posted Jul 11, 2008 at 12:02 PM I am so glad that our director of programming booked AnnieMac to open last night’s show with Three Dog Night. The AnnieMac band is a band to experience! They are a local band, based out of Ashland, who draws on old-school R&B riffs, deep soul, and emotion-inspired lyrics for hard-edged originals and highly danceable covers.
I really enjoyed the song, "Look at Me, Don't Look at Me." As a woman, I really related to the lyrics of this song. I think good music is the kind that touches the soul, and the AnnieMac band sure touched my soul last night.
We are pleased and excited to announce that we will be opening for Three Dog Night at this Summers Britt Festival on July 10th, in Jacksonville Oregon.
We have loved covering one of the songs they made famous, Mama Told Me (Not To Come), you probably know them from hearing "Joy to the World," "Shambala," "One" and "Black and White."
More info from the Britt web site – “In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more Top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than legendary music icons Three Dog Night. Their hits wind through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, or in TV commercials and in major motion pictures”
We thank Mike Sturgill, Director of Programming and Production, of the Britt Festival for booking us.
Get your tickets soon, the reserved seating is already gone, but tickets for the lawn area are still available! See link below- https://tickets.brittfest.org/Online/seatSelect.asp?WSadmissions::admission::performance_id=8A984848-8335-4DCB-8587-4E40DFFCE1EA
Lots of love,

Is this a musicians average morning?
So, there I was, and you know it was way too early to be up. Lately my brain just turns on as soon as I'm awakened. I start thinking about all that I have to do, and that's it. I 'm up, even if I got to bed at 3am... Yuck, well I digress.
So, I was groggily checking my email and a flash in my peripheral vision brought my attention to the front window where I saw the tail of a rabbit hop just out of my view. The next thing I knew I was outside in the drizzly morning, barefoot in my PJs and my husband's big green jacket, herding a bunny back down the street to its house.
The brown and white rabbit belongs to a neighbor with a pre-school. It's proved to be an escape artist, that was the first of three bunny-herding episodes I had that morning. It made it difficult to gather and prepare myself for my weekly music marketing meeting. The bunny owning neighbors were gone and I just didn't want a dog to get a hold of it. By the way Bunnies don't herd well. Anticipating its moves, directing its direction... straight lines and rabbits don't go together in my limited experience.
There is probably a correlation between herding rabbits and trying to make a go of it in the music business. But, that's another story for another morning.
