Hello from Joe, Hey, we made it ”big” into the Sunday Times last week. Hope you caught the article. If not check it out on LittleHouseLive.com press page. Well it’s half way through February and we have only four weeks to go ‘till the March 12th show at the Warner. We are busy re-tooling the act - it’s a lot of work - hence we are not having any barn shows this month. We are adding new songs, two live video cameras and “The Cupcakes”, two 13 year old girls who will join Jessica on vocals to create an Andrew Sisters-like overlay to two of our up tempo Texas swing numbers. Overall we are trying to operate 2011 as a combination of “free” barn shows and outside ticketed shows at various theaters. Please support us in both endeavors, as the band is at the cusp. Barn shows will be announced in the old manner via email and via listings on our web site. Outside shows in the near future are: March 12th – Warner Theater in Torrington –Lupus charity April 23rd – Bridge Street Café in Collinsville – Cabaret setting April 30th – The Kate in Old Saybrook –A Kate charity event May 27th –Warner Theater in Torrington (second Lupus charity event show added) BTW, my friend Jim Vicevich, the “voice” of WTIC AM, is a special guest at each of the Torrington shows. Also my new BFF Mark Mitchell from The Mitchell Auto Group is hosting a “food” hospitality table at the Warner shows . Of interest, I sent the “Old School” CD to a pro screening company, for their opinion. Out of the 1,000 CDs they have reviewed ours is in the top 50. Very encouraging! Thanks as always for your continued support. “You can make it if you try” – Sly Stone But You gotta really try. Joe and LittleHouse

Had a great night with Ron & Heather Poulin at the LITTLEHOUSE show at the Barn. The band is so talented & tight-Joe Patrina has written 100+songs.Everyone in the group plays great & has a winning personality-the harmonies are very good. Bobby Kuhl is one of the best sound engineers around-really always makes the band sound good. Barry Grant Joe Patrina is definitely the real deal all the songs and arrangements were very good. It was great to see friend Gary Gott playing with this group of very talented players. Everyone there made us feel very welcomed, thanks for a great night out Barry. Ron Poulin Super time last night - thanks so much for the great music and hospitality! Tami Witkoske Zawistowski
