Hi, we had a wonderful time at Red Devil Lounge two weeks back supporting AmericaSCORES.org. Thanks to all that came out and supported! Friends were seen, drinks and laughs were had, music was played and funds were raised--it couldn't have been better! Special thanks to Colin Schmidt of AmericaSCORES. Also thank you Jan Hobbel for taking some amazing photos. Check 'em out when you get a chance!
Howdy, we are coming out of winter hibernation and have some fun shows coming up. We'll be at old favorite, Grant and Green on Thursday, April 11. Next up: new favorite--Tupelo in North Beach on Friday, May 24. Then, we'll hopefully be at Red Devil Lounge in June to benefit a great organization, America Scores, which, among other things, teaches and inspires kids through soccer, creativity and reading. Check it out: www.americascores.org. Also thanks again to Teague for the Tupelo show. As always, there were peaks and valleys but a good times was had by all. I just uploaded some highlights, including "Heaven Only Knows," my song for Lee Hamrick. Thanks to John Marrin for his nice FB post regarding this song from our most recent Du Nord show. Take it easy, Bill
Thanks to Guella, The Real Nasty, and everyone for rocking the house at the Du Nord last Thursday. It was a bang-up good time for all!
Hi, just posted the new artwork for our E.P. in our photos area, designed by the multi-talented Dave Bois. I think it looks great. We'll be giving away the E.P. at our June 14 Du Nord show. Two other great bands on the bill: The Real Nasty and Guella!
We had a fantastic time at the Elbo Room w/the California Honeydrops and Andre Thierry & Zydeco Magic. Thanks so much to everyone who was able to come!
