“Your first album name should be "Solid." You guys sounded amazing all day. Everybody kept commenting on it....even the neighbors told us that they were hanging up laundry and jammin out to you guys. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to the rest of the band and let em know that if its something you'd be up for next year, we'd love to have you back. I was so excited to hear the cure during our tour. Tour de Cure. Thanks again for being the soundtrack to what was a wonderful day for us. 3 Porch had gone bust and with no strawberries or honeypops it was not looking good, but the large turnout at the plant sale popped our heads right above water and should keep us afloat until something else starts producing in the next two weeks, so we are feeling good and happy. Thank you again for charging the environment with laid back, joyful music. The whole group conveys a sense of relaxed enjoyment. Steve and Mandy 3Porch Farm, Colbert, GA”
