Q: Hi, good to pick and sing w/ you guys yesterday at Les-Fest. Lets do it again soon just for fun. Eric Stone

A: Also great to meet you Eric! Agreed we should pick some more tunes soon. FYI Rachael and I are throwing a party next Saturday with lots of music. If you're around you should drop by. Here's the info: Josh & Rachael's Engagement / Birthday / Going Away / RockyGrass Academy Kickoff Party Saturday July 21, 2012 | 3-10 PM Andrews Farm, 6803 Jay Rd. Boulder CO 80301 Join us for a cold-dish potluck and cookout celebrating the impending marriage of Rachael & Josh, as well as Rachael's upcoming move to Raleigh, NC to pursue veterinary school opportunities! And if that's not enough reason to party, it's Rachael's birthday too! There will be live bluegrass music featuring Out of Nowhere Bluegrass Band, a rowdy band out of Colorado Springs, CO featuring our dear friends, Tony Peduto and Corinne Nelson. The Magpies Trio featuring Sean D. will be opening. Music starts at 4pm so make sure and be on time to not miss our show!! For those of you who are headed to the Rockygrass Academy on Sunday, there will be a jam to follow the show, so bring your instruments! We'll be firing up the grill so bring something to throw on it, as well as a cold-side dish to share. We'll provide the keg! There's moderate parking available at the farm, but please try to carpool if you can (or bike if you're more of the adventurous type and do not have an upright bass to haul around... :) Contact Rachael (540-808-7008) or Josh (720-989-3959) for more details! We look forward to celebrating with you! FB Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/234790799971097/
