The Skylark Lounge post show update

Last night's show at The Skylark Lounge was a great success. The Band was spot on, thanks Gwen Copeland, Parker Townsend, Dash Morgan and special guest on bass Mr. Jackie Newhouse for such a great performance. We had a blast! I want to say thanks to our fans who made it out to our first (of many I hope) performance(thank you Wanda Sweat). Thanks to the many new friends we made too! Coco, Chuck, too many to mention all of them here but you know who you are. I'd like to thank John & Mary Ellen LaTouf and the two Jesse's for taking such good care of us. They are the bomb! The Skylark Lounge (this is the old Airport Bar N Grill location) is a bit of East Austin history and a cool juke joint to boot. Built like a long rectangle layout with a patio on one end, pool tables on the other and a nice room with tables and booths in the middle to enjoy a musical performance. This is very cool room! You shoulda been there!

post Navasota Blues Fest 2013 update

We had an amazing show in Navasota. The Lispcomb family was there in full force. Sold out on our CDs. Could have sold so many more...who would have thought it would turn out so good. Signed autographs till the end of the night!!! Everybody was telling us we were the best Act there. They are gonna bring us back again next yr. Gwen was sensational. Johnny shinned. Together our "on stage antics" got the dance floor full for the whole show! Dash was awesome. Parker almost stole the show with "Blind Bats & Swamp Rats". Gwen was so excited to have so many fans ask for her autograph. We really had a blast. The food was sooooo good!
