Making a Spring Connection

Hello Everyone

Happy Spring and thank you for your support. We are now heading into a busier playing season, looking forward to it and to seeing you at one of our shows.

Short update…Last fall we invested in Far West, a music conference supported through Folk Alliance. We were fortunate enough to land a major showcase, which helped shed some light on what we do and opened the door for paying gigs (I know, so nice).

We are scheduled for concerts, house concerts, wineries & private events. Please think of us for recommendations or events you might be having. For your edification, I tell people we are a vocal harmony group that performs our own music as well as covers of the Beatles, Neil Young & other current artists.

This past Easter Sunday we performed with the amazing Ellis Hall. He was originally signed with Ray Charles label, and recently showcased with Boston Pops Orchestra. Wow, what an experience to stand next to someone with so many gifts.

Save the Dates We have a concert in Goleta May 6th for the Cambridge Drive Concert series with opener Owen Plant (http://www.thesunshinebrothers.com/fr_home.cfm). Tickets $10.00 in Adavance, $12.00 at the door. For advance tickets 805 964-0436 http://www.cambridgedrivechurch.org/ May 7th.

If you’re going to be in the area or have friends out that way please let them know. May 28th-Malibu Winery. Okay this is such a fun free hang! The atmosphere is beautiful, great wine and music by The Koles.
