Howdy y’all!!

Been awhile, hope you’ve been alright – we’ve been busy as all get out, got the EP done, mixed and mastered in (what seemed for us) record time (with a little help from our friends), and we still have a full length to drop soon, so…just like anyone, no time to reflect. Gotta get back out and chop some wood. Get behind the mule in the morning and plow.


Check it out and getchya some (only a couple days left!!) Everyone who contributed to the last campaign gets a copy of this one, and we’re super excited and proud and tired and scared and all kinds of emotions getting jumbled up in there, lol. But the CDs did arrive on May 27th, and we’ll have enough to last the summer...

Speaking of summer, we have got a busy busy summer lined up, starting with Dog Days on June 05…but hell, instead of typing about it all, I’ll list the dates here :

There it is – do me a super solid and come see us!! It’s gonna be a killer summer, armed with a new disc while we’re finishing another, and we’d sure like for you come share in the fun and celebrate with us!!

Happy fun summer time! j

Shows and Music etc et al

Well, well...summer is almost ready to kick into high gear, and tomorrow we will have Calm Before The Storm available on CD for some summer jams in the CD player or the itunes (it will be on itunes as well, and amazon.com too!) You can also pick up a copy at a show - there will be plenty of chances to come party with us, such as the show at My Place in Knob Noster on Friday June 08. The next day, (Sat June 09) we'll be playing the main stage at the Elderberry Festival in Hartsburg at noon, then on to a private party in Independence later that night (see if you can find it!!) Then, on June 21 we will play the Thursday Night Live stage downtown in Jefferson City from 6-7PM, then on across the street where we will have a 'party on the patio' upstairs and outdoors at Bones in the Alley from 9PM - whenever!! Whew!! Then, come see us at Mid-America Harley Davidson in Columbia Mo on June 23; hot wings, hot babes, hot bikes, and hot tunes - it's gonna be a BLAST!! On June 28 we'll be at The Gramophone in St Louis with Lions of Hazelwood and The Steepwater Band, who are not only two very awesome bands but we consider them to be close personal friends, DW-family even, so we are really looking foward to that one. On July 30th, we'll be back in Independence for the Beer, BBQ, Brats, and Bad-ass Jams - DW, Sri Yantra, Band 13, The Rotgut Ramblers, and a bunch of other cats are going to be throwing down ALL DAY LONG - a block party that has to be experienced to comprehend. On the 4th, we are going to be at the Landshark Lager Beer Garden in Jefferson City from 3:30 to 5PM, and then July 5th at The Bridge in CoMo with The Mojo Roots, which is also a very special show, as the Roots rock the house and are friends of ours as well. July 6th marks our return to Twin Bridges on Rte CC, and that will probably be the last "An Evening w/DW" for awhile. After that...as I stated in the last blog, who really knows?? We'll try to get a record done...but in the meantime, we'll be around, so we hope to see you come hang out at a party with us!!

Peace to you all, jeremy
