It's all good with the band.
We're pretty excited these days. Lots of good things coming our way. First we booked an exciting event/venue for playing Downtown Greeley (July 18th) and now one of our songs may be be featured at the National Mennonite Youth Conference in Kansas City, MO this Summer. Nice. Glad that our music is getting out there.
And we are too!
Looking forward to playing out more and playing OUT more! Outside that is. =] Festivals are the lifeblood of bluegrass music, well, that and an occasional banjo(!) We're working on both. =] Looking forward to see your smiling faces and tapping toes soon!
Hoping this season of warmth and color brings goodness into your lives, brightness into your outlook, and a song in your heart. We will do our best to do our part. =]
A bit of inside-the-Band news:
Well, we're at it. Finally. After years of our listeners requesting.... we've getting back in the studio. Needed to record for a song writing competition (entry made) motivated the Band to move beyond our "play-it-live-or-don't-play-it mode". Thanks to Ed Havens for working with us in putting down some tracks. (if 2 is a couple, and 3 is a few, what is 4?) We'll be getting back in there soon to lay down more tracks.
Previously in 2014:
We are one excited band let me tell ya! We realized a long held dream of ours; playing the main Friday night concert at the MCC Relief Sale in Rocky Ford(!) THANK YOU ALL! You were an awesome audience! We look forward to following up with all the contacts that we made from the Sale and hope that we can play in your town. Get in touch, let us know!
If you live here, you know. If you don't, you've heard. Here in Colorado we've gone through a whole lot of hurt a couple three years ago with gettingfires, floods and the aftermath. Extreme losses, but in response, beautiful stories of communities coming together, working hand in hand to work at becoming whole again. We are continually rebuilding, rethinking, striving to make lives better again to match this amazing place that we call home. Keep those affected in your thoughts and prayers, and strongly consider volunteering wherever you are. For "head in the clouds but hands in the mud" is a compassionate, rewarding way to live. Make a difference in someone else's and YOUR life where you live. Reach out and do good. Volunteer.
Meanwhile, back in the living room...
Ray, Vic and Dustin (how's he getting better every week?!) are still stompin' up a storm creating new music and retooling old favorites. We continue to energize our collective souls by joining in on this wondrous thing we call music and the creation thereof. We're looking forward to upcoming events, seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones through the sharing of our band's craft.
Please continue to remember Tim. Our thoughts are with him every day. We look forward to the time when he can join us again.
As always, thanks for your interest and support of us and our music.
and oh yeah....please
Be good to each other.
