"get your stuff together, come on join the band and have faith in what you know, hold it in your hand"
Welcome to our band
(site updated 5/7/16)
Happy Spring Folks!
We sure have had a good 2015 as a band now it's time to celebrate Spring with sharing our music. We have lots of gigs coming up. Thank you all for your support; invites, inquirers, listening ears and appreciative hearts. We are much better for it. Keeps us going!
We've had a great year of making music in many varied settings! Everything from city plazas to living rooms, churches to hospital rooms. Ya know? It's ALL good! We're just so happy to be here and contribute. Making and sharing our craft is a sacred trust. Funny how something so "sacred" can be so FUN!! (hmm... have to think more on that one....sacred fun?)
So in an effort to continue this sacred trust, we began recording last Fall. A very common question arises at most all of our engagements; "do you have a CD?"
Well, we're working on that! We've been saving up band resources and currently have 8 songs down(!) We'd like to have Betwixt 'n' Between in your ears all the time (when you want us) =]
A bit of real inside band news: Our beloved mandolin player Dustin, is planning on moving back to Oregon come early August. He's going back to school to pursue his dream of being in music therapy. Good for Dustin. Sad for the band. He has added SO MUCH to the band and he will be SORELY missed. All the best Dustin.
So, with this consideration, we are playing as much as our busy schedules allow for to enjoy our remaining time together.
Previously concerning recent fires and floods:
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 wildfires, floods and all of the aftermath. Extreme losses, but in response, beautiful stories of communities coming together, working hand in hand to work at becoming whole again. The bumper stickers and T-shirts are beginning to fade but we are still commited to rebuilding, rethinking, and striving to make lives better again matching this amazing place that we call home. Keep those affected in your thoughts and prayers, and still 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's life and YOUR life where you live. Reach out and do good. Volunteer.
and of course....
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.
