IMG_3154

I can’t tell you how grateful I am that the classiest people book us. What a great night. Dan wanted to surprise his S.O. with a birthday party, and hired us to be part of it. Beautiful place, totally fun people, but I digress. Condo in Clayton, and when Mike walked in, as Dan tells […]

It’s Always “Just In Time” …

… for live music! We got a typical query the other day for a wedding — but it could have just as easily been for a 50th Anniversary or a 40th Birthday party in a private home. What as “typical” [for us!] was that it was “short notice.”  Someone asked us less than six weeks […]

March Madness

Kevin warming up on a bar stool for tonight's rehearsal, circa 1968. (Takes me a while to warm up)

For a band like ours, the winter is a time to reflect, rejuvenate, and re-jive! We have the occasional gig, but are looking forward to spring weddings and summer at the wineries.
