Already August!?!

Hi All,
Summer is passing quickly as it always seems to do. We’ve been working a lot and playing whenever we can. Thanks to all of you new folks who’ve recently signed our mailing list. We’ve had a really nice response the last couple of places we’ve played which always makes us want to play more often!

We have a couple of things coming up we want to let you all know about just in case you happen to be coming to Calistoga in the very near future!

Tomorrow night August 4th at the Calistoga Roastery (1426 Lincoln Ave. Calistoga) from 5:00 to 10:00 there is an event where poets, musicians and storytellers pay a dollar a minute to perform and all funds raised benefit Calistoga’s “Relay for Life.”

Our friends Nick Triglia and Roastery owner Clive Richardson have organized this open mic event, calling it “The Ketchup Festival” (a takeoff on Napa Valley’s annual Mustard Festival.)
We’ll be paying to play a few songs there at 8:30pm.

The Relay For Life is a huge benefit for the American Cancer Society. We’ll be providing music for that on Sept 15th and 16th at Calistoga High School. We hope to have several of our accomplished musician friends volunteering to play throughout the 24 hour event.

We’re also playing at the Calistoga Farmer’s Market again
on Saturday August 11th from 9:00 am to noon.
Dan Brunetti and David Chapman will accompany us.

Hope you’re all well and enjoying plenty of live music this Summer!

Peace,
Lindalou and Michael
