It’s almost Spring!

Greetings!

It’s been awhile since we’ve been playing in public much, although we did today in the Calistoga Visitor Center. This wasn’t planned, but we were volunteering to help out with the local Jazz Festival and though we’re not jazz musicians, people kept encouraging us to play, and we just happened to have our instruments in the car, so…

We’re happy to have been asked to play a few gigs recently. We have until April to practice up for the first one. We don’t have all the details yet, but we thought we should at least get the dates out there since some of you have been asking when we’re playing again. We’ll fill in the details as the dates get closer.
