Happy Rainy May Day!

Spring sure came around fast again…Part of April felt like late July and then it got really cold again…Wonder what May will do? We’ve been hoping for rain during the week but warm sunny weekends! Today it’s raining and we’re packing up to go camping with a bunch of musician friends all weekend..,.
We’re excited to be doing a little test run for future music festivals out at the Mark West Creekside. I mentioned this possibility on our website in March and haven’t promoted it much because the proprietor Jack Martin didn’t really want us to invite the public or everyone we know. So I hope anyone who didn’t get a personal invitation will understand! Hopefully our little event this weekend will lead to future public music festivals in this beautiful location. Hopefully the weather will clear up. Otherwise we’ll all be huddling inside our friend Alan’s festival tents with propane heaters. But he’s there setting them up for us!

On to the next weekend:

We’re playing at the Calistoga Farmer’s Market again!
Saturday May 9th from 9am to noon
With the 3 D’s (Dan Brunetti, David Chapman and Duncan Draper.)

We have 2 big wedding gigs coming up later in May, one with the band and one as a duo. We’re hoping more gigs like that come our way soon. We love playing weddings! Please keep us in mind if you or anyone you know needs music for any kind of event. Thanks!

Happy Spring and good health to all,
Lindalou and Michael

P.S. One more really fun gig has come up in May:
