Hi Folks,
March has flown by and we’ve been playing a bit but no public gigs this month. We have a couple of things coming up later this Spring.

Our house concert back on February 25th was really fun and a nice way to honor my late Dad’s birthday. We raised almost $2000.00 for the DCWC ambulance project in Nepal. Thanks to all who came and enjoyed the evening and supported this project that my sister and brother in law are so involved in. We may do another house concert to help with this in the next couple of months. They are still only at 58% of their goal, so we’d love to help them raise more funds for this.

Yesterday we found out about a cool thing that our local Oliver’s Market is doing and we just submitted a song for it. They’re calling their project “Real Music.” It’s a way for them to help local Sonoma County musicians get their music heard and it will benefit the Redwood Empire Food Bank. Sounds like a great thing to get involved in and we encourage any other Sonoma county musicians reading this to check it out.  We’re hoping they might like our music enough to invite us to play one of their events, and maybe even choose one of our songs for a compilation CD they plan to make of local musician’s original songs. It would be a great way to donate to the food bank.

We’ll keep you posted and let you know more soon about our upcoming gigs, one on April 27th in Calistoga and one on April 28th down in Rutherford at the Elizabeth Spencer Winery, as well as opening day of the Calistoga Farmer’s Market on Cinco de Mayo and the Calistoga Education Foundation Auction later in the afternoon and evening on May 5th.

Thanks for checking in and we hope you’re all well!

In harmony,

Lindalou and Michael
