Cur-ville Dog Days Music Fest!

Dear friends,
We’re on our way to play for a 70th anniversary party for a sweet couple in Calistoga today. Virginia and Jess Dooley are in their 90′s and still going steady! Virginia still dances when she hears us playing at the farmer’s market. Hopefully there will be plenty of shade today when it’ll be so hot, or maybe they’ll move the party inside. We’re playing there for 3hrs before going to play at another party for some neighbors.

Next Saturday, August 18th, we’re looking forward to playing a small backyard festival in Kenwood which you’re all invited to!

Note: After I posted this news and sent it out to our mailing list, due to a cancellation, we were asked to play the Calistoga Farmer’s Market this coming Saturday August 18th from 9am to noon. So we’ll be there playing with Dan Brunetti and David Chapman before going to play at the Cur-ville fest later that day.

The Cur-ville Dog Days Music Festival is in it’s 7th year. This year we’ll once again be closing the show and inviting a few pals including Ted Dutcher and Phil Lawrence, to join us.  There will be great music all day starting at 1:30 pm. We’ll play from 7:30 to 8:15 and then the jamming around the campfire begins. If it’s as hot as this weekend perhaps they’ll forgo the campfire and we’ll just jam around the wading pool! This is a kid friendly potluck and a really fun event. Dale and Laura have been putting this on every year and providing a wonderful venue, great entertainment on a shady stage, along with a keg of good beer, a great space to camp out and a delicious pancake breakfast on Sunday morning when the jamming usually starts up again.

Please see the website or contact us for more details. Stay cool and we hope to see you there!

Love, Lindalou and Michael
