Me-oh-my-oh, don't despair! - February 23, 2014
You know what's awesome?
Well, yeah, three-day-banja-thons in the deepest hills of ol' Virginia (a.k.a. Mirkwood) - those are awesome. But We're talking about the next thing:
Having awesome choirs and orchestras from around the country work out arrangements to your songs and sing/play them with you when you come to visit. It's like "Oh, hey uncle Chester, thanks for coming over. I've worked up a harmony banjo part to your original banjo song "Purty Mouth", and I wanna jam on it with you".
It's awesome like that. Most recently, the good peopl eof Arizona graced us with their mad skills. Also Wisconsin, Utah, and Texas.
We enjoyed being in all those places. After a quick visit to Folk Alliance in Kansas City (not in Kansas), we're looking forward to many more stops in this great country of ours, and we hope to have more choirs and orchestras jam with us while we do.
Like the majestic goose... - January 28, 2014
What do we do in January? We head south, friend. California. Arizona. That's how we roll.
Then to Denver. Oops. Oh well. I hear there's plenty of recreation to be had in Colorado, even in the winter.
If you're cold where you are, come find us on the road! Shimmy-shake your way to warm!
Put down the Santa Hat... - January 15, 2014
We got everything we wanted for Christmas. Epic shows across the state, and Tilby finally admitted to the possible existence of a higher power. Santa Claus, to be precise.
2014 is busy right out of the gate. CA, AZ, TX, CO, all before the snow melts. Ryan is in the studio crafting, honing, refning, and awesomizing. Craig changed his bouzouki strings - do you know how hard those are to find? Roger learned the complete Slash Gutiar Solo Library. Tilby found a missing math assignment from 1998.
Come see us! New songs! New jokes! Same dance moves! We can't wait to catch up with you.
