Summer is upon us and we have a great touring schedule "chokkas" full of festivals and concert series coming up. April saw us touring Florida, Mississippi and Niagara Falls, Canada. We got to hang with our good friends Mackie and Ann Marie in Punta Gorda Florida and Dawn, Scott and Katie and Everett in beautiful Jupiter, Florida. Got to see some baby owls and their folks plus loads of cool shows. Then it was on to North Carolina and West Virginia, Iowa and Illinois. We even managed to do a great show at Kitchener, Canada at the Boat Shed which was a lot of fun. As I looked out from the stage it seemed like the whole bar was dancing. Such a great show!!!. Unfortunately on the way back to Detroit, we were all strip searched and delayed for 2 hours at the US border. Not a nice experience at all!!!
In June this month, we caught up with former but fabulous band mates - Chris Smith on Bass and Matt Besey on guitar at Michigan's very first Shrinefest. The Matt Besey Band sounded great. It was really nice to catch up with these guys! Some more Michigan gigs followed with Metro Park on Lake St Clair and the Lowell Show Boat Concert which took place on one of the most beautiful evenings so far this summer. The next day was the amazing Alpena Blues Festival. We had a little rain but it held off for the evening shows. Then it was down to Indianapolis for the stunning Rathskeller where good friends Justin Brown and Mark got up and jammed.
Thank you for your support and we hope to see you out on the road this Summer in Michigan, South Carolina, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Ohio, Delaware, South Dakota, Minnesota, New York, New Jersey and Missouri with more to follow in the fall !!!
Thanks and Peace,
