Harper and Midwest Kind May 2018 Blog

 Hey Everyone,

Happy May!  Just back from a four week tour to Missouri, Illinois, Florida, Texas and Arkansas!   We have a rare home show this Saturday May 12th at The Rumpus Room, Chelsea Michigan.  Michigandas here is the ticket link:  This is a very special music room and we would really like to make it very successful! 7pm Doors, 8pm Show!  Please spread the word!

Our Spring tour was a lot of fun.   We visited our friends at BBs in St Louis.  Our good friend and amazing didgeridoo performer Brennan England, showed up and jammed. Which was very cool!  We had some fun shows at Pop's Place in Decatur, Ilinois followed by the Alamo in Springfield.  My beautiful wife Bobbi and I celebrated our wedding anniversary on the road.  We had a meal with the band at Golden Corral then visited Walmart straight after - Soooooo Romantic LOL!!!! We circled back to St Louis and spent some time at the amazing National Blues Museum.  If ever in St Louis, you must check this place out.   We plan to do a show there in November.

Then we headed South to Florida and visited many of our favorite venues.  Some newbies were South Street City Oven and Grill in Naples and the Shark Bar in Fort Myers Beach.  Nice music clubs and definitely worth checking out.   Then on to Texas for the Toyota Music Factory / Big Beat Dallas.  What a huge venue - amazing sound and hospitality.  The legendary Antones in Austin Texas, was just as amazing as I thought it would be.   Then the final show took place at another new venue for us - Chelseas in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  Eureka Springs is such a quirky and cool place.  We completely fitted in there and hope to return!  We are off to Germany next week for the Grolsch Blues Festival Yay!

We hope to see you out on the road this spring and summer!!

Thanks and Peace,
