OUR NEW CD, LIVE FROM ST. PETE, IS FINALLY RELEASED! Our first CD Release Parties were held February 15th, 16th, and 17th at CASPY’S in St. Pete, where the album was recorded November 16th. We’re excited to have finally released our 1st album since 1996 (SIX FINGERS BOOGIE), our 5th album on Upright Records, and our 1st live recording. LIVE FROM ST. PETE contains eighteen songs- roughly half of these have Florida themes. Also included are two Rock Bottom songs and one from Roy Book Binder, along with 14 previously unrecorded originals. LIVE FROM ST. PETE is now available on our STORE page and at all shows. Thanks to everyone who attended the CD Release Parties at Caspy’s and who have bought this CD so far. We’ll be having more CD Release Parties at every town we play throughout the year.
We appreciate the recent feature stories with photos in the following St. Pete press: Paradise News, Beach Beacon, Bayside News, and Beach Life.
We were quite surprised when 19 of Liz’s relatives from Ohio walked into our Caspy’s gig on December 28th! It’s been great having Mama Blues (Doc’s mom) and many of her friends show up at numerous gigs since January; wonderful to see the “snowbirds” again!
We were saddened to learn that our friend MIKE “DIGGER” WALDRON passed away in January. Digger was a harmonica player, music lover and supporter, and he took good care of Diamond Teeth Mary in the final months of her life. We’ll miss you, Digger….
On January 14th, Liz became a great aunt for the first time with the birth of Abrianna Marie. Liz’s only regret is that she won’t be able to see her for awhile.
Hope to see you soon at Caspy’s, where we now play every Sunday and Monday- and be sure to check out our calendar on our DATES page for new venues, such as The Peninsula, Sun Downer’s, Ten Beach Drive, Sloppy Joe’s, etc.
