Florida has been blazing in the 90’s since April, so our thoughts turn north, where we hope it will be cooler, as it was last summer. We’ve been busy preparing for our August Summer Tour- check for tourdates on our SHOWS page & hope to see you all on the road. Be sure to say hello & visit the merch table- one new item this year!
Enjoying some good Florida gigs before we leave, including a special concert with the amazing Bob Seeley at the Side Door July 10. We’ll also be sharing the stage with Bob at Cincy Blues Fest (Ohio) Aug. 8 & Bloomington Boogies (Indiana) Aug. 9.
Speaking of Boogie Woogie, our 6th Annual Boogie Woogie/Blues Piano Stomp at The Palladium in St. Pete on March 21, 2015 was another sold-out success. This year featured Mr. B (Ann Arbor, MI), Bob Seeley (Detroit, MI), Victor Wainwright (Memphis. TN) & ourselves.
