Hello from Huntsville, Alabama where we’ll play BANDITO SOUTHSIDE this Fri. Nov. 30! We arrived here last Friday night & were thrilled to finally meet our new twin grandbabies Jackson Andrew & Julie Nikole, born Oct. 21. They are real dolls & even cuter in person than the photos we’d seen! Congrats to Drew & Kristen!!
We sure did enjoy the rest of our August tour & the Parkersburg & Marietta shows were a fine nostalgic treat seeing all our home folks, including family + several that I went to school with but hadn’t seen in many years! Longtime fan Dave Garrett from Cambridge/Athens came for his birthday, then sadly passed away in October. We also lost another longtime fan, Joe Davis from Belpre this year, & our Aunt Doris Seibert from Cleveland in Sept. She was the sweetest person & always supported our music, as did Joe & Dave. We’ll miss them all, especially when we play Ohio.
Doc had cataract surgery Sept. 25 & is seeing much better. Took some time off, then played a nice new venue in St. Pete Beach, BOULEVARD GRILLE for 4 Fridays. More upcoming gigs there & more places…hope you’ll join us! We also shared a concert at the SIDE DOOR in St. Pete called BICOASTAL BOOGIE WOOGIE GALS with San Francisco’s CAROLINE DAHL on Nov. 15, & a Swingtime dance at the GULFPORT CASINO with the ST. PETE BLUES ALLSTARS on Nov. 21, then left for Huntsville the next day (Thanksgiving)- whew!
We’re excited to play PARIS, FRANCE Jan. 18 & 19 at LE COLOMBIER- FESTIVAL BLUES ET BOOGIE- please tell your European friends! And our next BOOGIE WOOGIE/BLUES PIANO STOMP will be Feb. 23 at the PALLADIUM THEATRE in St. Pete- save the date!
It’s hard to believe that the Holidays are here again! If you’re looking for unique gifts, please visit our STORE page. The Tshirts are sold out, & we have only 7 Tank Tops left, so hurry if you’d like one. Our new piano/guitar lapel pins with my art design are now available at shows, & from the website soon. Diamond Teeth Mary CD’s are for sale at the Red Caboose in Huntington, WV, and our CD’s are now for sale at a cool St. Pete shop: Main House Antique Center.
It sure has been a busy, good year & we thank each of you for your love & support!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & New Year! Liz & Doc
