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
