Wow – what a whirlwind.
Invited to play at Magic Tree bookstore, Ed (accordion), Steve (bass and vocals) and Victoria (vocals and guitar) shared a set of tunes unplugged. It is so much fun to explore these tunes in different formations! We love it!

Later that night, Steve, Victoria, and Ray shared a set of Victoria’s original tunes at the UT Spring Music Fest where a dozen or so additional musical acts raised scholarship money for student musicians. It was a great night of sharing and variety!
Here’s a few photos to share the events. If you were there, thanks for coming!! You know who you are!

We are honored to be providing the music for the service at 11:00 this Sunday at Unity Temple’s temporary home on Greenfield at Ridgeland Ave.
Here’s a tune we are sharing. Diana Krall’s “Narrow Daylight” – one of our drummer Ray Holdsworth’s favorite songs. Come hear our version as well as two other songs.

The wonderful Tony Walta will be at the piano for the rest of the service music. What a treat!
Member Tony Mitchell will be speaking on “Growing Stronger Together or Apart?” He is considering the increasing divisiveness permeating society, the “sides” it’s creating, and whether we as Unitarian Universalists, individually and collectively, can and should join the fight.
Hope to see you Sunday.
Well, because we have stuff to tell you about of course. We are going to share the mic on this one, but I’m getting it started, so here goes…
Cool summer update: A few of us road-tripped to Milwaukee for Summerfest and geeked out of cool bands for a couple of days. My new heroes are Alabama Shakes. Such a wonderful show we saw at the main stage. Pay attention to the dudes too – not just Brittany Howard. Great band. Y’all should catch them when they are in town. Seriously.
Although summer is a great time to relax and go see bands, we have been doing a lot of that ourselves, as well as exploring loads of new tunes written by brilliant songwriters we love. Some old ones, some new ones. All with a lot of hutzpah.
Watch for future posts on what is up with us. A private party in October and a few pub shows will be focal points for the fall, along with the fall beers of course.
