Honestly, I must be dreaming. So many good things are happening right now and we’re very excited to share them with you:
More Alaskan shenanigans! That’s right folks. We’re headed back to that gorgeous desolate frontier for our 7th tour in the great state of Alaska. What can we say? It’s just that good. So good in fact that we’re bringing our friends, The Door Floor Band, along for the ride. Who is the Dirt Floor Band? I’m so glad you asked. Taken from their website: “Five Mendocino County, California dudes playing original barefoot-punk-grass; our own special blend of mutt music. Bluegrass. Electric funk jamming. Self-deprecating folk-country”. They are super fun and great friends of ours. You’re gonna dig it. Our Tour dates are listed below; for more info on the DFB, check out their Facebook page.
In other news, we were recently contacted by the good folks at Stern Grove, one of the largest outdoor free concert series in San Francisco, and will be a part of their ‘Grove on the Road’ series next month. We’re very excited to be working with these promoters and have put together a special 6 piece band for the event, which will be in Noe Valley on June 1st.
Oh, and did we mention that the episode of 11th and Grant that we recorded last year for Montana PBS was nominated for 3 Regional Emmy Awards? Congrats to the amazing crew; your talent and hard work deserve this recognition. Wish we could be there to pop some corks with you.
We’re working feverishly on some new music and hope to have something for you soon. In the meantime, come check us out at one of our many shows around the Bay Area this Spring/Summer. We’re working with some incredibly talented musicians and are bringing new instrumentation to our music! Hope to see you out there on that long dusty road. Cheers friends!
