April has been full of excitement. We’ve played so many great shows this month. And coming up is The Tropical Heatwave in Ybor City on April 30th. Purchase tickets HERE.
We also received word that we’ll be traveling to Moravia, Texas in May to perform several of our songs in the semi-finalists round at the 2016 Songwriter Serenade. HERE. This is great because we can wet those Texas whistles for our “Two in Texas Tour” which takes us to Austin, San Antonio, Conroe, and Dallas in June.
We’re so excited to be a part of this fabulous festival! The Gasparilla Music Festival in unlike any other event you’ve ever attended! So, if you happen to be in the Tampa, FL area…make it happen. March 12th & 13th. Our set is on 3/12 at 1:30pm sharp!
And look! We even got to be on TV to help promote GMF2016! More info & tickets HERE
Here’s a recent video we recorded with our friends over at Pilot Moon Films for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts. We waited….biting our nails for a good month or so, and then…our video was approved and officially put up on the site! We sure had fun recording this one.
Being the been busy little DIY booking agents that we are, we’ve also gone and booked ourselves a nice little pocketful of shows over in the TX area. If you’re in Houston, Austin, or Dallas in June, drop into one of our shows to say, howdy. We even landed a show at the legendary Little Longhorn Saloon in Austin. (It’s Dale Watson’s place! We LOVE that guy.) We just might have to stay an extra day…or two.
Check the full lineup of shows HERE.

Hi folks! It’s September already! Can you believe that? Being Michigan natives, we’re accustomed to seeing the seasons change. But down in here in FL, it’s still hot, humid, and sticky. A Florida native once told us that Florida has two seasons…brown and green. Well, with all this rain we’re getting, it’s definitely the green season. Green’s nice.
It goes without saying, we had an unbelievably amazing and SOLD OUT album release party here in FL in August. Many Thanks to all who came out and joined in on the fun. We couldn’t have asked for a better night and better group of people to spend the evening with. The Hideaway is always such a great venue to perform at and so intimate for listening to live music.
Speaking of music venues, coming up this month we have a few great exciting shows. One of the highlights is the COSMIC AMERICAN FESTIVAL. This Festival is being put on in Winter Haven, FL to benefit The Derry Down (one of Gram Parson’s first live music venues). Check out our calendar for more shows this month. See you ’round the horseshoe!

We’re gearing up for our album release show atThe Hideaway Cafe in Saint Pete on 8/29. We’ll have the full five piece band and we’re so fortunate to have the amazing Will Quinlan & Rebekah Pulley also each doing a set of music for the evening. It’s going to be a VERY cool show, so don’t miss it!
Whoa doggy! Michigan welcomed us with open arms this June & July…from all the way up in the upper peninsula to all the way down to Grand Rapids and Detroit and a fabulous SOLD OUT album release show! We have so many friends and family to thank for the success of this tour for letting us crash at their place, cooking us delicious meals, and supporting us at all the shows. We are EXHAUSTED but in a very, very good way. We’re back on the road down to sunny Florida now, and super excited to continue sharing our new album in August with the Tampa area.
Florida in August is HOT!! We’ll be having an album release show at the Hideaway Cafe in Saint Petersburg and it’s going to be a good one. Get your tickets now, right HERE. Or you can email The Hideaway to reserve your seats. Have a good rest of the summer and try to stay cool!
