Welcome to the website y’all! Take a look around and check it out. Right now we’re looking forward to a GREAT Summer and we sure hope you will come out to see us and lend us your ears!
We JUST got back from taking part in the 2013 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee with the Grafton Blues Association and just like 2011, it was a whirlwind. After 3 nights of blistering Beale Street blues and bedlam, we once again found ourselves in the IBC Finals among 9 bands chosen from the roughly 150 bands that participated. A very special thank you to family friend and blues harpist extraordinaire, Mr. Jim Liban, who joined forces with us on this trip south. We had a great time down on Beale Street and we want to again thank EVERYONE for all of the overwhelming support during this event and through all the years leading up to it. We could not have made it there without you and we are grateful to be able to share our time and our music with all of you. THANK YOU!!
Do you ever stop and take a look at the world we’re living in? What once was a dream, is now in many cases a reality. It seems crazy but the world is merely a reflection of what is going on inside of ourselves. It can be kinda ugly sometimes. However, there is still much beauty to be found in the world. It’s all around us. If we can learn to see the beauty and take the time to ease the pain, if we can learn to make that choice between fear and love, that reflection can change. We all want to see change in the world and we’re always at a critical point. A lot of people want to see that change but they don’t want to change themselves. Change, real change, comes from within and it isn’t always easy. The only way to change things that are bigger than us is for us to change those things within ourselves. Together, we can do this. Everybody is different and we need to learn to not be drawn apart by the petty differences that we all have. Therein lies the beauty. We have long since returned to the point where our food and water security is at risk. What’s more important than food and water? This is why we must not be separated by the fringe issues and the lies that we hear when we turn on the TV. We have much bigger fish to fry. Democrat, Republican, Christians, Muslims, rich, poor, black, white, men, women, all human beings, we ALL need to stand together if we truly want to see the world become a better place. It can be. “There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.” We can get through this together without falling apart. Can music be the glue? It’s not a bad idea when we’re talking about living for a change. Nothing brings people together like the power of music, the truth and a few good ideas. Come. Live. Laugh. Love. Enjoy! We play our music to fill your hearts and ease your troubled minds… so let’s jam!
There is no end to how much we appreciate your continued support, so again, thank you. Until next time, take it easy baby!;) We hope to see you all real soon…
