It was been a wild few months!
This past August, Andyhasaband & I embarked on one of the most wonderful tours I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. We saw so many diverse parts of our country in just ten short days!
We enjoyed the beautiful city of Rochester, where we ate vegan "meatballs" with Tart Vandelay, visited the Twin Cities and hung around Bob Dylan's old stomping ground, enjoyed the beautiful lake in Lake Bluff, IL && visited the rolling hills of Thomas, West Virginia, (see above!) where we swam in a river with the most beautiful border collie I have ever met. Hitting the road with one of your life long friends is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Making music with the people I love is truly the greatest gift I could ever ask for.
Upon my return, I was reunited with Wondertwins, AJ & Tom Del Negro, who have been performing in my band these last few months, for a show at The Iron Horse, where we opened for the wonderful Michael Sherry. Here we cheese in the Green Room, after a very successful show filled with hot jazz licks, mystical harmonies and LOADS of sass.
Until then, you can get your fill of sass on my bandcamp, where every purchase these next few months will go toward funding the new project!
We've got a few shows coming up, where we will be playing new tunes, new arrangements of old tunes && so much more:
10/29 Franklin County Pumpkin Festival
11/6 The Wheelhouse
11/11 New City Brewery
11/21 Bishop's Lounge
&& Finally, in other news, The Franklin County Sweethearts would like to welcome the newest Sweetheart, PAPA SWEETHEART/Roscoe Samson/Junior Hotcakes to our cuntry music family. (I.e, Josh Allen, rock and roll photographer/boy wonder). Side note: he built the drum that seats his bum by hand! Woah!
You can see our tasty new lineup at Luthier's Co-Op on November 18. Get ready to fill your beers with tears!
