LOVEWHIP (w/the Barefoot Truth Dancers) at Harry's Harvest Ball! Photo by Roger Leisner.
We hope you had a great summer! Ours was fantastic, and our first cross-country tour (with the Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers) was a success! We played gigs all over the country – driving over 13,000 miles – in 7 weeks! Here's a photo album with snapshots I took on our journey. We want to thank all of the clubs and events that booked us and all of the great fans and friends who came out! We really enjoyed seeing the country, and we're already planning some more North American tours, so stay tuned!
We also had a great festival season, and want to thank Wormtown Music Festival (Greenfield MA) and Harry's Harvest Ball (Starks ME) for having us this year! See more pics at our Facebook photo stream!
We have lots of shows coming up in New England – including this week's triumphant return to Northampton MA, our big Portland Maine Halloween Party, and opening for The English Beat in November at Brighton Music Hall!!! The full upcoming schedule is below! Meanwhile we're working some new music, and also a way to share live recordings, demos, and some of our early recordings with you. Stay tuned!
Thanks as always for your support!
