Release Parties and MORE

Our big release event two weeks ago at Toad in Cambridge was a big success! We had a great turnout, sold lots of CDs and tee shirts, and everyone seemed to have a really good time! I am very grateful to my girlfriend Barbra and my sister Meredith, as well as my parents and my friend Jodi for helping out at the merch table. I'm also really grateful to all of the great musicians who came down to lend their talent. Ben, Zeke and Eric were holding down the rhythm section as usual, plus Pat Loomis came down to blow some sax and singers Alex Jones and Lydia Harrell lent their vocal talents to the night. All in all it was a real blast, and of course I am grateful to Toad for allowing us to have it there.

A week later we were off to New York City to do a release event at Club Groove NYC. It was good to be back there, as I hadn't played there in over a year. We had a good turn out there as well, made some new friends and had a really good time.

I have been struggling to keep the CDs in stock as they have been moving very quickly! I am very pleased by all of the positive feedback I have been getting all around from folks about the new music. It is very encouraging indeed! If you haven't have a chance to check out the album yet, you can listen to clips and purchase CDs and downloads on CD Baby:

You can catch us playing at In A Pig's Eye in Salem, MA on October 15th, and Halloween weekend we will be having big fun at both Sonny Walker's and Toad. It's going to be an AWESOME OCTOBER!! Look forward to seeing you all out on the dance floor.
