Bye Bye Smith!

Ruby Dee vid still

We’re so sad to say goodbye to our good buddy Mike Smith, who has played drums with us for the past few years. He’s a good guy and a steady drummer, and we’re going to miss him. Mike has decided to head back to school- we had 2 more shows lined up with him, but had to change our calendars due to both Jorge and I getting work on this TV pilot in Dallas. So we don’t even get one last playdate with our pal :-/

We wish Mike all he best out there in this world, and know that we’ll play together again sometime down the road.

And then we’re happy to introduce Michael Bahan to you as our new drummer- Michael has a long list of references- great folks he’s played with: Chadd Thomas and The Crazy Kings, Alvin Crow, The Boss Jaguars, The Third Coast Trio, and he’s also a kick-ass drum teacher with his own studio Cascade Studios in Austin, Texas 🙂

So for now, I’m working on new songs, then will teach them to Jorge, then we’ll share them with the band and work on them throughout May and June, and bring them your way! I’m looking forward to seeing your smiling faces, as always 🙂
