Hi all! Well, we got back from a quickie trip up to Seattle to play the Kustom Kulture Festival and a private show at Highway 99 Blues Club where we had a BALL at both events- have I mentioned how much I love playing with Rick Watson on bass and Michael Bahan on drums?! And of course Senor Jorge Harada on guitar, always πŸ˜‰ anyway, we had a lovely time in the NW, and came back to Austin enthused about working on new material!

Our first night in the studio, we worked on 3 new songs- finally!!! And they all sound really good- really unique- one blues number, one rhumba, and one swing-stroll- not your average rockabilly fare! Plus, I hope folks listen to the lyrics, because I have something to say in each of these songs…

Now here’s the crazy CRAZY part of our update: I am leaving the country in less than 2 weeks- heading to Jordan to work on a film until the end of the year!! So the gents can work on these songs- plus hopefully a few more that we can work out the deets on before I go- and we might get one rehearsal in before our last show of the year- New Year’s eve at the Driskill, as always πŸ˜‰

We are playing a few shows before I head out- so if you’re around Austin, please come see us this upcoming Saturday September 8 out in Luckenbach for their LuckenRod Classic Car & Rod Show from noon to 6pm, early show! And then Tuesday September 11 we’re playing in support of HAAM- that’s the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians- at Whole Foods on North Lamar 7pm while you shop πŸ˜‰ and then I leave town, so please stop by and drop some lovin’ on us before I go πŸ™‚

Now we’re just looking forward to seeing your bright and shiny smiling faces at a show either right before the end of 2018 or sometime in the new year already… There are a handful of exciting festivals and events we’ll be playing throughout 2019, playing our new songs for you bright and clear- so be sure to check out our calendar to find out where and when we’ll be playing next, and until then, keep on a rockin’!
