Yes indeedy it’s official! We’ll be heading back to Australia in February 2018 to play the Ballarat Beat, as well as a handful of other shows down under. This time, for the first time, only Jorge and myself will travel, and we’ll play with local musos TBA 🙂
Shows to be posted soon, as we’re ironing out the details, and there may even be a quick trip across to New Zealand- we’re talking to folks now. Here’s the general schedule until shows are officially posted:
Thursday February 8 Sydney at Rock Lily 9p-11p
Friday February 9 Adelaide at TBA

That’s it! Quick and sweet, down under and nice and dirty 😉 more to be revealed asap
Hope everyone is keeping their cool and remembering to love on those around them, RDSH
Which means it’s time to remember those who have gone and to share the day- a meal, a drink, some memories- of and with them.
After playing our kick-ass show last Monday night at the Continental Club with pals Hillbilly Casino from Nashville, TN, and rocking the house with our version of David Bowie’s ‘Suffragette City’ in homage to that great performer, we thought it appropriate to remind everyone of this time-honored Mexican tradition. Even though we seem to have co-opted it for whatever purposes across the globe, as a nod to our Mexican neighbors, and in memory of loved ones everywhere, Happy Day of the Dead Y’all 🙂
That being said, I’ll be riding out the rest of the next few months in Memphis, then returning home to play a handful of shows before we ring in the new year, including a fun family-friendly night at Central Market on North Lamar Friday December 22 from 6:30-9pm, and of course our yearly Rock In the New Year celebration at the Driskill Hotel Sunday December 31 from 10:30pm-1am. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
I am constantly reminded of how lucky I am to play with some of the best musicians around the globe. Last night as I stood offstage and watched Jorge Harada and Mike Smith and Rick Watson tear it up for the good folks at the Driskill, I couldn’t help but feel love and pride for these gents and what we do…
I mean, I’ve been in Memphis for the past few months, and yet the gents still get together and rehearse our songs to iron out kinks so we play seamlessly after however much time apart. How lucky can a gal be?
We have one more show this month- tomorrow night at the Continental Club in Austin with our pals Hillbilly Casino- you do NOT want to miss this show!! Then I’m back in Memphis until mid-December- maybe coming back with a few recordings under my belt, stax style, friends!!! More to be revealed…
We have a few shows to close out the year- December 22 at the Central Market for the whole family 6-9pm and back to the Driskill for our New Year’s Eve shenanigans there. Come out and say howdy someplace soon!! Until then, stay sane and safe and we’ll catch you on the flipside, RDSH
