May was busy. The biggest news - The CDs are here! So I spent most of the month
shipping and mailing, mailing and shipping. What fun!!
We played at Marty's in Portchester on May 5th which was cool because we met
new people and made new friends. Thanks to X-it for hooking us up! (They'll be
appearing with us in July again at Desmond's. Stay tuned.) Then, we did a street
fair in Ridgewood, NY, our first time without keyboards. We rocked the block!
May 18th we played at Downtime. It was pouring rain that night. Thanks to all the
brave souls who came out. Diane's sister Mandi sang
with us that night. She did an amazing job! We also had Joel Hirsch perform with
us on percussion. This guy can really play. We're hoping to have him grace us
with his presence more often.
On the 19th, we played at
O'Donnell's once again in Harrison. What can I say? We love it there.
I keep telling you to come to O'Donnell's and this "Dear Surfer" is no exception.
Come to O'Donnell's! Then, we played the Amsterdam Avenue Blues Festival
on the 21st. For this show, we had a horn section, Joel again on percussion, and
Mandi joined us again. Our very own Jennifer covered the keyboards and she was
quite amazing, especially considering that she learned the entire set in one day.
Pictures from that gig are coming soon.
On the 25th, we played
the Orange Bear as part of the Sounds From Venus showcase. This event was
sponosred by TheIndependentArtist.com, a site worth checking out.
Just to let you know what we're up to next: We'll be play the Harrison Street fair
on June 4th outside of O'Donnell's. We'll have 2 special guests... Dave Lambert
from Flatlanders on accoustic guitar and Lloyd Nilsen, bn9's original bass player,
on keyboards! So come on out and please
pray for nice weather. Then, we're back at O'Donnell's on the 16th.
