With a little help from friends
In November we lost Kelly (just as a band member. He's still alive and kicking), and then in December, Katie decided to become a free agent. As someone in school, she needs a little more freedom. Bands are like that...they say. We wouldn't have minded being a happy family for the rest of time...but both of these young people have plans and hopes and new opportunities, so we say "Go get 'em!" Man, it was fun while it was the four of us (with Tommy joining us on banjo most days). So, we are looking at the duo, Spencer and Joy, and seeing how to augment that...making sure we keep the quality of the music groovy, and keeping the show a lot of fun. We have enlisted the help of Deirdre McCarthy who has come to our aid before and has played with us for a while now, plus we are joined by Bart Wachtler, who plays with Red Moon Rounder, a local original band with a very cool vibe. These two will be playing with us for all of our upcoming shows in January and February. We are very grateful. See where we're playing next.
