We're on TV!

We were excited (and a bit nervous) to perform live on the Tim Ezell show on Fox 2, KTVI Channel 2 St. Louis. We got to do a section of Good Times Comin' Round to help promote "Cheers To The Troops," a USO Benefit on July 30 at the S. Broadway Athletic club at 6 pm, where we are one of about 6 rotating acts.

Band on TV!

Keeping myself up to date, and you, too...

We've been busy; we played a show at The Soundpony in Tulsa, which is mainly a rock venue, and has some great acoustics! The day before there was a 12 hour rock festival, so many of their crowd was too tired out to come back, but we still had a great time! Also some of us visited the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, which is a wealth of information about jazz musicians and composers from the state. We talked to some of the folks in charge and it's likely we'll be able to play a concert in their venue, which is a pretty nice place downtown, in what looks like an old train depot. Perfect place for jazz...

We've recorded a few songs now: Letter From Liberia, To Feel Your Touch, Grave Injustices, Buck Street Blues, and Good Times Comin' Round. If you want the full experience, click up here

and there ya go! all the songs will play one after the other...

also check out some new videos at

We're excited to be playing at The Stone Spiral this Saturday, July 16, plus on July 30 a benefit for the USO in south city. This will feature lots of performers and we'll be the house band, pulling out some 40s tunes and our own originals. Well ok some of our 40s tunes are 30s tunes, but they may have been played in the 40s so we're good. Shhhh!

After that, August 6 at Llwellyn's in the Central West End.

So Letter From Liberia is one of the few songs out there written about e-mail fraud. Certainly you've got the email from someone who wants you to help them bring in millions of dollars... just give them all your personal information and you'll get 10% of the thirty million they're trying to squirrel out of the county. Easy! And a great topic for a tune every now and then.
