Tonight at The Grey Eagle in Asheville

We've been looking forward to this show for a couple of months now! 

It was a fateful day in March when we met The Defibulators. We were in Knoxville for Rhythm & Blooms and both of us made an appearance on WDVX's Blue Plate Special. They are a talented band, awesome folks (great music, naturally) and we talked about how fun it would be to share a show.

Well, the day came and The Defibulators are heading through Asheville with regional up and coming band, The Whiskey Gentry.

And yours truly will be opening the show! We'll have our friends, Dakota Waddell on upright, and Julian Pinelli on fiddle.

Get ready to GET DOWN, sahn.

 

The Strand -- Tomorrow night!

Many thanks to writer Jessi Stone and The Mountaineer for publishing an article on us and our show at The Strand on 38 Main in Waynesville, NC this Thursday evening at 745pm.

We are looking forward to the show -- it's a beautiful facility, owned by Rodney and Lorraine Conard, who have done a wonderful job renovating this old building.

We'll be performing as a trio with our good friend, Dakota Waddell, on upright bass.  Join us if you're in the area!

Thank you, MerleFest!!

Oh my stars.  How do we even begin to describe our EPIC MerleFest experience?! Holy cow: it was one for the books.

We had the most AMAZING weekend on record.  Everyone was so cool.  We had a blast meeting new friends and bands, cheering for our dear friends in Asheville bands as they made their own waves, & seeing our heroes backstage and perform.  And I'll tell you what, that Midnight Jam rawked!!  WOW.

HUGE thanks to Steve Johnson and the entire MerleFest crew that made our time there the best EVER.  We are so grateful!!
