So much has happened in my absence from this little journal. We announced the dates of our midwestern/Canadian tour, we bought a van (more on that later), we were interviewed on the radio, we scaled a very large mid-Manhattan building, we explored some Bolivian silver mines, we starred (and did our own stunts) in a major motion picture and we won the lottery for the largest quilt ever made! Some of that is even true! And also…

For the first time ever, we presented Ooh La La, Sha Sha… in public. And boy, was it fun; Portland, ME turned out in droves to celebrate with us and get down on it. The Model Airplane opened the show, and they got soul! Lyle, Bob, Daniel, Pete, Dane and Jocelyn: well done. We look forward to playing with you again.

And then we played a very high energy set, including a rare trio performance of “Cheatin’ Man,” that may become less rare in time. Jodie and Brendan took some great photos and here are some from Jodie, in case you are interested.
