Ready for the road!

It’s almost time to head to head to the great midwest!  We are really looking forward to it.  We had a great time in Colorado earlier this month…well, pretty great.  I mean, other than the storms we endured every other night, including the hail storm that caused our first show (Lakewood) to be canceled after a fantastic sound check at a magnificent venue!  But that didn’t stop us (or our dented rental van).  We made it to the land of love (Loveland) the next night and played on a cement island in a lagoon outside of city hall.  And the next night met fans/friends from many parts of the US (thanks for the support guys!) in beautiful Salida where Clarke, owner of the Salida Cafe, made us feel right at home.  We also played live on air at KRFC in Fort Collins and KHEN in Salida – 2 wonderful community radio stations that play some of our favourite music ever!  
We’ve also enjoyed a little time at home and with family this month.  I took my 7 year old nephew to a water park and went “family camping” last weekend.  I learned 6 new old time tunes in a day!  It was the most time we’ve had at home since the beginning of the year and it was good for our souls.  I’ve been working hard too because August sees us back on the road pretty steadily through until December so there are many plane tickets and hotels to book, promo and advancing to do…not to mention the new release and all that it entails (yay!)  Anyway, I just wanted to say that I hope everyone is having a safe, happy and music filled summer.  Let’s enjoy the remainder!
