Wee bit of braggin'


The band would like to recognize and thank three women who have been both supportive and forgiving as we spent hours in practice, in recording sessions, and on the road fulfilling our dreams.  Steph, Diane & Janice have been the wind beneath our wings.  Thank you!

2024  We stopped booking new gigs for the last half of the year and were saddened to learn that Sir Charles Kadyk was moving along with another chapter of his life - retirement.  So we're tapering off with 39  gigs this year.

2022 & 2023 flew right on by with just too much fun & too many new friends to try to mention highlights.

2021 - COVID still lurking
