The CD is coming together. Recording is finished. Editing nearly done. All that remains then is mastering, graphic design, liner notes, and submitting the duplication order to WTS company.
Shooting for release in early October, fingers crossed. Hollywood Mike Morrison is doing a fantastic job producing the album and you will be amazed. Dan is spearheading the artwork with the help of two local artists. Tracks will include some excellent guest performers. Lead vocals on two tracks by Marilyn Dolly, dancing by Emily Warren, and backing vocals by Maddie Yingling.
The band was asked to be part of a local filming project for Taste of History, winner of 10 Emmy Awards. Unfortunately Chuck was in Ireland during this time, but Mike & I were delighted to be part of this project. The segment will likely air nationally and internationally in 2020.
Hollywood Mike doesn't know I am posting this, but I think it is great. It is an interview with Mike by PJ and the Beard. I found the interview very interesting and think his friends and other musicians will find it interesting as well. Chuck coined his new name "Hollywood" driving to a gig in upstate NY recently.

We picked up a number of new venues this year once again and our growing fan base is part of the reason.
