Blues in all its styles
GRAMMY: We’re in the running for a Grammy nomination! There are 54 other bands vying for 5 slots. We’re up against legends like Koko Taylor and Otis Rush, as well as great artists like Kenny Wayne Sheppard and Watermelon Slim (to name just two). Wish us luck!
TOURS: We were planning on doing a European tour in May ’08,. but we now found out that we’re booked for some festivals in Luxembourg and Belgium in July. So, we’re hoping to be able to do the gigs from May in July, adding Germany, the Netherlands and Austria to the itinerary.
Due to numerous factors, the fall ’07 West Coast tour had to be postponed. We’re hoping to be able to schedule it for fall of ’08, if not before. Meanwhile, we’re booking up for the winter and spring of ’08 here on the East Coast.
CD: It’s getting to be that time again. We’re sifting through the new material and figuring out what to record for the new CD. Studio versions of the new tunes from the “Live” CD are a definite, plus we’ve got some great new material that we’ve been playing at live shows (no false modesty here, we really like them!) We’re not setting a release date yet, as THIS time we want to have everything co-ordinated.
