fotos from state theater

Last week, a photog (by the name of Doug Fox) was kind enough to share photos he snapped of our show at the State Theater. A sign of a music photographer’s skill is finagling a decent shot of the drummer. John got some love from this guy. But it probably helped that the drums were… Read more »

Folksay: What good wind blew you in?

I need a second to just chill at home with a glass of pomegranate white tea, some champagne mangos (my fruit of choice of late) and my computer.

POSTSHOW: Ballston Craft Market, RocknRomp

A post-show recap is due… it was fun! but it was tiring. Our day started at 7am and ended at 6:30pm. Admittedly we were kind of miserable when we first got there. It was dreary, cold and wet. Debbie RocknRomp had just informed us that the music part of the event was up in the… Read more »
