We are winding down what was a busy summer of 2023...our 31st year of performing together! It was notable for so many reasons:
* gigging every Friday at Bents Camp in our hometown of Land O Lakes...SO MUCH FUN!!
* performing with a new band, Bell Bottom Brewed (collaboration with our friends from The Juke Dawgs)
* singing for all of our friends at Eagle Waters for our 17th summer at that amazing resort
* splitting our Sundays between The Pines Beer Garden in Mercer and Pirates Hideaway in Eagle River...2 of our favorite places to perform
* seeing so many old friends and making so many new friends at our shows throughout the summer.
Thanks to all of you for supporting live music in your communities!
We still have several shows upcoming this Labor Day and into September and October, so there is still time to come out and enjoy some kick-back music.
As we continue into our thirty-second year of performing together, it is extremely heartwarming to have made so many special friends through our travels and performances. As we reflect over the years, we realize how special you all are and that is what keeps us going! A special thanks to all of you who have supported us over the years. We are very blessed to have such special people in our lives!
