Update: 1 May 2014
Greetings and Happy Spring! Tis' the season for outdoor music!
We have a couple of fun shows coming up very soon. First, this Friday evening we will be playing downtown for the First Friday Art Walk series outside at the corner of E Bijou St and N Tejon St, across from Acacia Park. We'll be there from 5-8pm, so stop by and we'll play you a song.
Then, on Saturday, May 17th, we will be playing the outdoor patio at Front Range BBQ on at W Colorado and 24th St. We love this venue to see music and are excited to be playing there soon. Plan to bring your friends to share dinner and drinks and get there early for a good seat because the place will fill up quickly.
Check out our latest CD, Take Stars on BandCamp.
We hope to see you soon at one of our shows! Thanks for listening!
