Reflecting on another busy, fun summer!

Another summer full of great fairs and festivals has come and gone! I think we played about 20 outdoor shows this year! We had a blast playing together as a “new” band starting back in early June! Myles, Mark, Jonathan, and I were blessed to have Sean “fall in our laps” when we needed a last minute fill-in guitar player for the Codorus Blast in June. I don’t think you have all heard this story yet, so here it goes… We called the D.C. musicians’ union to find a “ringer” and got the name of Sean Pauley. Jonathan, who didn’t know Sean had moved to town, was like “No way, I grew up with that dude in WV and he’s an awesome player”! Well, Jonathan got Sean on the phone and asked him to do the gig but Sean had to decline because he had a wedding to attend that same day. Jonathan asked him where the wedding was… Sean said “Hanover, PA”…. Codorus Blast is in Hanover, PA!!!!! What are the chances of that?? Long story short, Sean accepted the gig, learned some 27 songs in less than 2 days, raced to Codorus Park after the wedding and totally impressed everyone at the show!! Things do happen for a reason and Sean joined our band after that!!

We’ve had a couple of awesome road trips together, some almost 6 hours away playing at some big fairs, all of them great fun! Needless to say, Jonathan keeps us in stitches on these trips and lots of musical details and ideas get worked out on the road!! Where’s the tour bus when you need one? LOL!

We do have one last festival coming up on October 12th and then we’re back to a full club schedule for the rest of the fall and winter! We have added a few new venues and hope to add even more for next year while continuing to play our long-time favorite venues!
