“Best in Jazz 2013”

Hi Friends–

We have just been voted Best Jazz Band by Metroland for the 2nd year in a row! Please check out the write up here: http://metroland.net/2013/07/24/best-of-music-2013/

We are also playing a happening music festival this Saturday in Peru, NY. It’s called Backwoods Pondfest, and there is a great lineup! For tickets and more details, visit their site: http://backwoodspondfest.com/

We hope to see you out there!

Recording a new album…

We are going in to White Lake Studios in 3 weeks to record our next album — Alan Evans (Soulive) is producing it too! We’re very excited to see what happens with our music through this process.

We are asking for your help in funding this one due to the overall investment it is going to take. You can go to this link to see a BRAND NEW music video as well as an interview with the band talking about the new project.

We are on a funding deadline with Kickstarter. How it works is you donate whatever amount you like (there are a bunch of rewards), and it is added towards the goal. If the goal is met by the deadline (July 19), the band receives the funding. If the goal is not met, everyone is reimbursed and the band does not receive funding.

So please tell everyone you know and let us know what you think!

Thank you all so much for your continued support.
