We’re back with another update! If you’ve been following the band you will know that its been an incredibly busy summer. One of the highlights was our show with THE COWBOY JUNKIES(http://latentrecordings.com/cowboyjunkies/) at the SOUTH END GROOVE YARD(http://www.southendgrooveyard.com/) on Salt Spring Island which happened August 1st. It was a wonderful experience and we had a great time with ‘The Junkies’ over the course of that weekend. They are truly one of the country’s great bands performing both new renditions of their trade mark old psychedelic country/rock music. Special thanks to David and family for having us! Be sure to check out the South End Groove Yard events!
