December News!

To quote Memphis Minnie, we “Done Broke Down”!

Happy December!

🎶 “What’s the matter with the van? Done broke down!” 🎶

Yeah, sometimes life emulates art, LOL! Unfortunately, we done broke down on the Mass pike, coming home from our Thanksgiving trip. Jim and I both came home sick, too—but we’re feeling much better now, and ready to boogie around the ole Xmas tree! I’m happy to report that we did end up making it home (thanks to AAA plus!), the van is back on the road (again), and we were luckily able to reschedule last weekend’s shows. Yay!

This month, we’ve got lots going on!

  • a free CHRISTMAS LIVESTREAM on Facebook!
  • and IN-PERSON SHOWS around the Northeast!

Read on below for all the links & details! Wishing you a magical holiday season!!
