A New "Look"!

It occurred to us recently that our web site, photos, and demonstration videos did not reflect our current band. When you have children in a band, it can change dramatically from one year to the next.

When we started the band, no one was particularly skilled at their instruments, harmonies were still written out and drilled, everyone stared at their fingers, no one smiled, least of all Mom, when the younger two, not knowing behavior requirements on stage, would goof off. Ok, some things haven't fully changed. Ha!

Our promotional issues changed over this last week as updates were made on our demonstration videos and everyone went in for some updated photos!

Pictures first, then for those who would like to give a listen to our new demo videos, keep scrolling down and you'll find them. We are trying to get a jump start on booking for 2012, nation wide, so if you know anyone who may be able to offer us assistance on locating playing opportunities, please forward the videos!

On to the pictures! These are some of our favorites, in no particular order:















Here is one specifically for our Gospel Music!


Finally, we do offer some educational programs for children.



Don't forget! We're working on bookings for 2012, so if you have any place you can suggest to us, please let us know, and pass the videos on!

Happy Pickin'!

The End of the Season

Tomorrow marks the end of the season. It is rather strange that it happens to land on 9/11. We play for a picnic, then we are off the rest of the month. It's been a whirlwind of a summer, too. We've had the privilege to play at so many interesting locations, from 4th of July celebrations, fiddle contests, city parks, fine art festivals, and other interesting venues.

Today we had another interesting adventure - the Colorado Peach Festival. In most ways it was an ordinary gig, but we just happened to be right next to one of the more interesting kid entertainment blow-ups we'd ever seen.



Velcro!

One of the many perks to playing with a family band. This summer the kids have gone on carriage rides, little train rides, played human Foosball, had many delicious free meals, and all in the name of entertaining. However, I'm pretty sure this was the best one this summer!

There are a few fall programs lined up, and we've already booked our first Christmas gig of the season, but the summer rush is over. We are all looking forward to some down time to work on our CD project.

We have an official tour announcement available for download as well. There are some minor changes as we try to narrow down our targeted locations. Please feel free to pass it along to anyone in the states listed!

Happy Pickin'!
