Hey people! We’re sorry it’s been so long and we hope you are all healthy and hanging tough during these strange and trying times. We truly miss you all!
As with every other band, musician, artist out there, we’ve had all shows and events canceled or postponed indefinitely because of the Coronavirus pandemic. We will do our best to keep you all informed of any shows we are able to reschedule once, things settle down.
We can’t wait to hit the stage again to perform for you all and share the live music experience that we all love so much! In the meantime, please stay safe, stay home . . . and we’ll see you soon!!
