It was high summer the last time we played in St. Paul…a magical July night of fine music among old friends, new friends, and friendly strangers. It seems half a lifetime ago, back in the days before our fabled westward tour, when Don still sported a megabeard. This Saturday we return to our favorite venue

100% Local

If you’re a fan of ours, you probably know we’re big fans of our hometown of Northfield, Minnesota. Although only two of the five of us live within the city limits, it’s where we got our start, and where we’ve played most of the gigs in our illustrious history. And we’re playing in Northfield again

Post Tour Blues (and Rock!)

Sep 26, 2013

Don’t worry, we don’t have the blues…we’ve just been playing a lot of blues since we returned from our tour.

Beer & Brats

Is there anything better than great beer paired with great music? Not likely. We are very excited to be performing at the Harriet Brewing Tap Room on Friday, August 2, and not just because we happen to be big fans of the beverage that created modern civilization. Music starts at 7pm with Boston troubadour Eric

Saint Paul!

Jul 24, 2013

We’ve got a confession to make: we’ve never played at the Amsterdam Bar & Hall in Minnesota’s beautiful capital city. But all that is about to change TOMORROW, when we hook up with our dear friends Germaine & Rich and conquer the fabled Last City of the East. We already know there will be a

Are you Lonesome tonight?

Jul 15, 2013

We’re pretty sure it’s not possible to feel lonesome on a Friday night at Palmer’s Bar. We’re also pretty excited to be sharing the night with Seattle’s “haunted boogie” practitioners Lonesome Shack as they make a tour stop in Minneapolis to play the venerated West Bank institution. Friday, July 19 in Minneapolis!
