East Coast Summer Wrap Up

Mulé, A-ronIt was another great trip up the East Coast the last two weeks with stops in many of our favorite venues and some great new places as well. We kicked it off at the Rogue Tavern in Birmingham, AL, a hip new place we’ll definitely be getting back to. From there it was up to DC for a post-Nationals game party at the Bullpen, and on to our favorite new little road house, the Friendly Inn in Ellicott City. Had the pleasure of jamming with Mr. Warner Willams there, a truly legendary talent.

From the Friendly it was an hour of sleep then back in the van heading north to kick off the 17th Annual Chenango Blues Fest in Norwich, New York. We want to thank Eric, Linda and everyone at the Blues Fest for inviting us to be a part of such a great event, and also Mike and Sarah Woods for helping us put on a great show that night at the Blarney Stone. Look forward to seeing you all again soon. After the Fest it was our pleasure to stop in on our friends at the brand new DBA in Brooklyn, then spend a couple well deserved days off down the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Thanks for the hospitality Francis and Toni! We even made it over to Ocean City for an afternoon of great surfing before getting back to it Wednesday night with a killer set at the Whiskey in Annapolis.

After that it was a quick stop in Wilmington, DE at the Exchange, then on to NYC for a dynamite show at Sullivan Hall with Groovesect, featuring the one and only Theryl “Houseman” de Cluet and New Orleans’ own Wild Magnolia Mardi Gras Indians. It was a privilege to share the stage with such legendary talents. Thanks to our good buddy Dino Perucci for once again capturing it all on film!  We wrapped things up with a great final blowout at the Rookery in DC, then piled back in for the long ride home. Another killer trip, and thanks to all the friends, fans and family who made it out to support us along the way!Sam, Garland
