Last night the band performed a show at Captain Ahab's in Jenks, OK. Joining the band was former band mate Brad Becker. Brad sang many songs, including A Box Under His Bed, Down, Another Day, Figi Fandango, and many more. All in all, it was a fun-filled reunion of the old quartet.

Last Sunday the band performed outside the BOK Center just before the Fleetwood Mac concert. A splendid time was had by all, despite the chilly air, intermittent rain, and unpleasant wind. On July 4th the band will be performing at Drillers Stadium with Brady Orchestra and Stars Go Dim. Afterwards, there will be a spectacular fireworks display. Don't miss this show!

The band has just wrapped recording on several songs composed by Jim Edwards for the soundtrack to the independent film, The Rock íní Roll Dreams of Duncan Christopher. The band is also finishing up a remake of a 1970's TV theme, the details of which will be in a future update. The song "Good As Gold" has currently been featured in a PBS television program called Roadtrip Nation. The episode containing the song will also be included on an upcoming DVD release of the series.
It is with great sadness that we must acknowledge the passing of a dear friend and fellow singer/songwriter, Rusty Love. Rusty was an extremely gifted performer, who truly had a heart of gold. We first met Rusty about 10 years ago. She used to jump onstage with us every so often a sing a few songs. We had to turn her microphone down because she could belt out those notes like no other. A few years later, she was kind enough to lend her voice to a couple of tracks on our "Creatures of Bread & Wine" album. She also helped us secure some bookings, and she used to put on an annual event (that we also performed at) to raise awareness for breast cancer. Rusty had been battling cancer herself, off and on over the years. She finally succumbed to it on March 23, 2009. We love you Rusty.
