Thanks for Joining Us! and Our Latest Video
Our outdoor gig on July 14th was loads of fun. It was fun to have saxophonist, Bobby Tynes on the gig! Also, we were surprised to see our dear friend drummer, Nat Mugavero who was there to play the second set. He sat in for a couple of tunes.
Thanks so much to our friends for joining us at our little outdoor show.
Here’s a link to a video from the show “Have I Told You Lately”.
