We have an important update: Caryn just literally broke a leg on Sunday. While we’re waiting for her next steps (ha ha!) and potential surgery, we’ve canceled our gigs at North Ogden and Jazz at the Station this week. We’re hoping to come back to both of these in the near future, though.
One bit of good news, though: The Proper Way is filling our 7:30 slot tonight (Monday, 8/8) at Barker Park, North Ogden’s amphitheater. Should be a great show, and we’ll bring our lawn chairs and enjoy the music from the other side of the stage.
Updates to follow! We’re hoping that Caryn will be back on stage soon, safely perched on her stool. We’re still looking forward to Farmers Market in Ogden (8/27) and subsequent gigs.
And then there’s other stuff in September when we hope it gets cooler, including Van Sessions, Monarch Market, and Lighthouse Lounge! Stay tuned here and tune in to the gigs calendar to see what’s coming up.
Over the past months, we’ve had a couple private performances for celebrations of all sorts, as well as a full patio at UTOG where we tested out more live recording, like this:
And Caryn and Adam went underground last week for this Ogdenite Speakeasy celebration of art, music, and poetry:
Hope to see you out on the town this month! Let us know if you’ve got other places you want to see us — preferably shady backyards and patios!
But it’s also the unusual: It’s been a long while since we’ve played a Saturday night show, and this is our ramp-up for our summer.
And, it’s my (Adam) birthday this week, and when the band asked what I wanted to do to celebrate 50 years, I said I just wanted to play piano and maybe have a beer in downtown Ogden–in other words, living the dream. Caryn got this on our schedule and the band made my dream come true. They also let me make up the whole setlist!*
We’d love to see you, this weekend or later this summer, late at night or the middle of the day. There’s more to come — including Tim’s birthday next month.
*That’s a funny band joke. I do all the setlists. It maintains my place in the band.
We can’t tell you just how excited we are about summer. Adam’s practicing so hard he hurt himself on the keys. But it’s worth it: We’re getting ready for fun gigs that are lining up for the next few months.
We wanted to share some of this and our excitement, reaching all the way out into September when we play at Ogden Nature Center’s Wildwoods Bash on Sept. 9, as well as Van Sessions the week before, Sept. 2.
And in the middle of it all, we get to play two amphitheaters for free public shows, July 24 for Davis Arts at the Layton Amphitheater and August 8 for North Ogden’s Music Mondays at their amphitheater. Our contracts for those shows includes terms like “headlining” and “green room” and even a grand piano on the Davis stage. We also get to play Ogden’s Farmers Market on August 27–no green room or grand piano, but festive all the same.
And there’s other stuff, private events and stuff yet to be confirmed and things we’re scheming. Keep up with our gig calendarand we’ll post announcements here as well. For now, we hope you can join us at Lighthouse in a few weeks as a preview to summer and lots more music to come. After a rough winter, we’re really looking forward to it!
