light(house) at the end of the week

It’s a good week for S&S music.

First, we’re so delighted with what Van Sessions captured and released as individual tracks and videos of our live performance with them at The Monarch at the beginning of the month. Take a look and play these on repeat at our music page or directly at this YouTube playlist, and then tune in as the full episode of that live podcast recording goes live on Friday.

And THEN, come see us live, in person, for multiple hours, late into the night, at Lighthouse Lounge in Ogden on Saturday (9/24/22) from 9:00p to Midnight ($5, 21+). Past our bedtime but worth it.

August shows

We had a great time in July, playing the Layton Amphitheater for the Davis Arts Sunday concert series, a couple of private events, and a full patio at UTOG.

Summer has one last gasp of shows including:

And, practically in August, look forward to Van Sessions on Friday, Sept. 2.

And, you really ought to look into tickets for Ogden Nature Center’s Wildwoods Bash on Sept. 9 before they sell out, since it’s a really good cause and a great time AND your favorite band is playing. (No, NOT The Proper Way! It’s us!!)

Check out our gigs calendar for all the latest.

van session

Our live Van Session by the Ogden Banyan Collective is now available on your favorite podcasting platform, including the Van Sessions page itself.

And here we are in all the media goodness on YouTube. Thanks again to Brandon and Todd at The Banyan Collective–contribute and support them here, and come to their live sets at The Monarch each First Friday!

better times

It’s been a minute. We’ve played a few things in the last couple of months, celebrating holidays at the Monarch and wedded bliss up in the mountains (congratulations to Autumn and Mark!) interspersed with rehearsals and trying out new equipment.

Things have been tough, though. We’ve had a couple of canceled gigs due to disease. Perfectly reasonable and expected during these times, but it’s still a bummer for us.

But, we’re looking ahead to better times. We’re looking to re-book things and finding new prospects in the coming months, and hopefully we’ll be tracking some new stuff in the new wires and boxes we’ve got hooked up in Tim’s basement. Stay tuned. For now, here’s a flashback from our live recorded session at Van Sessions — where we’ll return in September 2022!

Special thanks to the Banyan Collective and #vansessions for this and the rest of our playlist from that session!

(Quick notes about this one: I’d never played this particular piano intro before, but Caryn just picks it right up without any warning, as if this is the way we always do it. At the end she suggests that you invite us to all of your parties, which is a genuine request. Just let us know.)

lighthouse love

In case you missed it, here’s some love from Lighthouse Lounge on Saturday night.

Thanks to Lighthouse Lounge for capturing us in their live IG feed (below).

This was the perfect return to the stage after a long time away. We’ll see you there again soon!
