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!
After a lot of quiet, we’re looking forward to summer months with a lot of stuff filling our calendar already, both public and private events. And we’re really excited.
We have to wait until mid-April when press releases come out to advertise more details, but it’s not giving away too much to say that we get to play big public spaces outside. The word “headlining” is used in one of our contracts, which also provides for a “greenroom,” and one gig has a baby grand on site. It’s not Bonnaroo, but some of these are the biggest shows we’ve booked. Stay tuned for when we can reveal all secrets.
In spite of the details we can’t tell you about, we can say that after a couple of private events in April, we’ll be out in public at Lighthouse Lounge on Saturday, May 14. (Adam turns 50 that week, so this seems like the perfect way to celebrate.) And we’ll cap off the summer season with a return visit to Van Sessions in September.
Looking forward to what’s to come in 2022. For now, here’s a throwback to our last visit to the van in 2021:
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!
(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.)
