Almost spring here in 2013 Illinois. Business pretty much as usual here. Besides our usual schedule of jobs playing music, I have continued with my paintings and if I have enough of them by the fall, I'll be doing a show in Springfield. We'll see - more on that later. We have been spreading out our song list somewhat. We have always mixed it up a lot - blues, Motown, jazz, R&B, standards, surf and on & on. Because of Don's amazing development on the steel guitar, and also because we love it, we have added a good bit of old country music to our repertoire and, some pop songs that feature the instrument as well - like Sheryl Crow's, "All I Wanna Do" and George Harrison's, "My Sweet Lord".
We have been playing a great new place, The Harvest Cafe, in Delavan, Il about once a month (check out calendar). It features a very soulful farm to table menu with a great chef and a remarkable bar in a beautifully renovated old building. Well worth the trip from about anywhere.
That's it for now. Hope that our paths cross soon. Sally
