WE PLAYED OUR LAST GIG, for the time being, last Friday. A delightful hour at a nearby nursing home--perhaps the purest performance a musician can ask for. No posing, no worries, no status. Just music, and the way it connects us.
And now... we're here, quiet, and waiting for our baby to come meet us.
Quiet--not so much actually, between the croaks of the migrating Sandhill Cranes, whines of another pregnant cat (oy vey), and laughter from the steady parade of bright-eyed, fun-loving, and passionate teenagers, friends of Joe's daughter, who grace our home with their enthusiasm.
Still, our performance schedule is (except for a few local events) on hold until late May. Stay tuned for an update announcement, because we'll be hitting the road in full force come then.
While Nikki readies for the baby, Joe works at de-constructing our new transport vehicle (pictured above), a 1977 Coachmen Leprechaun. The poor little bugger sat for years in a storage lot before he found his way to us. Joe's found "surprisingly little structural damage." Faint praise? Look past the chaos, he says, to the solid bones beneath. Pictures to come.
So stay tuned for baby, and stay tuned for a fun summer. We will see you on the road. And we'll be thrilled for you to meet the newest member of the Sapsucker crew.
