A long overdue thank you | Farewell show tickets

As many of you heard, our last performance will be November 22, 2014.

We’ve accumulated many overdue thank you’s in ten years. We’re sure to forget a name or two, so our apologies in advance.

Our undying love and respect to our families—

A public thank you to our significant others and important ladies: Kate Splendoria Holler, Christina Baker, Ewa Budka, Heather Tucker, and Kim Douglas. They have been the uncredited heroes in our story and they deserve acknowledgment. Their strength and support have guided us through many ups and downs. We’re forever grateful to them. We know it has not been easy and we know we’re a bunch of lucky bastards. Don’t think we don’t.

Thank you to our parents: Lori Spilker, Rob Spilker, Jeff Holler, George and Terri Jones, Jon and Judy Koenig, David and Andrea Baker, Tom Brewer, Diane Hawn, John Jatcko, and Barb Jatcko for their life-long support and encouragement. It’s truly one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their children.

Special thanks: Josh and Dana Koenig, Emily Jones, Jay and Nikki Brewer, JJ and Pete Magliocco, Joe Baker, Julie Baker, and Sara Jatcko.

Venu and Shannon, we’re forever in your debt. We’re still at a loss for words. Love you.

Endless gratitude to all our fans/friends—

It’s been one hell of a journey. Some of you saw us take our first steps onto the tiny Stagger Inn stage. We had four songs to our name and no understanding of how it would go over. Well, it went over. Again and again.

Thank you for sharing this experience with us. It’s been our pleasure performing for you; it’s been our honor getting to know you. We appreciate the passion you have for our music and we’re flattered to hear about its effect on your life. You have two more opportunities to see us. Hopefully you’re able to attend at least one.
