March 1st fundraiser show / online donation / tour thank you’s

As many of you heard, our van was stolen three weeks ago. There is still an ongoing police investigation so we have no updates at this moment. What we can divulge is that we have a show at Off Broadway in STL on MARCH 1st. The show will be a fundraiser to help raise money for a new van. It will feature John Henry, and the Jump Starts. We will not charge any extra to get in the door. $10 cover per usual.We strongly suggest buying tickets in advance for this show, which can be done by following this link:  TICKETS. For those who live far away, but wish to donate. Feel free to follow this link, and thank you so very much in advance:


If you haven’t heard about our van yet. Here’s the River Front Times write-up. Prepare for your jaw to drop:

with love and gratitude,



Our band woke up in our own beds this sunny Monday morning in STL. And I’m sure we all have the same thing in mind:

Best. Tour. Ever.

Many thanks to give. Let’s start with all of our family, friends, and fans that travelled near and far. We saw familiar faces and made a lot of new friends along the way. The sheer numbers in which people attended our performances was truly humbling. Thanks to every single one of you. We felt your love and we hope to see you all again real soon.

Thanks to all the bands we played with. We appreciate you hosting us in your respective cities. We were blown away by the caliber of musicianship and performers. We learned and were inspired by you. You made us a better band.

Thanks to all the great venues and venue staff. We played our favorite rooms and worked together with some of our favorite venue staff. Thanks for allowing us to play your stage. It was an honor.

Thanks to every radio station that played us; and every newspaper, magazine, or blog that wrote about us. Thanks to Tinderbox and Bekah Manning for making this happen.

Thanks to our good friend, John Joern, for lending us his van (lovingly known as: The White Whale). Because of John we didn’t have to cancel a single date after the theft of our van. The White Whale effortlessly swam from city to city, from venue to venue, and from hotel to hotel. Thanks, John. She’s a beaut.

BIG, BIG, BIG thanks to Shannon and Venu. Your generosity and hospitality is simply immeasurable. We’re still struggling to find new ways in which to say ‘thank you’. Much love. Stay warm in Nashville.

Seriously, thanks to all of you. We’re still in shock. Best tour experience yet. We hope to see you all very soon. Until then, take care of yourselves and those around you.
