Thank you so very much, gentlemen, we greatly appreciate the kind words! Brian, our first show was June 5th, 2004, so May 31st will be almost exactly 15 years from that first show. It's very difficult to believe - I was 35 when the band started, and will be turning 50 just days before this show. I honestly never expected that I'd still be doing this at the age of 50, but here I am, not really feeling all that different, I think, than I did back then (maybe just a bit more tired... Big Grin ). I'm so proud of this band, what we've been able to accomplish and that we've kept our friendships through all these years. We were truly lucky to have found each other, I can't imagine anybody else in this band but these four people!

We're hoping to make this show a bit different, more special than a regular show. Contemplating now some ideas... Stay tuned.

Thanks again!

Yes, I was there! Along with The Volcanos as a trio!

It's very difficult to believe

Same for me! Holy cow so much has happened since then. But 15 years? Wow.

You guys should be very proud of your recorded output and track record of stellar shows. Congrats again!

Ooops, so sorry I failed to reply to you comments above, guys! But I do greatly, GREATLY appreciate the encouragement and the kind words! All three of you have played a big role in our past 15 years, and we are very grateful!

We just got the poster, by the great Anthony Carpenter, for the show! It's pretty amazing! (And yes, those four guys are indeed us, you can probably recognize us!)
