August 22 - Saturday - Cotati Accordion Festival, Cotati - stellar! We played a rousing set with so much energy I though we'd lift the whole crowd, lawnchairs and all into the air. A couple of tunes in and we had them dancing. The line up was fantastic on both days. We made fans, sold swag and simpy enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. This is the local festival you'll want to put on your calendar for next Summer.

August 13 - Downtown San Rafael Farmer's Market, San Rafael - easy going despite persistent wind. High notes were the athletic breakdancers and a Bill Murray sighting. The dancers, about 8 young guys, spontaneously started breaking to "For the Love of Pete" and continued to dazzle the crowd with their moves as we played several more tunes. Bill Murray had stopped to watch us, no doubt enjoying the live entertainment on the streets. Ya gotta love it.

June 6 - Sarah's Vineyard Annual Spring Grill, Gilroy -- This show was a lovely full moon affair. Perfect weather, good crowd, fantastic wine, dellicious grilled meat. We played a tight 90 minute set out of doors overlooking the grapevines. The Porch Flies and the Adrian Gormley Ensemble also played. This beautiful winery is definitely worth a visit whenever you're near Gilroy. Be sure and play a game of Bocce Ball on their regulation sized courts while you're there.

May 17 - Marin Civic Center Farmer's Market, San Rafael

May 2 - Graeser Winery, Calistoga
