Ahhh, Dirk, we'd love to, but scheduling us is a nightmare; we can barely get it together here in Santa Cruz. Our main singer, Meghan McGeary www.meghanmcgeary.com is pursuing a theater career working out of New York. She did a fantastic off-Broadway production last year..."The Blue Flower"...and she has some upcoming role offers and auditions. So...

I am pretty proud of what we sound like, though. We've reduced big band arrangements down for two ukes, bass, and vocal/melodica. Goodman/Christian, Reinhardt, Weill, Carmichael, Ellington, etc...

Thanks, Rick! I'm interested in reading the article, but mostly I want to be able to tell people that I've met you. :)

For something completely different, my old band from 1966-'68, "Autosalvage", is going to be featured sometime in the next few weeks on Terry Gross' NPR program, "Fresh Air" in a segment done by rock historian Ed Ward. We did one album for RCA. It went lead... Talk about another blast from my past...
