Greetings Y'all,

We had our best July ever in terms of quality gigs and people joining us for an eclectic blend of good times and cheer. I don't usually toot my horn (since I'm the guitar player...) but the band was awesome at the Yacht Club last week. You should really consider hiring them for a private party, BBQ, hoedown or some such thing.

We had much fun at the Calistoga Farmers Market on Saturday (it didn't heat up until after we were done!) Thanks to all our Napa Valley friends who stopped by for veggies and music. August is here and we'd love to see you so, when you're out and about stop by and say hello! Dates below...

Tools of the trade... Yacht Club, Bodega Harbour
(Thank you, Sue)

Getting a jump on September since I'm notorious for getting this newsletter out on time, right? Anyway, i wanted to let you know about a special evening to be had. Our dear friend Lowell Daniels will be joining Bill and I for an evening of amazing song you won't want to miss.
