We're this close to reaching 25% of our recording fund goal for 2022! We're putting most of our gig fees and tips toward this goal this year - every dollar gets us closer and your support is so appreciated!


We're also so excited to have local dynamo and all-around wonderful human Annette Almeida of Montage Bleu playing bass with us for some shows this season - Annette is a great musician and will bring so much to these performances. We're incredibly grateful!


If you're interested in catching us playing as a full band, the shows above will be perfect opportunities to do so! We may add more as the season progresses, and the times for our collaborative shows with RedFish will be announced soon!


Have you visited The Heron Educational Center for the Human Spirit yet? If not, you are missing out on this local gem! Check them out for live music, yoga, and other events that serve the needs of the human spirit in a lush, wooded setting in our own beautiful town of Westport. We will be playing in their fabulous garden on August 6th - mark your calendars now!

We had a great time playing for a great cause at the Empower Now benefit at the Pub at 2 Mile Corner in Middletown, RI last week! They raised over $1,500 and had a great turnout!


Favorite performances of ours came from Michelle Saylors, Cat Ellis, and Elizabeth Allen of The Debutantes - truly everyone was so good and we met a lot of cool new people!


Tomorrow, Friday, May 13th we return to Riptide in Tiverton, RI 7:30-10:30 with special guest Annette Almeida on bass and an intermission performance by Montage Bleu! We have a great night planned for you all! A great place to grab dinner and a drink and enjoy the good vibes!


We're thrilled to have Annette sitting in on bass!




If you miss us tomorrow, catch us next Saturday, May 21st 10am-2pm at Buttonwood Park, NB - this event is indoors in the Warming House near the duck pond. Again, we'll have Annette Almeida sitting in on bass (and I think we can convince her to play a few tunes for you as well)!
