The Deland Music Festival was a HOOT, ya'll!
We had 2 sets, Fantastic attendance, got loads of pics from all kinds of folks, made tons of contacts with people who loved our music/performance...and Jacob and Sharon sat in a bit with Bing Futch (who, if you haven't listened to his amazing dulcimer music...well, you're missing out! Google this guy!)...we just had a grand time!
We're all set to play McK's on Friday, 16 November - have 2 new songs we've worked out, one followed by a rousing little jig we found - and are adding a new set of jigs, to boot! The pleasure of working together on this music cannot be overstated - it's just a blast to play and work out new things together - we're blessed to have so much talent and good spirits on board!
We have a booking at a new venue for us - Taste Restaurant, in Orlando - it's in the College Park Neighborhood - nice shopping and dining district - Taste features LIVE music Fridays and Saturdays, they do some large events as well featuring many local bands - and their menu is wonderful - tapas, Caribbean-inspired, California-style - tasty stuff, ya'll!
We'll be there on 24 November - kick off at 10 p.m.! Please come and support local music and venues that provide good entertainment for your pleasure!
That said, we'll be enjoying the good spirits at McK's as part of the Black Sheep Ceili Band on 30 November - proceeds to go to the family of David Hoffman (RIP, Dave), who passed away recently and leaves his beautiful wife and two young children. Dave was part-owner of McK's - a fine establishment that is carryin' on their tradition of providing LIVE music for your enjoyment every Friday night - Black Sheep Ceili Band is a mix of happy musicians "ewe" won't want to miss!
