All three gigs over the last weekend went great. First on Friday we played for IJsselpop in IJsselstein. A great little popfestival, which also supports local bands. A pity that this was the last edition of the festival, but we’re glad to have been able to be part of it. On Saturday we were booked for a private party at a small horse ranch in Voorschoten…western style. Continue reading →
That was another great weekend. Saturday we went to Germany for the Cowtown Rocks Again weekender, which was a lot of fun. The scene was an old western-type street and the stage was set up was outside. First up were the Haystack Hi-tones, who did a great set. Soon the folks were boppin’ and jivin’ around and the atmosphere was great. Then we were up. Continue reading →
It was a great weekend again. This time we played the ‘Into The Great Wide Open’-festival, on the beautiful island Vlieland, The Netherlands. Our set went like a dream, with very enthousiastic response from the crowd that came to…see us play on the stage, which was set in the middle of the Continue reading →
We had us a great time at the Appalachian and Bluegrass music festival in Omagh, N-Ireland again. We met a lot of our friends and made us many new ones. The shows all went very well and we sold out on the cds. Especially the show at the sold out marquee, on Saturday night, was fantastic! Also the sessions at the pub near where we were staying were great. The organiser of the festival Continue reading →
Summer break has only just been over, and already we’ve been pretty busy during the last weekend. On Friday we played at a festival featuring country, rockabilly and bluegrass music in The Hague at the Grote Markt, right in the city centre. Also performing were our friends from ‘K.C. Credit and the Cashiers’ and ‘Stringcaster’. It was great to see those guys again, as well as catching up with our local friends that came to see us all play. Continue reading →
As we wrote earlier, the summer break is coming up. After that we’ll continue working on our forthcoming cd for the Excelsior label.

The whole project is quite exciting for us, as Excelsior Recordings is one of the major labels over here in Holland. We sure are proud to be on there.

It has been a wonderful weekend again. First, on Friday, we played In Schaffhausen. A gig Tina Clark organised for us. The name of the bar is Dolder2, and we sure had a lot of fun. Saw some old friends and made some new ones. We sure will be back there sometime. Thanks Tina, for your hospitality!
Our summer holiday break is coming up, so it’s time to reflect some on the passed couple of months. We had some pretty memorable gigs and made lots of new friends. It was a pretty eclectic mix of events where we performed: apart from our clubdates we played at bluesfestivals, rockabilly festivals, a jazzfestival, a punk/garage/hardcore festival and later in the year we’ll be at the ‘Into the great wide open’- Continue reading →
