Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Proud To Be The Music Makers...

After several years of attending Maker Faire as wide-eyed ticket-holding spectators, it was very cool to attend as a MAKER this year, performing on the Pedal Powered Stage! When we first saw Justin Ancheta's Pedal Powered Stage four years ago, it was one bike powering the PA system for one band. This year, there were two full days of music, and a whole army of bikes powered by anyone willing to provide some pedal power - kids and adults alike!

Here's a picture of the kids:

This weekend we are playing two private events in Half Moon Bay. If you want to explore hiring us for your own house concert or event, please drop us a line! We love to be involved in helping to create community through our music.

Some new dates added (including a NEW event for the coastside, Passegiatta), and an exciting offer, below.

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

More CDs are here!

Many of you met us while we were sold out of our first run of CDs. Well, we are pleased to say that we have ordered a fresh batch! These are four original songs, written by us, professionally produced and recorded at Soundtek Studio.

It's always interesting for us to listen back to this recording and notice how our sound has evolved.

For those of you who come to one of our live performances (see below), you can pick up a copy of the CD for a donation level of your choice.

AND, for a limited time, we are offering this FUN deal:

You know the feeling of going to your mailbox, grabbing the stack of mail, and then discovering a handwritten envelope addressed to YOU? You enjoy the texture and weight of the paper...the color of the ink...the curves and contours of the lines spelling out your name. It's a throwback to a different time, when exchanges of words over long distances were slower and perhaps more personalized. Some things haven't changed. Our love of a good paper, addressed to us by name. Evidence of a real human being's hands at work. The feeling that someone took the time to create something for us specifically. The anticipation and surprise of opening a wrapped gift or a sealed envelope. This is what we've been craving.

How about you?

Now, for a limited time, you can get a signed copy of our CD, in a hand-lettered envelope addressed to you, PLUS a bonus piece of fun art in the envelope straight from Lisa's studio, for a donation of $25 (includes tax and shipping). The proceeds will benefit our our next professionally produced and recorded CD project.

We hope you enjoy receiving this mail as much as we enjoy making it!
