Well, we finally made it home from the road. Our journey brought us to 11 shows in 7 states in 13 days. We stayed with family, old friends, and new friends nice enough to let us in for the night. In places that were new to all of us we spent the night with our old pal Red Roof Inn. It was energizing to bring the new music to places that we’ve been to before and in uncharted territory. It’s also nice to imagine the new CD in cars across the country. Maybe it’s taking the edge off of your morning commute. We want to thank all of our hosts and all of the bands that we shared stages with.
This tour was also the initiation of our new guitarist, Eli Wittman. Eli will be continuing the legacy started by Nathan Huvard while Nathan heads north to Yale for the fabled Ivy League. They played together everyday, discussing whatever guitarists discuss, and we’re excited to share that Eli is fully onboard. A recent jazz studies graduate of UNC Greensboro, Eli will bring hot licks and compositional prowess to our traveling circus.
The Gateway Arch of St. Louis is a marvel of human design and creation, and is a must see on any road trip up the Mississippi. While Danny G and Ellis caught a Cardinal’s game at Busch Stadium, the rest of the gang went to see the glorious creature way up close. Clad in stainless steel and standing a mighty 630 feet, it happens to be the largest arch in the world.
