Oh the places you'll go! We're going to places we've never been before and it would mean the world to us if we had some friends waiting there! Know anyone in any of these places? Let them know the Shambles are coming to make it swing! This is what it's all about y'all!
There's nothing like spending time with family and dear friends on the road. We play in a lot of strange places, some where we don't know a soul. Here in Wilmington we were wined, dined, and housed by two of our favorite Wilmingtonians Betsy and Julie. It's an amazing feeling knowing we've got friends in low places. Betsy and Julie, y'all were a blessing! Here are some aesthetically pleasing pictures of their beautiful back porch scene.
We're playing in Beaufort tonight out in the Outer Banks. The town is about a 30 minute drive, but less than 10 miles as the crow flies, from Harker's Island. Harker's is known for a dialect specific to this island and the areas immediately around it, this dialect is called "High Tider" or as it's pronounced in the dialect "Hoi Toider".
Hey Shambles family. We're back from Shakori and we've just about scrubbed away all of the mud. We had a mighty fine time serving up songs old and new during our two sets in the dance tent. They took a chance on us when we were just starting out so it's an honor to have played at our 4th Shakori. Everyone's favorite trumpeter, Matt Hall, had a proper retirement party that only Shakori could provide. His legacy will be felt and it's certainly not the last you'll see of him. We're excited to announce that his shoes will be filled by San Francisco native Danny Grewen on trombone. Welcome to the family Danny!
