Well we are finally rested up from our tour out to Park City, Utah to perform at The Eco-Hideaway event at The Claim Jumper on Main Streetduring the Sundance Film Festival, thanks to Deb Durkin of Durkin Entertainment! We also played a show at the World Famous Zoo Bar in Lincoln, Nebraska. On our way out where we met some awesome new friends like Andrew Michael Smith who writes a blog for The Blues Foundation and The Omaha Blues Society! Andrew has posted an awesome review of the band on his site! And also wrote a killer article on our guitarist Zack Hawkins! Thank you Andrew!
