KY, MO, IA, MN + IL with Avetts this week; from Jacob
We made it to Lexington, KY last night around 1AM after playing in Covington KY for our 4th show with The Avett Brothers. Thanks to all who have made a point to talk to us and buy CDs at these shows, we really enjoy visiting with you. I think the highlight of these shows so far was Bob Crawford playing trumpet with us on “Bananafish” in Columbus, OH. If you missed this spectacular phenomenon don’t worry, I heard bob might do it again sometime soon.
We are thrilled about the the upcoming shows, especially St. Louis and Chicago, as we will get to see many friends and family. Today the Avetts have the day off, but we are performing at Woodsongs Old -Time Radio Hour this evening. Afterward, there will be a Nintendo DS party in room 304 at the Holiday Inn in Lexington.
After that, we’ll be wrapping up the Avett tour with these shows this week:
6/23/2009 Lexington, KY Kentucky Theatre
6/25/2009 St. Louis, MO The Pageant
6/26/2009 Des Moines, IA Hoyt Sherman Theatre
6/27/2009 Minneapolis, MN Minnesota Zoo Amphitheater
6/28/2009 Chicago, IL House of Blues
On a side note, I would also like to express a special thanks to some lovely ladies who shared their home with us in Grand Rapids a few nights ago.
I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day.
