This Friday, 10/5, we'll be featured on the KNON 89.3 Texas Renegade Show, because, well, we're renegades! We'll be live on the air from 5:30-6 on the famous Mark Mundy show. After that, we are playing at The Opening Bell at 7:30. Dial us up.
This Friday, 7/20, Don and Erik will be playing as a bluegrass duo - The Lonesome Johnson Boys. Everyone else is on vacation, but these hard working pickers will still be at it to play some tunes down by White Rock Lake as part of the Bath House Cultural Center's Festival of Independent Theatres. We play from 10-11pm as part of their FIT Underground series. So come on down, because Friday is bath night, whether you need one or not!
While we thoroughly enjoyed playing brunch at Fearing's surrounded by bottles of wine that cost more than our instruments, we will be playing in a little more familiar surroundings the next two months.
July 12th, we'll be back at Adair's for the 7 o'clock show. Come join us and enjoy one of the best burgers in Dallas.
Then on August 25th, we'll be at Double Wide with the Straw Hat Society. We go on at 9, and then Straw Hat Society will finish out the night. Tickets are $10 for the show and we'll post the link when they go on sale.
Also another thanks to our neighbor Over the Bridge Arts and Houndstooth Coffee for a very fun time last Saturday at the Over the Bridge Summer Solstice Festival, and to Papa Racz for having us play at his birthday party.
Over the Bridge Arts is having a free, family-friendly arts festival celebrating the summer solstice and the creative arts at Sylvan 30, and they were kind enough to invite us to play from 2-3p on 6/24.
They have a kickstarter campaign if you would like to donate or be a part of this event. Sylvan 30 is a fun area in our part of town with several of our favorite hang outs. The festival is from 9a-9p with several bands, dancers, artists and other performers throughout the day.
We also have a real swanky gig on June 18th. We are very excited because it is a brunch gig, and we've been after one of those. My friends in Atlanta, The Georgia Mountain String Band and the Glumson Brothers, play bluegrass brunches all the time. There are three or four bluegrass brunches every weekend in Atlanta, but it hasn't caught on here just yet.
And not only are we going to have a bluegrass brunch in June, we're doing it in a decidedly Dallas way. At the Ritz-Carlton.
Oh yeah. We are proud to be the entertainment this Father's Day at Fearing's, arguably the finest restaurant in Dallas. The event is a Father's Day BBQ and Bluegrass Brunch; we are playing from 11am until 3. You won't need a ticket for this show, but you will need a reservation, and I would suggest getting one soon.
We had a real treat Saturday at AllGood. Dustin Ballard, who plays fiddle with Erik and Larry in Shoot Low Sheriff hopped up on stage and did several songs with us. You see, up to this point, we've been quite the outlaw bluegrass band, playing with a drummer and in Texas without a fiddle. And that fiddle sounded really good. Dustin said he'd join us again sometime, and we might also have another fiddle player join us too.
Our next show is April 20th at Adair's Saloon. Hope you can join us. To get a preview, and to see some of Dustin's fine rosin rubbin', check out this video and the ones the Home page. See ya on 420.
Sunday night was a ton of fun at Adair's. They have one of the burgers in town and it is the perfect venue for some country music and pickin'. We'll be back there on Thursday, April 20th. We will also be playing near the Oak Cliff Mardi Gras parade on Clifton Street the afternoon of the parade, 2/26. Float on by and hang out with us.
