We're very excited to be getting back to the stage on April 23rd at Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine.
This will be a socially distanced and limited capacity show, with just 50 tickets available. Show will be in the Main Hall, so if you've been to Stone Mountain before then you know how special this show is going to be. Tickets are available HERE.
Making this more unique, this is also going to be an all-acoustic performance. Thanks to Cody's gift of hunting down instruments, he tracked down a gem of an upright bass, which Greg was able to acquire. The bass had fallen into disrepair, but it was truly a diamond in the rough. It's been getting restored by an expert luthier over the last few months and having now laid eyes on it last week, I can say it was worth the wait. Greg's upright bass will be making its debut at this show and we can't wait for you to see and hear it in action with the band.
Really looking forward to seeing you up at SMAC on April 23rd. We can't think of a better way to kick off live shows this year. Gonna be a very special evening.
