Been Awhile… But things are percolating…

I know it’s been awhile since I posted any sort of updates, but with moving to Jacksonville and all, it’s taken a bit of time to get settled in and moving forward with the music again. That said, here’s a couple updates:

Bear & Robert (myself and Cindy Bear) are playing together this weekend! Tomorrow morning (Saturday Nov. 19th) at the Riverside Arts Market (95 Riverside Ave., Jacksonville, FL) from 10:30 to 11:30 am. come on out and say hi, and listen to our folk-blues brew!

Sunday, we’re headed down to the Farm in Brooksville, FL (19234 Lake Lindsey Rd, Brooksville, Florida) for the Florida Music Food Initiative-we’re playing from 2:30 to 3pm, and helping to replenish food banks across Florida. Please bring some canned goods to donate for this worthy cause!

A NEW band is in the works, and hopefully will be gigging in the New Year, so keep an eye on this space for more news!

“Goin Down To Florida” featured on Blues 411’s Baker’s Dozen!

BakersDozen15

Today on A Baker’s Dozen of Blues, ChefJimi Patricola throws the spotlight on blues artists that aren’t well known, but should be-to quote-

Our Amuse Bouche this week is ‘Under The Radar- Part 2”. We like to feature some artists who might not be well known to the general public, but should be. These bands are putting out high quality music and by you hanging with us you can have a step on all the other folks who still don’t know about them. Hope you enjoy their music and support them in any way possible.

“Cheap Cadillac” is the tune Jimi is featuring from us today-Woohoo!

You can catch the show here (and the great Blues411 website too!)

Thanks Jimi!
