For the first time ever in all the years of spending our favorite holiday of the year (Groundhogs Day) at the Lake of the Ozarks, we finally had warm enough weather to set up all of our band gear on the front porch of the Bluff House there at Pelican Point and play our music out over the lake for hundreds of homeowners to hear. And it was fun-nomenal!! Several of us arrived a little earlier than normal and had the PA and lights set up outside on this natural bluff porch, as the rest of the band trickled in. Once we started, I don’t think we stopped for over three hours straight. And as the night began to come around, many boats had stopped out in front of the Bluff House for an extended listen.

That evening was the highlight of the whole four day weekend get away.

The rest of it was a very relaxing as we reminded ourselves why we do this music thing together. And as a bonus, it was a very productive event. Which has lands us back into the studio recording and refining new songs. So as we seek out the isolation of this process please look forward to the time when we bring these new works of art to you for your listening pleasure.

Enjoy today, do the other stuff tomorrow.

This is our annual pack up the pickup, load up all the recording gear, and head to the Lake of the Ozarks, extended weekend for the band. Once a year we set up a 24 channel digital studio in one of the most well maintained rustic facilities on this earth. The location is Pelican Point, which is a private grouping of stone and cedar homes that provides lodging and a location for the group to assemble for a 4 day recording session. We seek this isolation. We seek this inspiration. We seek the uninterrupted environment where the magic of creating music freely occurs.


Well after all has been Merry and the New Year grows weary, there comes our favorite time of the year.

When the North Wind it blows and it gets bitter cold, when February gets really near.

You know the Hog will arrive on something shinny that glides. It gets it when he puts it in gear.

He feels the wind really blow when he gives it a go.
