We just returned from our annual four day retreat to the Lake of the Ozarks where we explore the realms of inner thoughts and values, new dreams and visions, and how to convert these view ports into new and interesting music. A few interesting melodies surfaced. But to be truthful, most of our creative time was spent rehearsing for the up coming CD Release party.

It was a very relaxing time as we reminded ourselves why we do this music thing together.

Enjoy today, do the other stuff tomorrow.

OS out...


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.

The Ground Hog?s on a Scooter this year.
