Cinco De Mayo

Welcome May! First, a big thank you to everyone who stopped by and stuck around Mt. Vernon's "Chalk The Walk" yesterday *after* the rains!  We love this unique fun family event.  A special thank you to the lovely lady who took this cool photo of Jim.  In honor of "Cinco De Mayo" this week's featured song is "Cosa Picante" from our CD "25" 
It just so happens that Jim was actually playing this song when the picture was taken...
Also want to remind everyone that you can hear this song and much more on May 15th at JP's 207 in Washington Iowa starting at 8:30 pm.
Thanks, and have a great week!

Georgie Boy

Good Monday to you! "Georgie Boy" from our CD "Old School" was 'inspired' by a few different things.... including a wonderful doggie whose birthday would have fallen later this week.... so here's to Ch. Winfield Adams Crown Royal  aka "Georgie Boy"    
Also, if you're in the area, save Sunday, May 3 for Chalk The Walk, we're playing late afternoon and we promise it will be a great time! 
Thanks, and have a great week!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Congratulations, you've made it to the very last Monday in Winter! Weeeeeee! All righty then!  And since tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, let's have a tune that's been said to sound like "Jimi Hendrix in Ireland"
here's "Gypsy Moth" from "Too Many Pictures"
(green beer not included)  LOL
And, if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop in to Mt. Vernon's "Skillet Café" for Lunch (11:30-1) for some great Irish food and Irish fiddle music from our fiddler Catherine.
Thanks and have a great week!
