Hi gang!

Last Tuesday’s CMC Jam was another awesome night with hosts Rob Hayes and Tim Hamman, our awesome jam crew Bob Laeng, John Kerver, Devin Hogan, Jim Belanger, Hichem Ferrah, Dan Elliott, Greg McGill, Bob DeVries and Pam Coone. Thank you all for filling the night with music for us! Thanks also to everyone who came out listen, dance and get a little silly including: Joe, Michelle, David, Todd, Vern, Lisa, Pamela, the ‘Dancing Marilyns’ and the rest of the ‘Frog Faithful.’ It’s always fun hanging with you fine people. Big thanks as always to our sponsor Dirty Town Guitar and Amps and to the staff and management of Bullfrog’s Sports Cafe, without whom we’d have to try to jam via FaceTime or something equally ridiculous.

We played a private event on Saturday. Thanks to Chris Hanna and Ray Varga for turning in awesome performances!

Hi gang!

Our appearance at John O’s at Clay’s Park was a remarkable night. Watching the room fill up as we were getting ready to play was energizing, to say the least. It was great to see all of the Clay’s Park gang in attendance, Christina behind the bar and Rich, who did a great job of keeping the flood waters off our gear! lol Also a HUGE thanks to Justin Butcher, who jumped in to save the day on bass at the last minute and just absolutely killed it all night long. :c)
