Wowza!!! The last 3 months have just blurrrrrred right by!
Our monthly stand at Lonie Walker's Underground Wonderbar continues to be a BLAST. Our show at Chicago's best street fest - Glenwood Ave. Arts Festival - was a hoot and a half. Our friend Zach (School of Rock, Mad Hornet, The Reunion) filled in on keys, as Andrew has been teaching up a storm all summer long. Jon has established his own firm, lawyering it up... ...let him know if you need anything litigated. Sarah has been in and out of Chicago a few times now, still touring with Sugar Still, but she'll be back for the September show at Lonie's. (Sept 7) Cheryl had a major promotion at Shure Microphones, and has filled up her singing calendar with an all female BeeGee's tribute act, among other projects. Keith continues to rock out with the youngin's at School of Rock Chicago. And what about Barrett you ask? Well, he's been a traveling man as the keyboardist for Wifee and the Huzzband - Wisconsin's premiere 10 piece horn band. They just booked a 3 week tour for the fall, so he'll continue to be in and out of Chicagoland himself.
In other news, SuperHero Audio continues work on the Barrett's Hidden Agenda record. Final tracking will be done over the next month, with mixing and artwork/layout to follow. The last few sessions were Sarah layering fiddle on Jon Roger's newest track, "Walkin' with the Devil," and Barrett's tune written from depths of drunken stupor while falling in love in New Orleans, "Whiskey Makes Me Think of You."
As we shift gears into the fall, we look forward to gigging more, and adding to the catalog with new Jon tunes, Sarah tunes, a track written for Cheryl, and batch of Barrett jams.
