We began this band in 2011, not without a little trepidation and skittishness. After all, even though we have been playing music with more than 100 years’ combined experience, it was a little worrisome to step forward with a group of people that are considered long in the tooth by some. Right now, our youngest member is in his mid-30s, and the frontman’s 40s are waning quickly.
We were never supposed to be relevant or cool or “make it.”
But combined with your support, a lot of hard work and some venues and festivals that believe that 40-somethings still have something to say, we have been graced by a lot of success. Good music, socializing and enjoying life to the fullest isn’t just for the younger people.
This CD release means a lot to us. It is self-funded, self-produced and self-promoted. It was recorded by a local Denver recording studio, by a Colorado engineer. We don’t have a record deal, nor do we seek one. We believe in independently-produced, local music, and we hope you do too.
Please come and celebrate with us. The CD release party details are as follow:
Sunday, August 24, 2014
Jazz at Jack’s, Downtown Denver
Show begins at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $15, which includes a limited-edition copy of the CD that will not be sold anywhere else. It will only be available to attendees of the event. If you bring a friend, use the coupon code “couples” and get $5 off the total price. Click here to get your tickets.
You can preview some of the music at our Bandcamp page. Again, attendees of this party will get Volumes 1 and 2. Volume 2 hasn’t been released yet.
We sincerely hope to see you on the 24th. Thanks for all your support since 2011. And please share this blog post!
