We are very pleased to announce that we’re going to once again be opening up for The New Riders of the Purple Sage at Woodlands Tavern on Thursday, September 25th. We’ll be opening the night in the bar side of the venue from 8 to 10. We’ll be doing a set of LOI tunes and then a set of countrified classic rock ‘n’ roll with our good friend John Hurlbut (of the Fur Peace Ranch) as Hurl & The Spins. The New Riders take the stage at 10.

Wham Bam weekend is almost upon us! Lost on Iddings will be taking the stage at 12:45 late Friday night to close out the main stages. It’s going to be a great weekend of music and hanging out. Wham Bam is always one of the most fun, positive festivals in the area every year, and is always a high point of the summer. The weather looks good, Hannon’s Camp America is a great venue, there will be plenty of vendors and – as you can see from the schedule below – there’s a bunch of awesome music happening.
This is going to be our last LOI gig for a little bit, so we hope to see you out there soon. We’ve got a special Hurl & The Spins gig in September in Columbus we’ll be talking more about soon, and we should be announcing some LOI shows for later in the year.

What a fantastic weekend – Blazestock 5 was an absolute blast. The weather, the company, the grounds, the food, the music – all of it great. It was a really positive atmosphere and everyone there was enjoying themselves. It was a fun, peaceful weekend out in the woods. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention some of the other acts that played – Playhouse, Shouts & Whispers, Vic Lora and others.
We got to play a set with our friend John Hurlbut of the Fur Peach Ranch as Hurl & The Spins and then a set of our own. Jorma Kaukonen played a solo song, then a couple with John and then one with us. We did a version of “All Along the Watchtower”. To top it off, we even got a mention on Jorma’s blog.
The next day, Jorma’s wife Vanessa and John gave us a tour of the Fur Peace Ranch and Psylodelic Gallery. It’s really cool collection of artifacts from the 60’s psychedelic scene from Jorma’s own collection. There are a ton of amazing posters, clothes and instruments from that time. It’s a very cool place and worth the stop if you’re in the area.
We were very fortunate to be part of the weekend and of course very fortunate to get to play with Jorma Kaukonen. Thanks Al and Audrone for having us out and Happy Birthday Al!
