Greetings and Happy New Year from the band!
We closed out 2021 (the "2020" Tour) with tour stops in Hampton, Va; Alexandria, VA; and Annapolis, MD. Thanks to all of you, who were able to attend our shows. Along the way we got to see and hear our friends Will Downing, Maysa, Peter White, David Dyson, War, and Gerald Albright (among others).
As we move into 2022, we embark on our "Domo Tour". "Domo" in Japanese means "Thanks". In case we donšt get back your way again, we want to say "Domo" to our fans, friends, and family for your decades of support. We have decided to "wind down" from the traditional touring we've done all these years. We aren't stopping 100%, but it'll be scaled back quite a bit.
All that said, we hope you can come see us at a Venue near you. Tour Page
