Funions 2007

So we have a new guitar player, Howard Schroeder, who plays with Dr. Brei in Crossroads. Howard is an excellent player and better yet a great guy to hang out with.

Jon Barnard is playing slide and acoustic guitar.

Jack Inghram is on board playing sax and keyboards.

These additions make us sound a little different, but at practice last night we just had a blast.

To play in bars and in front of new fans, you gotta have songs people know. We will still be playing "Just Pretending" songs and new original material (wait until the upcoming benefits, we have some new stuff with a lot of potential). So last night at practice we learned a bunch of songs. I won't give any away, but "every girl's crazy bout a sharp dressed man ...."

Here's the schedule so far for the coming months. Some of these shows are still in the planning stages, so check back here or email me at to make sure we are playing.
