Hope all of our follows are healthy and safe.

It has been over a year since the band as a whole have been able to rehearse or perform. We have been able to have small ensembles rehearse and perform some live streams up until January.

Although it has been a tough year, we are happy to have developed a new ensemble. “The Bootnecks,” are an ensemble of 9 players which will perform music from numerous genres. They are another musical part of our band family and will be led by Cornetist/vocalist Chris Devlin.

We have been working hard converting our rehearsal facility into a live stream recording studio. We were hoping to go livestream at the beginning of March, however other things have prevented us from doing so.

Our goal is, once it is safe to get back together in small groups, to post live streams for everyone’s listening enjoyment.

It’s been a terrible time over the past year for all artists and musician’s and we hope you have supported all those that are entertaining us through live streams and recordings.

In the meantime, let’s all stay safe and do our best to get through this present situation.

We will keep you updated regarding future performances once we have a better understanding of what the future holds.

Each and everyone of us in the band can hardly wait for that day we can perform live for YOU……our fantastic supporters.

Cheers

Paul
