We had an awesome time in Crested Butte the past day and a half! Played our gig with dogs running in between us on stage, taken care of by Tully’s bar and grill where we jammed late night brass band style, then climbed to the top of the Continental Divide in a Jeep driven by our baddass new friend, Vanessa. Woah… Check some pics and then come out to our show tonight Steve’s Guitars in Carbondale, CO!
On our way from Denver to Grand Junction the band decided to stop at an ARC Thrift Store for saucy deals on some used clothes. Outside the store, we made friends with Rico Suave and his friend Frank, two musicians who were practicing for thier upcoming Fourth of July gig. Cool ass dudes. Frank frank played the maracas as well as a wooden castanet clapper on his belly, and Rico held down the guitar (he was actually stationed in Fort Polk years ago). We decided to play Struttin with Some BBQ, one of our favorite Louis Armstrong originals! Enjoy
When we bought the van in 2012, it had 34 miles on it. Now we’re over 200,000!
Alright folks, it’s time for another edition of BBR!
Today I’m taking y’all back down to Louisiana, and introducing you to one of the funniest Cajuns that ever was!
Mr Justin Wilson!
If you’ve ever heard of any Boudreaux and Thibodeaux jokes or just about any Cajun jokes, it was this man who always told em best! This was another record that my Aunt Pat passed on to me, and I’m happy to share it with y’all! However, I’m unable to find any cuts online, so these cooking videos will have to do!
Yeah folks, that’s a real Cajun man!
Tonight, we’re in Grand Junction and performing at Sabrosa! We’re hitting sometime after 10pm so y’all got plenty of time to have a few drinks and get your dancing feet ready!

We just spent 2 days with our great friend, Doug, at his awesome farm in Iowa, eating pie and crisping in the sun on the Des Moines river. We also thought it was necessary to play Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries for the cows. Naturally we want to continue posting about us playing standards in strange places, so hit us up if you have a strange suggestion on our tour route.
Oh, and all those pies were courtesy of Beth M. Howard, Ms. American Pie herself! Baked with wisdom and love #theworldneedsmorepie
