What The World Needs Now (is love, sweet love)


Last night, S.B. and I had our first gig playing love songs during a fancy three course dinner at The Galley Restaurant & Lounge. The restaurant is in a spacious haunted house originally owned by a sea captain, and a camera crew had just been in to film an episode for a ghost-hunter type television show!

For a month we have been practicing a set list of thirty songs, everything from Oasis to Patsy Cline, and our harmonies were really tight. A surprising number of partrons stopped by to thank us for enhancing their Valentine's Day. They especially liked S.B.'s intricate finger-picking on 'I Can't Help Falling In Love With You'. Hopefully, this will lead to us getting more gigs when the restaurant gets crazy busy this summer with boaters from the marina. Our house needs a new roof, and we can always use the extra money!

Our stage outfits.


  1. So happy it went well! Would love to hear you guys play soon. Note that your dress is the same length as SB's jacket ;P

  2. Yes', I would love to hear you two play together as well. I have to laugh at Erin's comment about the length of the dress, I was thinking the same thing when I saw it! LOL.

    You need to get that novel out! I want to read it. Hearing you read from it is like a dirty tease.
