SATURDAY, MAY 19 is a BIG DAY for us in Boston!!!

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I've written.  Oops. I've been hard at work with the Jumping Monkeys finishing up our new CD and YES, my friends, it looks like it'll be done next month, woo hoo!!!  I'll have a lot to say when it's done, but I'm feeling really good about this one. I'm hoping y'all will like it.

Meanwhile... I wanted to let you know about this coming SATURDAY, MAY 19!  We'll be playing THREE family shows that day:

First, we'll be at Boston's Franklin Park Zoo to help celebrate "Zoo 100," their 100th birthday!  We'll play two sets outdoors, 10:15 am and 11:15 am. Cupcakes and animal presentations will also be offered as part of the party that day.

Then, we'll zoom down to Boston's EarthFest on the Esplanade along the banks of the Charles River to play on their kids' stage at from 3:00-3:45 pm.  This will be our second time playing at both the Zoo and Earthfest and we are so excited for our full-day-full-band musical extravaganza!

We also performed in McLean, VA this past Wednesday for our first time at the McLean Cultural Center and wow, we had an amazing time!  We were treated like national act royalty with amazing sound engineers, organic boxed lunches, etc., and a wonderful lively audience in a beautiful outdoor setting. Thank you, McLean for a wonderful day!

Hope to see you all this Saturday at one of our shows!
