Mustaches Across America Tour 2014!!

Submitted by Ben on

Friends, we are hitting the road once again. We'll be packing up our trusty steed with all the necessities of tour: instruments, cables, extra strings, frosty beverages, reading materials, plenty of undies, socks, snacks and a bunch of mustachioed musicians. We're hitting the road for the month of September and traveling across this fine country of ours. We're all over the place - check out the shows over there to the right ---> CA, OR, NE, IL, WI, KY, TN, NC, GA & MO. We're waxing our mustaches and riding, starting tomorrow in Arcata, CA. We hope you'll all join us for some fine revelry! Please share with friends in the towns where we're headed. Thanks all!

More Banjo, Less Pants

Thanks to each and every one of you crazy people that came out to our show at Outside Lands Music Festival - thank you for dancing, smiling, singing along AND to everyone that turned our set into a pants-less dance party. You all put smiles on our faces that won't come off for a long long time.
This photo was taken when we hopped off stage at the end of our set to play a few tunes out at the hay bales. You showed us a helluva time San Francisco! The photo unfortunately doesn't quite capture the pants-less folks in the crowd.

Boise, ID....Where Birds Fall From the Sky

Submitted by Ben on

We are currently in a hotel, down by the river in Boise, ID. We are waiting to head downtown where we'll play for FREE today in Grove Plaza at 5pm. Boise is a nutty place...not like the people are crazy (maybe they are...I'm not really sure), but the weather patterns here are drastic and can shift in a moment's notice. Last time we were here to play this very event we experienced super-sized rain drops --> into hail --> into gale force winds. As we were walking through downtown after our show we came upon a bird that looked like it was hurt in the middle of the road. Our trusty fiddle player threw his shirt over the top of the bird and we took it back to our hotel with us. Over and over we called bird rescue, but it was far too late and nobody answered. The next morning we took our little birdy down to the rescue facility and turned our him in. It turns out he was a baby Peregrine falcon - the fastest animal in the world. It had fallen from its nest on top of a building in downtown Boise and we happened to snap it up before something happened to him. He was returned safely to his nest and mama bird was quite happy in the end.

Crazy things happen in Boise, ID...and especially to those bands that play at Alive After Five. You should come down today to check out what might happen to us this time.

Here's our bird friend --->
