Thanks for visiting our page!

Dear fans, the COVID-19 pandemic is serious business, while we know the venues we play at are taking excellent care to sanitize their establishments, out of concern for keeping everyone safe, it is in the best interest of ALL that we cancel our events for the end on March. Therefore, the following dates have been canceled, March 24 and March 29.

While we know our music would certainly offer a release from reality, and offer a sense of calm during this turbulent time, we do not wish to put our fans in a position of making the decision to either come out to support us, or just stay at home and abide by the suggestions of the medical professionals to "social-distance" themselves from others.


We look forward to seeing you the end of April. 

Until then, be SAFE, remain CALM, and stay HEALTHY!
