We have what we need and play with amps.
We have played monthly and more often in fall and spring, but not much in summer as we all work full time jobs and like to take our family vacations. Committed but otherwise occupied by family and work, so we were a real band and celebrate what we've done with this CD. We are not active now as other work has taken over, but we still love this website and sell CD's and we hope you purchase and enjoy!

Over the years, each of us have "blooped", even Dan who is featured on the djembe, but not blooping on this version, he's the steady hand behind the bloops, ...but he has had his time on the cutting room floor as we all have, and have learned to laugh at being there!
Hey all...folk musician, my sister, Lori Buffalo, will be playing at Tesoros Cafe for Open Mic so please come listen to this great sister and songwriter!
