Headline: State Of The Union
------------------------------

Greetings and Salutations!

In going through the process of straightening out the kinks in this Notes archive and then re-establishing all the linkage, it occurred to me from re-reading much of my previous writing that I used to have a lot more to say. About the band, music, life in general. Or rather, it used to be easier to muster up the energy to get my pithy little scribblings on line for y'all to peruse. As it is, I've let three gigs go by with nary a mention, and gigs are often the least of it all.

Well, I'm going to make myself a....er, um...Pioneer Day Resolution (good thing I live in Utah or I'd have to wait until September to motivate myself) to keep more current in this part of the site. No, I'm still not going to talk about the last few gigs, but I am going to give you the State Of The Union and let you know what lies ahead, as near as I can make out through the heat haze.

First of all, we're very excited for this upcoming concert at Getty's. Matt Meldrum and Jason Savelsberg from the FloydShow band will be joining us for a few numbers, we're going to be showcasing some new material (including one semi-theatrical piece that is unlike anything we have ever attempted before) and bringing out a few songs that haven't been played since last year. FREE TICKETS are still available for those of you who don't feel like paying for this show - which is most likely all of you, so order yours today!

Secondly, we've recently been offered the opportunity to play at the grand re-opening of Alternative Grounds, a lo cal indie cinema owned and operated by our friend John Woodhouse. There will be improv comedy, there will be rock'n'roll (same difference, really) and there will be the Utah premiere of Scranton, so come on down and check it out.

Finally, for those of you pining away for another FloydShow (and believe me, I know you're out there...the e-mails just keep on coming), do not despair. We are still holding out hope for some festival dates during August, but should that fall through we will definitely be putting all the bells & whistles together again in early September for a re-match at Getty's (nope, they're not sick of us yet). And next Thursday's gig will feature some old-old-old school Floyd tunes which we weren't able to fit into the May 10 performance.

That's all for now. I'll be back sooner than later.
