Don your gayest apparel and come downtown for a night of coy fireside chats, fruit cakes, inappropriately worn mistletoe, missing Christmas bonuses, cozy companionship, egg nog, and crazy uncle Bobbys famous ‘secret horsey rides’. The only thing missing will be the occasional disfunctional family meltdown. We’ll see if we can take care of that on stage.

We learned a whole slew of holiday themed songs (half assed have you), and have a couple extra special prizes and gifts to give out to the people wearing the best sweaters, or whoever happens to pick them up off the floor at the end of the night.

This is taking the place of our usual New Years Eve show, so dont hold out for that one. Its not happening. Pat will be off in Ogallala that night, feeding less fortunate children (His own). We will be back at it again in 2011 so come down and wish eachother a merry x-mas and happy new year.

2010 was a great year for us as a band. I think a lot of us went through some big changes on and off the stage. Here are a couple that come to mind:
Brad finished his masters program and started his first ‘real’ job as a special education teacher.
Greg ran for county commisioner of Lancaster County AND had a baby.
Ben bought a house
I got a new position at work.
Trevor bought a new ‘band van’ and retired Frank the Tank.
Pat built a new deck and actually let us go on tour. But just for 6 days.
