Our music and arts company is busy with projects and we're constantly on the lookout for new adventures, so here's a recap of July and a peek into August!
We had a very busy July creating one of our favorite sets for Flagler Playhouse's annual Kid's Summer Camp! This year they produced The Wizard of Oz, Jr. Our kids and volunteers helped us paint some of the scenes that were seared into our childhood memories.
The Great and Powerful Oz hand puppet
The Gates of Oz
Professor Marvel's gypsy cart
The Emerald City!
We also discovered a few new spectacular venues like Yellow Dog Eats in New Smyrna Beach,
Wekiva Island in Longwood,
and the Cummer Museum in Jacksonville!
This coming month, we are thrilled to play new venues Spliff's Gastropub in Jacksonville on the 5th,
Riptides Rawbar in Ormond Beach on the 29th,
and Kona Tiki Bar in Ormond Beach on the 31st!
We are always looking for cool places to explore, so if you have a place we should play, please let us know! We are building tour routes all over the country and we would love to play your favorite venue.
Back at Flagler Playhouse, we are gearing up for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street opening September 21st and running through October 7th. This Sondheim musical is a macabre masterpiece and we are looking forward to the challenge!
Set in 1785 London, this set will be influenced by horror and elements of steampunk, so it's perfect for the Halloween season. You can purchase tickets here.
We are always planning, and this fall we're looking forward to a few trips and tours:
For our one year wedding anniversary, we'll be back at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park because we just bought tickets for the Roots Revival Festival. We look forward to camping out and supporting our friends who are on the bill!
We've also booked a mini-tour down in St. Pete in October and we're super jazzed because this trip we get to play Florida's oldest microbrewery, The Dunedin Brewery!
After that, we'll mosey on up to Appalachia for our fall Thanksgiving Tasting Tour, including dates in Greenville, SC; Black Mountain, NC; Athens, GA; and Stephen's hometown: Huntington, WV!
We could never hope to accomplish all of this without your continuous love and support! Thank you so much for listening to our music, coming out to shows, buying our merch, following our social media, letting us crash at your place on tour, and reading our newsletter! We love sharing this experience with you all.
Now go out and make your own art! Rock on!
