- Air as crisp as apples
- on inky, starlit nights
- sleeping bags and cold hands
- hugging cups of steaming coffee
- searching for backyard buckeyes
- in raked-up leaf mountains.
- The cool air promises
- brittle winter is coming,
- but not quite yet.
Fall is here and I’m ready. I love this season! How about you? We have HUGE NEWS this month so I’ll get right to it….
- Record Deal
We are thrilled to announce that we have signed with Middle-Class Records to make our next album of all-original music. We’ve begun writing new material for the record and are planning a 2017 release.Booking Agent
We have partnered with Boston area booking agent Liz DiSessa of Heart Roots Music to handle all of our booking and tours, starting January 2017.
We’re planning a European tour this spring (finally!)
We’ve launched a new website and we’ve added great new features to make it easier to find us, follow us and keep in the know. The Penny Dispatch is officially launched as my Blog. And for our ukulele friends, we’ll be adding to our new Workshops tab over the next year with downloadable content for those who have attended one of our classes. The site was designed by our talented friend and artist, Heidi Pitre.
We had an incredible East Coast tour in August where we were honored to play with Grammy-winner Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks at Iguana in NYC. Bonus: the indomitable Mel Brooks was in the audience and we got to meet him! We also spent an afternoon with our friend, composer David Amram, which is always an enlightening affair. My favorite Amram quote of the day, “There is no ‘later’, man.” Truth. We played for the first time at the legendary Cambridge music venue, Club Passim in Haa-vaad Yaa-ad. We even managed to take a rare #DayOffBoogie and go kayaking on the ocean with fellow traveler friends.
We’ll be touring to Colorado and North Carolina this fall, then home to Kansas City for the holidays. We anticipate touring A LOT in 2017, so keep checking the new website for tour dates near you. And for those in KC, let us know if entertainment by V&P and the LCO can help you make your holiday or special event extra merry and bright.
Check the listing below for dates in Kansas City, Colorado, and North Carolina. As always, thank you for your support and encouragement!
Cheers and happy falling,
Erin (Penny) + Jeff (Victor)
