Opening for Little Feat
We were invited to open for the legendary band Little Feat. Click the button below to watch some videos from that show.
Opening for Donna Jean Godchaux
As life-long Dead fans we were blown away by the opportunity to open for Donna Jean from the Grateful Dead. The highlight of the night: Donna serenading us with Ship of Fools during dinner before the show, which she told us was her favorite Dead tune. Follow the link below to hear a live version of our original song "Too Late" from that show.
