Lee is our band leader and marriage hitcher extraordinaire. He can't seem to keep a car long enough to find it in the parking lot. He recently acquired an RV that he has been renovating for future band touring.
Del, our resident eclectic, has recently picked up a passel of new interests, including raising Scottish Highland Cows, managing rental cabins, making greek yogurt, maintaining a large salt-water reef tank and collecting British air rifles.
Sandy plays the violin with the band part time. She comes from a musically gifted family and is so talented even the deer come out to hear her play.
Jacki is our taskmaster, but she does it with a lot of laughter. She makes excellent Kombucha and is our resident expert on all things healthy. She is a loving mother and grandmother of ten! Lee and Jacki are in their fourth decade of marriage.
Rebecca, to the surprise of her husband, suggested giving up city life for a five-hundred acre remote ranch in the Rockies. Her favorite moments are taking care of her husband, mother, daughters and granddaughters. She loves hot drinks on the porch.

We crawled out of bed to play for the Mancos, Colorado Community Church. We were pretty exhausted after our long night in Arboles and the drive home, but these people make it worth the effort!
We were lucky enough to play in the beautiful countryside of Arboles, New Mexico for their cowboy church. Around 50 attended the tent service (plus the three dogs who occasionally accompanied our singing).
I've added several "live" songs to our list. They are a little rough but I'll leave them up until we can get a studio version of them ready.
