A return to our original ski hangout, Gen. Stark's Pub at the Mad River Glen "Base Box" lodge. We've been workin' this room for years and always enjoy it. We've had some stellar gigs up there this year, even though the skiin' ain't been much...even "Roll Back the Clock Day" a couple of weeks ago had a good turn-out in the Pub. This will be our last gig up ta Mad River/Gen. Stark's for this ski season, unless they wanta try ta slide in a bookin' in March, IF there's any snow...so here's yer chance if ya ain't see us up there this season!

OUR 18th ANNIVERSARY DATE!
Mon, Feb 15th 12:00am

No gig to report here, but today we celebrate our 18th year together as your honky-tonk & rockabilly trio, having had our first "get together" at Billy & Shealeen's old apartment on So. Union St. in Burlington. Billy had been on the road playin' slap bass for Wayne "The Train" Hancock in 1997 and Shea was pregnant with their first child, Calvin. Billy came off the road and he had wanted to get together with Danny & Al just to do some pickin'. So we did that in Billy's living room - just "slap" bass, acoustic rhythm guitar and Big Al's electric guitar. Danny and Al started singin' some good ol' country songs as a duet, so combined with the instrumental sound, that did it and the SRBs were born! 2/15/98

For the second year in a row fiddler Katie Trautz, who was the Director of the Summit (Trad Music) School in Montpelier an' now Executive Director of Chandler Music Hall in Randolph, has invited us to be part of the "Spice on Snow Festival", which features Cajun/Zydeco music, but, also, some other traditional string band styles including, I guess, ours. This Fest runs from this Thurs thru Sun Feb 21. Here's what their press release sez:

Even the warmest winter in Vermont can use a little heat, and The Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture will fetch sultry breezes from the bayous of Louisiana (and gentle airs from the Pacific northwest) to its 6th annual ´Spice on Snow´ Winter Music, Food and Dance Festival February 18th-21st, 2016 at venues around Montpelier. This savory gumbo of country, Cajun and blues – a celebration of all we do year round – will keep your good times rolling right through the winter´s darkest days. But get your tickets soon: www.summit-school.org! Last year, Spice on Snow drew over 1500 people to Montpelier!

This year, we bring a new lineup of nationally known performers to the Capitol City to teach workshops and play concerts throughout the weekend. Featured artists include: Foghorn Stringband (high energy old-time music from Portland, Oregon), Cajun Country Revival (featuring duo, Joel Savoy and Jese Lege, plus members of Foghorn Stringband), and the Sweetback Sisters (authentic honky-tonk and close harmonies by Emily Miller and Zara Bode). Each of these musicians have played on Prairie Home Companion, the Grand Ole Opry, Mountain Stage, Blackpot Festival, and are known internationally. Spice on Snow festival also serves up authentic Cajun food by Chef Bill Koucky, a special performance by Young Traditions Touring Group, square dances, contra dances, and Cajun two-steps and waltzes. Vermont bands on the bill include The Starline Rhythm Boys, Two Cents in the Till, Good Old Wagon, Green Mountain Playboys, Zeichner Band, the Olabelles, Barn Band Duo and more. Full festival schedule and ticket sales are available online at www.summit-school.org

Now, although we are "part" of the Festival, you can still come just to catch us. Since this is a "work day", the owners of Sweet Melissa's have set our start time an hour earlier, so it will be 8pm an' we'll be done at 11pm. We had a real good attendance at our show last year an' hope for the same for this. It's been a bit since we've played Sweet Melissa's, so we're lookin' forward to it....and the "Spice on Snow" Festival.

This venue is a change from the originally scheduled Castlerock Pub one up ta Sugarbush. Apparently some private event at Castlerock an' they got their own band - what the heck? Why didn't they hire a bunch of Old Guys playin' Country like us?! LOL Well, anyway, we're shifted to the Green Mtn. Lounge on the upper floor of the base lodge at Mt. Ellen an' it's just as good. So we'll be here for an après-ski from 3 - 6pm. Ya don't have ta ski ta come see us!
