New Years and Old Cheers
Happy New Year Dimefolk! We had a brief rest to catch our breath and count our blessings over the holidays, but we’re back on the road and feeling better than ever. We kicked off the winter tour at our old standby in DC – Gypsy Sally’s where we shared a bill with the hot pickin’ Dry Mill Road. Andrew got in a little warm up bluegrass boogie with them before the show.
THANKS D.C. and Gypsysally's for a great fun night!!

Next up was Cafe Nola in Frederick, MD, where we got some nice local press from the Frederick Playlist and had an absolute blast playing for the late night dancing crowd.
Then back up to NY, but a little further east than usual as we were part of WFUV’s “On Your Radar” series at The Landmark on Main in Long Island. WFUV is a major tastemaker in NY and national independent radio, and DJ John Platt is a legend in the field and has long been a champion of the Dime. We shared the bill with our good pal Matt Nakoa (who contributed to our “Pass it On” session) and the tour de force Caravan of Thieves. The night was capped off by all the artists and the audience singing in front of the stage.
Dan Asher and I had some time to kill backstage at the Landmark on Main Street. We had a great triple bill with Matt Nakoa, Caravan of Thieves, and Roosevelt Dime for John Platt's On Your Radar. Thanks John!NYC Bass Brunch Jazz Double Bassists KC BASS Workshop Bass Coalition

Finally we kept it close to home (especially for Craig) with a show in Jersey City at the super cool Fox & Crow. It was a great way to roll in to MLK day with a cozy packed house.
Finally, check out our full winter tour schedule (including two weeks in California), and please tag any music lovers you know in the cities we’re playing so we can keep spreading love, liberty, and the pursuit of boogie!
