• A Barnyard and a Backyard

    Posted in Blog by Brooke Trout

    We had so much fun playing at Adams’ Pack Station in the San Gabriel mountains on August 2nd. Not only did we share the stage with our ole buddies, Americana band Grit, we also got to play for an audience of no less than chickens, goats, cats and mules! This annual barnyard jamboree was surreal to say the least, but also made for a very memorable summertime adventure. The barbecue was delicious, the view was gorgeous and we are totally wanting to go back to explore some of the hiking trails! Web site: http://adamspackstation.com

    Our CD Release backyard BBQ Pool Party is coming up quick! On August 15th from 6 to 10 p.m. we’ll be joined by Jeannie and Bill Willets for a full band and performance by Jeannie and Brill as well as a songwriter-in-the-round so bring your foods and instruments and PM Brooke on FB for more details for this house concert! Yes, you read right – Brill will be joined by a full band for this very special night of performances!

    Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Jeannie Willets has been captivating audiences for more than two decades and has shared a stage with the likes of Suzanne Vega and Shawn Colvin. Songwriter Warren Pash (“Private Eyes”) says, “Jeannie plays her guitar like it’s a piano and, with all those walking bass things she does, I have to say that she’s, also, a damn good bass-player!” Joining Jeannie as a guest vocalist for our cd release party will be singer/songwriter Carrie Wade who has worked with Marty Rifkin (Bruce Springsteen) and has received accolades from Billboard, LA Music Awards, and Neil Young’s official website. Fun fact: Dave was a member of the Jeannie Willets Band from 2000 – 2002, and a member of Brooke Trout and The Anchormen from 2008 – 2010. (Brill is the current collaboration between Brooke Trout and Dave Strauss, an acoustic harmonizing duo.)
