Works Progress Administration: Music


Unreal, not kidding! My husband went to hear these guys the other night and now we've been listening 24/7 and believe me when I say that , in the car, and on the computer and on the home sound system we have been listening none stop. He went to their concert in Bridgeport the other night with my assistant Madeline and her significant other Jordan and I'm hearing it from all angles. These guys will get under your skin and into your hearts! Have fun listening….

    Jennifer, wow! I had never heard of them before but I LOVE them just from listening so far. I will tell my hubby about them and maybe he will put them (or maybe their CD) in my stocking! Ahnalin is crazy about fiddle music so she will love them too. Thanks for the tip!

    They’re coming to Indy next month. I may have to get out to see them. My hubby and I were big Toad fans in college.

    Wow. Love them. My hubby will too. It’s great to see so many of our favorites together. It’s quite the supergroup.

    Wow, love it! Thanks!

  8. YES! they were awesome! My fave is “who’s gunna cry for you”… so sad, but catchy and addicting! We had such a nice time and can’t wait ’till they get huge and we can say we saw them in a tiny, intimate setting, Like Stage One.
