getting hammered and nailed down!

we've been busy getting all the pieces in place and are starting to nail down specific show times and dates.

it's a little like 8th grade shop class so far, but all fingers are accounted for and the few nails we needed to pull are coming out pretty easily.

"six guitars"' performer chase padgett has a new show guitar on the way and was only robbed one more time last week so things are looking up!

we lost our previous hotel deal but are diligently working on a new one for our performers and audiences.

also, we'll only be accepting performing group applications through january 25th! apply now if you're still interested in performing! $35 app fee required.

and here's a photo of the great victorian amusement company performing on stage at the sweet fanny adams theatre so as to help you imagine yourself here!

adaptive efficiency


there are times when you know you should just take a couple days and then be ready to run the race on monday. yesterday, i found out our friend chase padgett's home in florida was burglarized. among many other things they stole was the guitar he uses to perform his show, "6 Guitars". so i better get some rest and shake this latest cold because, come monday, i'll be busy...
