south lake union block party -- friday the 12th 4 pm 

Our next show is going to be another outdoor festival -- this time in the bustling booming heart of Seattle -- south lake union.  Underneath the float planes, watching the birds roost on the luxury yachts -- what better place to unleash a rock n roll show?  All ages, out doors, come on out!!

Head East! 

We'll be playing at the three Rivers winery in Walla Walla this friday, playing 2 sets and some acoustic songs and some more new tunes --  Cool town!  we'e looking forward to getting back there and driving through the rolling hills....  Be a fun night!

best, D



this saturday at West Seattle Festival 1 pm, all - ages, free,  

Hey all Seattle friends and others (significant too) we'll be performing on the California stage at the West Seattle Junction at 1 pm this saturday, joining  a bunch of great bands on the line up for the summer festival this year.  Free, all ages, near Easy Street Records -- what more could you ask for?


I was worried you might ask for that -- the show is more fun!  see you there!

Danny, Rick, Faith and Matt and Kathy


Spokane at the Big Dipper this Friday -- Boise at the Vista Bar on Saturday 

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend, should be great shows both nights.  Friday night at the Big dipper with Kraken in Spokane, and saturday night in Boise at the Vista with our friend Jon Hale, and his band, Groggy Bikini.  We'll be playing at least one new song off the upcoming record, and are ready to hit the stage with a full truck of lead guitar and choruses that you might want to sing.  Thanks all, for your support -- D and the Makers!

Ok, Ok! Just getting to my lyrics! 

Never, ever seems like there is enough time, to take the slow, dig in route, where all the right bases are hit and everything comes out the way you want.  It gets there in the end, but still got a lot of work left on the new songs -- basics almost all in the can -- but now the vocals and final guitars ( which these days seem like icing on the music cake,) and lots of trips into the city to the studio.  Wrote a lot of the lyrics to All is lost on a ferry trip actually, so the traveling seems to be good at jarring things loose. There are a couple of chunky, herking rock songs on this one, and the vocals are coming along too.  thanks to all who came to the Sunset -- we'll be playing next in Spokane and Boise on the 17th and 18th of june, and before that, recording, recording, and the ferry!

best, Danny and Eric, Rick and Faith.

Sunset Tavern -- this Friday, the 13th!! 

Ok -- this is an old photo by John Jeffcoat who will be shooting us in a bit for a new pic.  Yes, this friday we are at the Sunset with The Garth Reeves experience, Strong suit, and then we're on to cap off a wild and hopefully lucky friday the 13th.  We'll be playing at least one new tune from the sessions and be looking forward to being back in that great sounding room -- been a while since we played there!  

Thanks to all of you, Danny and Co.

Everyday Music at 4 pm and Tractor Tavern at 9pm 

Yes!  We'll be in the record bins at Everyday Music on capitol hill in Seattle, playing a free Hockeytalkter showcase for all of you makers who want to join us!  Love playing in the stores -- kinda end up ad-libbing and things being a little more rock - n - ?  Come out!  We'll sign your cd or single!

Tomorrow night we'll be opening for the Dusty 45's at the Tractor in Ballard, going on at 9pm sharp, so don't come late if you want to catch us!  There will be some lead bass and some lead guitar.  And yes, I'll play Luckiest Man.

Best, Danny

Spokane! this saturday -- record store day and Jone's Radiator with Buffalo Jones! 

Looking forward to busting out double-eagle western shirt this weekend, courtesy of my friend Amy -- Me and the Sugarmakers will be in Spokane, playing bob Gallagher's 4000 holes on record store day.  He introduced us to Buffalo Jones, a great Spokane band that we're playing with that night at Jone's Radiator.  Kathy Moore is sitting in on Keys and some guitar, and we'll be turning up the Masterwish!  Come out and see us -- first time out to Spokane!
