Canal Day Recap

Kristy couldn’t be there, so Ardith and I represented 2/3 double-breasted (single-breasted?) at Canal Day this past Saturday. I stepped out from behind the drum kit to play guitar. Our setlist was a fun one… Josh songs, double-breasted songs, and cover songs that spanned a wide range of folk tunes made popular by Pete Seeger to Britney Spears to 80s classics. It was a great turnout and a great time.

Here we are playing under the gazebo.


Here is Ardith making some setlist notes.

Ardith will be joining me for another show at Pianos Upstairs Lounge in NYC on Thursday, August 27th. 7pm. Don’t miss it!

Canal Day Recap

Last Saturday, Kristy, Ardith, and I played Wharton’s annual Canal Day. It’s great to see how much the festival has grown so much since we first started playing it years ago.

We played under the gazebo.

After our performance, we roamed the festival and ran into Brian from The Wag. He snapped this great photo of the three of us.

What a Week!

Wow, what a week for double-breasted. Two performances and our photo up on a Times Square jumbotron!

Wednesday – Chalfonte Hotel

The Chalfonte welcomed us back for another performance in beautiful Cape May, NJ. We played to a packed house! We’re so grateful to their staff for continued support and promotion of our music.

Saturday – Canal Day

We enjoy playing this outdoor festival each year. This year was particularly great because of the gorgeous weather. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer day and a nicer audience.

Thanks to everyone who joined us this week!
