Greetings, friends. As summer finally comes
to a close we can't help but turn our sights to continued sunshine and warm weather...
the Caribbean. Yeeeehah!!!
We've begun booking "Baked in the Sun" Tour 2004.
Our annual tour of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands is scheduled to kick off on
Glen's birthday, January 2. After return visits to St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John
and Tortola (28 shows total), we'll wrap up on January 28just in time to return
to the States to celebrate our 18th year together as a band.
It's also a fine occasion to release a new studio
album, our first since Coral Bay (2001 Pipe Dream Records). More details to come.
Plans for New Year's Eve?
Before heading off to the Caribbean, we'll be playing a string of acoustic and
electric dates, leading up to a final Caribbean warm up show December 31 at
(on the Mountain Road in Stowe, VT). Segments of Coral Bay
were recorded at the Matterhorn, with Mike Gordon, Vassar Clements and Buddy Cage
lending us a hand. No surprise, the Matterhorn has remained
one of our favorite places to play.
As we get closer to New Year's Eve, you'll
want to return to the Jalapeno site for ticket giveaways and information on a very
special grand prize giveaway: we're sending a couple of our fans on an all-expenses-paid
vacation with us during the "Baked in the Sun" Tour 2004! Two lucky people
will be packing to join us on the first leg of our annual Caribbean run,
getting baked in the sun with us on St. John and St. Thomas. You'll enjoy an
after-show party and a limo ride (with the band) that will drop you off at
Logan Intn'l airport in Boston. The trip includes round-trip air fare, hotel
accommodations and car rental. You'll want to check back for details on this very
special trip. Feel free to pass this info on to a friend!
As always, we love to hear
from our fans. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
and say hello!
