Hey friends sorry we took a bit of the week off, get over it. we're out in the canyon, too busy hanging out to talk to you all.

But now were back with a brand new California Soul titled Chebela, Chelada (download mp3)
Our good friend Dave Thomas came out to hang and then Ryan C. and KC B. rounded off the group with Steve Preston. Lots of jabber on this one but all in good fun, a bit of a throwback to the old days of late night conversations about anything and everything.
Couple of good tunes in there but you gotta search for'em and Ryan and KC play us a tune that aint so bad either.

So go ahead and check it out. keep pace for the future and just drop a little hint, keep May 30th open, especially all you campers out there. *wink-wink.
