HOME                                  where barn dance meets trance                 

Our first recording is in the works. No folks, it ain't vinyl and it ain't 8 track! It is a real live compact disc style thingy with maybe 12 songs and tunes and if y'er good there will be a bonus track or two.

We're calling it  BarnTrance. So grab y'er partners and y'er yoga mats 'cause we'll be trancing ya out at our release concert on June 2, 2012 at Sharon Temple
