Last December they released their new album "12", for which they recorded and released one song each month, concluding in December with the full CD, released at Hi Five in Seattle. I was there for the show and recorded their single "Let's Go" on my phone. Turned out pretty good!
With two their two children in Seattle and the home recording studio where Brett is tracking, mixing and producing other artists, he and Gretyl haven't had a chance to tour for a couple of years but long at last they are hitting the road.
While the tour is a few months away, the prep is underway. Lots to do. Ordering new merch, preparing the 32-foot tour bus, talking to promoters and rehearsing.
Shows are already booked in Tucson, Nashville, Toledo, Chicago, Orillia and North Bay with hopes to add more in Seattle, California, Phoenix, NYC and Philly.
In Central Ontario, you can see them August 13 at "Rock The Lake" in Orillia at the Aqua Theatre. Jimmy Needham is headlining.
It'll be fun to put my Road Manager's hat back on and look after some of the tour details while my wife Janice will be the official Tour Nanny looking after our grandkids while Handsome and Gretyl are performing.

CD release party for "12".
Sounds like a fun way to spend the summer! Not to mention it fulfills the showday withdrawl that I seem to be experiencing!
