Where’s Wonderland? Late Sept – Early Nov 2017

Where’s Wonderland, you ask?

After a nice summer tour and some recuperation, we’ve been lucky enough to play with friends and raise money for folks who need it when we can. Had a lovely time playing the Benefit for Harvey Survivors with Guy Forsyth and his amazing crew at Antone’s, felt good to play for HAAM day with Shelley King at Whole Foods. Thanks for being at the shows that bring us all together.

We had a great time at the Blues Bender in Las Vegas!!! So good to hear so many artists and hang out with friends old and new. Intrepid (our awesome booking agency) had a great bunch of bands playing all week! Thanks to Eric McFadden, Anne Harris, Queen Delpine, and Nick Schnebelen for jamming with us!
