Hey funkonauts! We’ve been taking a break from writing new songs every now and again to edit some video from past shows and posting the results on our YouTube channel. Below is the result – a cover of Sly & The Family Stone’s classic “Sing A Simple Song” with a shout-out at the end to Maine’s own Rustic Overtones as well. This weekend we’ll be heading back into the woodshed to work on some more new music for y’all – some of which will wind up on our debut album. If you’d like to be part of the recording process, then go ahead and pledge to help fund our project to receive updates and other exclusives. Thanks for all the support!
Lots happening this Saturday, so let’s get right down to business. First things first – you need to get yourself out to Naples for Saturday night with Mama’s Boomshack in the Bray’s Brew Pub biergarten. Lots of great craft beers on tap, great food, and a great atmosphere outdoors on a summer night. What more could you ask for? How about some comedy? Sometime after 6pm, there’ll be comedy in the biergarten with three local comics doing their thing. When the laughs stop, sit back and enjoy a pint and get ready to party with us from 9pm through ’til midnight.
Now here’s where we’d normally sign off with a clever phrase or six, but let’s pimp a good cause before riding off into the sunset. If you’re in the Brunswick area Saturday afternoon, there’s a great concert happening over at Thomas Point Beach featuring tons of great local musicians – Anderson Council, Max After, Pete Miller Band, Pete Kilpatrick Band, Grand Hotel, Sly Chi, and Rustic Overtones. Gates open at 10 am, show runs from noon to 6 pm – it’s only 15 bucks to get in (kids under 12 and adults over 80 get in free) and all proceeds benefit the American Red Cross.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering… yes, you can get there from here and it only takes a bit over an hour – plenty of time to watch Rustic finish up there set and hustle on over to finish the night at Bray’s. Just sayin’…
