Wish I could there to hear y'all play, but I'm back at work in the Middle East on Labor Day. That's a great bill, Tom; y'all are taking the stage with some good local acts.

Thanks for the comments fellas - this festival is in Bedford, Texas (a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas) - I go almost every year and have seen some great headline acts over the years (Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, Delbert McClinton, Little Feat, just to name a few) but never imagined I would be lucky enough to play there. The local opener acts are usually very top notch as well so we really feel honored to have been chosen to be a part of it all this year. Should be a real hoot and we are all really looking forward to it.

I have one CBG that I might try to play a little slide on for a song or two. We are still working out the set list so it will depend on that mostly. I'll keep you posted!
