8/12 Crescent Spirit. We're so excited and proud of our friends Tav, Syndey, and crew at Florida State Film School for putting together a soon-to-be-released documentary about the love we have for music here in New Orleans. Even the trailer will make you want to get up and dance! (p.s. - check out those floppy ears at 0:34!)


6/12 Laura Jane Ratcliffe. All we can say is we love Laura ~ her voice, her energy, and wonderful sense of humor! In case you missed her performance with us at Jazzfest, you can check her out on YouTube.


5/12 She said YES duringour Jazzfest show! Love and bless~~~!!!



4/12 New Orleans in full bloom. We know spring has sprung when it's April in New Orleans! Between French Quarter fest and Jazzfest, there is something for everyone as visitors and locals alike come out to join in the festivities. This year our 'family reunion' includes MIcheala Harrison, George Blackmon, Kelly Love Jones, Laura Jane Ratcliffe, and Brian J from the Pimps of Joytime. Also, thanks to Jan Oosterhuis for the photos!


3/12 Cheers to Casey! Just when we thought it couldn't get any *magical-er*, along comes Casey from Casey's on Central in downtown Orlando. A lover of music, dogs, and good times, we raise our glasses to you Casey! For those of you passing through downtown Orlando, don't miss the live music and fun at Casey's bar. And ladies, if you are looking for something fabulous to wear, Tanya highly recommends Modern Grace Boutique in College Park!



7/11 Mahalo Hawaii! One love for the beautiful people, land, and sea. We substituted our usual tip baskets for sand pails while busking on Kalakaua Ave. Lots of love to friends old and new, especially the gorgeous and talented Ishle Park and her sweet little pearl, Sulei.

ALSO... check out this book!
Brass bands, magicians, break dancers, statues, puppetteers, astronomers...there is rarely a dull moment in the streets of New Orleans thanks to this lively cast of characters. Jim Flynn's Sidewalk Saints is a collection of local street performers sharing their stories in their own words. We like this book because it gives names to the faces we see everyday and offers a personal glimpse into the rich & diverse street culture that keeps the phrase alive- only in new orleans!

Pick up a copy and look for us on page 102!



We met each other through our friend Zach in New York about 10 years ago. We hit it off right away, and our music has brought us all through the Caribbean, Europe, and the USA. When we're not working, we are often dreaming and scheming about learning new music, recording new albums, and getting better.


Dorise is the reason Casio put a strap on their little keyboard synthesizers so they could be played like guitars. Seriously!

Tanya is always if you see her, please feed her something nutritious and delicious. Her mom will be grateful.
