When one month is coming to an end and a new month is starting, I like to click on that right arrow on my Google calendar and see what we’ve got going on during that upcoming month. Sometimes that click is not as climactic as I would hope, but most of the time it’s as thrilling as it sounds. Going from April to May of 2018 was one of those “thrilling” clicks.
We’re kicking off the month on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe for two shows that includes a Cinco de Mayo Birthday celebration. We’ve got three nights in a row in one of our favorite college towns, a quick trip to wine country, a beer festival, a Palooza, a hometown hoe-down/show-down/throw-down/Moe’s-down? (“Moe’s-down” is pretty good, right?) and, well I can’t think of anything clever for our May 12th show at the Sweetwater Music Hall with David Luning, but it’s the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley so it speaks for itself. Let’s talk more about that one.
On Saturday May 12th we will be returning to the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley. The first time we played at Sweetwater was in June of 2015 where we got to open for The Dirty Knobs who feature Mike Campbell. I don’t think we need to go into why that was exciting for us. Over the next few years we returned a couple times but most notably in April, 2017 when we were back for two nights in a row opening for another one of our heroes, Jackie Greene during his six night run there. Along with those three shows, we also were recently involved in a tribute show to Glen Campbell that featured, Tim Bluhm. On May 12th we will be sharing the bill with North Bay artist, David Luning. For you Santa Cruz piggies, you may be familiar with David as he is regularly played on KPIG. If you aren’t familiar then you can check him out here. https://www.davidluning.com/

We would be remiss if we didn’t show a little extra love to our show on Friday May 18th at Moe’s Alley. Moe’s has become a special venue for us and we always get a little extra excited to play in Santa Cruz. The Sextones from Reno will be joining us for the night. Grab your tickets and see you at Moe’s Alley on the 18th. http://www.moesalley.com/artist.php?id=2728&artist=THE_COFFIS_BROTHERS_+_The_Sextones
