Hello Hello!

Hi y'all! We've been having a great time playing this year! Recently we shared the stage with the great Vernon Dixon band at Palmer's Bar (2/20/15). Man, that was a blast! See photos from that show taken by the wonderful Cori Miller, in our Photo Gallery!

This past Saturday we played at The Contented Cow in Northfield, Mn. Another stellar night, cut loose, wild and free! We can't wait to get back there again!

We're going to be at The Tavern (Northfield) on Friday, April 17th, and then we're playing the Scoops for Troops Ice Cream Social & Tribute to the Troops, on Sunday, May 3rd in Eagan, MN. This is a great event and we're glad to be part of it! Click here for more info on Scoops for Troops.

We'd love to see you at an upcoming show!

Take care, and talk with you soon!

Thanks for a GREAT YEAR!!

It's been an incredible year for myself and The Nasty Notes. We can't thank you enough for your support. It means the world to us!

We are looking forward to more cool things in the new year, including more shows, new songs, and with a little luck, a brand new record! So please stay in touch, and stay tuned for a fun 2015!

December Update!

Dear Friends,

Just a quick note. We've got a very special night of music coming up on Wednesday, Dec. 17th, at The Aster Cafe. We'll be celebrating the holidays at one our favorite places to play! It's gonna be a super fun night of music, because we'll be sharing the stage with our special guest Bobbi Miller! Bobbi has meant the world to me and our band, and we hope you can share the night with us, as we send her off to the warmth of Arizona.

We'll be playing two sets, starting at 9pm! More info here. Reservations are encouraged, to make sure you get a good seat! Call the Aster at 612-379-3138.

Here's our Facebook invite page.

We hope you can make it out, to help us make it a night to remember!

We're also super excited to be playing on Saturday, Dec. 27th at The Nicollet, in Minneapolis. M It's an early show! And we're sharing the stage with Dan Israel! Dan is a big inspiration to me!

October shows & Update!

Dear Friends,

I hope your summer went well, and fall is off to a good start! We've got a bunch of shows coming up in October and November, that I wanted to make sure you knew about. We'd love to see you at a show!

First of all, we are so happy to playing music with a couple of new band members: Pat Wheeler (guitar) and Dan Carlsen (bass)! They are great guys and great musicians! And I hope you'll get to meet them soon!

So, we've got 3 shows coming up in October:

Thursday, October 2nd at Lee's Liquor Lounge in Minneapolis. We love Lee's! We'll be playing at 9pm, opening up for the awesome Church of Cash (Johnny Cash tribute band)! $5 cover.

Friday, October 17th at Wild Tymes in St. Paul! We're super excited for this show! We've got a great bill line-up, with music starting at 8pm with singer/songwriter Derek Lynch. Our good friend Stacy Lee and her band will be playing at 9pm. And we'll be playing at 10:15pm or so. This is a free show!

Friday, October 31st at The Tavern in Northfield, MN. This is what I'm calling our "Roll & Tumble Halloween Bash!" The Tavern is an intimate venue, so we're gonna strip it down, get out the acoustic guitars, and let it fly! We're sharing the evening's bill with our good friends, the awesome and dynamic band, Swallows! Swallows at 8pm, and we'll play at 10pm. This is a free show, as well!

Keep on rockin', and we'll see you soon!
