Secret Agent Man…

Hey kids… So, have loved this tune since it was released in 1966. Very hip/edgy and all that… The original tv show was called ‘Danger Man’, when first produced in 1964 in the UK. When it came to the US in 1966, title was changed to ‘Secret Agent Man’… Johnny Rivers had a hit w/ the tune… A lot of Cold War spy tv shows and movies then. This one, ‘the man from UNCLE’, ‘The girl from UNCLE’. James Bond… Etc… But always liked this tune…. Anyway, here is The Magtones version, w/ a lot of help from our friend Mike… He always makes a song better…. Hope you like it…

We Can Almost Hear the Dr DeMento Show…

Hey kids. Been awhile. Outside of the holidays, and some jamming, not a lot going on. Not a bad thing. One thing going on recently, was this collaboration… Our amazing friend, Elizabeth Safely Brinker wrote, sang, and played uke on this. The smooth Martin Hoffman was killer on the Ubass. And, the one, the only Michael August added great harp. I did the rhythm guitar, to finish it up… Hope you like it… Cuz, it’s soooo good…

Katie’s Cup, the sequel

Hi. Welcome to autumn… Been gettin’ chillier around the midwest, the last couple days…..

The Great Facebook Fiasco

HI there, everyone…. So, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all bit the dust for several hours, yesterday-Monday… IMO, they did us a favor, to wean us off, and, to show that we can live without them, and, that there are other alternatives to the Zuckerberg circus… I admit, I did miss Instagram a little, but other than that…. Meh…. Our lives went on. Yard work, errands, music, and projects… My lovely wife baked 2 apple pies, and a crisp, with apples we picked. Oh, even got our flu shots. So, did I miss some of our friends adventures? Yes. But, did not miss the sh1t show that can be Facebook…

Amazing apple pie

Artscene 2021

Hey there, from the midwest… So, we were asked to play some tunes, for Artscene- an event, that showcases local artists. We played for two hours, and it was great fun… My nephew and his wife (Tyson & Patti) stoped by, and not only visited, but documented a few of the tunes… Wanted share the snippets w/ you…

Just wanted to share…

Not to mention interesting and nice people… This year, we signed up/purchased a ‘CSA’ summer salad share… Best produce idea we’ve done in years… Just killer produce. Fresh, flavorful, and beautiful. We’ve eaten like queens and Kings… Plus,meet get to support local farms… A win/win situation…
