Pirate's Log - Summer 2006

Thanks to all who voted for our big win in the Roanoker Magazine’s “Best Of” readers’ poll!  This year we got the Platinum Award, first place, in the category of “Best Band”.  For the first time ever, we took a second place collectively in the “Best Musician” category.  First place went to Maestro David Wiley, conductor of the Roanoke Symphony, so we didn’t feel too bad about our second place position.

Now that the calendar is all but full, work on the CD is progressing very slowly, but we are making progress.  Michael recently had an exchange with Mac McAnally of Jimmy’s Coral Reefer band and he has expressed an interest in appearing on our new CD.  It seems that our friend, Doyle Grisham has been saying good things about Key West during the first leg of the Buffett tour and his band mates are listening.

Speaking of Doyle, we’re talking about future dates with him following, or even in between legs of the Buffett tour.  We plan to visit with him in person at the Charlotte show, but meanwhile, we’re on the phone and on the internet with him, making plans and exchanging tracks for the new Key West CD.

There’s a lot coming up this summer – Enjoy the nice weather-we hope to see you out!
