We have finally released our newest CD, "Prepare Ye the Way of The Lord,"
Cece and I love to lead worship and led worship at "The Overflowing Cup" Coffeehouse in Beloit WI for 4 years. We did a mixture of old hymns, praise songs from the 80's, some of our original worship songs, and a few newer hymns and praise songs. I like the praise songs from the 80's because there is so much scripture in them. This CD will have 5 of our songs that we sung at Overflowing Cup that were scripture put to music. One of my favorites is "A New Song" from Rev 5:8-14.
Dan Lietha is the one who did the cover art for our newest CD. Dan is the Resident cartoonist for the Creation museum. He did a caricature of us when we were at an event for the Ark encounter, a full sized Noah's ark that is being built near Cincinnati OH by the Creation museum. It is scheduled to open July 7th 2016. The caricature on the back of the CD was done by an artist many years ago at an amusement park. (You can tell it was a few years ago because I have hair.)
Here are a few of Dan’s cartoons:

Every winter / spring the Kentucky Opry in Draffenville Ky has a talent contest for all ages. We have enjoyed being in it, not so much with a desire for winning (we usually don’t) but just for an excuse to get on stage, sing God’s praises and have a good time. They prefer you to do covers and say that they won’t learn any originals (I don’t blame them) but I’ve discovered that if you do a simple blues they will accompany you. They are an excellent band and really a lot of fun to play with!

As I mentioned on our 2015 page we took a trip to Israel from Dec 1st to Dec 10th 2015. It was a 15 hour flight flying back from Israel to NY and a 2 hour flight from NY to Chicago. I must have caught something on the flight back because the next night I had a sore throat, then got sicker, and for awhile I couldn't even talk, so we haven't been playing anywhere since we returned. I am writing this 1/24/16 and I finally feel like I might be able to sing again soon. Halluliah!!!!!!!
