Hey Friends,

Pickamania-Logo_sm1Gotta ask something of ya’s – We need you to be at Gough Park on Saturday by noon, or 12:15 at the latest!

That’s when the (new) Gypsy Feet Band will take the stage (2nd act of the day) at Silver City’s 7th Annual Pickamania!

We’ve been working with all our hearts on our all-original set, songs written by myself and by Charlie Alfero, and we’re WAY jazzed!

DSC05609In case you haven’t heard us in awhile, we now have a 7-piece band!  Our folk-rock-Americana is filled out with not only guitars and Charlie’s mandolin and Jeff Ray’s bass, but with congas, flute, and fiddle – a tight, rockin’ sound that’s guaranteed to move your dancin’ feet!

So come on out and support your home-town (and regionally-important) folk festival – and us!

See you in the park ~

Let’s all have a great weekend ~  (And pray to send any rain on Saturday and Sunday into the Gila Wilderness.)
