The Aftermath of Lizapalooza

This weekend our friends Jeff & Liz are getting married in Delaware. We first met Jeff at the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival in Harlingen, Texas, where he was leading field trips. Julie and I were there giving a programs and leading trips, too. Jules was also the featured artist for the festival, something that Liz, then festival chairperson, had arranged. So it was only natural that we'd all hang out together.

What was not so natural is that we had so much fun hanging out that we ended up having giant parties in the adobe cottage where we were being housed. We'd put the kids to sleep, then people would start showing up with guitars, percussion instruments, adult beverages, and the next thing you'd know we'd have 25 or 30 people singing, jamming, and laughing. We crashed at 3 and still got up at 4:30 for our trips!

Then we did the same thing, only bigger, the next night. Live music can have that effect on a party. Liz had so much fun that the party has ever since been referred to as "Lizapalooza."

After that weekend, Jeff and Liz, well, let's just say the rest is history. We're honored to be playing music for the wedding of these two special pals and world-class, incredibly cool people.

Long may you run, amigos!
