Wow, we haven’t played a show since the sixth of March 2020. This is a new experience for us, I’ve never had this amount of time off in my life … playing music, well at least since I was 17 years of age,” “I can’t thank you enough for being so patient.
We live in funny times but we’re gonna have a great time.”
