The Acoustic Dream of Doom

We're doing acoustic-based songs with electric bass, acoustic guitars, mandolin, lap steel and harmony vocals: Gillian Welch: I Dream a Highway / Billy Bragg and Wilco: California Stars (lyrics by Woody Guthrie) / Many artists: Dream a Little Dream of Me / Hall and Oates: You Make My Dreams Come True / and an original

Siamese Dreamers

Covers from one of the great albums of the 90's.

Jello Sandwich

Imagine you're snuggling a chubby, sleepy little puppy while sitting in front of a roaring fireplace in a warm fuzzy sweater on a cold and snowy night in the dead of winter, sipping a steaming hot cup of hot chocolate with Bailey's with tiny marshmallows gently bobbing on top. So sweet, right? Yeah, that's not us.
