Elks lodge Luau

Thanks to everybody that came to the luau last night, we (the thrift store poets) had a wonderful time. I heard it said that if you want to be a better musician, then you must surround yourself with better musicians, and that is exactly what I have done. Jeff Little​, Curtis Baker​, Franklin Ledgerwood​ and John Fox​ you guys kicked ass last night. My voice was weak from fighting chest congestion, and Curtis was fighting off some sort of stomach bug himself, and yet you guys sucked it up, covered my ass and pulled it off! Also, a big thanks to Harry Hoggard for giving the band a great light setup and making the dance floor come to life. And of course a big thanks to Frankie Cearley​ and all the Cushing Elks lodge members for inviting us to your wonderful event. We know you had several  bands and musicians to choose from, and we are honored that you chose the poets to share your evening.

Thanks for great year so far!!

Thanks to everyone that came an listened to us at Saturday’s wine festival, we had a great time. This has been a great year for us as we have added two great musicians to our lineup, Jeff Little and Curtis Baker, began our newest recording project, purchased new computer based studio gear, and have been busier with bookings than we have in quite some time. The bottom line is we love to share our music, and when we get so much positive feedback from our audience as we have had this year, it makes it that much more enjoyable for us. Also, thanks to everyone that has been so gracious to book us. We have made new friends, and tasted some of the best food and beverage Oklahoma has to offer. Each and every one of our hosts has been wonderful to us, and we can’t thank you guys enough. Our next scheduled event is August 15th at the Cushing Elks lodge annual luau, and we are going to be busy tweaking our set list for this one. There will be great food, drinks, live music and much dancing. You will want to purchase your tickets early for this one. Contact the Cushing Elks lodge for more info. Again, thanks so much for a great year so far!!!!

Get Back to Work!

Life is a compromise, is it not? I would venture to say that none of us would devote eight to twelve hours a day in pursuit of the almighty dollar if it wasn’t necessary for survival. Unfortunately, the world we live in revolves around profit, and unfortunately, profit is God. The question is do we allow ourselves to be defined by a society that values profit above all else? And if not, how do we live an authentic life? How do we draw the line? I realize it’s much easier to just give in and say the hell with it, and by doing so become what we detest the most, but that’s probably not the best choice. And to be honest, I’m not sure I understand the questions, much less have any real answers. But one things for certain, I kept your attention long enough to read this post, and that’s kinda cool! Now enough of this feel good, liberal, hippie dippy bullshit! Get your ass back to work! Your boss needs a new Porsche!

Styx queen of spades

I've loved Styx since I was a little kid. I saved my chore money to buy this album. I was rocking out on my little turntable. Love this song
