Been thinking about the program you gave us at the Englewood United Meth. women’s cookie luncheon !  We had such a great time !  Thanks so much for all the energy you brought to our group!  Pam, Pres. EUMW

“We have been coming to Englewood for thirty years and I don’t think I’ve been to this place for ten years.    The food was always okay but a bit pricey.    Now they have added the downstairs (I’m leaving the name out). So we decided to give it another shot.    They have decorated the area with festivals cute signes.   The night we went they had a band called Funky Munky or something like that and we’re BIG fans………”.  They preceeded to trash the restaurant but you got the point!

Pete

Heard you guys jam @thenaughtymonk, such a great dynamic, classic/surprising set list, and good vibes. Please make your way up to St. Petersburg, and drop me a line when you do, would love to listen to y’all again. 

Cheers

Marie and Ed

Hey Joe ….Ed and I had such a great time hanging out with you at the Daiquiri Deck in Venice on Sunday.  Fun afternoon!  Hope to catch you guys again this summer.
