  1. I was trying to get Steve Grimes and got your website. WOW! Craig what a great site you have–your musical history right here!
    Bill and I will definitely be going on September 1 to hear you all play at Pt. Townsend. Do you know if the tickets are on sale yet?
    God bless you today, Craig. Nancy

  2. Hi Craig
    I am trying to see if I can do the NW Big Band at Fort Worden this year. I can’t find info yet on dates, although I did find an email site for Elmer Ramsey to ask him (Hidden Valley). Sandi says I will play two gigs with you late Nov and December with Stardust. If you have other gigs, I’d love to do them on piano or bone or both. Also my singing is better. Down here in Palm Springs I am playing piano with Dixiecats and Frank Jordan group and bone with the Ted Herman orchestra (he’s pretty well known!) Thanks, Eric LIndstrom

    1. i just spoke with Elmer Ramsey, and he is excited about having you on board. It should be an enjoyable and musically rewarding week for us all. The people who come are wonderful and many are first-class players. i’m so glad you are having an exciting time in Palm Springs, but we can’t wait to have you back up here. i’ll try to sniff out a combo gig or 2 in addition to the big band dates.

  3. Hi Craig! Just so ya know, I bought the ancient CD cuz I used to hear it on WPLR, WHCN and WCCC in Hartford as a high school kid, and I’ve been in radio myself for many centuries now, and I want to play a couple of those Honk classics on my radio show on WWUH 91.3 FM….throwback “hippie” era freeform rock meets the 21st century, and it’s fun! wwuh.org Keep jammin’! –Brian

    1. Thank you for that encouraging word, Brian. So glad you enjoyed (and still remember that record. We had a blast making it. You will be surprise to hear the “bonus cuts.” Actually, it is a second LP we cut for 20th Century which they failed to issue at that time. Hope you like it as well. By the way, did you ever hear the LP HONK cut for Epic Records? I am rather proud of that one, as I think we were all playing, singing, and writing better than ever at that later point. Plus it includes the propulsive bass work of my good friend Will Brady. HONK will be at The Coach House this Saturday, April 2, 2016. We look forward to that reunion concert. Many long-time friends usually turn up at the annual concerts.
