We are so very excited to be playing two very important shows in December.  Growing up in Skagit Valley, what better tribute for us to play at The Lincoln Theater in downtown Mt.

Many Alumni and musicians will be in attendance, you should too!

As if it couldnt get any better, then we are off to Eastern Washington to the beautiful and snowy wonderland of Winthrop.  We are completely stoked to be playing New Years Eve at the SUN MOUNTAIN LODGE.  This ski resort, world class restaurant and outdoor adventure center has something for everyone!  Get more info now at

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season! Peace and Love to all.


Farewell to A Friend - November 22, 2011

It is with heavy hearts that we note the passing of local music legend Mark Hibbert. A generous, loving and talented man, Mark produced Brooke's first CD at his Whiskey Ridge Studio, and had a huge impact on Brooke and her music.  Mark also played in many different bands, and often graced the stage at Eddies Trackside.  We will truly miss this wonderful man, and our hearts go out to his family, bandmates and many, many friends.


Here's to good travels throughout the universe, and lots of great jam sessions.  We love you Mark.
