Much progress is being made on my new cd/songbook

Next week we are bringing in Phil Hwkins for percussion and steel pan and Marc van Wagenigen on bass for the newest song, "Brothers, Sisters" a lively calypso Hugo wrote and played for me during a break in one of the recording sessions.

Other other news..... QUOTE FROM A SATISFIED CUSTOMER "Cathi Walkup played for my 60th birthday party held at Irish Monkey Cellars. The group was great to dance to as well as being background music. They played a variety of music pleasing the tapestry of people at my party. I am looking forward to checking out one of their concerts. I would highly recommend them for any event that needs a band for either dancing or entertainment. Thank you Cathi, and all for making my party a night to remember - my goal was to dance the night away - which is exactly what I did." Lynn
