Summer is pretty much in the rear view but we have some exciting dates coming up in the fall. One in particular we really want to mention is a show at one of our favorite places to play, Otus Supply, in Ferndale, MI. This will be our eighth or ninth appearance there but in this instance we will be the opening act for an incredible headliner, fusion pioneers, the legendary Brand X. They've had a couple lineup changes in the last year, but new members Ric Fierabracci (bass) and Greyson Nekrutman (drums) are superb players, undoubtedly capable of handling some of the idioms most challenging music. Original guitarist, John Goodsall, remains as does long time keyboard player, Chris Clark.
Meanwhile, the Dudes will be using the time leading up to our next batch of gigs to work on an idea we've been kicking around for some time: a Steely Dan medley. No elaborating just now as to what that's about, and not even promising it will be ready to roll by mid-October, but it's in the works and will be way cool when finished.
Sure was great to see so many folks during the summer months. Gonna keep fingers crossed that we're able to play the rest of our 2021 schedule what with things getting a bit dicey once again. Stay safe, all.
