2012: A High Speed Year

Awful lot of great music this year.  Eric Ambel produced records from Spanking Charlene, Maynard & The Musties, Planetary Nights, The Ghost Wolves and D.L. Marble all got released this year.  The new Del-Lords record titled “Elvis Club” and “White Buffalo” by Jimbo Mathus & The Tri-State Coalition are just a couple on deck for release early in 2013.

Had a great time  playing gigs this year with the Desberardos, Mark McKay and Spanking Charlene. Highlight had to be the great tour of Iraq with Mary Lee’s Corvette.

Also almost ready for 2013 are the new Los Dudes record, an album by Karen Hudson the follow up to “The Owl Has Landed” from Esquela and a wild one from Chris Berardo & the DesBerardos.  Gigs with the Desberardos, Mark McKay and the great tour of Iraq with Mary Lee’s Corvette.

Thanks to all the friends, bands and staff who supported the Lakeside Lounge (’96-2012). I miss you all more than I can say.
