A few years back I released a couple volumes of stuff I had recorded, but never put on an album.  People have been asking lately, so I've made them both available for free right here on my website.  There's all kinds of fun stuff on these: live, solo, Hubbards, Hair Heads, and Humadors.  I've enjoyed listening to them again - I hope you do too!  Oh, and please be aware there is quite a bit of bad language on both of these.  Sorry!  Click on the pics to check em out!

It's always a pleasure to open for the great Martin Sexton.  Come check us out in Cleveland on Feb 19th or Milwaukee on Feb 22nd!  Tickets now available at the shows tab.
