From Washington (D.C.) to Washington (Pa.)

What a show! It was a pleasure getting this year’s tour underway last night by performing for an extremely enthusiastic audience in an absolutely packed house. I even saw a few concertgoers standing in the back (don’t tell the fire marshal)! As performers, nothing is better than playing for an audience so appreciative of our efforts that they are willing to stand to hear us.

Trinity High School’s picturesque campus is situated on a hilltop overlooking Washington, Pa., and contains a great performance arts space. Listen... I don't mean "great for a high school"; this hall was absolutely fantastic. It is also designated a historic public landmark by Washington County, as the school is a former all-boys military academy that had a close association with the 18th president of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant.

Tonight, we perform at Youngtown’s Stambaugh Auditorium, another great (and really huge!) hall. Come one, come all!
