Coventry Regional Farmers Market

We had a wonderful time at the Coventry Regional Farmers Market, playing for 3 hours to a very appreciative crowd. It was great to see old friends and make some new ones; the market has a great vibe, amazing vendors, and a surplus of cute dogs and adorable children.


A brief shower slowed us down a little, but after breaking down our sound system, the sun came back out and we decided to soldier on with just an amplifier. We finished out the day with a stripped down (but very fun) mini-set.

Thanks to everyone who came out - look forward to playing this great market again. See you at the next one!

We played a two hour lunchtime concert in downtown New Britain yesterday; much to our surprise, we found our smiling faces on the front page of the New Britain Herald this morning!
