Farmers' Market Season Approaches

Spring is in the air, and with it the promise of fresh, local produce from a nearby Farmers' Market. We Guinea Pigs love to play the farmer's market circuit. We're already booked for Higganum, Billings Forge, and Bozrah - and looking forward to setting up dates with Coventry, Wethersfield, Manchester, and others.

If you're involved with a local farmer's market (or fair, festival, or downtown civic group) that hosts music - please do contact us at - we'd love to set something up.

CT Marriage Equality Rally

It was an honor to play at the CT Marriage Equality Rally this evening.

We're not really "ready to go" on GLBT anthems (not a lot of Melissa Etheridge, Lady Gaga, or Abba in our set list) but we pulled out the Beatles' tune "The Word"  (....the word is LOVE....) and our standard set closer "(What's So Funny About) Peace, Love, and Understanding" and those seemed to be well received. Steve was not available (or was too smart to drag his drum kit out in the cold!) so it was a "Guinea Pigs Lite" lineup.

Cold evening with a lot of speakers, but a hardy crew stuck it out to the end. Kudos to Chivas Sandage for pulling it all together!

Snowed Out!

The CT Audubon Society in Glastonbury is closed today due to the storm  - no concert tonight!

We'll reschedule with them and let you know the date - in the meantime, we'll be getting ready for another evening at MCC on Main, Friday March 22nd! See you there!
