Upcoming Events

We've got a few weeks off, but are looking forward to two upcoming gigs:
  1. Higganum Farmers' Market - Friday August 30 / 4 - 7 pm
    This is lovely market, great people and vendors, and we get to play in an adorable gazebo / covered stage area. East of the river, stop by on the way home from work!
  2. Blue Back Square - Sunday September 8, 3 - 5 pm
    New to us and we could not be more excited to play in the heart of West Hartford's entertainment and shopping district. A great opportunity for west of the river friends and fans to come hear the Guinea Pigs!
We are heading in to the peak of farmer's market, county fair, and harvest festival season; if you're involved with any of these and would like to bring the Guinea Pigs to liven up the event, please do contact us!

Wethersfield Farmer's Market

It was touch and go for a few hours, but the rain held off and we had a lovely afternoon playing for the folks at Wethersfield Farmer's Market. Dan broke in his new guitar (and it sounded lovely), Jude brought her new speakers (which will save Dan from lugging the big ones to gigs), and we had a great time.

We were a little nervous when the market master hung the sponsor banner (Farmington Bank) right in front of Jude (although she likes to hide) but we shifted right and it was OK.

And we've decided our target audience is toddlers and middle aged dancing guys. Which is a little weird. But hey, we named our band The Guinea Pigs to weird is right up our alley!

Next up, a more formal concert at MCC on Main, Friday August 8, at 8 pm.
