Re: Long time no see

Yes! Actually, I’m putting together material for a new CD, and that song came into consideration - would you mind? :)

Re: Unlock your dreams with the (Skeleton Key prefight)

I’ve been playing Dueling Pianos shows for the last few years here in New England, and this year I tried (in vain) to pitch a Halloween Dueling Pianos show, calling ourselves The Skeleton Keys. It would have been great! Oh well.

Anyway, I love this title.

Re: Don't get pricked (Porcupine prefight)

Very excited to hear Hostess Mostess again! I was just re-listening to the Between The Rain fight. They had one of my favorite SF tracks ever in that fight.

Maybe I have a song for this? There’s an idea here; we’ll see where it takes me.

As soon as I walked in the room I could feel it Something just wasn't the way it should be And I knew right away I would say I could heal it But making things better just isn't like me There's a crack in the wall and I tried to conceal it But you can still feel it with a brush of your hand And somed...

Re: Songfight Live 2016 Venue Selection

Would love to go to NYC. Would also love to do a NE Regional sometime here in NH, if there's enough interest. I have a couple venues that would be willing to have us, and we could take a day trip to Funspot and stuff.
