At the Eagles first live show after their reunion, Glen Frey famously said, "For the record, we never broke up we just took a 14 year vacation."

I wanted to let you know that we will be taking a lengthy vacation/hiatus of our own in the weeks/months to come beginning September 2nd (some would even call it retirement!) to get thru upcoming surgeries, heal up, focus on our health and spend more time with our family. 

2023 Update: We are doing well. Renee's surgery last Fall went well and she has fully recovered. She is scheduled for one of her other surgeries at the end of March. We are in the process of moving and have been enjoying our retirement. But we also miss the music! So we will be making a rare appearance for a show here-and-there-now-and-then at some of our favorite venues. Follow us here and on Facebook at
