Gosh, thanks, Mike.  We played our hearts out, had several standing  
ovations, sold tons of CD's, had several invitations to other  
festivals and packed our indoor venues.  It's always good to know that  
there are seasoned pros like you out there to pass judgment on working  

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and you're certainly free to  
express yours, but I must say I am truly anxious to hear YOUR  
recordings and your no doubt many festival appearances to hear how a  
real band with "fire in the belly" is supposed to sound.

Thanks again -

(and no doubt responsible for no drive or excitement)
