One year & counting...our blog's first anniversary!

It was one-year ago today Jan Hoiberg of the official The Band website recommended we produce a blog so that he could link our spring'08 Woodstock, NY trip photos on his website. So we have him to blame for an amazing experience over the past year. We have met so many great folks, both virtually & in person, thanks to creating this blog. The blog is primarily based on our love for The Band & Bob Dylan, but those artists branch out to so many other artists & events. We continue to remain loyal to those artists & fortunately have become aware of so many more.

Here's to the next year & many more! Please keep your input coming.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to the following who have supported us in ways too large to count:
