Reconnaissance Fly's Joshua Tree weekend

Hello everyone.
Please alert all your Southern California associates that Reconnaissance Fly is about to embark on its Joshua Tree tour.  (I can't resist calling it that, even though there are only 2 shows, so maybe it doesn't count as a "tour" -- but certainly a weekend.)

First up, on Saturday night October 18th, we will be playing at the Palms Restaurant, up last after the Sibleys and Hay Fever.
83131 Amboy Road
Twentynine Palms, CA  92277
The show starts at 8 pm.

The following evening, we and Hay Fever will be featured in the Radio Free Joshua Tree Listening Lounge.
597 29 Palms Way
Joshua Tree, CA  92252
The band order is:
5:00 pm - Bob Derwood Andrews 
6:00 pm - Hay Fever
7:00 pm - Reconnaissance Fly

You can also hear the show live on the interwebs, at:
so don't worry if you are not in the area.  You won't miss out.

New Reconnaissance Fly videos now posted

I had a great time performing live with Reconnaissance Fly in the KFJC Pit on August 24th.  Here are our four favorite videos from that set:



This is a brand new instrumental tune by Tim Walters.



You might remember this one from Not Made of Stone by Polly Moller & Company, but it's different now!



This is a brand new piece by Amanda Chaudhary.



And here is An Empty Rectangle, a tune from our album Flower Futures.
