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.

Reconnaissance Fly on the airwaves and on the stage

Hello everyone.

We are outside the recommended cheese and we have a very busy weekend coming up.

First, we'll be performing live on KFJC 89.7 FM between 2 pm and 6 pm this coming Friday August 22nd.  We will be the special guests of host Grawer, visible on the KFJC HD Live Cam and audible on the live stream at http://www.kfjc.org.

This will be to get everyone in the mood for our show this coming Sunday afternoon at 4:30 pm at Bird & Beckett Books and Records, 653 Chenery Street, San Francisco.  It's very convenient to the Glen Park BART Station and there's no cover, just a $10 suggested donation.

We have the place all to ourselves for 2 hours so we'll be playing all the tunes we know, and some we don't!  Hope to have your ears one way or the other, on the radio or amongst the books at Bird & Beckett.
