Confession: I want to write you a letter.

Right now, we do a lot of our publicity and announcements at Back Room Blues and on our local events page on Facebook but we’d rather be a bit more… personal. We’d like to keep you informed of dances and events so you can plan ahead, get early bird discounts, and maybe take the next day off work.

And so we’re asking, most kindly, if you’ll sign up here for this newsletter. We’ll be sending you a letter when we’ve got a band playing at Back Room (Bushmaster! Solomon Douglass! Clarence Turner!) or are opening registration for a big event. No spam, no bullshit. Sign it up right here!
