Howdy Friends,

As the summer fades into autumn, Pokey and the band only have a small handful of festival shows left this year — one of those dates is the Minnesota State Fair. If you’re one of the lucky folks who can make it to the MN State Fair, the band plays at 3:30pm and 4:45pm both tomorrow & Thursday at the Leinie Lodge Bandshell (the performances are free once you’ve paid admission for the fair).

Speaking of free shows, the band will also be playing another free show in beautiful Muncie, IN this Friday at the Three Trails Music Series. Get yourself more information here.

There are only 2 more performances on the schedule after that, Black Swamp Arts Festival in Bowling Green, OH on September 10th and Music Tastes Good Festival in Long Beach, CA on September 24th.

Don’t be too disappointed by the sparse fall schedule though – I bet that there will be at least one more show to announce before the year ends.

With so few shows on the schedule, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the band will be heading into the studio this fall, with the hopes of releasing their follow up to ‘Something In The Water’ in 2017 via Rounder Records.

With all of this talk about new music, I almost forgot to mention that our humble gift shop has turned into a proper online store featuring not only CDs and vinyl, but also some new garments (including a design we haven’t been selling on the road).

That’s all for now!
