Upcoming:  

 

No date or place has been set yet, but watch this space for more info about the upcoming (and long-awaited) release of the new CD "Small Towns."Meanwhile, watch the video by Greg Carr, Kansas Skies.

Jim says, "Ok, here's the deal. We don't do as much public performing as we used to. Except for the Little Bear we gave up playing clubs over a decade ago. We still do private events as a band, but we can't invite you to those performances (no matter how well behaved you promise to be). The Events page will now feature Runaway performance announcements and dates significant for celebratory purposes."
