JBE 2012, local ride July 15 !

on June 7, 2012 - 8:56am

The majority of our efforts this year are to support our 2013 trip down the Mississippi, but we're inviting you here and now to our one and only local ride of 2012! Please gather your friends and join us Sunday July 15th for a 2pm concert at the Chelsea District Library, followed by a 3pm  group ride from the Library to the Wolverine State Brewery in Ann Arbor, where we will perform again at 5pm. The ride is 15 miles in length and will travel at a very leisurely pace, allowing anyone to comfortably join in.

Beautiful finish, beautiful day!

I've just awoken, and am beginning to wade through all the many feelings summoned by the events of the last two weeks. Yesterday was strong affirmation that the heart of our project is strong, and means different things to different people. When I first began to envision this, even some of my best friends looked at me with tilted heads, and bemused expressions; what are you doing, why, and how? Like all individuals, our project is unique, and can be appreciated and used to different ends at different times.

Our last day!

We have been receiving such a great welcome in Detroit. The warmth and strength of Detroiters is a beautiful thing to behold, we're so very happy to be here with you. Yesterday we played a nice midday gig at the Scarab Club, raising funds for the Tiny Scarabs. Yesterdays gig was a perfect example of why we conduct our early season fundraisers for ourselves. We played gratis at the Scarab Club, and were pleased to be able to do so thanks to the support of our friends and fans, who make our project go.

Rollin' into the 313!

Well, we've made it, 350 miles across the state, arriving in Detroit around 5:30 PM yesterday. We were followed by channel 7's Stephen Clark, who interviewed us, taped us playing a tune or two, and put cameras on our bikes as we rolled out of Livonia towards Grand River on 6 mile Rd. The urban ride is fascinating, seeing things at a pace you don't feel in a car, slowly watching the center of the city bloom before your eyes.
