Too much snow, we're outta here!

 

Well all that snow has been great for the environment but it's a lot for this California girl so we're headed off next week to the City of Brotherly Love, Old Philadelphia to play Andrea Clearfield's Salon. Known as the oldest and best salon in the country, it's one of our favorite little gigs and if you don't know Andrea Clearfield, https://bit.ly/2HwOMR3 here's a great little article on her. And then! Off to the beach for a week...rest, relaxation and a chance to work on those new songs we've been writing. 

San Miguel and Day of the Dead

 

What an epic adventure! I was invited to create a promotional video for Eat the Peach Travel Tours, Tom and Sharon,  for their Day of the Dead tour in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico last November. After playing the annual Halloween party at the Adobe Bar, Dan and I drove straight to the airport, three hours away, for a 6 am flight. So Rock n Roll. ay..yai ay...So with Dan as my soundman we headed off for adventure, fun and music! We had originally met Tom and Sharon playing a show so they booked us a gig at the 007 Bond Bar, a rooftop bar in San Miguel, which was pretty dang cool. Especially loved singing our original song we wrote in Spanish with our American accents ;-) well....not too badly American. But we loved San Miguel de Allende! Full of  gracious people,  beautiful colors,  culture, the architecture, what a town! So check out www.eatthepeachtravel.com and the video I made below. A special thanks to fellow musician and video editor, Martin Rowell,  whom I got to sit next to editing this video for about 36 hours. Could not have done it without him.

And you might want to check out their next adventure. Fantastic experience of a lifetime! But see it for yourself.....

Fun on a movie set

 

Two years ago, we were scouted by Running Wolf casting to be the band on the movie, Ideal Home, starring Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan. Filmed at the Pink Adobe Bar in Santa Fe, we probably did the scene around 15 times. Paul and Steve tangoing in front of us over and over. Great people on the set, fun times. The movie went to Cannes Film festival and then we never heard of it again. But, lo and beyond, the key costumer, Jane Day, sent me a text with this photo on it. And sure enough, it opened on June 29th nation wide and we're in the part of the moment. Brief as our scenes are, really only seconds, it was fun to see ourselves up on that big screen. It's a funny, sharp, loving homage to Santa Fe about a couple, Paul and Steve, who end up with a long, lost grand kid and have to find their way through their own narcissistic, indulgent life style to a new way of viewing life. Go see it if it plays in your neighborhood or rent on Amazon.com and you'll catch us at the end, brief but there!

Good times on the East Coast

 

If you've never been to the East Coast in spring, put it on your bucket list. Central Park in full bloom is a site to behold as are the streets of Philadelphia! In between shows, we  fit in some great visiting at the Met, Wave Hill in NY.  Old City, Independence Hall in Philly and walked about 12 miles a day in both places. We had a wonderful evening performing at Andrea Clearfield's 31 year old Salon in Philadelphia. What a great experience she has created for both the audience and us performer's. I think we've become ambassadors of New Mexico because so many guests came up afterwards and told us how they wanted to come visit New Mexico now! We made some wonderful new friends and picked up an amazing opportunity of which more will be revealed in the future. And we look forward to performing there again in March of 2019!  But meanwhile we're back in our beautiful home of Taos, which is also in full bloom and also a sight to behold! Four shows here in Taos this month so come see us at one of more! And keep checking back as I'm always adding gigs. Hope to see you out there soon!

Welcome to the new website!

 

Finally! We loved that old website, but our web designer went AWOL and it was all her own code sooo... here 's the new one created by myself and my web and conceptual business design partner, Barbara Davis (who totally rocks  the techie side!)  and btw, our business is The Taos Pixel Dust Sisters.  

I'll be adding more show dates and more info so check back occasionally. We've taken off for a few months to finish mixing the cd, get the new website done and all that entails. We'll be doing a kickstarter soon to raise funds to manufacture and print the cd.  Daniel and I will be heading to Philadephiia next month to play the oldest Salon in the country. And then we'll be back in Taos for two shows in May...kicking off into summer! So good to be back online here and playing music! Looking forward to seeing you all out there!  Please sign up for our email list, even if you did before. Our list went MIA along with the website. Thanks for visiting!  Carol
