Sometimes you just have to wait, you know? We're always on the lookout for great ballads with which we can feature Michelle Lewis' wonderful voice, and for years we've wanted to do the Willie Nelson classic, "Crazy," which, of course, the great Patsy Clin

Channeling 1958

Lately, we've got our Doug Chaffin returning to his roots. Doug's been making music in the Tri-State Area for more than 60 years, starting out in great young rock 'n' roll bands of the 1950s. Over last couple of decades, Doug has played all manner of inst

Peaceful Easy Feeling

Glenn Frey was much on our minds last night as we sat down for our weekly rehearsal. Like everyone, we were stunned and saddened by the death of The Eagles' co-founder. In fact, one of Glenn Frey's first hit singles with The Eagles -- the Jack Tempchin co

The weather kept us from getting together for a practice session last night. That's always disappointing, but here at the podcast, that does afford us an opportunity to check the files for a number from an earlier session. Like this one -- a wistful old t

Happy Solstice!

Well, this is Tuesday, our usual rehearsal night, but last-minute holiday preparations have many our members too busy to pick, so we're taking the night off. But here on the podcast we can still observe the winter solstice with a tune from a session sever

St. James Infirmary Blues

Around here we say whatever two or more gather in its name, it is The 1937 Flood. Well, last night surely tested that proposition. Illnesses and family and work obligations whittled down our numbers considerably. Out of our seven members, heck, we barely

Jammin' with Jacob

One of the things we're thankful for is that often this time of year our old buddy Jacob Scarr comes home for a visit, as he did this year, and last night he sat in with us. Jacob started playing with The Flood nine years ago and was a regular member of t

Warm Room, Hot Band, Cool Tunes...

The room was warm. The band was hot. The tunes were cool. So the evening was just right for a gathering of good friends.
