Rick Steff plays the keyboard and accordian. If I'm honest, he's the only one I really made eye contact with at their show at the Sitzmark on Saturday. And I reached up on stage at one point and he reached back. That was a special moment for me. Also when I mouthed the words "good one" to him and he nodded back. All of these things make me smile. Thank you Rick!

Adam and Ben had a talk last Thursday night about history, and about using Ben's songs to teach about world wars one and two.

I walk straight up to Ben and get his attention. Obviously going to say something.
Me: I make art.
Me: From those of us, who wear our hearts on our sleeves. I just want to say thank you for doing this.
Ben: I know what you mean. There are some women I know back home who make the most amazing things. I just can't get over it.
We get interrupted and that's that.
But the beauty of it all is, the man who owns Alyeska loves their music at least as much as Adam and I do. So hopefully they will keep coming back.
And if they do, we will be there every time. And it'll be swee-eet!
(P.S. We actually asked them to come play at our wedding back in 2005. Via a message on myspace. Because we're dorks. And fans. And we have a crush on Lucero.)
Here is a video I took, though the sound quality from my phone is just awful:
