Rising From the Ashes

Sun, July 19, 2020 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm / Black Lake, Olympia, WA / View on Google Maps

Hey Friends! We’re hoping and praying we can finally get back to doing live shows again. We’ve been chomping at the bit! It’s been a long hibernation, but one with beautiful silver linings helping us to wish and pray for so much more. When you know what you don’t want, then you definitely know you want..and that has been our focus. So please let us all raise our glasses int he air for a toast to all of us.  Here’s to all bands rising from the ashes. Here’s to crowds of people gathering together to celebrate life, shaking their bodies, vibrating in joy and witness to the ecstasy of aligning and expanding together!

Hopefully by this date in July we’ll have seen a huge drop in coivd-19 cases and a huge recovery. We’d love to celebrate together and make huge space for ceremony and gratitude. This is an invite only house show and we’re keeping it to no more than 50 people, assuming that’ll be the limit. but who knows, maybe by this time we can have more people join us. Anyway, if you’d like to join us, let us know.


Live Stream Show to Benefit Raise for Rowan

Sat, August 22, 2020 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm / Anywhere on planet earth with a wifi connection 🙂

We are thrilled to be playing our first live stream as a fundraiser for Raise for Rowan. Over this 90 minute show we’ll be playing our songs and telling stories, mostly focused on helping all of us to release the grief from our hearts, being tender with ourselves and basking in the beautiful light transmitting down from our loved one’s who’ve passed.

Raise for Rowan was founded by Brynn Johnson after losing her 17 month old daughter Rowan in a tragic accident in 2014. The story Brynn has told about this loss is heartbreaking and tragic. As sometimes happens with terrible misfortune, this painful loss of her child eventually led her to a vision resulting in the formation of her mission, helping other families going through the loss of a child.

Raise for Rowan’s mission is to provide financial assistance to families within our surrounding communities who are struggling with the loss of a child and they have helped so many. We hope that you will join us in support of Brynn, Raise for Rowan and all the families in need of  emotional and financial support during their time of grief.
