Hi Ate Us

whatwouldwooddoIt’s a good time to count our blessings and consider our options.  After 3,687 days of doing whatever it takes to keep the music playing and moving forward, we suddenly found ourselves sitting in silence considering the meaning, the method, and the message of the our music.  These are deep thoughts, which can’t be rushed out the door or dressed up for the dance.  These things are worth a moment of reflection and can even require some calibration.

At this very moment in time, we are not putting any official gigs on the calendar as the GreenBand.  That doesn’t mean you can have our name or borrow our van for your canoe rental business.  Give us a minute to figure this out and we promise we’ll do “the right thing”.
Lots and Lots,
