Summer is winding down…

But what a glorious one it has been! We played at 5 weddings (with 5 more to go this fall) attended 13 music festivals and performed on stage at 7 of those festivals (8 if you include Wintergrass), and while the majority of our gigs this summer were in Washington state we also managed to make it to 5 other states as well; Hawaii, Montana, Oregon, Massachusetts and Maine. If there were ever a time when Pickled Okra was more at ease as a band, we can't remember it. Todd and Paisley absolutley love traveling and playing music so get ready for a whole new slew of adventures next summer... Let us know if you have any ideas about where we should venture to... We hope you enjoy seeing and hearing us play as much as we enjoy visiting and playing for all of you!
