My wife and I heard you for the first time at Oktoberfest this evening and we thoroughly enjoyed your music as it is/was "our generation." I am a native Hoosier (Greenwood) and recently moved back to Indiana from Portland, Maine, after being gone for 7 years. Your music/band adds one more reason for moving back home in Indiana...
