THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NO. 35
DECEMBER 17, 2021
For the holidays…
Band activities will be slowing down a bit – not completely, but a little bit (very temporarily) – except for the shipping out of orders, the creation of these newsletters and keeping up with the Facebook page and emails. (That never stops). But music-making will be put on the back burner for a few weeks.
The studio will be dark for a little while.
Andy will be in Texas with family during Christmas and will stay through the early part of January.
Bobby will be staying in New York with his family during the holiday.
