Final Three Shows for the band: The 3 of Us

These folks sing, "A Nation of Burgers and Fries." They have a few recorded CDs and are a PA band. Figures that one is going to move out of state. Bitter ending.

Their one tune was on my campaign CD. They play folk -- and make great music with a mix of voices. Grassroots and great.
We hope that you'll be able to join 'The 3 of Us' as we finish another chapter in our musical journeys. Jeff will be moving out of state at the end of August, and we have decided to retire "The 3 of Us"; but take with many fond memories from the last decade +. We have dedicated nearly 1/3 of our lives to meeting great people and hopefully spreading some good music and goodwill along the way. We have, appropriately enough, 3 more appearances where you can catch us in the next week:

Sunday, August 14th - The Wolf's Den Restaurant Patio - Knox, PA - 4:00 - 7:00 - 814-797-1105 - - This is an Open Mic, so if you're one of the marvelous musicians that we've met along our journeys we encourage you to bring your instruments and help us entertain.

Friday, August 19th - The Franklin Club Car Cruise - Franklin, PA - 8:00 - 11:00 PM

Sunday, August 21st (OUR FINAL SHOW!!!) - The Wolf's Den Restaurant Patio - Knox, PA - 4:00 - 7:00 - 814-797-1105 -

We hope that you'll make room on your schedule to come out and say hi. As a special parting gift, we're offering all 'The 3 of Us' merchandise for only $5!!!!! Better in your hands than gathering dust in our garages, so if you've been hoping to pick up a copy of Allegheny Hideaway or Sketches, this is a great opportunity.

Just some fun facts about the year we were formed:

Bill Clinton was less than 1/2 way through his first term;

The top grossing movie of 1994: Forrest Gump;

Top Pop / Rock Single of 1994: Ace of Base - The Sign (boy, we bucked that trend);

In 1994 Gas cost $1.09 / gallon;

Top news stories of 1994: The "Republican Revolution"; O.J. Simpson; The Major League Baseball Strike cancels the World Series; Susan Smith; Tonya Harding & Nancy Kerrigan; South African elections; John & Lorena Bobbit; and the death of Jackie O'.

What a long strange trip it's been. Hope to see you this week.

Jerry, Jeff, & Jenny

It is hard to say if I'll catch one of the final shows. But, I'll try. And, you should too if you can. I'm sure sad that they're going to split.

Reunion tours can be fun too!
