Spring break!! f;laskdjf aeouaerlkejgal!!!!!!!

I'm officially on Spring Break!!!!

Pretty stoked about that...except for the fact that my body decided this would be a great time to be sick.  UGH!!!  My to-do list for break seems longer and longer with each cough :-(

The show must go on though.  I currently should be jamming with my friends from The Big Adventure, but I'm taking this time to rest and down as much tea and honey as I can handle in the hopes I can chime in on my harmony parts tonight.  If you're not afraid of the plague and want to see this, I hope to see you there!!

...sorry, I had issues finding it via Blogger.  Bad Blogger!!!

On to this week!!  Pretty stoked to be playing with my sweetheart, my future father in law, and all the other incredibly talented musicians of The Minnesota Bluegrass Band!  We'll be at Whiskey Junction - GREAT parking, INCREDIBLE soup.....geez, I need soup NOW!  FREE SHOW, we play 9-12ish....I love Spring Break!!

The Minnesota Bluegrass Band at Whiskey Junction 

901 Cedar Ave  Minneapolis, MN 55404

Music 9-12, FREE SHOW!!!

Besides tonight and Wednesday, that's all I have.  Spring break indeed!!!!  Of course, I'm down for any surprise shows that may come my way but if not, make sure you come out one of these nights, it'd be great to see you and not need to run home to sleep :-)

And we're back!!!!

It feels so good to be back with my sister and brothers of i like you.  After a month off, we came back together for our first ever show at the Bryant Lake Bowl.  It was fun and a bit challenging to have a theater show for our first show back, but it was so great to get out in front of an audience.  Friday we hit the road towards Wakefield, Michigan and the Mountaintop Music Festival.  The roads were AWFUL on the way up so car #2 (which I was in) didn't make it up there until the last 3 songs of Useful Jenkins set.  I would have loved to have caught more, but thanks to my first 5 hour energy drink (hahaha!  Thanks Joe and Mo!), I grabbed my fiddle for a late night jam with the guys from Horseshoes and Hand Grenades.  Stevens Point represent!!!!!!!

On Saturday morning, we hit the slopes!  I had never been snowboarding, but with free rentals and free lift passes for performers, I just had to give it a try!  Arthur and his lady were fantastic teachers!!  I loved it!  Who knew I could (very slowly, only riding the back edge) shred!  Definitely used muscles I've never used before, so I'm a little sore!  We played at the bottom of the hill and while we did have access via road, but the end of the day, I actually would have considered boarding down the hill with my violin - in its case of course!!  Well...I have a very hard case, so falling may have been extremely painful.  Glad I didn't make that life choice.  Our show was fun!  Lots of skiers and snowboarders partying down at the saloon, some remembered us from last year when we played on the patio due to the extremely warm weather.  Again, VERY good to be back :-)

Upcoming events for the week of March 18th!!!!!!

I'm very excited to be joining The Burbillies for their set of bluegrass style butt-rock.  I had to look that up...and yes, that actually is a genre!  Lots of familiar covers, some familiar faces, and a whole bunch of silliness.  These guys are a bunch of fun - you should come out!  I'm already planning my costume...yes costume.  The show is at Cause Spirits and Sound Bar in Uptown and the ridiculousness starts happening at 9pm.....FREE SHOW!!!

On Friday 3/22, i like you. will be playing tunes while you sip tap beer from local brewery and awesome music scene supporters Harriet Brewing.  If you haven't seen this space, you're missing out!  Couches as well as tables offer you a spot to enjoy the fruits of the brewmaster's labor while surrounded by colorful art and are serenaded by music most days of the week.  Come early, seating is limited - food truck will be Potter's Pasties (yum!).  Music at 8, cover is $5 but oh so worth it!!

Coming up next week....Spring Break staycation for Srta. Krueger
3/27 - Minnesota Bluegrass Band at Whiskey Junction
and perhaps some more...TBA!!

4 times is the charm!

Well, this isn't going so well is it?  In the past year I've posted in my blog 4 times.  FOUR


Let's do better now, shall we?

After much debate trying to figure out what my blog should be about I think I decided.  Just in case you're interested, here's a look at the failed ideas:

First time home owner and all the shenanigans
Just about life (zzzzzzzzz)
Tips for pinching pennies


OK, a lot of people ask "when are you playing?  WHERE are you playing!?!  If I had known, I would have BEEN there!!!"  How about a blog that lists my gigs and whatnot??!!?!?  What do you think?!?!  Now I have no excuses - THE BLOG will be a great place to go find this information regardless if you're on facebook, twitter, email, whatever.  I think you can even subscribe and it may tell you when this is updated.  Who knows!

And so, without further ado, I give you "The List."

7pm Thursday and Friday and 2pm Sunday
Out on a Limb Presents:

I'm so excited to share this with everyone! I am playing The Candyman AND Sluggworth.  I'm pretty stoked - I even get a tap solo!!  I LOVE tapping and all types of dance.  Out on a Limb is such a cool organization and I am so lucky to be a part of it.  Check out more about them at:

My RSI kiddos came today as a field trip.  I don't have the full regalia on, you'll have to come to the show to see what I REALLY look like:
