Rivers' Family Meltdown and Chicago-Sun Times!

We played at the River's Family Meltdown last weekend in Massachusetts.
Here's what Jeff Giles from Dadnabbit.com had to say:

The Flannery Brothers, who ended up with the somewhat thankless task of playing “The Lounge Stage” at 3 PM, but turned lemons into lemonade by working the crowd like they were playing Madison Square Garden. Dressed in bright colors and wedged into that tiny space, the Flannery Brothers proved they aren’t just a lot of fun on CD, but they’re an impressively tight live act, delivering note-perfect renditions of tracks like “Rutabaga” and “Best Pillow in the World” that brought an ear-to-ear grin to my tired face and reduced my daughter to giggling fits. (At one point, singer/tambourine rocker Dan Flannery sashayed down the gym mats and into the hall, prompting her to shout “He’s leaving!” in hysterics.) It was, in a word, marvelous, and I only hope the Flannerys end up on the main stage next year, because they’re stars just waiting to be connected with their audience.

Thanks for the great write-up Jeff!

Also, The Chicago Sun-Times picked up a review of "Move Over Lullabies... It's Time for Wake-Up Songs" written by Kimberly over at SheScribes.com. How cool!

In other news, we are working really hard on our next album! They are my favorite songs yet!

Broccoli & Rock n' Roll,
