A day late, a candle short

We're going to kill two birds with one stone today to make up for previous omissions. That's right, a rare chance to double your fun at the Sanctuary!

We forgot to mention yesterday that local songwriter and funny guy Pat McCurdy has found success writing tunes for those musical greeting cards that are all the rage.  Way to go, Pat. We're pretty sure that's a good gig if you can get it.  (Here's an image from one of the cards. Sorry we can't provide the music, we're guessing you have to pay for that little bonus.)

The other thing we forgot to mention was the impressive list of  birthday honorees for June 20. This group is so awesome we thought it was worth spinning by you a day late.  So without further adieu, our first Belated Birthday Band. Now go ahead and dance the night away...
