Many of you have been along for the ride, watching me as a loud-mouthed activist, then an elected official with the same volume-control issues (lol) and now reinventing myself yet again as a musician.

Jason and I began this band in 2011, not without a little trepidation and skittishness.  After all, even though we have been playing music with decades of combined experience, it was a little worrisome to step forward with a group of people that are considered long in the tooth by some.  Right now, our youngest member is in his mid-30s, and the frontman's 40s are waning quickly.  As for me, a lady never reveals her age.  :)

We were never supposed to be relevant or cool or "make it."

But combined with your support, a lot of hard work and some venues and festivals that believe that 40-somethings still have something to say, we have been graced by a lot of success.  Good music, socializing and enjoying life to the fullest isn't just for the younger people, and there is life after politics.

This CD release means a lot to us.  It is self-funded, self-produced and self-promoted.  It was recorded by a local Denver recording studio, by a Colorado engineer.  We don't have a record deal, nor do we seek one.  We believe in independently-produced, local music, and we hope you do too.

Please come and celebrate with us.  The CD release party details are as follow:

Sunday, August 24, 2014
Jazz at Jack's, Downtown Denver
Show begins at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $15, which includes a limited-edition copy of the CD that will not be sold anywhere else.  It will only be available to attendees of the event. If you bring a friend, use the coupon code "couples" and get $5 off the total price.  Click here to get your tickets. You could get tickets at the door, but purchasing in advance assures you'll have a CD waiting for you without waiting for the mail.

We sincerely hope to see you on the 24th.  Thanks for all your support since 2011.  And please share/forward this email!

Your friend,

Andrea and Gumbo le Funque
