This is actually old news by now but we were unable to keep the Second Sunday at Shirley's going after the first show because of performing rights complications. Even little venues have to pay the piper these days. All the best to Shirley and her family. Hope to see them for some BBQ in the near future.
Billy Proulx & Tommy Too set to release new Single
After an excellent restart at Mt Baldy Lodge in late June and early July the attack of the Virus once again knocked Billy and Tommy off the live performance trail. But the music didn't stop. They have been in the studio throughout the pandemic and its beginning to bare fruit. A release of a single is being scheduled as we speak and that single "We Got It Made"is from an Album due out this fall called " Whatta Ya Gonna Do?".
Most of the songs on the LP are Billy and Tommy live in the studio, one take stuff, but there are few songs that cried out for accompaniment so Billy called on old friends Olises Naranjo and Bugsy King for a little support. It will be essentially an Americana LP but with a slight pop twist.
"We Got It Made" is due out before the end of August and is a good introductory that reveals the pop side of the coming album.
And this is only the beginning! There is much more to come. Not only have Tommy and Billy recorded more they need for the LP but rumor has it the The Crew is currently digging into their plentiful vault and is planning to have a release by the end of the year.
Things are crazy out there but keep the faith. There is still music to smooth the soul.
Last Saturday afternoon Billy Proulx & Tommy Too played The Mt Baldy Lodge . People were very happy to hear live music again. We also just got word that Pacific Wine Merchants will be having music again, so our July 18th, September 25th and November 14th dates there are good. Hopefully things will slowly and safely get going .--June 10th, 2020

Last Saturday afternoon Billy Proulx & Tommy Too played the Mt Baldy Lodge. People were social distancing and many wore masks but it was obvious that people were very happy to hear live music again. We just got word from the Pacific Wine Merchants that our July, September and November dates are on for sure. Hope things will slowly begin to safely open up again. See you soon.
