NEW Painting NEW gigs MORE fun

First I wanna give a huge thanks to Tony Bianco for the great Root Hog painting! Tony is a relative to our keyboard player Dan Pullins, no artistic slouch himself, and you can see that creativity runs deep in the family. Hopefully we will be using it quite a bit. Clicking through Tony’s gallery it is easy to see that he is quite the artist. Anyone who has ever taken an art class can atest to the realism of some of the fantastic images. To see what I am talking about .
