Sam’s BBQ Farewell – May 27
After four amazing years, we’ll be playing our final fourth Tuesday show at Sam’s BBQ on May 27. Last month was our four-year anniversary at Sam’s, and it’s really been a blast and an honor to play there every month. Sam took a chance on us four years ago when we were first getting started, and we really appreciate what the opportunity has done for us.
When Windy Hill started our residency at Sam’s in April 2010, we were a three-piece bluegrass band and had just restarted the band in California after moving home from Colorado. Needless to say, a lot’s changed since then. It was not an easy decision, and we’ll surely miss the great BBQ and people every fourth Tuesday.
We hope you’ll join us for our last fourth Tuesday on May 27. Let’s make it a good one!
