New vintage instrument - 1928 Ludwig Kingston tenor banjo

I'm told that this banjo was played in the Paul Whitman Band in the 1930s. If so, these are period images of this instrument.

A new vintage instrument - musical saw

I've recently acquired this vintage Mussehl & Westphal musical saw. The tone is really nice. It's going to be fun learning how to play it!

Rockin' for Rett version 3.0

Kinda bummed that I didn't get asked to perform at Rockin' for Rett Version 3.0 this year. Didn't help getting the opening spot on a cold day last year.
