In the Garden: CD Review in “What’s On”

Thursday, July 6th, 2006

Wowie. Chris Reitz, who works at Elderly Instruments with Brian, also writes music reviews for the Lansing State Journal’s Thursday “What’s On” section. Today he took up a good part of a page reviewing our In the Garden CD.

What can I say? He did not have to choose our CD at all, yet he did it with much gusto. He says in part (after describing how unusual our early-1900’s music, instruments and presentation are):

Ah, but the Heftones are not a novelty act. They genuinely love this stuff, and it’s that quality that makes them so winning…”

Chris has heard us perform live, he knows our stuff. He knows songs we sing on stage that we have never recorded. And he sure did make us sound good today, surely to some folks who have not heard of us before.

He also mentions that our next public local performance will be Thursday, July 20. We will be opening for Ukulele great Travis Harrelson at the Creole Gallery, show time 7:30pm, tickets $14 (call 487-9549 for reservations).

Thanks a bunch, Chris!
