Come August came into being in December of 2004 when my daughter Karen and I were joined onstage by drummer Dave Swegan at Mackey’s Grill in Fort Collins which has since closed. Dave sat in with us after listening to a few songs. His 30+ years’ experience and exquisite feel fit in quickly and provided an added touch of professionalism to our music. Brett Mattson soon joined us on bass and we then added Andrew Sorem on lead guitar. What started out in a living room with Karen and me had become something special.

Over the years the lineup has changed from time to time, but the spirit of the music has remained true to the origins of the band. The music was special and the shows seemed magical.
