Portfolio Weekly Magazine, has nominated The Muckrakes as "BEST AMERICANA ACT" for 2008. It's needless to say that we are happy and humbled by this nomination. Just being NOMINATED as one of the top bands for all of Tidewater/ Hampton Roads/ The 7 Cities, is within itself, a thrill.

We'd like to take this time to ask for your vote. All you have to do is go to PFW's website and cast a vote for us. That's it.

.......the drum set. Well, our show opening for Formula (cool bunch of fellers) was pretty good seeing as we were down 3 Rakes and Doc had 2 torn hammy's. Despite the pain, he powered through........with the help of some liquid painkillers. Especially nice was that many friends and family members made it out to see us and provide moral support, etc. Got a lot of good feedback and I think we made at least a few new Muckheads in the process. Thanks to all!!

At times I find it a bit disconcerting being at the back of the stage (and behind 6 other people) because I can't see how the crowd is reacting to what we're doing. I guess it's also a good thing if we're getting stuff thrown at us.

Well, can't wait to rock Tanner's Creek proper this Friday night. Hope to see you there!

G'nite Virginia where ever you are........
