-First Moon Baby- If you haven’t heard, Josh and moon mama Jocelyn are expecting a little moonie in Spring of 2014!  We’re so excited for them and can’t wait to meet our new family member!

-Pickle Problems- While returning from this year’s Grateful Friends Fest in Northern Wisconsin, we ran into some major problems with the Moon Pickle van.  We blew the transmission.  After a lot of consideration- we decided that we just couldn’t let her go and had it repaired.  We weighed our options and decided to go with a new transmission as opposed to buying used.  It cost us over $2,000 for all the repairs.  It has taken a big chunk of our money that we were using to finance our new album, and has ultimately put a few things on hold.  We’re just glad we have the pickle back and running.  Stay tuned for an upcoming fund raiser where we will be trying to pay back our debt and get back on track in the studio.

-Upcoming Album- As I explained before, work on our album, Dance in the Rain, has been put on a small hold while we raise funds again.  We almost waited on the van until we finished the album, BUT we need to be able to keep touring and get to shows to keep our heads above water.  Stay tuned for what we feel is our best work to date.
