2008 Holiday Card

I wish I could have done another video as in past years but the time just wasn’t there. I tried mailing hard copies as well but realized my address book is a mess. Feel free to send me current email and mail addresses for next year. Anyway, this post is your 2008 holiday card. Have a great holiday and a wonderful new year!

Please note: No babies, pregnant wives, or german shepards were in harms way during photo shoot. (Thank you Photoshop)

New Digs


As of last week, the Raes have moved onto greener pastures…Well actually, whiter pastures. Seriously, we have a snow covered pasture in the backyard! With another member of the Rae family on the way, we had no choice but to seek extra space. We are breathing much easier…feels good. Special thanks to all who came out for the move last week. Just be glad we beat the snow!

Van Gogh's live in Syracuse!

Just thought I’d throw a quick invite to anyone in the Syracuse, NY area on this Saturday, December 6. Our band, Van Gogh’s Other Left Ear, is playing at the Half Penny Pub—321 W. Fayette Street , Syracuse, NY 13202. We will be second on stage (approximately 11pm) following The Milkweeds and before Wishpool.

unknown_coverbook_cover1This is our long (very long) awaited, CD release gig for our new album “Unknown”. Featuring 11 original songs! If your around we’d love to see ya…especially since I may be taking a break from gigs for a year or two.

So how did it go?

It was rockin! Despite a stray note or a outa-place crash I’d say it went fairly well. We thoroughly enjoyed playing on an actual stage with actual lights and especially …an actual sound guy. Nice job sound man. Hopefully family life will settle in the near future an gigs/practice will resume.
