Oct. 12 to a full house of friends, fans, and family at the Windjammer. Led by tall-standing longhair Jon Hager, the band performed their new collection from front to back in the first set and unveiled some brand-new tunes in the second set.[image-2]

An enormous banner from Fusion Five Studio and their sister record label Indie Records hanged from the backstage wall. Hager, organist Johnny Boyd, six-string bassist Nathan Gee, and drummer Kellett Arnold played well and looked stoic, determined, and ready for the next step forward. They perform this Friday, October 19th at Halligan’s in West Ashley.
