    Dear Ones-

    Most of you already know about Spyder's injury to his eye and the emergency surgery he had over the weekend. He's doing very well and should make a full recovery. Unfortunately, he will be unable to travel or perform for a while. It is with our deepest regret and sincerest apologies, that effective immediately, all 5 shows previously scheduled for Aug 11-16 will have to be cancelled.”

    -Pat & Spyder


    "I'd like to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers, they certainly are contributing to the healing process. I have been experiencing headaches for the past month, performing through the pain.....thinking it was nothing and would just go away. It didn't.....instead it turned out to be a serious eye emergency and required immediate surgery to repair it. The prognosis is good and I look forward to seeing y'all soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding. You're the best!"
