SEPTEMBER of 2022
We want to thank everybody who came to our shows in Northern California!
Fernanda Froes-Pruett was live, singing and playing guitar, at the legendary Watson's Vets Club, in Mount Shasta, on September 15, and also at Liberty Arts Gallery, in Yreka (for the opening reception of art exhibition "Banga") on September 16.
On both events we had a blast, the crowd was awesome, we could see some of our dear friends, and there were good vibes all over the place!
We'll be going through the pictures and videos of both events, so we can post them here on this website and on Fernanda Froes-Pruett's YouTube channel (that we are bringing up-to-date with our current material).
So thank you all!
