Haven't seen us for a while? Neither have we, but, we're back on the road  now,  with two gigs this weekend and a bunch more  to come.

This Friday - First Friday in Lancaster - The Ragtime Willi Band will be cranking out tunes in front of AK Interiors, an interior design firm featuring boutique home furnishings, accessories, and a gift shoppe - and lots of art. So if you're out and about for First Friday, stop by and catch some tunes and check out AK Interiors. You'll be glad you did. Music starts at 6 and goes until 9.

Then on  Sunday  afternoon we'll return to  Moon Dancer Winery and Cider House  in  Wrightsville  for three hours of wine, women, and song. (We'll provide the songs, Moon Dancer will provide the wine, and the women just seem to show up.) And there's beer and homemade cider as well - and brick oven pizza to die for. As always,  there's no cover, no minimum. And, weather-permitting, we'll be playing on the patio - where eagles soar (sometimes). Don't want to miss that!
Hope to see you there.
