For years now my friends and I have played for family and friends at BBQ's in back yards and get-together celebrations. After one summer in 2009 when we had unusually been to a couple in a row we noticed everyone singing along which was at that time when we heard everyone's voices over our own we decided to put these family favorites into a four song demo.

Most of the work is done. While the songs on our site are well enough to share with you they are raw studio tracks. We are hoping with your help to have it mastered, produced and released. Thank you for your support.

"Reed Street Serenade" is an all acoustic album of favorites we chose to share with everyone.

Flyin Home - Is a favorite song while I was in the army we used to sing and think about what we were fighting for. Original words and music was written by Erin Fitzgibbon that I carried on much to the delight of other soldiers in other parts of the world. We reworked it and played it for a friend of ours when he came back from Afghanistan and were asked again and again to perform it.

Cry For me - This was a song that took on a life of it's own from words to music. Everyone has their own feelings from it and if it was ever about one thing that moment has long past. The up beat driving chorus and the long vivacious outro hide the pain of the words in a nice blend that goes on and on live.

Vice n Virtue - Is the only song that was start to finish a collaboration of everyone to see how we worked together. Although we have never performed it live it's melody is proving contagious and the song is rapidly becoming one of the most popular.

Days Gone By - Was a blues tune written by two fifteen year old novice guitarists back in the early 1990's while living on Reed Street in Gray's Ferry neighborhood in South Philadelphia. Hence the demo name. This song was revisited and reworked much to everyone's enjoyment. This outro fades but around a back yard fire goes on and on till the bass walks off for a frosty beverage.
