A note from Kevin...

Hello friends -

 

I hope you are all having a lovely 2015 so far.

 

I am writing today to give you a bit of news: I recently learned that I have a serious health issue which will leave me “on the bench”  for a few months starting this month.

 

In my absence, The Rock Boat cruise and other shows with Barenaked Ladies will go on as scheduled with Maury LaFoy filling in for me. Hopefully my recovery will be speedy and I'll be back on the road soon.

 

I will miss seeing you all and I apologize for the surprise.

 

I look forward to seeing you all again a little ways down the road.

 

Please send good vibes my way, and see you soon.

 

Kevin

    Kev, this will just not do. I'm hoping for a Days In Frames solo show at The Macbeth (London's finest pub and sh*thole) - we really need to get the UK Ships and Dippers back together and unleash our delightful(ish) harmonies. Get well, matey!

Hope you get better soon and God Bless.

    Been thinking as of late "where's a new Barenaked Ladies" album. Then I found out about the tour and on top of that, "Days in Frames" which is delicate and finely mastered. Speedy recovery wishes? Consider them done. Be well.
