Avatar Health Update

Due to back problems and the possibility of impending surgery, Avatar has spent the better part of three months “laying on the couch watching Bloomberg doing hard narcotics.” He just got the news this week that he won’t be having surgery any time soon, so he’s free to start having a life again. As he says it, he’s finally going to be “back to work on new songs about the real world of Faerie.” Email him get well wishes at avatar@elvendrums.com

Upcoming Elvendrums Performances

We’re excited about our upcoming concert schedule, with more shows planned between now and July than the entire 2004 concert season! To be sure we could meet the schedule; we’ve been working with Gregg Harris, who joined us on the Gateway to Faerie recording. Gregg was willing to step in to rehearse and play with us, given Avatar’s uncertain prognosis and long recuperation time. We’re pleased to have his help as we start our 2005 season.

Here’s what we have planned so far:

Saturday April 23rd - Jefferson City, MO
7 pm. Concert and Silent Auction Benefit for Moreau Montessori School (our daughter, Kaia is a student there!)
Email Devan for tickets - $7 in advance.

May 14-15; May 21-22; June 4-5 - St. Louis MO

We’re looking forward to performing again. Although our last Elvendrums show was in October, Nerethel and Devan have been busy, drumming and singing each week at Unity Church of Peace in Jefferson City, MO and jamming with local musicians in the area. Michele VanHoose is the music director and the place really rocks each Sunday. Feel free to drop by if you’re in the area.

Happy Spring!
