Winter Break was recorded live in February 2013 at legendary Armando's in the San Francisco Bay Area. The band's fifth year anniversary show was a fitting return to the same crowd and room in which it began. The band had just come off its annual winter break, with fresh legs and energy, and a brand new composition of the same name.

We hope you enjoy this set captured by Rob Clevenger and mixed by Bob Knight. Thanks to them, to Roy Jeans for hosting us, to Eloise Cotton for letting us bring the timbales back in the room, to Joe Vorderbrueggen for mixing the show, to Robert Perry and Xandor for helping film, to Jon Ramos for the art, and to everyone who keeps coming back to enjoy this music with us. Finally, thanks to our families who continue to support our passion and this music.

Track Name: Winter Break
On this very cold day, I wish you'd stay
With me, for a little while, show me your smile
And I'd walk a mile, in this cold for you
Let's dance and stay
And let Ben Dean play on
