ACOUSTIC DUO PROJECT

The two of us sat down together just to pick around, David on Clara and I, on my guitar.  We started finding this dynamic where we were controlling little, subtle nuances of the music that can easily get lost in an electric band.  As dynamic as theCAUSE can get, bringing the music from a raging jam to the point where you can hear a pin drop across the room, we were finding this breath even easier between the two of us.  So, we decided to book a few gigs.  It all started one night, during the winter when we were booked at a bar in the North Hills that will remain nameless, cancelled us without notice.  We were really psyched to take this newfound sound to an audience, so David placed a call to our great friend and local clubowner, RON "MOONDOG" ESSER, to see if we could just set some stuff up - unannounced - at The Starlite Lounge.  He obliged and we had an awful lot of fun.  Since then, we've played a few times at the Starlite and are now booking other places, too.  If you like to sit & listen and you like the look of the setlists below, you're bound to have fun at one of these little shows.  It's always a good time....
