     Howdy Friends, it's been a while since I updated this thing.  I just wanted to let you know that we're still alive and kickin', booking out our summer, and have teamed up with our good pals and musical genius's at The Deer Lodge and finally started work on a new record!  It's been about 5 years since the last time we recorded a whole record so as long as the good lord's willin' and the creeks don't rise, we should have a pile of new (as well as a few old) Honkytonk songs for you!
     Like I said, we've been working on filling out our calendar, and should have a heap of new shows up soon so please check back with us, or add yourself to our mailing list if you haven't already... I promise, we don't send out stuff nearly as much as we should.
    We've also got our regular gigs like Jollie's Restaurant & Lounge the 1st Friday of the month.  If you've never been to Jollie's, shows here have no cover, tons of parking, a great big dance floor, food 24hrs a day, great service, good drinks, and classic 60's decor complete with a big red barn stage!  If you want to know where to see us on a regular basis in Portland, OR, we're at the Landmark Saloon every 4th Friday.  If you want to see real-deal Country music in Portland any day of the week, the Landmark Saloon is THE ONLY place to be... it's the best little honytonk in town! 
     On top of that we've got some dates booked at our North Oregon Coast "Home Away From Home," The San Dune Pub in Manzanita, OR, will be returning for our 10th (or is it 11th year?) to the Ketchum Kalf Rodeo in Glenwood, Wa again, we have a 3-day residency durring the Pendleton Round-Up at Virgils' at Cimmiyottis in September again.  That's not nearly all of it so please check out our calendar and add us to yours!
     If you enjoy our music, you may want to check out one of the other bands I'm involded in like the great Western Swing 7-piece, The Barn Door Slammers or a brand new project that Countryside Ride All-Star Dan Lowenger and I recently cooked-up and simply titled "Bret Ervin & Friends." 
     Alright, I think that's all I've got for now, but please check back and I'll do my best to keep this thing updated now that we're going back into busy season!  I hope to see you in a rodeo beer garden or on the Honky-tonk Hardwood floor soon! 

Bret Ervin Lien, Honkytonk Man.
