My husband and I love Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.
1. They're amazing talents
2. They're from Springfield, Missouri
3. They're nice folks
4. They're real-life U.S. State Department Cultural Ambassadors
5. Did I mention they're nice folks?
I met Phil Dickey (pictured above) when I worked with his wife, Grace, in Springfield. Grace is a super hipster chick, very smart, and lovely.
Then, I met Phil's sister, Roni, while interviewing her all-girl band for a news story. Roni is now on keyboards for #SSLYBY.
When I heard the band was coming to Madison, I screamed.
I was almost as excited as these folks (below) - Theresa and Kevin drove from Champaign, IL to see the group. Tomorrow, Theresa and Kevin are driving to Chicago to watch them again... and then going to Champaign to watch them a third time. Kevin told me it's for his birthday present! He's #SSLYBY's biggest fan.
The group has a new album out! Here are two of the songs they sang live... paired with their music videos. I apologize for the sizing, but you can click on them to open a new window!
