OUR savior

Dance party at the recording studio. It's always fun if Patrick's there.
As folks around the world celebrate Passover and Easter and do a whole lot of yapping about gods and lords, we want to take a moment to acknowledge OUR savior. His name is Patrick Spencer Bodd and he is the composer and accompanist of all of our music. We come up with silly words and, occasionally, the faintest whiff of a melody and he makes a song out of it. We would call ourselves Mel & El & Patrick but it doesn't rhyme, so we can't. But we CAN sing his praises. And we will. Especially because today is Our Savior's birthday. 

Happy Birthday, Patrick Spencer Bodd! You are the most terrifically wonderful human being. We appreciate that you are very smart about music things. We are grateful that when we say that a song passage sounds "meh" or "wicky wacky", that you are able to translate that into a tweak that makes it better. When thinking of you, we also like to toss around words like "genius", "good at every damn thing", "too patient for words" and "cute as a button". We wish you All The Good Things in the year to come and are so lucky to have you on our team.

And guess what? Patrick not only writes very talented music for us, he writes very talented music for his own self. Yes, he is a top banana singer-songwriter. He will soon have his debut CD available (it's really good!) and in its honor he'll be playing a couple of songs at our next show. It's gonna be terrific.

Get your red hot tickets now and join us for all of the funniness and the very well made music, too.
