Wow, what a weekend! It all began Saturday as the crowds at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival grew bigger than ever. We had some good-sized audiences and sold lots of CDs. Plus, we were able to meet quite a few people who found our music on But the world was slightly batted around when our Number One Nagian and CD Lass (no, not seedy lass;), Courtney McKenny, said she couldn't make it out Sunday and Monday for the faire due to school.

So at the end of the day Saturday, we pulled aside a couple wonderful women, Jamie and Merideth, to help us sell CDs for those two days. They jumped at the opportunity and by Sunday afternoon at the Smoker, they were dubbed the Brobdingknocker Babes. Thanks a million for helping us out and offerring to do anything to sell a CD! They are incredible!

Sunday night was the cast party...and let me say wow! I have never seen as big a production at a faire. It wasn't just a cast party. It was cast party and awards ceremony with a DJ, Big Screen TV, and all the glamour you'd never expect from a Renaissance Festival. One person described it was bribery for Columbus Day on Monday, but still...

Well, we were thrilled to be out at this shindig if for no other reason, than we were voted the Best New Act of 2001 at KCRF for this year. We were able to share our joy with all Courtney, Brian, our friends of Noble Cause, and our countless new friends at the faire. Plus, our good friends Tourdion won second place for Best Act!!! We stayed out and danced wayyyy too late, but it was a blast! A special thanks to all who have helped support us this year at KCRF!
