Canasta would like to thank everyone who came out to our record release show on Saturday night. It was great to play in front of so many people! And double thanks to anyone who supported us by purchasing a CD. Once again, if you haven't yet picked up a copy of our "Find the Time" EP, please check out our website for ordering information.

In other news, Matt and Jeff, who moonlight as trombonists for the Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, will be accompanying that band to New York for a show at Southpaw on December 11. They were even included in a SYGC photo that was published in the Illinois Entertainer. Don't leave us, guys!
