Dave, Pippin and Barry will be playing with the Ululating Mummies @ Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden on New Years Eve Day, Dec. 31. The event starts @ 2 PM. The other mummies' on this gig will be Danny Finney, Robbie Kinter, Stephen Williams and Paul Watson.
The event is included with garden admission fee and includes the Garden Festival of Lights.
Rehearsals have been jocular, boisterous and full of buffoonery. It's great to reconnect with band members for this annual event. In the coming year we hope to perform more often. Look for us @ Balliceaux in February.
Also Danny and Robbie will be playing with Rattlemouth @ The Nile New Years Eve beginning @ 10 PM.

It's good to be back. Look for us at Ellwoods Cafe, O'Toole's Pub and Crossroads Coffee...
We continue working on our upcoming CD "Lucky Buddha". It should be available sometime this Fall. Stephen Williams and John Winn (photos right) have both come into Pippin's studio to help out.
I (Barry) performed solo on the street and loved it. Dave just got a battery powered amp for his bass... so look for the trio on the street...

Happy Lucky is "out to lunch" until the middle of August. During this time we will be working on our new recording Lucky Buddha, which will be available in the Fall. This will be the second in our series of CD's with collage art by Jennifer Watson.
And it's been gratifying to ride around town and hear our CD Carnival of Sound played on WRIR. Last month we made their top ten list of most played World Music. Thank you WRIR. Click HERE for list. It's humbling to be in the company of the other musicians on this list.
Also thank you to Style and Richmond Magazine for favorable mentions this month.
See y'all in August. Hopefully the well stays capped and we get some more rain...

The Happy Lucky Combo is back at O'Toole's this Wednesday, March 24 from 8 - 10:30 PM. Emily Avesian (right) will be there with us. Other expected guests are Bob Jacobs, accordion (right) and Jeff Adams, tenor (right).
We play at O'Toole's every 2nd and 4th Wed. The 2nd Wed. of this month we had to cancel. But Karen Weatherspoon Sokohl (photo above) and Cassandra Cossitt brought a lot of people to come hear us. So that Friday they got everyone together and we played at Karen's house. What a wild house party that turned out to be! See our Facebook page for more photos.
Our CD "Carnival of Sound" goes to press on Monday! It will be available in April.

We all want to help the people of Haiti as they deal with the horrific consequences of yesterday’s earthquake. While HSP isn’t capable of doing emergency relief work outside of Guatemala, we can recommend good folks who do, that you can donate to. Personally, I’ll be donating through Oxfam to help provide immediate emergency assistance.
HSP’s sister nonprofit in Guatemala, AMA (Asociacion de Mujeres del Altiplano), is also planning to donate funds as an organization. The impoverished Mayan women in AMA’s women’s circles plan to raise $250 for women and families in Haiti by the end of this week. These AMA women and their families live on an average of $300 a year, less than $1 a day, making their donation all the more meaningful.
AMA's intentions remind us of the parable of the Widow’s Gift (Mark 12:41-43), in which a poor widow gives her last two copper coins, and thus the greatest gift of all – all she has. AMA will be making their donation through Rights Action, an organization that supports grassroots humanitarian organizing internationally.
Give Now to these HSP recommended organizations
Oxfam has long experience in Haiti and is rushing in teams from around the region to respond to the situation where our assistance is most needed.
Rights Action funds and works with community development, environmental justice, human rights and disaster relief organizations in Guatemala and Honduras, and also in El Salvador, Haiti, Oaxaca and Chiapas.
Direct Relief has an ongoing "Emergency Pre-Positioning Program" and a program in Haiti that stages essential medical materials on site with key partners for immediate use in emergency situations
