On June 20th, Claremont Drive lost one of our most loyal and dedicated fans, Beverly Haarman. In spite of her medical struggles, somehow someway, she found the energy to make it out to 99% of our shows. That's not an exaggeration. With the help of her longtime best friend Kaylia Breedlove, they would make the trek from Plano Il. to just about anywhere we performed even though many times she wasn't feeling very good. Thank you Kaylia for being such a great friend. It should inspire all of us to get up off the couch even though we might not feel like it.
Because of her health she was going to relocate to Florida. We had plans to dedicate our July 29th show to her but God had other plans. Memorial plans have yet to be determined. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
Her smile, her presence and her friendship will be missed.

God has called Grandma Ruth. She will be missed by many. She was an inspiration to all of us to get up and keep dancing.
We met Ruth Reardon 10 years ago when she was a spry 79 year old rock n' roller! As the years went on she continued to come out to our shows and we adopted her as the bands Grandma, as did all of our fans. Even as the years rolled on she always found a way to get up and dance a couple of times a night.
She is gone but will never be forgotten. When we play Hang on Sloopy and Come a little Bit Closer we will know she is looking down and smiling. She inspired a phrase we would quote from time to time.
"You don't stop dancing because you get old, you get old because you stop dancing!"

Once again our Claremont fans proved why they are the best. On a beautiful Sunday at 4:00 in the afternoon many of you choose to come indoors at the Quarry for a matinee show.
You all knocked The Quarry on their butts!

Well, unfortunately we have to call 2020 a year. Playing indoors just isn't a good idea and playing outdoors is simply to cold.
As always we want to thank you for your wonderful support throughout the years. Your support allows us to live our dream. Your support and enthusiasm convinces venues to invite us to perform there.
It's been a weird and crazy year, but this to shall pass and Baby Boomer Rock n' Roll will come back stronger than ever.
Please stay safe and we will see you all again as soon as possible!!
