Hi MLJ --

Just read your post and was saddened -- not only by your plight and that of countless others struggling to make a go of the music business, but to hear such a damning report on OKC. I have some great memories of that town back in the early and mid 1960s when I was stationed at Tinker and spent a lot of time at the now-defunct Buddhi and Sword and Stone. Heard great blues acts in both, with the highlight being a whole weekend of listening to Mance Lipscombe at the S&S. I even have about three hours of live recording I did there.

From the name of the band, I wondered if the members are also at Tinker -- mostly because of the play on "wild blue yonder," which is always associated with air force.

Sorry I can't offer you any real support -- like turning out to hear the group -- but tho't I'd jump in and say hi and encourage you and yours to keep at it. I've been a blues fan since the 1950s and I know how few we are, but even if most don't know it, just the music makes it worthwhile.
