*CANCELLED* Band of Brothers: Levin & La Barbera

January 16 at 8:00 pm

 We want to express our regret and disappointment that Tuesday’s show has to be cancelled.  We were looking forward to the Eugene show, but sometimes the risks to health and safety are just too great.   On behalf of Tony, Joe, Pat and Pete, thank you for your support.  It means a lot to us.  Hopefully we’ll get another chance to do this.  Everyone, be well.  Stay safe.

– Band of Brothers
