Central Ohio based Husband-Wife team Jill and John Garratt have assembled this band, and have a cd release show coming up.

This Show, coming up at The Shrunken Head, features performances from several other acts, including Harvest Kings, Miller Kelton, and Kevin Collins, to name a few.

It's all part of Mingo Town Music's "Big Summer Showcase 2".

Say the name "Les Paul" to anybody born after 1960, and they'll probably think you're talking about an electric guitar. But the musician and inventor, who was born 100 years ago Tuesday, was also an accomplished jazz guitarist. Paul was never happier than when playing for a live audience.
