The Cow Ponies are going on a little hiatus for a couple of months as our founder and band leader John recovers from surgery and we get our new keyboard player Jeff Stehr up to speed on our songlist. Keith Bolog, our pedal steel player, is no longer with the band—we wish him well.

Because of John’s surgery and drummer Tom Mohan’s motorcycle accident, The Rock-a-dials / Cow Ponies show scheduled for December 28 at Circle-A Café in Riverwest (Milwaukee) has been cancelled. In our place are two great bands: Resist Her Transistor (our drummer Andy is their drummer too) and Spudbucket (our bass player Tom T is their frontman). John and Robin of The Cow Ponies hope to be out here on these streets by then—we’d love to see you at Circle-A for this really cool show. 8-10 p.m. $5 cover.

In the meantime, we wish you a very happy holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you late winter/early spring with some new music, a new rockin’ line-up—and our new CD, produced by Mike Hoffman. Back soon!
