Brag time for Notes Norton - plus a pic of our Parkers
« on: January 31, 2018, 08:05:30 PM »
Leilani and I, The Sophisticats were featured in a regional, heavy stock, glossy magazine, Indian River Magazine which serves 3 adjacent counties on The Treasure Coast. Our area is called The Treasure Coast because without the protection of the Bahama islands, quite a few Spanish Galleons shipwrecked off shore here in hurricanes back in the conquistador era.

It's the annual Best Of The Treasure Coast edition, and we are the only band in there.

We hate the first picture, because the orange and red stage lights makes Leilani look old and ghastly. I am that ugly however. The photographer wanted to do it over, but he had a heart attack and died, and the publisher had a deadline and couldn't arrange another shoot.

The last picture shows us 'pretend playing' (before the gig) our Parkers. Leilani has a PM10, and I have a  DF522NN (NN for Notes Norton - a custom job).

The press was nice, it gained us quite a few new fans, and some more gigs as well.

If interested, I have the cover, contents and our article saved here:

Nice article.  Makes me want to visit (particularly in the middle of a Canadian winter).  I guess I don't need to tell you she's aging much more gracefully haha.

BTW those two thoughts were completely unrelated.

Thanks for sharing!

Notes!
Great news that you two are making money doing what you love. Nice article.
Keep up the good work as spokespersons for Parker...maybe someday we’ll see a new guitar line up.
Cheers!

Super cool!  And I don't agree with you on the first picture.  She looks fantastic!
