NEW YORK! Part 1

For my 31st birthday, we got to take an almost free trip to New York!  "Concrete jungle where dreams are made of...." Cue Jay-Z and Alicia Keys.

Here's the story in a nutshell:  Our good buddy, Don Chaffer, wrote an album called "The Khrusty Brothers" which has really amazing songs that center around a story about a family band.  Billy played drums in the live band when they played shows in KC.  Don turned this music and story into a musical.  The musical won a grant to be workshopped in New York.  Billy auditioned and got the part of "Bud" who also happens to be the drummer.  And VOILA!  We end up in NYC.

Here are some pics of the cast rehearsing.
