Plans are falling into place for FROM ORDINARY's upcoming recording project. We've written a few new songs (tried 3 of them out at our Fine Line Music Cafe show December 18) and are thinking we'll be going into the studio in February. WAJC-FM radio has already promised to play our new record on the air. Stay tuned! *** The COSTELLO & HIPPS duo will be appearing at The Waterfront once a month in 2013. It's an exceptional supper club, located along the riverfront in LaCrosse, WI. In the nicer weather, we play out on the outdoor patio, which I'm guessing is one of the nicest in the country... deluxe, comfy patio furnutute, glass tables, beautiful potted plants, a full-size bar, and a gorgeous view of the river, over which the sun sets each evening. If you're in the area, make it a point to check our schedule and join us. *** Watch for the TOM HIPPS TRIO's 2013 appearances at the legendary Piggy's Lounge in LaCrosse, WI. *** TOM HIPPS & the SHAKERS peformed for the 3rd year in a row at Westfield Golf Club on New Year's Eve. Great crowd and loads of fun, as always. *** I sincerely wish you all a happy and healthy New Year!
