Greetings Gypsy jazzers!
Sorry I'm a little late this month. It's been a little crazy around here lately. We moved and then I was flying around the country for the Django in June Festival and the Djangofest San Fransisco. I'm back now. The good news is that we have considerably more storage space now so I'll be stocking a lot more of everything!
