Week of July 27th, 2020

It's been a few weeks. How are you?

Music has always gotten us through. The morning pump up, the breakdown, the celebration, the goodbye. 

Turns out there was a lot of musical magic made this week and it feels like a good time for magic.

We're very pleased to bring you all the necessary ingredients for scream singing, dancing while you cook, and crying yourself to sleep.
