It's those Lost And Found guys, checking in.

Hey there!
We told you we'd be in touch, and here we are doing just that.  We wanted to update you on a few things since we last wrote.
GET THE ONLINE SHOWS IN YOUR HOME!
THING #1
We now have in our hands the DVDs from our two Online Shows we played last year, and you can have them in your hands as well.  As you may remember, we did two shows on December 29th, 2015, which we streamed over the internet to folks around the world.
We asked the filmer people (technical term) to turn that footage into DVDs, and they're now available to the interested at this link.
You can get the Early Show, the Later Show, or Both Shows by using the pull-down tab.
Note: If you added tips during the show in order to get your copy (or copies), we need an address to mail it (them) to you.  If you haven't yet received your DVD (DVDs), or haven't responded to our e-mail asking for your address, please drop us a note.
GERMANY, Y'ALL!
THING #2

Registration is in full function for the Luther 500 Festival in 2017!
Join us in Germany for a great week, visiting historic sites, singing along with some great bands (plus us), eating trays of interesting German snacks, meeting new people and getting reacquainted with old friends, and walking where Luther walked.
Answers to some questions you might have can be found here.
NOW LET US DANCE!
THING #3
You know what's coming?  Easter.  That's what.
Remember our song, (Now Let Us) Dance?  You know the perfect day to use that song?  Easter.  That's when.
You can get the sheet music for that song right here.
You can get an affordable license to use the song for a whole year right here.
You can see a video of us playing the song right here.

 
Once again, we want to say that we hope you're doing well, enjoying life, and looking forward to celebrating the Resurrection as much as we are.
Feel free to drop us a note any time, and follow us on all those social media links, below.
We miss seeing your faces all around the country, but we are grateful to have known your friendship and to have had your support for so many years.

Stein Auf!

George and Michael

Our Farewell Address

So long, y'all!

For everything . . .

It's been quite a ride, as they say--a ride that started on bicycles, as a matter of fact.
We've played together as Lost And Found for 29 years.  (From back when the New York Metropolitans last won the World Series.)  We have played in all 50 states, and numerous other countries.  We've won the John Lennon Songrwiting Contest twice, and released 17 albums.  We've both married and had our allotted two daughters.  As best we can tell, we have played about 5,000 concerts, driven over a million miles, and flown a total of 4 million miles. 
Like we said, it's been quite a ride.
We have been able to do all this because we've had the support of friends, family, and you.
You are the ones who let us stay with you, and gave us food, and let us play our songs, and encouraged us through it all.
You are the ones who invited us to your youth gatherings, bought our cassettes, CDs, and mp3s.
You are the ones who encouraged your friends to listen to us with phrases like, "You've got to see them in concert, actually, to get it."
In short, you're the ones who made this career possible for us, an independent band trying to proclaim the Gospel through music, feed two families, and figure out what we wanted to be when we grew up.
"So, now what?" you ask.
Thanks for asking.
Michael has taken a job with a music-app start up.  George thinks this means he is going to get paid for listening to Spotify, but Michael insists it's an actual job, with bosses and a desk and stuff like that.

George has been applying for positions at churches, though nothing is solid yet.  Michael thinks this means he will be working one hour a week, but George insists he might end up at a church with more than one service a week, so it could be twice that much.
"What about the website?  And your store?  And Germany?" you ask.
Thanks for asking.
Our website, speedwood.com, will remain active for years to come.  We'll probably migrate it to a different hosting platform, since there will be no need to send out the Concert Tracker that our pals at ElectricPulp invented back in the 1900's.

Lost And Found merchandise will still be available at our store, for as long as we still have stuff.  That is, once we run out of things, we won't be printing them again.  You can still get the Farewell Tour shirts and Rock On shirts in most sizes, and we have most of our CDs in stock, though a few are already sold out.  Sometime this year, we will have DVDs of the online concerts from Dec. 29th available, so be on the lookout for those fun things.  Also, though many of our songs are available on i-tunes, the easiest way to find downloads is through CD Baby.  For actual CDs, go to our store.

The Luther 500 Festival is coming along quite nicely for 2017, and we hope you will plan to join us.  Registration is open now and you can reserve your space.  we're happy to have a variety of other bands traveling with us to Germany for the festivals in 2017.

Though we've accepted a couple of weekend events in 2016, as well as a youth gathering this summer, having actual jobs this year means we won't have many chances to get the band back together.  If you've got something up your sleeve, and can handle plane tickets and expenses, drop us an email.  You never know when our bosses or vestry will feel like letting us go for a couple days.
"So, is that it then? you ask.
Thanks for asking.
Pretty much, yep.

We might write some songs together again, once the dust settles.  And our Facebook page will remain active, since George can't stop himself from posting stuff there.

Thank you again for all your support over the years.  It means more to us than we can say, but please know, we are grateful, and we love you.

Stein Auf!

George and Michael
