Two Final All-Request Online Shows!

Our final two performances as Lost And Found will be streamed online, on Tuesday, December 29th, at 4pm and 7pm Eastern time.  Both shows will consist entirely of songs chosen by The People (That's You!), using a system of "notes," as explained below.  For each show, the ten songs that accrue the most "notes" from listeners will be the set list.  All requests, all night.

The shows will be hosted by Stage It, an online platform that allows listeners to watch live concerts online by purchasing a ticket using "notes," which cost 10 cents each.  This way, for a small price, the technical details of streaming and chatting are handled by professionals.  Listeners can "tip" the band using notes to show support, and so that the band gets paid for the concert.

And now, of course, you want to know how to make your request, right?

STEP ONE:  Buy a ticket to the show(s) here (4pm or 7pm), after setting up a Stage It account.  We know it's a few steps, but we promise it is easy.  Or, you know, not too hard.

STEP TWO:  Your ticket to the show entitles you to request one song.  And your 100 notes go toward that requested song (just as everyone else's 100 notes go toward their request).  Once you've purchased your ticket, you'll have access to the conversation stream at the show(s) you're attending (4pm and 7pm Eastern time).  Simply post your request in the conversation stream on the right side, and your 100 notes will be added to the tally for the song you choose.

STEP THREE:  You can ramp up your song's total notes with tips at whichever show you requested it, right up until midnight (Eastern time) on Boxing Day (December 26th).  You can add notes to your request simply by tipping at either the Early Show or the Later Show.  (We track your total notes along with your request as we go, and will add up the total votes for each song on December 27th.)  Every note counts as one vote, and the top 10 requests at each show will be played at that show.  (I'm thinking we might need to open up our Lost And Found songbooks on December 27th!)

If you have questions, drop me an e-mail at  If you already bought a ticket, we will be in touch to get your request.  Remember, you have until midnight December 26th to get in your request and extra votes for your song.  Good luck, and, happy voting!

See you on December 29th!

Two Online Shows

Get your tickets now!!!

The Later 7pm show . . .

7PM Eastern, click here


We have decided to finish off our Farewell Tour with two final shows, both streamed online using a company called Stageit.  


The shows will be broadcast at 4pm and 7pm, Eastern time on December 29th, 2015.


The number of tickets is limited, due to bandwidth issues.  (We've been drinking milkshakes  to try to solve that, but so far, no big change.)


We recognize it is a bit of a process to get the tickets, but once you've created an account, purchased some "notes" (the currency in Stageit land), you can reserve a space at either show . . . or both!  12/29/15  4pm and 7pm



We're currently working on a method to allow folks to make requests.  We'll have a blog post explaining the process once we get it worked out, and we will e-mail those who've already purchased tickets.

But, don't forget, you need to get a ticket in advance, and space is limited, so get yours today, and don't forget to rock on!

We Announce, You Vote, You Win!

The John Lennon International Songwriting Contest

Again, with the honor!

So, those of you who've known us for a while know that back in 1998, we entered a brand-new songwriting contest created by Yoko Ono and some others, called the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest.  That year, there were about 24,000 entries, in 12 categories, and we won Grand Prize in the Gospel/Inspirational category, with our song "Lions."
It was a very nice honor, and that was that.

But there's more.
So, flash forward 16 years, and we decided to enter the contest one more time, given as how we're going to stop touring after December of this year.

So, we entered a brand-new song in the contest, which has become so crowded they now have two "Sessions," with 12 category winners each time.  Much to our surprise, we once again took the Gospel/Inspirational category with our newest song, "Rise Up," a social justice song, rooted in the sacraments.  (The link to our version of the song is at the bottom of this post.)

Now we need your help to win Song of the Year.
So the next step is kind of like jousting.  Our song goes up against the winner from Session 2 in head to head combat, based on votes from people like you.  We're not sure what the end result is called, but assumedly it's something like the "Grand Grand Prize Winner," or the "Grandest Prize Winner," or some such thing.
You can click on any of banners in this e-mail to cast your vote.  Simply scroll down until you see our category in the bottom right-hand corner.  You can vote once each day for the entirety of the month of April, and we definitely appreciate your support as often as you're willing to stop by and vote for our song.
From the Folks:

Please also let your fans, family & friends know that they too have a shot at WINNING. The more each person votes the better chances they have of winning a brand new Epiphone Casino guitar! All they have to do is vote (each day if they like, for an increased chance of winning the guitar), and then enter their e-mail address into the prompt box after voting. One lucky voter will be shipped the Epiphone after the voting period!

A Band on a Bandwagon

We're usually not ones for jumping on the shopper-discount bandwagon, but when you're about to enter into your final year of touring, all them "usually" things are up for grabs, right?

Point being, if you were thinking you might want to take advantage of No Shipping Thursday, and ALSO get some Lost And Found stuff shipped to you for free, this is your THURSDAY.

Think of it as a throwback THURSDAY, to a time when there were no shipping costs.  (Which would be a time before there were people, come to think of it.)

So, if you were to go to our new store, located here, and remember that today is THURSDAY, you might want to enter the name of that day (i.e. THURSDAY) in a spot that says, "Apply Discount Code."

[If you'd like to get stuff that isn't available at the new store, you can still do that at the old store, which is here  However, you won't get the free shipping because in that universe it's still like Tuesday or something.]

Remember, this ain't no Rebecca Black song.  It's THURSDAY

Kickin' in the front seat
Sittin' in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up
Which seat can I take?

I'd take the one with free shipping, if I were you!


Off to get some stamps,

Farewell Tour: A Update

Happy fall, y'all:

As you can see from the map below, there are several states that will be completely passed over on the 2015 Lost And Found Farewell Tour.

So, if you were thinking you might want to book a concert in one of those states (or any of the others, for that matter), now is the time to call or write.

We've got about 12 open dates as of this writing.

You can e-mail us here.

Or call us at 419.897-9792.

Hope you're having a pumpkin spice of a fall, and that we'll see you at a concert sometime in the coming year!

George (and, Michael, by inference)
