Laurel Isbister mentions us

After her recent appearance in the Coffeehouse Laurel Isbister had some nice things to say about us:

The show at Highway 61 Coffeehouse in Vicksburg June 7th was a lot of
fun. Loye and I have played there a couple of times now and always
enjoy the experience of a quintessential small town independent café.
If you've never been you should check it out -- also don't miss the
Attic Gallery upstairs -- truly great! We've got some photos from
this show up here.


My Space?

Okay, we have a My Space page now.




Here we see my Highway 61 Coffeemobile transferring badly needed electrical energy to the Espress-Oh! - mobile.

A family of fellow independent coffeehouse owners from South Carolina were traveling through town Monday and, while enjoying our fair city, left open the door to their van. Dead battery.

I swung the 61 Coffeemobile into action while Josh snapped a phone picture for posterity. He calls this shot Java Jump Off.
