Hello Everyone! Now that we have the holidays behind us and I have finally unpacked, I wanted to let you know what we have going on in the New Year!

We had a great time on our most recent AFE tour to Europe! Each tour just gets better and better. I finally got some pictures of the trip up on the web. I will continue to add more when I can. I actually want to wait and get a copy of Jeff’s pictures (his are better).
We had the privilege of welcoming home THOUSANDS of very brave Americans who had just made it back to Germany after a long tour of duty in Iraq. We shared a stage with Puddle of Mudd and Los Lobos for 2 HUGE concerts and tried to make sure that everyone forgot where they had just come from for just a second. I think we ALL had a great time. Check out the “tour photos” page on the website.
I was fortunate this time around to have my album “Life in Mosaic” for sale in the PX/BX on the bases. It was a new thing for both AFE and AAFES, and it went well. Be sure to pick it up at a PX/BX near you!
We traveled by tour bus our whole trip and had a great driver, Armin, who kept us safe (and sane) for the long drives through the European countryside. We spent a lot of drives watching movies, sleeping, playing music and recovering from hangovers (that German beer is STRONG) J. We really appreciated the hospitality from all our hosts as well as the great people we met along the way. We had a great time getting to know you all. On a personal note, I had a chance to meet up with one of my best friends that is stationed in K-Town, so that was one of the high points of my trip.
The band and I are getting ready to head into the studio to record a 3 song EP. We have had quite a bit of inspiration over the last couple of months and are ready to lay down some tracks. We will hopefully get that out to you soon! We are in the process of booking the band for February and March, so keep checking back. We are working on making a stop through NYC, so keep a lookout! If you have a venue you would like to see us in, please contact us!
Once again, thank you for all your continued support! Also, thank you to all our Service members, their families and contractors for the hard work and sacrifices that you make on a daily basis! We hope the New Year brings you much love and happiness!
Hope to see you all soon!!!! Jenny Boyle and the Band www.jennyboyle.net www.myspace.com/jennyboyle
