Happy New Year

2021 was a magical year for CCL.  We played some shows, made some good folks smile and dance, and embraced the love that music creates.  Y'all stay cool out there and we look forward to another wild ride in 2022.  See you soon!

What a Whirlwind

That was an amazing time and to be honest we are amazed everything went off without a hitch.  We had a great tour with the extended lineup and what a pleasure it was to play at Town Hall with Judy Collins.  Thanks to everyone for the magical times.  We're off the road for a bit but still singing in the shower and waiting to get you on your toes.  Happy Holidays!

Holiday Tour Starts this Week!

This fine week of December heralds the return of our infamous Electric Holiday Tour.  Since we have embraced drums (via Dan Hall) and electricity in our normal show we are looking at this years' edition as an Expanded CCL with our good friends Jay Brown & Johnny Irion joining the band as rock and roll sidemen.  We will play all your CCL favorites with a sprinkle of Holiday Psychedelia and a few AM Gold selections.  Less of a Mariah Carey Holiday Special, more of a Rock Show in December.  Good times guaranteed!  Links Below.

Cheers,
Dave, John & Greg.

Electric Holiday Tour 2021

We're Doing It!

     The annual CCL Electric Holiday Tour has always been an excuse for the formerly acoustic stalwarts to let their hair down and play a little rock’n’roll along with the acoustic music that has made them famous across the globe.  For over a decade now the boys from CCL have taken their setlist and enlivened it with some choice AM radio gold in honor of the passing of another year.  Now that they normally perform with drums and electric & pedal steel guitars, the Holiday Tour takes on a new significance as an expanded Modern CCL lineup.  With a little help from Jay Brown (Bass) and recording artist in his own right Johnny Irion (Guitar, Piano, Vocals) they will take to stages across NC and VA and throw one heck of a party with songs from the CCL canon and some great covers to have a little fun.  


See you this Weekend!

Getting back to Live Music has been a reassuring blast ladies and gentlemen.  Thanks to everyone for putting us on their calendars and making the scene.  We only have a few shows left this year so we hope to see you if you are able.  This weekend finds us in Greer, SC and Yadkinville, NC.  See you there!

On the Road

Wow.  It felt amazing to get out in the world and play a few shows on the road, sleep in strange environs and put some miles on the van.  We have to say that everything felt really responsible and safe.  The crowds are well behaved and everyone is respecting everyone else's personal space, or maybe we just have the most awesome fans in the world, who knows!  If you are still reticent to venture out, we will be live-streaming our concert next Wednesday Night from the World Famous Caffe Lena.  See y'all soon!

Oxford American : Landmark Sessions

Why it feels like yesterday that we entertained a hearty group in Little Rock, AR.  The fine folks at Oxford American (it's a magazine, awesome one!) filmed our performance and have got some videos up to share.  Enjoy!
