Keep On Truckin'  plays Classic Rock, Blues & R&B with emphasis on the greatest decade of rock music from the mid 60's through mid 70's. Their sound is a diverse, modern blend of Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Beatles, Stones, BB King, ZZ Top, Joe Cocker, CCR, CSN&Y, Santana, Jimi Hendrix and other influential bands of that era. Tight rhythms and soulful vocal melodies flow from every corner. Take a step back in time and enjoy the music that influenced a generation.

Hello Art Friends~

We have so much to share this month...we are bursting! But first we want to send out a sincere THANKS and huge appreciation to Nevada County. The support we have received has been beyond phenomenal; we are so grateful and are just so thrilled to be on this journey! With that said, we have a lot to celebrate.....

First, we have finally received our 501(c) (3) non-profit status from the IRS! Yippee!! It has been a long process but we feel that this step will enable us to expand our vision of providing art in the lives of so many that would not have been able to enjoy it otherwise. 

Next, we have opened a new studio that will allow us to offer more classes with more local artists! Please join us at our Open House, see details below. While we are still a mobile art studio, we envision this to be another creative space in which to collaborate with the community.

As I think back on my first ten years as Executive Director of The Friendship Club in some ways I can't believe where the time has gone.  On the other hand, I feel like I am just getting started!  In ten years we have moved our location to our current site where we can welcome 90 girls a week in two spacious classroom, large kitchen, and library.  We have grown our staff then shrunk again, then grown it back to the place it needs to be to fully realize our program goals.  We have faced both financial challenges and been overwhelmed by our community's support. The staff has birthed seven babies in ten years and we have juggled being short staffed every year save one....2011 was a great year!! We have rethought, revised, retooled, and revamped every component of our program, making sure to take care of the girls as their changing needs presented themselves.  We have seen 56 of our girls graduate high school as active members of The Friendship Club with over 85% of them going on to college.  We have touched the lives of over 500 girls in Nevada County and we know our reach now has gone far beyond our community's borders.  Our oldest girl is 31 years old and girls live in 10 states.
