Beginning with a personal message from the band to all it's loyal fan club members, this collection sparkles with new soon-to-be-classics and old gems, dusted off and distorted.

Your Tonic Ball Memory

Tonic Ball has been one of the highlights of the musical calendar. Just today my favorite barista told me that she knows the holiday is here when Tonic Ball arrives.

It struck me that we probably all have similar feelings and great experiences associated with the benefit for Second Helpings.

Here's mine, names have been changed.
