The first video in this series features a local singer/songwriter, Matt Jones and Lacey Lake, from Matt Jones and the Reconstruction.

We shared a few stories, talked Springsteen, battled the rain, had a couple Two Hearted Ales, broke the porch swing and played a few intense games of foosball. Oh, and we recorded some great music too.
