One of the real treats for us is being able to stay in the historic Munger Moss Motel in Lebanon, Missouri.   We’ll be in Lebanon playing for the Route 66 festival as part of our tour, and we’re quite stoked about being able to stay here.

The Munger Moss won the 2006 Business of the Year award from the Route 66 Preservation association, and it’s a well deserved award for them.  Everyone I’ve talked to that has stayed there has had a fabulous stay.

The Munger Moss opened in 1946, and has been maintained in pristine condition with a fabulous neon sign and Route 66 themed rooms.  It promises to be a great stay there!

You can find out more about The Munger Moss by checking out their website, which is located here.


Just a quick update. 🙂
First of all, the Indy Kicks It tour got a mention on the Lebanon/LaClede county Route 66 Society website and hope y’all will take a moment and check it out!
Secondly, Gabrielle, the photographer/journalist who is going on the trip with us came across the website Global Freeloaders which is a site where folks exchange/offer housing for travelers.  It’s a GREAT idea and we’re going to take a look at it for folks who might live on or close to the route.

One of the things that we’re going to be looking at during this trip is the old time busking lifestyle…that of musicians and minstrels who travelled from town to town, performing and finding places to sleep whever they could.  This site could be very valuable to us.

We hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend….Holly and I spent it in small towns in Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia.  You can read a bit more about that trip here.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

We’ve booked our first two shows along the way…if you’re in the area, we’d love to have you join us!
