“‘All The Good Times’ perfectly describes our career,” said the band in its statement. “Playing our music for Dirt Band fans all over the world has been an incredible experience for us.

That’s the very spirit we’ll be celebrating as we head into our farewell tour. We’re really looking forward to seeing you folks. Good times will be had by all!”
