---------------------------------------------------------------------

The Baker Thomas Band would like to thank all of our family and friends and especially the following list of folks for being so supportive of us since this band threw itself together in March of 2009. So many wonderful people have inspired us to make great music and have a great time:

The residents that put up with all the ruckus. Tish Jarosewicz, Danielle "Thumb Of Doom" Miraglia, Christene "Texas" Fair and Joe "The Cook" Rose for all their support and tolerance of the constant banging on instruments.

The great engineers who helped with tremendous advice during the production of this record including Ryan Cecil, Jonathan Byrd, John Elliot, Joe Stewart, Joe Kay, Todd Russell, Dan Cardinal, Matt Malikowski, Tom Dube, Pam Craven and Dietrich Strause and anyone else who picked up the phone even though they knew it was probably a desperate "Uhhh... how do I..." Protools call.

All the folks who pre-ordered the disc and helped make it happen!!! We couldn't have done it without you... seriously... we didn't have the money until you bought the disc.

The good (families) staff of Lizard Lounge and TOAD in Cambridge and The Burren in Somerville as well as many other venues for providing stages and wonderful places to perform music, as well as cheap booze and food for the musicians. We like that part a bunch.

All of the great bands and peers we've shared stages with especially the Brothers McCann, who invited us along to their Harpers Ferry show as well as REUNION! Seriously, nobody brings it like these guys. Seriously

No Place Special. You know why... unless you don't. In which case, get your ass to No Place Special.

The NA-NA and TRAIN FACE SINGERS!!! Who gave up a Sunday afternoon to sing, drink, eat cake make rock and roll history, listen to Sawyer's joke about bull's balls and of course, laugh.

Dana McNally (who seriously came through for us very last minute with tremendous work and images that will stick with our band forever!) and David Maccaferri (who has shot some great pictures of us!) for their contribution to this package as well as Jamie Meditz, Todd Lehman and any other photographers I may have missed who have contributed so much to the cause! Thank you for documenting it! (...and leaving the embarrassing after party photos out of your Facebook posts, pretty much.)

Alex Hoxha and Laura Burke for their wonderful support and help with the creation of our website! We're online! We must be pros!

Tom and Maryann Bianchi, Jim and Caroline O'Hara and Danielle Miraglia. This production would not be possible without them and their support. This is a big one.

Huxley and Sawyer Lawson. They drove 4 & 1/2 hours to spend winter vacation with Dad only to be forced into the rigid child labor of singing, "Na-na-na-na-na" and "Traaaain Face" over and over, only to be paid in ice cream.

If we forgot anyone specifically, we apologize and we hope this next paragraph covers it!

A special thank you goes out to all of the wonderful people who have come to shows and jumped on the good time train that is the BTB, as well as the amazing musicians who have jumped on the stage to share some tunes with us on any given night. The spontaneous collaborative effort is how this band began and it is an aspect of what we do that we will always keep. We do not have fans. We have friends, peers and family.
