Garzone said he has no timetable for an official Divey album release but will continue playing out as a foursome. Garzone plays drums with a local all-star band of sorts called Burlapen, featuring Rachel Jorgensen, Mike Samos, Diane O’Connor, and Sean Kennedy. And he will work with local singer-songwriter Jesse Burdick at the Columbus later this summer. But, with a full band behind him, Garzone sounds cautiously optimistic.
“Jaded by being in bands since I was a teenager, I’m not sure if anything lasts, but I like the minds that I have surrounded myself with,” he said. “Everyone’s a believer and that takes a lot of heart. Divey is a band now.”

Murphy’s Law serving free Rice Cakes!
Speaking of the Columbus Theatre, the Rice Cakes have been laying down tracks for their next release there and were handpicked by Knox-Miller to perform as one of the headlining acts at the inaugural “Newport Homegrown” showcase at the Folk Festival. Roz Raskin, Justin Foster, and Casey Belisle have been on a helluva roll since walking off with the WBRU Rock Hunt crown last year. The Rice Cakes will play an intimate (and free) thank-you show for fans at Murphy’s Law (formerly the Ground Round, where Foster was a longtime employee) next Thursday. ^
