Drunken streetwalker, Sabbath Hawks, fell out of boxcar outside of a nearby, dry county when she met the traveling salesman, Lamont Boles. He was out on bail for mysterious charges involving a small ectotherm and a brass quartet, the records for which have mysteriously disappeared, when they decided to devise their master stroke: hoodwink the corrupt Reverend Thurgood Calhoun to plunder his spoils.
Disguised in choir robes, Lily picked the locks with her hat pins. The hungover duo infiltrated his holy hidey-hole only to find Calhoun's illegal still and an evil, underground nun-brothel. In a fit of fury, Sabbath Hawks flew at the altar and subdued Calhoun using only his clerical collar and a strategic spray of holy water, but was knocked unconscious by a sinister raven that careened from an organ pipe.
Meanwhile, Lamont had surreptitiously descended back into the nun dungeon. Unable to resist the sirens, things seemed mildly grim for Lamont until his trusty she-wolf burst in the church and began to rend his appendages. Regaining his senses, Lamont donned the collar and commanded the zombie nun whores.
The she-wolf had graciously begun to thrash Lily's feet to rouse her when Lamont entered with a trail of hypnotized harlots. Bruised and blood-soaked, the pair proclaimed Lamont the new fraudulent Reverend and they vowed to empty the still and bring in as much cash as possible to make their getaway.
Before they left, they saved the town with their zombie army by serving the whiskey to every citizen ending toothaches, temporary insomnia, 8 people's virginity, 2 marriages, and those horrible potholes on Burgundy St. They then formed a band.

The Crow Quill Night Owls:
The Crow Quill Night Owls were formed in 2007 by musician / archivist Kit "Stymee" Stovepipe, and tenor banjo/ vocalist Windy City Alex. In 2011 multi instrumentalist Baylin Adaheer was added to the group as a washtub bassist.
The group plays a mix of early blues, jazz, pop songs, ragtime, jug band, and hillbilly music from the 1920's and 30's. They also put their love of old silent films, comics, and bizarre cartoons of the past into the original artwork they create for their albums.
Both Garden of Joy albums featured Kit "Stymee " Stovepipe as the main guitarist, playing with folks like John Sebastian, David Grisman and Dan Hicks. The first of the two was nominated for a Grammy. as 2009's best traditional blues album.
The Crow Quill Night Owls have played from west coast to east coast, on street corners, at festivals, in rundown bars, house shows, big concert halls, and down in the subways. They've been performing strange early American Music on makeshift and traditional instruments since as early as 2001.
