*Yes, Virginia, it's true. After XXXmas 2009, Rob, Joey & the boys plan to put The Squirrels Live Unit on indefinite hiatus, meaning at least as a full time, working live band.

Of course, the Squirrels as a project will continue to roll on, with more Bootlegs, possible live DVDs, & more studio work still to come.

Not to mention the inevitable "Reunion Shows"... I mean, NEVER say "NEVER".

THANK YOU ALL!!! We love you!
