It looks like the Fighting Brothers McCarthy may be getting the band back together.

Well, sort of.

Back story: last fall, amid a fair amount of acrimony, the Brothers decided it was time for a change -- which basically meant that some of the old players quit and some weren't asked back. It was, to be honest, a little disconcerting, but in the end things have worked out really well for me. For the record, I don't bear any ill will towards anyone involved in that project.

The Brothers did try to keep moving, with a couple of shows in January. But it seemed to peter out, for reasons best left to them to explain.

I've stayed in touch with all of the old band members and Kevin. I haven't talked with Steve much. Kev told me today that he and Steve finally have gotten motivated enough to pull things back together. The Brothers are going to get together with Bryant, Travis and Hunter on Saturday "to see how things work out."

So, for all you FBM fans out there, your day is coming ...
