We are The Argonauts sail the seven seas play funk a lot like a record get into the groove the things you hear about us well they got to be true

The Argonauts are a Pittsburgh funk blues rock band who released their self-titled debut album earlier this year and who have a couple members (Dale and Joe) who host an acoustic brunch open mic every third Sunday from 11:30-2pm at The Bridge Music Bar in East Liberty. This Sunday (December 18) features friends of the blog Carrie Collins and David Hipchen as featured performers. I want to thank Dale Mangold (Tenor Saxophone/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
