Welcome to the musical homestead of Vernam and Connie Cipher.  We’ve been playing and singing together for more than 10 years at gigs on what Dad jokingly dubbed “The Planned Obsolescence Tour.” Happily, Connie is having the last laugh now that she’s all grown up and prone to stealing the show.

NEW:  The singin’ Ciphers will perform at Windy Acres Farm noon to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 23, in the tranquil environs of this beautiful family farm in Geneva. It’s open to the public, with fun activities for kids. And apple cider donuts. “Do-nut” mind if I do!

RECENT:  Connie and Vernam continued their busy summer schedule with the Downers Grove Farmers’ Market on the Saturdays of July 9, August 6, and October 1 from 9:00 a.m. to noon.

We played at the beloved Great American Bagel in Westmont and Western Springs on July 17, August 14, and September 18. Con and Dad have been playing at GAB since 2004, and we’re so grateful to have such special memories there.

Our annual show at the Downers Grove Classic Car Nights was Friday, July 8, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Main St. Metra station. Expect lots of train songs.

Connie and Vernam returned to BuckleDown Brewing (8700 47th St. in Lyons) from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. on Friday, July 22.
