We are in the news in Egypt!

As we continue to prepare for our tour, you'll be interested to know that the Augie Band is making press in Egypt!

Here is a link to the latest story in the Al Ahram Weekly.  Watch the Sioux Falls Argus Leader for a special story about the group on Monday, January 3.

In addition, the cultural attache of the US Embassy in Cairo is working on promoting our appearances.  Contacts have also been made with the American University in Cairo as well as through other organizations and the work of WingsEgypt, our local tour coordinator.

With the gloom of yet another South Dakota snowstorm on the horizon for the New Year, the balmy warmth of Egypt sounds even better with each passing day............!   Ten days to go!


  1. As an experienced Augie Band traveller, may I join you? ;P

    Have a wonderful trip!
