Public Facebook post, Jan 25 2018: 

It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that we will not be performing at Wicked Faire.

My medical concerns have had the band on high alert. My cancer team has scheduled my surgery for Feb.5. Having received a call today about some less than helpful bacteria, and now needing yet one more RX, performing at a convention seems not the best idea.

My health and safety have to come first.

Then there's the elephant in the room. The enormity of accusations against JME are in direct conflict with our message of feminism, consent and anti-bullying. It was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. While our experiences with JME have never been negative, we can't overlook the voices of those brave enough to come forward. 

We will miss the fans and the friends we've built up over the years. We sincerely hope you understand why we made this decision.

Thank you for all your love and support.
