Third Wheel release date

The Third Wheel finally has a release date posted at According to the site, the DVD - featuring a Wendy & Lisa score - will be released April 20. It's been a long wait for the movie, which entered post-production in 1999, so let's keep our fingers crossed.

What's up with January 30?

A few fans have asked what's up with Wendy's cryptic comment about January 30. As captured on video by Lisa and posted at, Wendy asks "Would everybody [addressing those in the Family Jamm rehearsal] be into doing that? Can everyone kind of, just, in their mind's eye, look at January 30 in their minds and see whether or not they'd be into doing it? And then we'll try to get more people, like, interested in the, uh, the hit factor of that . . . "

See the 'rehears-o-pan' on the video section of to see for yourselves. We'll work on getting more information (preferably with fewer pronouns and more nouns . . . )

Year in Review - 2003

On the Small Screen

2003 proved to be a banner year for Wendy & Lisa in more than one way. They continue to score NBC's Crossing Jordan, for which they won another ASCAP award. The ASCAP award honors composers who have written themes and or underscores for the highest rated series during Jan 1st-Dec 31st, 2002. Crossing Jordan will return in March 2004, after a year-long hiatus while its star Jill Hennesey gave birth to her first child in 2003.

Also high on the to do list is their continuing involvement with HBO's Carnivale (Sundays). Set in the 1930's, this 12-part series follows a traveling carnival across the dust bowl. HBO has recently requested more episodes, so looks like the girls may have another steady gig to count on.

On the Movie Front

During 2002/2003 we saw the release of such movies as Juwanna Mann and The Third Wheel. Neither were commercial successes, but none the less were scored by Wendy & Lisa. Look for Juwanna Mann at a rental store near you.

Prince Charming was a made for TV movie that had the honors of being scored by Wendy & Lisa. The movie premiered on TNT for all those interested.

Next up for Wendy is the movie Cavedweller with Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon. It's an adaptation from the book of the same name by Dorothy Allison. Word is that filming is set to start in July 2004 in Toronto with Wendy's "friend" Lisa Cholodenko (High Art, Laurel Canyon) directing. Can't wait to hear the music being composed for that movie. . . .

And on Stage!

Last but certainly not least, the end of 2003 saw what many Wendy & Lisa fans have been awaiting patiently for almost 20 years -- the reunion of The Revolution. On Dec 13 2003, Sheila E and her Lil Angel Bunny Foundation, produced an all-star fund raiser to help build what will be known as the Compassion Care Center. The line up included such artists as Sheila E, Patti Labelle, Members of The Time, Apollonia, The Family, Chaka Kahn, Jill Jones, Miko Weaver, various members of Sheila E's bands and of course The Revolution.

This night marked the first time in almost 20 years that the original members of The Revolution have played together. Commanding the stage like the guiding light that she is, Wendy lead the Revolution in "Mountains", "Anotherloverholeinyohead", "Purple Rain", "America", "Pop Life", "Raspberry Beret" and then "Baby I'm a Star" as the finale. The Revolution kicked ass as only they could -- from Lisa back in her 'apartment' to Bobby Z doing his thing with the kick-drum. This girl thought she was back in the 80's watching the Purple Rain tour, only this time I was front and center and it didn't smell like pot. Oh the joys of adulthood!! Honestly though, I think they all have never sounded better. According to Bobby, most of it was due to Wendy. He gave her all the credit for them sounding so good and for getting them all together. He beamed as he spoke of her. I was able to take some pictures from the show that will be posted as soon as possible. It was truly a night to remember.

A Few Associate Outings

As if 2003 didn't keep Wendy & Lisa busy enough, 2003 also saw the release of several albums with Wendy guest contributions, including Liz Phair's self titled 4th album, and Lisa Germano's Lullaby for a Liquid Pig.
