Yes, We Are Rolling!
Trust us: we know first-hand that the winter season has been intensely unkind, and long. We’re not here to complain. We’re here to let you know that things are (ok “finally”) heating up around here, thankfully.
We’re very happy to announce that we’ll be out on a mini-tour of the SE this spring, from late April to early May, to Nashville (Exit/In) and back, wrapping up with an epic Cinco de Mayo bash at Midtown Live NYC on 5/05. We’re not done adding gigs to this trip calendar just yet, but here’s where we know we’ll be as of now:
- WED 4/29 – Champion Billiards Sports Café, Frederick, MD – opening for Rick Monroe (WFRE 99.9FM “Random Acts of Country”)
- THURS 4/30 – Straightaway Café, Black Mountain, NC
- SAT 5/02 – Exit/In, Nashville, TN – The PlayOff showcase competition (Inc. Media, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum)
- SUN 5/03 – Parlay Social Club, Lexington, KY
- TUES 5/05 – Midtown Live, NYC – mother of all Cinco de Mayo fiestas
We’re looking into adding 5/02 night in Nashville, and 5/04 in PA.
Our 3rd album, Obey the Party, is in the home stretch now with our friend, and guru (and producer), Eric “Roscoe” Ambel. We love, and deeply appreciate, our friend Roscoe, and we’re very excited about Obey. It’s our best album yet, and we can’t wait to make it available. Release plans are presently uncertain, but we’ve got some great things in the works, and we’re planning on taking things up a notch…
Meanwhile, if you find yourself in need of something new, and fun, to listen to, we’d like to recommend our “SHOWS“ page: all bootleg-esque (single mic) recordings from our past shows. Audio quality may vary a bit from show to show, but any of ‘em will put a smile on your face. Includes 3/07 Plattekill Mountain Winterfest. Have at it.
A big “thank you” from all of us to everyone taking any part of this wild ride with us. Thanks for coming to our shows, listening to our music, booking us, sharing us online, playing us on your program, for the press/reviews, etc. We know that these exciting things we have to look forward to are because of you, and we’re forever deeply appreciative.
Hope to see you out there. Let’s have some fun!
