We are extremely thrilled to announce to friends and fans that this past weekend at Watermelon Park Festival we took first place in the band competition! This was a huge shock and completely unpredicted by us. We played “Its Easy” and Ryan Green’s new original (untitled, but thus far called “Baby”[hear it on our facebook wall
]). So far so good! We are hoping this will really shine new light on the hard work and progress we have been making since we began playing together in 2007. We really can not say thank you enough to all of our supporting and loving friends, fans and family that have continuously stuck by our sides through the past four years. So, again, THANK YOU.
We’re back at the band house and stretching our arms after playing an awesome weekend in Brooklyn and Newburgh, NY. The new van is purring like a kitten up and down the east coast and so far so good. Much thanks to our friends The Peeps and all their fans who were so enthusiastic about hearing our music. We really had a blast, didn’t get to see enough, and can’t wait to come back next year.
But no extended relaxation for us boys! This Friday (9/7) we’re on our way to Straussburg, VA to play Christina’s Cafe with our good buddies The Hot Seats! We can’t emphasize enough what a funky night this is bound to be. $9 (one buck per musician) will get you in the door, in a seat, and maybe into late-night madness.
The very next evening, we’re packing up the van and headed to Thomas, WV for our second performance at The Purple Fiddle! This venue truly is the perfect cap to a perfect week of playing. We don’t know where they come from given the Fiddle’s loacation, but at about 8pm, tons of people smash into this place hungry for some rocking tunes. Luckily we have been practicing some new ones and will be able to supply ears of all shapes and sizes.
We hope to see friends and new fans on the road! Much love, -GBs
