Adios Amigos! We are about to hit the road for a quick spin out west. This Thursday 5/23, Dylan and I will be in Grosse Pointe, Michigan at The Whiskey Six to say our goodbyes at 8pm. We would love to see you all!
After that we head out - Its two for the road and a handful of dates with the band in Texas, before we start heading north again. We will wrap things upright here in Michigan on June 30th where Dylan will be representing Reverend Guitars at a clinic for the Michigan Guitar Show and we will be having a little afterglow party as well - details to be announced soon.
For Details on tour dates - please click our tour dates link at the top of our website or visit us on Facebook. Feel free to reach out through email with any questions. We love hearing from you!
Thank you to all who attended our event at Valentine Distilling last week. The events we have put on there have been a labor of love for our friends and fellow musicians. The support you've shown has meant the world. Its been my personal goal to offer memorable, intimate shows here in SE Michigan as often as I can in a space that is comfortable and free from distractions - just music and good people in a nice environment - and to offer a gateway to the millions of people in southeast Michigan that don't get out to shows.
I've personally been inspired by listening rooms, some private, across the country that provide the infrastructure and cultivate a fan base for small to big name acts, giving us little guys an a leg up to keep the van rolling. At the same time I've often been disappointed to see artists that can sell out venues in other parts of the country pass up our area because they can't find a right sized room for their smaller fan base here - and they pass us up until they are on their way to the Grammy stage.
I've been blown away so often by the love and support of venue owners and music fans that offer a respite on a Monday in a backroom, a workshop or small bar thats been converted into a musical speakeasy. I always come home with a dream to host intimate shows like that here in SE Michigan in a space that is comfortable and free from distractions - just music and good people in a nice environment - and to offer a gateway into the independent music scene to a few of the millions of people in southeast Michigan that don't go out to shows.
As many of you know I am not one to let an idea die; I have to give it legs.But, Dylan and I are also swamped with the behind the scenes work it takes to keep us on the road, making a living and hopefully building our fanbase. After planning, finding sponsors and doing PR for large scale events I can definitively say - I take on too much and need that work load like I need a hole in the head.
This is why your attendance and the support of our friends at Valentine have been so appreciated. You all have created the atmosphere be being there and I cant thank you enough. I'm also beyond grateful to Valentine for allowing us to use their space, setting up and staffing the room for our events, and being a life line, pitching in and offering support where they don't have to.
If you want us to hold more events like these please, make sure you let us know. And more importantly if YOU have any interest in hosting a music event let me know - I will help you any way I can.
Thank you again and see you down the road.
