Thanks to everyone who came out to our first show with the new roster at the Alberta Street Pub. It was a fantastic night of music. Coby Brown and The Frequence really knocked our socks off, and made for a memorable night. Can’t wait to see you March 22nd at Secret Society!
As we near completion on our second album, I feel it’s time to introduce our new members: drummer Andy Uppendahl and bassist Justin Palmer. Both fantastic musicians, Andy and Justin are bringing different dimensions to the band. Andy, a long-time friend has drummed in such amazing groups as Five O’clock People, Careen, Top Hat, and also currently Jaycob Van Auken and the Long Drags. Justin just so happens to be my brother in law (really I consider him an actual brother), and a tremendous bassist with a background in the dark arts of metal, playing with Regiment 26 for several years. I’ve always respected both musicians, and I’m excited to have them join Nat Johnson and I on our new musical journey. Godspeed!
We had been taking a songwriting, retooling break while members of the band pursued other ventures, but now we’re back in the saddle, rehearsing and recording. We’re about 60% finished with a new LP with the working title of “Cooking Tips for New College Students”. Hmm, maybe that’s not a great title. I guess we have work to do. Stay tuned for more.
