Show Report: Mt. Marty College

Posted By Mr. Hand on April 27th, 2010

Last Saturday took us to Yankton, SD to play for a Mt. Marty College event. Someone mentioned that it was their Spring Formal but there wasn’t anything too “formal” about it. Rather it was an opportunity for the students to cut loose before the barrage of finals.

We’d played at Mt. Marty several times over the years but this was the first show we’ve played for them in a few years and at an off-campus location. It was a good time for us and it seemed like the students enjoyed themselves as well.

Thanks to the school’s organizing committee for taking care of us. Also we have to thank our friend Bruce who provided sound and lighting as well as grilling up some steaks for us! If only we got fed like that before every show!

Show Report: The Depot

Posted By Mr. Hand on April 26th, 2010

We spent this past Friday at The Depot in Norfolk, NE for a one-nighter. But with the party taking place that night it felt like a typical weekend at The Depot. It’s really no surprise though as we’ve come to expect it!

We were excited for the show because we knew we’d get to play our new songs for some more of our Norfolk friends. In fact we debuted one more original called “Facing Down” as we prepare for our upcoming recording session this weekend. It’s been a great spring playing all these new original songs and getting such great response and feedback about the new songs from everyone. We really appreciate it and it’s made us very excited to record these songs and release a new CD this summer!

Show Report: The Phoenix Room

Posted By Mr. Hand on April 20th, 2010

Sometimes the last-minute, unexpected shows turn out to be the most memorable and fun. And that was the case at The Phoenix Room this last Saturday night.

As you may or may not know we had a show originally booked in Omaha that fell through, but thankfully our good friend Blake from The Phoenix Room invited us to play at his place in Norfolk. We were a little nervous about what kind of turnout we would get without being able to do much promotion, but we had a great group of die-hards show up and make the night a lot of fun!

Once again we played several of our new original songs – “The Color Blue,” “New Fix,” “On Your Own,” “Second Start,” and “20 More Ways.” We hit the studio in just under 2 weeks, so you can expect to hear these songs more and more at upcoming shows and throughout the summer shows as well!

Now on to the photos from The Phoenix Room…

Phoneix Room – last minute show added!

Posted By Bret on April 15th, 2010

Just confirmed today we’ll be playing at the Phoenix Room in Norfolk this Saturday night!

We’ve been riding the scheduling roller coaster with some recent schedule changes. As you may know we had to cancel our previously scheduled show for this Saturday at Kennedy’s Bar & Grille in Omaha. We’ll be back in Omaha in May and have some other things lined up for the summer and into the fall at the Arena Sports Bar & Grill and Two Fine Irishmen. And we’re working on getting things lined up for future dates at Kennedy’s as well.

Much thanks to Blake at the Phoenix Room for making Saturday’s show happen!

Show Report: Rhonda’s Speakeasy

Posted By Mr. Hand on April 8th, 2010

A return visit to Rhonda’s Speakeasy was in order. It had been a couple months, but playing there never felt so good. We were able to debut a few more original songs including “The Color Blue,” “Someone New,” “Second Start,” and ” New Fix.” We’re eager to get these new songs recorded but it was great being able to share them with our Sioux City friends.

All in all it was a very good weekend, we really appreciate everyone that made it out to party with us. We can’t wait to do it again! In fact, we won’t have to wait too long as we’ll be back at Rhonda’s on May 14th & 15th. Mark your calendars now!
