New Release “Second Start Acoustic EP” Now Available For Free

Posted By Mr. Hand on November 13th, 2013

Download our new digital only release “Second Start Acoustic EP” for FREE through Simply click on the “FREE DOWNLOAD” button above or listen to the tracks by clicking the play button!

In 2010 we released our 5th album “Second Start“. During the writing and recording process of that album we always felt that it would be interesting to record alternate “unplugged” versions. Now 3 years later we’re finally realizing that idea with 3 songs from that album! Initially we had planned to only make these recordings available as a limited release to members of our mailing list. But based on the response and support from our fans, we decided to release this digital EP to everyone for free through NoiseTrade.

1. 20 More Ways
2. Second Start
3. New Fix

Included in this digital EP you’ll receive the 3 song files and artwork.

If you like what you hear, we encourage you to share these songs with friends. Thank you!

Show Report: Divots Summerfest 2010

Posted By Mr. Hand on July 7th, 2010

We’re a little late with this report but better late than never! Summerfest this year was hot. I mean really hot. But it was totally awesome!

We were lucky enough to open the show again this year, for in our opinion the best lineup they’ve ever had – Rick Springfield, Loverboy, Night Ranger and the Rude Band. We kicked things off from the Jagermeister Stage shortly after the gates opened at 3pm and took all the sun could dish out with the 105° heat index during our set. Did I mention it was hot?

But we stood tall and rocked. The show also turned out to be the debut show for our new cd, Second Start. We finally had our finished cd’s in hand and played several songs from the cd, but most importantly we really appreciated the response from everyone who defied the heat to listen to us and buy a cd.

We have some great pictures to share…some good action shots during our set, one with the winner from our Summerfest ticket giveaway, and our friend Mike who met Rick Springfield after the show while wearing his Mr. Hand shirt proudly!

Thanks again to Shawn and the Divots staff as well as Dave and his Jagermeister Stage crew. It was a day we’ll never forget!

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…

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!
