Our cd release party/show at the Ice Haus last Saturday was one we won't soon forget...or EVER for that matter. We shared the stage with our friends American Hitmen and Ghost of a Giant.
Being mine and Dan's bday (Hitmen guitarist) the night was extra, extra yummy. It sorta felt like a birthday for G&TG too since the album was finally "birthed" ya might say. American Hitmen always slay it. We love sharing the stage with them and they're some of the best human beings you'll ever meet. Newcomer's Ghost of a Giant did a stellar job too. I say "newcomers" lightly because all members are seasoned and exceptionally talented musicians. Big shout to our man Randy Beasterfield, who plays guitar, sings and composes in this new band, who also recorded our album. We have mad love for you brother.
The fans came out in droves, mixed with family, old friends and new, they stood wall to wall and rocked us, embraced us, danced with us, laughed and cried with us. Ok maybe I'm the only one who shed a tea...
Yesterday May 3rd we had the privilege of being featured on MTN Views tv show, Park City Live with host Terry Burden. Terry and the crew were so great to us and we had an awesome time. Our favorite crew member was Mr Buddy, Terry's dog who hung out with us on set. He didn't shy away from the loud music, even a little bit. It was clear, he owned that space and we were in "his" house. ;)
This show has been a great platform for artists, musicians and business owners alike in the Utah community to connect and raise awareness. I personally appreciate Terry for his straight, honest talk, addressing tough topics on politics and current events etc. and of course, giving local artisans a chance to shine and reach the local community on a broader scale.
We can officially say, "Look Ma', I'm on TV!" and that's a pretty cool feeling. Here's the condensed version of the show, featuring our performances and interview and a few pics.
March 18th we're back at it, playing with one of the baddest bands to break out of Utah to take the country by storm. Troubadours and O.G.'s of rock n roll, Royal Bliss have invited us back to share the stage with them at Kamikaze's in Ogden for a St Patty's Day celebration. There's a pot o' gold at the end of that rainbow, so don't miss your chance to party with the leprechauns. Tickets available now at http://smithstix.com/
