We are heading to Sturgis. Yes, it's in South Dakota and we could not be more excited. August is full of shows for us and the week of the 5th thru the 12th is going to be epic. Take a look at this video produced by our friend and the organizer, Jason Wilson...
This video explains the whole thing but I thought we'd better mention it. The Harley Davidson Hall of Fame and Museum is going to be rockin'. When we get back we will have tons of photos and maybe some videos to share. Keep an eye out for those.
So Saturday, June 10th was a crazy day to say the least. We played a show in Springville, UT. at Legends Vintage Motorcycles. Legend’s is a motorcycle shop and museum which has a wildly cool collection of vintage and new Harley Davidson and Indian motorcycles. I myself really enjoyed looking at the awesome bikes. They also have a nice café called The Side Car Café and a full service bike shop. Such a cool place and even cooler people.
This day was special though. Legend’s hosted a rally to raise funds for the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame in Sturgis, South Dakota. They had booths and vendors from all over and there was a ride that ended there with over 200 motorcycles and classic cars. One of the organizers, Jason Wilson, had us and Tim Cord of American Hitmen play some music to provide entertainment. The day was warm but not too hot and a little breezy but totally bearable. We played from noon to almost 2pm when the local motorcycle police put on a safety and riding demons...
So last Sunday, May 21, we went on the KBER 101.1 radio show Salt Lake Soundcheck with Corky. Man what a great time. Corky played three of our songs and we had three long segments of interview, answering questions and general goofing off.
The whole thing was posted on Facebook Live thanks to the skilled wielding of the phone by Adam and 'fan boy' Josh. Corky is the epitome of radio professionalism while still being incredibly awesome. Also, Corky has been to so many of our shows he seems to be a staple in our fan-base. Can't thank him enough. Check out the in-studio videos and listen to KBER, especially the Salt Lake Soundcheck. He plays great local music and hosts the best of local music and I think I can speak for our local music base. We really appreciate him.
Okay, we finally have our debut, self-titled album coming out. Here's the deets on the poster. In a nutshell, Saturday, May 13, 2017 at Ice Haüs in Murray Utah. Dan Cord (American Hitmen) and Chandra share a birthday on that day, so it's a double b-day celebration and the American Hitmen gave us the green light to release our CD at this show.
So besides all that, Randy Beasterfield and his new band are playing, Ghost of a Giant. Randy owner and engineer at his self owned Beast Recordings, mixed and recorded the entire album and did a great job. We had Andy Vandette do the mastering.
We could not be more excited to share this with the world, in general and our loyal fans in personal.
Get ready for a rockin' good Saturday night. We are playing with our friends Opal Hill Drive on the Ice Haüs stage. It's Springtime and the weather is getting nice. This is just the next show in a Spring and Summer line-up that we will be playing at. Keep up with us on Facebook and here on our website. April, May, June and August shows are already lining up. You can bet we'll be playing somewhere awesome in July too.
Don't forget about our CD release coming up too. On the radar for the first part of May.
Played Kamikazes in Ogden last night with Royal Bliss and My Private Island. Totally drank from the large fan base that Royal Bliss brings. They know how to pack a venue and it was a huge rush to play to a crowd so large enhanced by a large group of our fans. While we played we had a bunch of our own fans singing along and emphatically feeding our energy. Wanna thank all of you. Take a look at the interview above we did with Harry Lam, and check out his YouTube channel, BackStage Pass presented by Work In Progress. Give him a like and a subscribe. He is really a fantastic promoter of local and touring artists.
So the American Hitmen are on a short tour through the Middle-East and Europe. Sound like some of their luggage was lost in the travel but they still look awesome. Especially Dave, sporting the GnG t-shirt and making it look good. Hope he doesn't have to wear it for too many days in a row... could get ripe pretty quick in Egypt.
So Friday night was awesome. The Utah Music Festival seemed to be a hit. We took the stage at The Royal at about 11:30pm and rocked till they kicked us out. Meaning, just before last call. It’s always so much fun to play to so many of our friends and make new ones along the way. The opening act was The Cold Year. Really cool three-piece band, killing it with some wild rhythms and a signature megaphone mounted on a mic stand. Then
Skye took the stage. What an awesome stage presence she has. Totally digging her look and sound. They were short a drummer so they ran digital drum tracks. It was really interesting to see them pull it off, and they did. It was really cool. I am hoping the Utah Music Festival has us back next year.
Next up: St. Patrick’s Day Weekend. March 18th, we are playing with Royal Bliss at Kamikaze’s in Ogden. I have never been to Kamikaze’s but from what Jesse and Steve were saying it is a pretty cool venue with a spacious stage and lots of room for people to dance and...
LOOK OUT!!! Spring is coming and so are tons of more shows featuring us! Your favorite local band. The Utah Music Festival is going on this March 2nd thru the 5th. We are playing March 3rd, at The Royal with Skye and The Cold Year.
