On the road again!
Man does it feel good to be back in the van. Everyone else is sleeping--our first show is in Pittsburgh so that meant an early call time and a long day of driving. I'm enjoying it though: Levon Helm's Dirt Farmer is on the speakers as the never ending Ohio scenery rolls by. Our hearts are heavy with news of Levon's passing, not to mention the death of the great Andrew Love of the Memphis Horns. We'll definitely be listening to a lot of The Band and Stax records on this run. It's an exciting time for the band. We finally have a new record to show the world and the response has been great. College and AAA radio stations are spinning tracks and blogs have had some kind words thus far. We'll keep posting the press on our twitter and FB accounts so stay tuned.
First up: the Thunderbird Cafe in Pittsburgh with New Orleans sax master Khris Royal & Dark Matter. This is a great way to start the tour. Let's go!
