We’d like to thank all of you for your support this year. I know I speak for the band when I say how grateful I am to be playing music for you. It’s been a great year for us. Here are just a few of the highlights; teaming up with Chicken Ranch Records to re-release Weirdo, playing SXSW for the first time since 2004, recording with Patterson Hood of the Truckers, releasing our song for Katrina, “The Flood”, continuing to record the new album, the Weirdo documentary, and of course just playing music in cities we haven’t played in over ten years. At every show I’ve had people come up to me and tell me stories about what we have meant to them. That has meant so much to me.
I wanted to list some of what has made all the difference this year; our families, our friends, our pets, and all of our influences (musical and otherwise), the instruments that we play, our new van and trailer, Doug Rasmussen, Michael Dickinson, David Barbe, Marc Pilvinsky, Patterson Hood, Brad Roell, Christian Lopez, Nick Elliot, Dave Domizi, John Neff, Mike Albanesse, Michael VanHassel, Dan Mistich, the other bands the we play with, the sound men everywhere, all of the players that have gone to the great gig in the sky… and as I sit at the kitchen table I am over come with wonder at it all.
I wanted to make sure I said it.
PS, Our final gig for 2015 is set for Saturday Dec 12th at the Syndicate Lounge in Birmingham AL with the band Royal & Toulouse!! And we are giving away our Black Album when you make a purchase through
