UPCOMING TOUR, NEW BAND, AND OTHER NEWS!!!
I was looking at my site ad realized that I haven’t written any blog entries for quite awhile and it looks like that means I’m breaking one of the first rules of social marketing: always update your blog entries! I guess my friend Geoff, a media savvy kinda guy, would be pretty disappointed in me.
So here goes my first entry in a long time.
I have a few things to announce: I am part of a great little instrumental surf trio, going by the name The Reverb Raiders, with a couple great musicians from Montreal; Hugo Joyal(Jaguar guitar) and Olivier Pomerleau(upright and electric bass).
We have done some great shows up to this point and we have some really cool shows coming up in the next few weeks that are definitely worth checking out.
Here the poster for the upcoming show on November 17th at The Bull Pub in Montreal:
You can read and see more about us by going to our various sites:
I have also begun playing with a great Toronto band called Dany Laj and The Looks. You may have heard of them. Its a solid little power pop trio that is making great waves throughout Canada. I started by playing a few fill ins at Barfly on St. Laurent, and now they need a sub to head out on an eastern tour with them from November 19-25. They asked me, and I gladly accepted.
Check out my tour dates to see where and when we are playing, and click here: danylaj.com to see all upcoming shows and details that they have going on!
Some other recent news as well:
I filmed a great little video with The Jimmyriggers for our song ‘Sleepwalking’ off the latest album ‘I Stand In The Weeds’. It was a great shoot and we filmed it at our favourite watering hole Grumpys bar. I will be sure to mention when it debuts.
Other than a whole lot of great shows throughout the summer and fall; I dont have a whole lot more to report. Thanks for following along with my whole free-thinking-writing, and please feel free to leave as many comments as you want. Otherwise I feel like I’m writing this thing to no-one. Heh heh.
Here is the video portion of my appearance with The Jimmyriggers in Montreal on The Kaufman Show, 990 AM on March 19th, 2012. It was a great interview, and a lot of fun. We had a blast!
So here we are smack dab in the start of a new year and I find myself asking; “Where did last year go?? I was just getting into the swing of things!!”.
Well; alot has happened and I cant help but be proud of my accomplishments. I ended a great run of tour managing my old ladies band Ladies Of The Canyon, I joined a great pop rock band Exit 451, a killer award winning rock band by the name of Ceramony, finished the demo for my classic country band The Marshalls, and become the semi-permanent drummer for The Jimmyriggers.
I hope that I will be able to offer more consistent blogging as well, offering more up to date news, event invites, pictures, and plenty of tidbits of information for all of you out there. Feel free as well to let me know when you are interested in anything new, or if you just havent heard from me in awhile.
As well; tell all your friends and feel free to leave as many comments as you would like. I will do my best to get back to you as often as I can.
