Wayside fans! Happy New Year! Rob here. Tons of news afoot.
For starters, Chris got married a few days after Christmas.
Congrats to Chris & Maureen, and sorry, ladies.
With some of that wedding and holiday money, Chris went
out and got himself an electric guitar amp. Chris pretends to mainly be an acoustic
guitar player, but anyone who has seen him shred on a Telecaster knows otherwise.
He’ll be debuting the new amp and effects pedal setup at upcoming gigs, so
come out and hear him test drive some fat and funky sounds.
Speaking of gigs, we’ve got a few. We return to the
main stage of The Legendary Dobbs on Feb 2 at 10 pm. A week later, on Feb 9, we
Hall in Gloucester City, around 8 pm. After that, we’re back in Philly
to play an acoustic gig at Manny Brown’s on Friday, March 1, and then we’ll
be on stage at Connie’s Ric Rac on March 30 at 10 pm.

other shows, some which will be hitting the stage for the first time at one of these
gigs. Come on out and let us know what you think.
got so many new tunes, we’re looking to play some slightly longer sets. The
livehouses around town will give us 45 minutes, and our acoustic gigs rely heavily
on covers. If you’ve got a living room, a backyard, a garage, or a basement,
and you’d like to invite 50 of your friends over to watch us stretch our legs
and let the jams roll, drop us a line. With Chris shredding and Eric working his
magic on keys, we can melt some portion of your face for, I don’t know, somewhere
between 90 minutes and 3 hours. We might even take a request.
what do bands do when they start putting together new songs? You guessed it. They
make an album. We’ll be heading into the studio in mid-Feb to start laying
down tracks, and we hope to have a whole mess of new material by summer, so stay
tuned for that. It’s time. We are due.
Thanks everybody! Hope to see you soon.
