Greetings 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
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 play ICAC 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.

The Legendary Dobbs - Feb. 2nd,
ICAC Hall - Feb.
There are some new songs in the works. Some of
you may have heard one or two of them at 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
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.
Finally, 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.
everybody! Hope to see you soon.
