Just give Whitt a call 765-661-3033 or e-mail whit46952@yahoo.com or pp_dickey@yahoo.com We have just about finished recording our first full length CD, "The Elixirs "Long Gone"" Our hope is to have it out early this summer, we are taking our time, keeping it real! In hopes of making a CD you feel! 19 songs are done musically, we still have some lead and backing vocals to track, and mixing and mastering to finish.... then it's off to production! We want to thank some of the Great Promoters who are helping us get on the bill opening for national acts, headlining shows in major cities, booking us out of town, and helping us work our way into cool bars that support original music! These fine folks typically do it for the love, as they don't charge us a dime and rarely make one! Lazy Hawk Promotions, Retro Max Promotions, The Detroit Psychobilly Alliance, MP Productions up in Chicago, Heavy Rebel Productions... These are good people who work hard doing and promoting something they love, "Real Original American Music", support what they do every chance you get! Thanks to you, our friends and fans, without your support, our shows would not be nearly as much fun, and we would most likely continue the slow PBR induced demise in the garage with our instruments and our thoughts slowly and steadily driving us to madness! See YOU Soon! Whitt... Don't forget to Like Us on Facebook, Reverbnation, Punkrockers.com... these are our primary sources of communication... it is easy for us to post shows, events, photos, new music, and merchandise... keeping YOU up to date on what we are working to do!
