Shows in 2011, Los Angeles, and Writing/Recording
Well, kids, we raised a nice little bundle for Project H.O.M.E. the other night at The Note in West Chester, PA - so thank you to everyone who helped contribute to its success, including WMMR's Pierre Robert, Kobbie who donated a pinstriped and handpainted guitar and poster for the event to be raffled, and all the bands who joined us! Next , we've already been writing and rehearsing since the other day. We have two new ones completed for demoing as soon as possible, and we have about 3-5 more songs in the ideas stages right now, but begun musically. Good stuff. So, we're staying super busy this holiday season to hit the New Year with a bang for you. We plan on making it a great start on January 7th at The Hard Rock Cafe in Philly.
