Fall festival gig coming up this evening, two new songs just finished...life is good
We just finished recording demo versions of a dozen or so tracks, and some of them will be hitting the site soon
Hey, we have a gig scheduled at the end of August at the Flying Shamrock! We'll get the gig posted shortly as soon as we make sure of all the details.
We're busy getting ready for our gig at the Red Room. We'll have some brand new songs to debut at that show, so come on out and have some fun!
We played a few songs at the WCC Spring Festival last night and had a blast. The theme was "1963" and we played Pipeline and Wipeout.
Recording of our demo CD is coming along, and, next week, we are playing the Red Room in Kinston, NC. Come on out and enjoy some tune with us!
The Pink Hill show went well, but we learned a valuable lesson. When playing an outside gig, wear sunscreen!
Work continues on our demo cd, and we played through our latest original tune yesterday. We were really happy with how it came out.
As summer and spring come on, it's serious gig hunting time.
Come on out to the Pink Hill Rose Festival and Wellness Fair. There will be lots of great food, fun for the whole family and a ton of great music, everything from bluegrass to gospel to blues and classic rock to (dare we say it) SURF!
Aunt Gladys might even be there herself to cheer us on. The only way to know is to come out and hear for yourself!
Aunt Gladys always told us that the only way to get a cd is to record some songs. She always said like she was telling us a profound truth. Of course, she also told us to eat our spinach and liver casserole because, if we tried it, we'd like it, so you can't go buy everything Aunt Gladys says. But we seem to have wandered from the point, which is that we are starting to get some recording done. We're not sure when properly recorded tunes will be up on the site, but soon, we hope. Ask Aunt Gladys. She seems to know everything.
Yes, we somehow managed to get video from our last gig which, as you will see, was on a very tiny but extremely colorful stage. New videos coming soon. Aunt Gladys would be so proud.
As the latest gig approaches, the Storm Surfers have hunkered down in an undisclosed location that is sheltered from the rain and set themselves to practice. The result is a conglomeration of tunes that would have made our Aunt Gladys proud. (You don’t know our Aunt Gladys, so perhaps making her proud is not at the top of your list of things to do, but we like her.)
In this particular set we will debut a few tunes, including classics like Surf Rider, somewhat obscure pieces like Morpheus, and three new originals which, if they have seen the light of day, have at least never seen the light of the stage.
Two more original tunes are on tap, waiting eagerly for us to actually learn how to play them as a band, and a whole host of musical oddities are sitting patiently and waiting for us to get to them.
Also, we appear to have learned how to work our new PA system. We’re hoping that hearing us better will actually be a bonus for the audience.
Onward to the next show!
