GREAT TURN-OUT FOR OUR SHOWS!
Well, our shows went very well this weekend, Thursday at Soho Coctail Lounge and Friday at 6-Strings. The turn-outs were great and everyone stayed til the end of our set.
Thanks very much to everyone who showed up. We really appreciate that! Thanks also to the venues and to Jo Hobo Witness for playing with us on Thursday.
The 6-Strings show was twice the fun because I played with both of my bands, including my side-project, "Like a Hurricane," which is a Neil Young Tribute Band that we like to call "A Celebration of Neil Young's Electric Side." We play the best of Neil's harder rocking electric tunes, as the name implies.
I love Neil Young as a songwriter, and my personal sound has been compared to Neil so many times over the years, that I couldn't even begin to count. So the music comes very natural to us, , and thus, people like the music and the sound.
The bottom line is it is fun because I love Neil's songs. We are our own opening act for the Alexx shows which works really well. This project has Dave Richey on guitar, Richard Gerome on drums, and me on lead vocals and bass. I love to play bass too!
We will be announcing more shows soon. Thank for checking out my Reverbnation page. You should always click "Play All" above the song list and listen to the cd while you're here unless you're watching the videos. (More videos coming very soon.)
Thanks again for your support! PEACE! :)
DON'T DO THE CRIME (Censored)

DON'T DO THE CRIME IF YOU CAN'T DO THE FU*KING TIME!"
Check out Dont Do the Crime by Alexx. Real life sh*t, thrown down hard and loud like a mother*ucker! Written by me when I was in the business. Recorded 5 miles from hell and the murder capitol of the world, Juarez Mexico. All instruments (except drums,) and all vocal tracks were performed by me personally, so you know it rocks like a mother*ucker! ;)
FLOORING BY ALEX AND ALEX!
Well friends, like many musicians, I have a day job, or rather a business to support myself as I work hard to get our music off the ground.
My business, Flooring by Alex and Alex is also home to "The Dungeon," where we create and rehearse our music. We sell all types of floors, including wood, tile, laminate and carpet.
I am not new to the flooring business, but rather have done it most of my life.
My business philosophy is simple: In order to be a good business deal, BOTH PARTIES MUST BENEFIT!
With this in mind, I help you select great products, with the most value for your money, and if you choose to have us do the installation, I personally see that you are well taken care of by our crews, and we have an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau.
So please support our music, by purchasing your floors from us. I will personally make sure you and our business benefit from the deal, making it a win-win situation.

Today's A Beautiful Day!
Well, yesterday wasn't so great. Bad news in the morning, electricity went out in The Dungeon, and on the whole block, forcing us to cancel reherasal, etc.
The good thing......that was yesterday. Today's a better day! Sun is shining bright in El Paso, and the future still looks quite bright!
I haven't had time, but now I'm finally getting out to book some more gigs. We should have some new dates, hopefully by next week. I'll keep you posted.
The music is going great. I've written quite a few new songs, and we're starting to rehearse them with the band. My band is liking the new songs, so I'm sure the public will too, because my bandmates have critical ears, and know good music.
We will likely begin recording the follow-up CD to Escaping the Dungeon in the fall. The plan for the spring and summer is to play, play and play some more, as we continue to seek out a record deal with a good label. That's always a longshot, but we have some good things going for us, so we may just get lucky and hit. Really if we can just get one song to take off in a big way the rest will follow.
Well that's about all for now, because I can't make long blog entries on this site. For all the scoop, go to my Alexx's Music Blog on my Official Website, www.alexxofficialmusic.com. There's about 7 months of blog entries dating back to the Escaping the Dungeon release last July.
Thanks for your interest and support of my music. I sincerely appreciate it, and appreciate all of you!

ALEXX'S SUNDAY 1/13/12 BLOG
This week is off to an amazing start and it just keeps getting better! Well where do I start?
Hmm, well first of all a huge thanks to my friend Glen Garza and to KLAQ 95.5 FM Radio (www.klaq.com,) El Paso, Texas. My music will once again be featured on KLAQ'S Q-Connected show, which airs tonight (Sunday January 13th,) from 10 pm to midnight, Mountain Standard Time (9pm PST, 11pm CST, and Midnight EST.) They have been very supportive, especially Glen, and I cannot thank them enough. Tune in to hear a bunch of great new music, including some great El Paso rock bands!
Secondly, much thanks to TJ Clark, of Museboat Radio, Independent Music Radio. My song Long Way to the Top will be featured on her show, TJ's Muse Bridge on Museboat Radio, at www.museboat.wix.com. She has featured my music before, and continues with another of my songs, so please log on to check out her show. It will begin today at 2pm PST, 3pm MST, 4pm CST, 5pm EST.)
Thirdly, I'm up to 500 likes on my Facebook Artist Page, www.facebook.com/alexxofficialmusic. I'll be much happier when it hits 500,000, but 500 is a great start, and I am grateful for that. A sincere thanks to all 500 of you who have liked my page, and I encourage the rest of you to do so. Every like really does make a difference!
Rehearsals are going great for my solo act, Alexx, and we've begun working on a Neil Young Tribute Band on the side, called Like a Hurricane. The line-up is set for that act. We will be the opening act for most of the Alexx shows, and also play the casino circuit for fun and money. At this point, we can actually get paid more for the tribute band in most cases, and we all have bills to pay. More importantly, I love Neil's music and it is fun to play his songs. People often compare my music and songs to him, so it kind of makes sense, and the songs come to us easily and sound good. For me, although the solo stuff is higher priority, the more I play, the happier I am, and it just makes me a better, more well rounded musician. These things are the motivation for the tribute.
