Medicine Road(Med Road for short) is going to come back again. We have not played a show since November. I have a small project I call Wildhorse, which we played a couple of small parties, and it went over very well. As a matter of fact, be looking for Wildhorse, its more of a trance psychedelic tribal house sound. Yeah! Back to Med Road, we are starting to fill our roster. If you would like us to come and rock your house, club, festival, let us know now. We dig doing small venues, because its up close and personal. I like seeing our peeps eye to eye. The connection brings the circle together. We'd love that opportunity for you to take your turn and come and dance with us. If you have seen us you know what we are about, and if you haven't, but heard our music on Reverbnation, or FB, & Youtube, well, you might see it there, but we are basically all over the map. We play every style of music(sorry, no rap), and we don't apologize to anyone for that. As a matter of fact, we love every single song we do. How could a band play music just for someone else and not themselves. Its the same as how can someone love you if you don't love yourself? Am I right? Yup, you know it. Thats the attitude we have, we love our music, therefore, we are putting out love in the most peaceful, and loving way. From our hearts. Thats the medicine. The medicine is the music, which heals the soul, nurtures the bodies need to move in a positive flow, and stimulates the brain to think about the positive change needed to heal ourselves and our planet. We are all one on this planet. When viewing the earth from a distance, we look like ants with our ant hills, living close to each other to advance our ability to survive. Every living thing on this planet is sacred. Every living thing is exactly that, living. If you value life as a huge thing, then all things fall under that huge thing, ALIVE. We will start publicizing our gigs as they come up. Thats the other beauty of our group, we also bring you visuals through graphic art posters. We will start making our poster available on line to buy at very affordable prices. We are small peanuts, but we have huge hearts, and want to spread the love. We are coming into the new year with new ideas, new songs, new hopes, and new friends and good friends. We are Medicine Road, and we……… love you!
Last rehearsal day, we took time to listen to a few recordings we're still in the midst of deciding, hemhawing, and arranging. Tom McQuillen our lead guitarist commented:"This is why I play music, so I can listen to music I like." I couldn't agree more. We have been working like warriors to get the songs I have written down. I mean that in every which way. I believe we have top class musicians in this band. We are ready to rock. Now I(we) want to get the best sounding recording that conveys what we hear and what you hear when we're playing live! That's because, when we play live we are all a unit. I'm including you our audience, you, the ones reading this blog. You are the ones we care about. We love what we do, my wish, is that we can do this for a living, and survive! Yeah I know we have no cd's out yet. We're working on that. Unfortunately for us, it takes time, but time is relevant. Time is infinite. That being said. We appreciate every single one of you. Stay with us, we're not going anywhere. Nothing can stop my groove. Our songs have messages in them, some of healing, some of awareness, but all are as fun as they are important. I've always believed that if we can get people whistling or humming our tunes, we started the process of healing the earth, people, and making life a little better. Isn't that what music's supposed to do? Thats why we don't have just one genre. On these social sites, they seem to be short sited. Just punnin around, but its true, there is one genre to describe us, we are jazz, we are rock, we are hard rock, we are psychedelic, we are jam, we are pop, we are funk, we are all over the map. In closing, if you read all of this, We of Medicine Road love and thank you. Peace, Love, and Music
I would like to thank everyone who came out to support us, and those of you who became new fans. You were an absolute delight to perform for. We are still booking for the year so stay tuned. Thanks again. Peace
