DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM!
Okay peeps and creeps, its been a minute since Ive posted to this blog but Im going to try and get you more info weekly via this exact BLOG! So stay tuned! These past 2 weeks have been the best and most productive part of 2013 (Wait, its been the only part of 2013) None the less we have nearly completed our first full length album over in Sun City, CA with a great musican and engineer Lunchbox over at Lunchbox Studios. His facility is perfect for anyone looking to record. We highly recommend working with Lunchbox if given the chance. This past December we played CBBA in Ontario, which personally was the highlight of my year. So many great shows and FANS at them all but nothing gets your rocks off like playing to thousands on a real deal Holyfield Arena Sound system. If you missed it you can catch the video here ~~> http://youtu.be/OzVzz_rTzdw <~~ 2013 is going to be nothing short of Amazing as OneHundred ProoF plans on releasing their highly anticipated debut album come Early to Mid 2013. This means OneHundred ProoF is currently planning a tour to NorCal, Arizona, and Texas! Our fans make these things possible. Without your ears, hearts and souls we wouldnt have what we do. We thank you all! If you want to sign up for the street team in your city we can start you on a journey that will take you to new places, new people and new life experiences.

Till next time...This is Mike Bminor and like the man Bobby Barker said, Help control the ignorant population and spay and neuter your dumber friends...or something like that. -Bminor
This past Saturday was one day that I dont think any member of this band will forget. It was a cool California evening and the 100 ProoF fans were deep and the vibes were sublime. Everything was alined and the stage was set.... The fans, I can't say enough about you the fans. You guys are what make these kinds of nights so memorable. You bring the energy, the good vibes and the drive, that we feed off of to bring you guys the best damn rock show in Southern California. A 40 minute set flew by in seconds, the lights, the sounds, the sea of people there to see 100 ProoF rock the stage was all a flash to me. I can speak for everyone when I say, those few minutes on stage at the world famous Viper Room were some of the best times we've had as a band in the past few years. It is nights like those that make the countless hours of hard work and time away from our families worth it. Thank you to everyone who support and believe in the music, and, in us. Now that Im done stroking ourselfs Id like to say if you missed The Chimpz close out the night then you missed one hell of a rock show. These guys are our buddies and we were looking forward to playing another show together. When these guys play, THEY PLAY. It was a non-stop head banging, fist pumping, arms waving, people screaming sea of bodies in the packed little Viper Room and when Niki Kai (an 8 year old prodigy on the guitar) came out to play a song the place went crazy. I cant wait to hit the stage again and from the looks of it we have plenty of shows coming up. June 14th is the next upcoming show in our hometown of Redlands, California, it will be our first acoustic show ever and we are looking forward to revamping some of our songs and playing some great jams you all know and love. It will be a great time and I hope to see you all there. Till then peeps and creeps.

June 9th we play a private party so if your lucky enough to be in attendence take some photos with the band and submit them to the NEW 100 ProoF fan folder we are now sharing on FaceBook (www.Facebook.com/official100ProoF).

June 14th we play at the local Redlands, CA Romano's Pizzeria in DTR (DownTown Redlands). This will be a show that you WILL NOT WANT TO MISS!!! This place is packed on Thursdays normally and with 100 ProoF rockin' the little and local stage, it should be a spectacle to see! Get there early we plan on packing the place DEEP! June 23rd is another private party. We might film some footage so we can share it with everyone after the show, you never know. If you build it, they will come. How that applies to this, I do not know, just always thought it sounded cool and insightful.

Battle of The Bands
This week has been a great one filled with good times good fans and great shows. We had ups and downs and through it all the fans make it all worth while and keep us chugging along at a steamrollers pace so we can bring you, the fans, the best damn music we can. Fridays show was a blast, the venue was great, the sound was great, the people were great. Not only did we bring the 100 ProoF mob in full effect we gave all the other band playing in the show a good run for their money. If you ask us everyone is a winner. Just supporting your local artists and businesses is what it is all about. Saturday was the down of the week. We had to cancel last minute on a really important show to us and it not only bums us all out as a band but makes us feel like complete jackholes. We always will do anything and everything to make sure that things like this dont happen but sometimes life throws a 1-2 punch and you have to take a step back in order not to fall. The next show is at the NOS event center in San Bernardino, CA and its going to be a great time for all. We cant wait to be back on stage playing for you guys, till then hope to see you all in the future! Peace and Love.

House Of Blues, Anaheim
100 Proof just Headlined a show at House Of Blues, Anaheim!! This show was completely OUT OF CONTROL!! It was a great line up of bands thanks to Gig Boss and Animal. The Chimpz tore it up right before 100 Proof hit the stage!! Fan's from all over the Inland Empire showed up in the masses to see 100 Proof and even yelled out for an encore. Rockwell Anderson Media was there as well as Ace Music Inc. to watch 100 Proof deliver another KILLER performance. The guys in 100 Proof didn't have enough time to thank their fans and everyone who made this show possible but as you all know, 100 Proof appreciates every fan that supports their music. Well there's not a whole lot more to say, everyone who has seen 100 Proof perform knows what to expect, a high energy show and unforgettable performance with music that will have their fans raven and their ears ringing for days. well until next time, SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ARTIST!!

Back from REHAB 09/19/11
Last nights REHAB show was one for the record books. 100 Proof made some new friends, fans and artist alike. DubFound openned up the show with some tight Ska beats and screaming brass to get the crowd skanking and moving like no other. These young guys have a good sound and I hope they go far in all of their ventures. 100 Proof shut it down...like always. Video and photos coming soon! INHALE blew the door off the joint. A none stop show full of raw emotion and seamless beats to remind us why they have such a soild fan base in SoCal and beyond. And REHAB...what can I say other then if you missed it, you missed it. The whole show was a non-stop riot of musical mastery that can only be described as "biblical". Thats right I went all, "The Good Book" on your asses. The end of the night was a momment in time to be remembered forever by 100 Proof as REHAB invited us up to help close the night with The Bartender Song. A moment this band will rememeber for the rest of its dayz and far into the grave. Much respect to all the bands last night. Cant wait to do all over again. Special Thanks to all our fans who made this show one of a kind. Also to REHAB, INHALE, DubFound, Animal, Bombastic Entertainment, Stingers, The travelin' Sound Guy, StreetTeam Divas, and anyone else I forgot to mention. These kind of nights remind us just how lucky we are to be able to share our music with all of you. Peace!
