On January 28th we had our CD release party at Lovin' Cup!!!!! We are very excited and are so happy to be finished with recording! At the same time, it was very fun and we learned a lot and grew as musicians. Jason had a lot of great feedback (thank you Jason!!!) and even gave us some new ideas for some songs, which we incorporated and loved. All in all, we had a blast and we look forward to recording again with him in the future (http://jasonlustigrecording.com). The first week or two after we were done recording, practice felt weird because we were so used to Jason being there and critiquing us or laughing about something with us. It also felt weird playing as a group, since we had spent so much time with our headphones in an empty room. :) Mike Zamiara was really fun to work with as well and his tracks are some of our favorites (check out his music at www.mikezamiara.com). We all try to imitate how he sings on Donnie and War now (and none of us sound good doing it!). Mike sang vocals with us at the show on Saturday, and we were excited to have him open for us as well Playing for the Hornell AOH on the 14th was a blast and there were so many awesome people there who danced the whole five hours and bought out all 15 our pre-release CD's. Thank you, Jerry, for inviting us, and thank you to everyone who came out! We are now in the beginning stages of writing for our NEXT CD (yes, we have about five songs in the works) and we are also starting to book shows and festivals. Stay tuned! :)
We are excited to announce that................
We will begin recording our full length album in Mid-November!!!!!
