Busy makin' music

In case you're wondering, we're busy recording our next CD.

Summer 2013

We've been busy gigging and the summer has just flown by. Our new drummer and keyboardist are now pretty familiar with the tunes. We get into the studio fairly regularly to work on tracks for our third CD but it's going to take some time before we pull all of that together.

Stephen Thomas Band - CD Release

The Horatio Street Album is finally done. Its been a long time in the making and a full years effort culminated in a truly memorable CD Launch at Tucsons Roadhouse in Ottawa.

It turned out to be the perfect venue for the occasion. With many familiar faces and long time supporters in the room it was like a true homecoming even though we never really left.

We started off the night with a performance of all the songs off the CD. Audience response was fantastic. Many had never heard the tunes but we had their attention and before too long we even had some people up and dancing.

The second set featured a mixture of originals from the first CD as well as some danceable cover tunes and we managed to keep the joint jumping.

A special thank you to all of those who came out to support us. We could not do this with out you. For those of you who missed the show, we have a a follow up event set for April 23 at Avant Garde, 135 Besserer Street downtown Ottawa.

We plan to showcase the new songs throughout the year to support airplay

Final Touches

Hi all. We're off to a busy start for 2011.

The band is now officially called the Stephen Thomas Band and we have a new web site: www.stephenthomasband.com. We've been filling out applications for various festivals and fairs and a new CD almost ready to go to press. We are in the final mixing stage and after that its mastering and then printing. Hopefully that whole process will be done in about 90 days and we'll be ready to go.

Meanwhile theres a few live shows on the calendar (see web site for more details) but the first one is at the Rainbow Bistro (Ottawa) on Feb 4th . Show starts 9:30. Hope you can make it out as we will be showcasing a lot of the new songs from the new CD as well as some of the oldies and goodies.

Take care and thanks for your ongoing support, we can't do this without you.
