We have a new RN site for the 2 piece Acoustic show at www.reverbnation.com/robdavis54 ...Less confusing for venues that want to book Ashbury (Rock Band)...and those wanting to book the Acoustic show. If you're looking for our Acoustic music, please check it out. Thanks!
We appreciate our friendships with Artists/Bands on this site---but are very disappointed with this corrupt, predatory and manipulating Reverbnation. We make a living as musicians, international distribution and worldwide sales. Yet RN plays games with so-called "rankings" which are completely illegitimate. If RN can't consider REAL accomplishments and sales, but base rankings only on their own BS....then we denounce this site as the pure nonsense that it is. We are playing major concert Festivals in the U.S. this year and in several countries in Europe also...how can anyone with no professional presence or who has never done a show outside their own city have a "Global" ranking??? RN press kits are just a scam for this corporation to steal money...we know for a fact that many of their "offers" to "submit" your RN press kit to be considered for a gig are not even open to bands outside of the city in which they are taking place. Stop paying this company for scams, including FanReach Pro e-mail---of which the majority sent are never even opened!!! Please do not join our mailing list, as we exceeded the limit of 500 long ago. We are 283 over the 500 limit and will not purchase Fan Reach Pro- which RN REQUIRES once you are over 500 subscribers! As Rick Frost said before he left RN..."anyone can buy FB fans, Twitter followers and song plays"...... many "rankings" here are bought and paid for----which makes them ALL meaningless! Many artists become a "fan" just to try and gain one in return---twitter followers too--not really interested in anything except increasing their own fans and followers---doesn't anyone else see something wrong with that--lol!! The general public doesn't use RN for sharing and promoting music on the internet...they use YOUTUBE....RN is an artist community which support each other, but that helps very little in reaching the public ---they're the ones who buy tickets for shows and CDs and merchandise. RN is interested in stuffing their own pockets from the aspirations of unsigned musicians. The SINCERE artists here are wonderful (not those who "fan" thousands of others just to increase their own fan numbers and rankings), but those who actually look to find great music and REALLY listen---those are the Artists that we respect...meanwhile, RN the corporation itself is poison.
Thanks to all our Fans who have posted Ashbury songs on Youtube...we collectively have well over 110,000 total views.
We will perform at the 2013 Ragnarokkr Metal Apocalypse Festival in Chicago. It's the #1 Metal Festival in the U.S. and we are proud to be the first non-metal band ever invited. We will reunite with Johnny Ray (drums) from our Endless Skies album, and add Bassist Eddie Hosmer and Chris Gebbia on guitar/keys and backing vocals. Thanks to all our Metal fans and friends!!
Yes, we are "old-timers", our debut album released on vinyl in '83, but ithe CD is still the #1 seller for our label in Hard Rock & Heavy Metal...we also have a soft Acoustic underbelly for music of different genres which you will find farther down on our Roster of songs.....
