Taking a look at a busy summer Schedule that's unfolding I'm glad to have a moment to write this down! Here's a quick recap of some recent highlights and things to look forward to!
Bandit Kings are still leading the pack with recent major exposure on Sirius XM The Loft with Meg Griffin and a full 45 minute feature with interviews, live in the studio performances and just a fun, interesting and creative time over all. The Bandit Kings Epic Hello co-producer Dave Mattacks joined us for the program recorded at Tony Goddess Bang A Song studio and did his own two part series soon afterward. All I have to say is we are lucky to be in such good company. Watch out for new songs, shows and the like at Banditkings.com
Speaking of Company, congratulations to friend and Epic Hello contributor Nelson Bragg on being a member of the Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour! Nelson joined the Bandit Kings on stage for several Los Angeles shows at Molly Malone's, The Mint and Saint Rocke as he heard the news of the coming tour. Maybe you saw him performing at the Grammy's with Foster the People, Maroon 5 and naturally the Beach Boys. We'll be hosting Nelson's CD Release "You Get What You Want" at the Rhumbline on June 25th for a special Open Jam the day before the Beach Boys play Boston. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/nelsonbragg
KBMG continue to raise the ante with a recent fantastic electric show at Minglewood Tavern, a rarity for the band who usually play acoustic. The new songs are still brewing at a slow but steady pace and there's no hurry since the Tuesday night residency at Jalapeños, now into it's 8th year, continues to make this band of already seasoned professionals a tighter and more dynamic unit with each week that passes. Keep your eyes peeled for a special Coffee House Show in Rockport early this Summer with a fine opening act plus some new material!
There are Benefits, One Night Acoustic Stands with friends featuring Allen Estes, Jimmy Ryan, Ann Marie Shimanoski, Tony Goddess, SAFETY 80s returns to the Madfish, Glostafarian Shows at the Cape Ann Marina, new recordings planned and hopefully some summer fun!
best wishes to you for a fantastic Spring and Summer!
