11-21-05 - Our debut at The Viper Room was a big success thanks to all the great new and old fans that came out to see us!

Emily and her band did an amazing job and it was great to see Gravy8 back in action!

We're going to be recording some new songs and working on new tunes for the next few months - can't wait for you to hear what we're working on!

3-10-05 - Couple of neat things happening this week - iTunes added "Live My Life" to there ever growing stable of great music. Very cool - if you're not an iTunes user you should give it a shot - the software is free and it's a great way to organize all your music. Just think, if 400 people buy "TV" off iTunes we can buy ourselves an iPod... heh. Also, NPR contacted us about using "TV" on their Open Mic show online. Very cool... this show features great unsigned artists from all over the world. Check it out here and let us know what you think! If we get enough good ratings we get a cool NPR tote bag! J/K ;) See everybody at York Street on March 18th - it's gonna be a GREAT show!

2-21-05 - Wow... what a great night Friday was. Our CD release was everything we hoped for and more. To everyone who came out and help celebrate it, we cannot thank you enough. You made us feel like the greatest band in the world for a night, and without a doubt you were the best crowd in town. The Swarthy Band kicked the night off right and got everyone in the mood. Whitney Barricklow overcame the flu and led her band through some incredible songs. Barrelhouse was a great venue to host the show and Jim and Craig were accomodating and generous. We had a blast and the only bad thing when the night was over. We're going into the studio next month to start recording another batch of songs (which we previewed for you Friday) and we'll be talking about this show the entire time... For everyone who made the dream come alive, we thank you! Check out some great pics by Scott Preston of the show here.

2-16-05 - We're hitting the local media hard over the next couple of days, so here's your checklist... Thursday's Post will have a piece about the band and the CD by Rick Bird. Also the Hamilton Journal will have an article by Richard Jones. Friday's Enquirer will have an article by Cynthia Hanifin. Friday morning, at 8:45 AM, we'll be performing "TV" in FOX19's studios. At noon we'll be at 89.7 WNKU (listen online here) to do an acoustic performance and interview. Finally, it all wraps up at Barrelhouse that evening - can't wait to see you there!
