We have recorded a new song, entitled "Walk the Tracks", and have released it here on our website! You can take a listen within the Music section of our website, or on the Home page via the Music Player.
We've also entered "Walk the Tracks" in the Next2Rock 2017 radio contest featured on KNRQ 103.7 in Eugene, Oregon! This is a national radio contest being put on by Cumulus Media that starts at the local level where Cumulus has a radio station (in this case KNRQ). Local bands in each market submit a song to its local Cumulus radio station. Then the general public will be able to go to the contest webpage and cast their vote on a 1 - 5 scale for the song presented by each local band. The contestants with the highest scores will have a local live performance before a panel of judges to determine the top local winner. The top local winner will then submit a video performance of their song to a panel of judges at the national level, and the top 5 local winners will get an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles to perform live in a national contest! The grand prize winner from the national competition will earn a recording contract with Big Machine Records to record their song professionally, or even to record an entire album, and get national radio airplay!
The voting period for the local competition begins today, October 6th, at 12:00 PM Pacific, and will end on Wednesday, October 25th at 9:00 PM Pacific.

Now that summer is starting to fade into fall, I thought I'd take a minute and give a quick update on the band. August certainly turned into a busy time as we ended up playing gigs every weekend! 'Tis the season for outdoor parties and live music! I don't see us playing with quite the same frequency as we head into fall and winter. However we do have a couple shows booked, with a couple more in the works.
Definite shows include an acoustic performance out at Alesong Brewing in Loraine on November 4th from 4pm - 7pm. We will only have a max of four of us playing due to space limitations. Then on December 8th from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, we'll be playing as a full band out at Sweet Cheeks Winery out on Briggs Hill Road. Perhaps the only thing comparable to outdoor parties and live music is wine and live music!
Other than that, I've got some big news on a personal level that I'd like to share: My wife and I are expecting to have our 2nd daughter later this week! Clara Elizabeth will be joining us most likely on September 14th, which also happens to be my wife's birthday! So we'll be taking the next few weeks off from band activity while my wife and I welcome her into our lives!
That's all for now. We'll keep you updated when the other shows get confirmed. Here's a photo from the Summer 2017 Tour! More photos are up on our Photos page.
We recently took our songs down to the good people at Pro Sound and Video in Eugene, OR and had them make an EP out of our material! We now have these available for purchase at our shows, plus some free stickers for the kids!
Wouldn't you know it, we had two gigs booked when we launched our site at the beginning of August. Now that number has ballooned into a total of six gigs at the time of this update! Several of these gigs have been private parties, but we will be playing the Bronco Saloon (aka: Coburg Inn) out in Coburg, OR on September 1st, 2017 at 7:00 PM. This show will be open to the public, kid-friendly, and played out back on their gazebo. The weather will be changing soon, so come on out and catch our show outdoors while the good weather lasts! (Click to view the Bronco Saloon in Google Maps.)
Hope to see you there!
