Hey hey hey! This message is proudly brought to you by the funky drummer himself: RGB.
I hope everyone has had a killer summer! We just finished up our five-week summer tour that had us as far northeast as Maine, as far west as Colorado, and just about everywhere in between. The tour was a great success. We made new fans and friends all along the way, and we even managed to sneak in a few fun activities between the playing.
Touring in a van affords us a front row seat to the majestic geography the US has to offer, and one of my favorite parts of touring is seeing the beautiful country in which we are so fortunate to live. Colorado always stands out as one of the most beautiful places we play, and this time we were lucky enough to play five shows there. This tour also took us to New Mexico and the high desert which, in my opinion, is just as beautiful as the lush greenery of Colorado.
Each day we have a show on tour, we “hurry up and wait” to play. That’s musician talk for the day to day grind that is traveling from one city to the next to load in and sound check hours before (some times 7-8 hours ahead) the band is expected to play.
Each day we find new ways to pass the time before the big pay off, ie: playing the show, and activities range from working out or practicing our respective instruments to playing games like chess or cards and just overall goofing around. The camaraderie on this tour was amazing throughout, and made each day at the very least interesting. As you might imagine, spending 30+ days in confined quarters with 5-6 other guys can lead to some friction, but at the end of the day we all recognize how lucky we are to be able to do this for a living, and to have each other as bandmates.
We also want to say thanks to all over fans, friends, and family for your never ending support. We couldn’t do any of this with out you. Thank you!
Like the Beastie Boys said: “It’s called ‘Gratitude’, and that’s right!”
