Hey look! Alana and her sister are on the cover of Scene Magazine!
Our publicist and close friend, Dawn Duncan (Yellowbright, Inc.), crafted this article about our music community’s stringed-sisters of rock. Go ahead, pick yourself up a copy and enjoy…
Last Saturday was a show out of the norm. Tellerpalooza (http://tellerpalooza.com/) is a fundraising event for the arts program at Teller Elementary, it was kinda insane:
I shuffled up the stairs to Mercury Cafe’s second floor stage. Strategically forging a path through a turbulent river of youth, past parents and siblings, all in full Teller-Tiger regalia. My drums were loaded in and I found myself alone, unready to take on an entire school of kiddos. I had a few hours to kill so before I tried to stick around, (a task which would require a beer or two…I don’t have kids), I sprinted over to Denver’s City O City for something warm, and caffeinated.
The show was actually a blast. The Merc took care of us, as they always do, the elementary school band/jazz band were impressive to say the very least, and we got to chat up the youngsters as well as make some new parent-core fans. I can’t really say we do this often, but playing for our youth is one of my top favorite things about being a musician…it’s simply and utterly inspiring, they rock out harder than anybody I know.
Next week we take leave for an east coast tour!!! Get yourself and your easterly amigos in on these shows, it’ll be our first visit since forever ago andmy first time out east with the band.
Oh. And we get to play/stay in Chris’s new neck o’ the woods: BOSTON! Which, I’ll have you know, is going swimmingly for him as well as for the band now that we have an awesomely extended musical outreach.
