Tony was testing something new in Garageband, set a recent poem to a weirdly tuned six string ukulele track, and came up with this: “How We Keep Time At This Age.” Give it a listen…
Hey folks — just a heads up. We will no longer be playing at the Canal District Artwalk in Worcester on August 13. Still look for us at Nick’s on August 31, though….
Two shows coming up in August…
Sunday, August 13: We’ll be playing somewhere in the Canal District of Worcester as part of the entertainment of ArtWalk! 12-5 PM. Details of location and more to follow!
Thursday, August 31: We’ll be playing three sets at Nick’s, 124 Millbury Street, Worcester. Free to come in. Donations and merch sales welcomed. 9 PM – 12 AM.
Worcester, we’re coming for you…Stay tuned for more!
Faro and Tony did a duo gig at the Plymouth Center Of The Arts in Plymouth MA on Sunday, June 11th for a full house of poets and music enthusiasts. Tony was dealing with the residual effects of a pinched nerve in his left hand, but the guys still managed to pull off a premiere of a new piece, “It Used To Be Summer,” and an arrangement for guitar of the cuatro piece “The Lives Of Artists.” A fine time had by all.
Next gig is in August where the full band will be playing at the Worcester ArtWalk in the Canal District. Stay tuned…
As we move deeper into the recording process, we find ourselves looking for new ways to support the work.
While it’s not strictly a band project, Tony has recently set up a Patreon site to help support some ambitions he has for his writing. Included in that, of course, is support for the band’s work…hoping to purchase some new recording equipment, for instance, and work on getting our music in front of new people.
If you’re so inclined, you can look at the site and learn more about Patreon in general here.
Working in the shadows, but coming out.
Faro and Tony will be doing a duo gig at the Plymouth Center For The Arts, Plymouth MA, on June 11;
and the whole dang band will be playing an outdoor gig at the Worcester Artwalk in the Canal District on August 13th.
Recordings of new tracks and new, full band arrangements are in progress as well.
Details to follow soon…very soon…
We spent some time last week working on full-band versions of two of our signature pieces — hope to have them available for your listening pleasure in the next couple of days.
While you’re waiting, you can check out a couple of things other folks in the band are up to. Links at the end of the post.
— Chris O’Donnell’s searingly hot cover band “Seed RaCeR” is celebrating its ten-year anniversary right now with bookings all over Southern New England. If you use Facebook, you can look them up there for all their doings.
— Steven Lanning-Cafaro is busy as all get out playing in like 80 different bands. Latest to the roster are “Custard Pie” (a Led Zeppelin tribute band) and of course, metal masters “Let Us Prey.”
— Tony Brown published poems in Drunk In A Midnight Choir and in a new anthology called “Trumped,” which has nothing to do with the game of bridge.
Go check things out…new tracks soon!
