Hey everybody. We hope you’re doing well. A lot of cool stuff has been going on lately and here is the recap and the road map.
First a thank you to the good people that braved the weather last Thursday night and come out to the Brink for our performance at Collective Culture. Despite the rain that started as soon as I left the house to get down to the venue and the lake in the parking lot that had to be traversed to get the gear on stage, it was a blast. Noah Coffman took some great pics of us making funny faces while playing. The artists were amazing and had some great work on display at the show. Thanks to Chris McShane for inviting us to play and the rest of the acts for joining in on the fun. Check the calendar friends and catch one of these Collective Culture events. The Brink is a really nice venue and good times await you there. Yes they even have a stage!
Next we go from a venue we hadn’t played at in Orlando to a venue we haven’t played in Jacksonville for the 2nd Annual Jacksonville Original Music Festival. We’re scheduled to play at 10pm at the Volstead on Saturday October 4th. I particularly love these original music festivals because they bring such a diverse group of talent from all over the state and put it on display. You can literally walk from stage to stage and take in some great original music from any genre that peaks your interest. Get the performance schedule and some tickets and check out some great music all day long next weekend. Tickets are $15 the day of the show or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a sick deal that gets you a ticket to JOMF, a meiuuswe t-shirt, and a meiuuswe sticker for $6 while supplies last.
Third we got some of the sample mixes in and our first record will be done sometime before the end of the year. It won’t be a secret when 9 of our original tracks are available for your listening enjoyment on the site. It has been a long process but it is so worth it when you crank one of your tunes and the low end bumps while the Hammond wails over some tasty beats. We appreciate Omar for his hard work getting the session loaded and mixing the tracks. Be on the lookout as the audio is coming like winter or just the less hot Florida season.
Normally this is where I would sign off but the goods just kept coming. We’ve added another show in October this week. We’ll be bringing da flavor to the Votelando Festival on October 25th. The event is from noon to 10pm at the Discount Music Center 3301 Gardenia Ave. Most people don’t know that I’m a political junkie that watches more C-SPAN than a human should be allowed to so when I read the invite for this gig I was excited. In addition to a killer lineup of acts there will be discussions and information sharing from community leaders and activists to inform the public about important issues and voter registration before the election next month. It doesn’t matter what your political leanings are. I feel what matters is being involved and informed to make good decisions about the people elected to represent you and ultimately vote on matters that will have an impact on your day to day life. Did I mention this is a free event?
