From Bean Burritos to Peanut Butter and Jelly.

Fans, friends, and family of 3D In Your Face, HELLO!  Welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, the official blog for 3D In Your Face.  Another week has gone by and you wild heavy metal maniacs did it again.  Another show at the 21st Saloon and you blew it out of the water.  The show was packed, you helped us raise $140 for the Make-A-Wish foundation, there were more pictures and video taken of the band then I have ever seen, and for another week you proudly stood up for 80s Roll N Roll-Heavy Metal.  I have never been so excited about the future of 3D In Your Face, and Rock N Roll in general.  I talked to the guys and they think we only need about 50 more people through the door to sell out The 21st Saloon on a Friday night.  50 more people to accomplish my goal (a few weeks back one of my New Years resolutions was to sell out a club once in my career).  50 more people to prove that we are a forced to be reckoned with in this town.  Also if you didn't hear we did an interview for the new up-and-coming documentary, Hair I Go Again.   After our show, the directors Kyle and Steve, shot about an hours worth of interviews that will be going in their movie.  Not only were Kyle and Steve two of the most professorial individuals we have ever worked with but they are also two of the most passionate hair metal fans in existence.  Expect big things from this movie.  Follow them on Facebook and Twitter.  You wont want to miss your favorite 80s tribute band in it's first ever movie debut.  
I thought long and hard about what I wanted to write for you this week and I just couldn't get past this sense of family and brotherhood I was feeling.  When I first started playing music it was because I was a misfit, I didn't fit in with all the other football players and track stars.  I was searching for a sense of belonging that I had't found in school, sports, or girls. I felt alive when I was in my room with the music cranked up and the windows drawn.  I new something was different with me.  I wanted something that the other kids in school didn't have any idea about.  I sought out other kids that felt the same way as me and I joined my first band, OFFICIALLY TERMINATED.  We did everything together.  We toured all over.  We lived in a van together.  We sleep in truck stops on the ground.  We partied together.  We should have been arrested more times than I would like to remember.  In punk rock I found what I was looking for.  I found other people who were like me and who liked the same thing I liked.  Later on I joined a band called Bandit Sound and we started traveling even farther.  In every city, in every state we found other people like us that loved music more than anything else in the world.  We slept on floors and ate dirty bean burritos from the gas stations, but I couldn't have been happier.  On these tours I got to spread my wings and truly express my love for creating and playing Rock N Roll music.  
Fast forward a few years and a different instrument ( I used to play guitar for those that don't know).  3D In Your Face has become this machine that I am totally addicted to and love.  But I had never really felt that same family bond that I felt while playing in those punk bands.  But as we we got to talking to Kyle and Steve from Hair I Go Again, it finally hit me.  This was the same thing that I had experienced on all those tours before.  These guys truly love 80s hair metal and had never given up on it.  We talked all night long about obscure bands and our love for great sleazy glam Rock n Roll.  Then I started looking around and realized that this family bond had been there all along.  Every show that we do people arrive early and stay late.  They sing every line and know every riff in every song.  Every person that comes to one of our shows is there because of one reason, the music.  We are united in the fact that we all love Rock N Roll.  We are brothers and sisters standing tall every single night.  We are aunts and uncles brought together by loud raunchy guitars.  I still sleep on the floor when I am in Omaha.  I have graduated from dirty bean burritos to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  But to be honest with you I am still surrounded by my best friends in the world, not only my band mates but each and every person that walks through that door.  We all feel different and you know what that different is fucking cool.  That is what makes the world go-round.  At least we have each other.

This Friday, Feb 1st we will be back at The 21st Saloon for another round of 80s Rock N Roll.  Spread the word to all your friends and anyone you meet.  We need to sell this thing out, for all of us.  Let's prove a point and make this the wildest party Omaha has ever seen.  As a matter of fact I don't think it is to early to start calling these The Legendary 21st Saloon Shows.  I will make a Facebook page and we will look back on these Friday shows and laugh at how much fun we had.  This weeks sponsor is very near and dear to us. As most of you know 3D In Your Face has been nominated for an Omaha Entertainment Award and we got invited to the award ceremony on Feb 17th at The Hilton Omaha.  My goal was to have everything about our appearance at this ceremony be over the top, to be HAIR IN THE AIR.  Our sponsor this week is Jone-Z Party Bus out of Omaha.  They have graciously provided a white Rock N Roll limousine to drive us to the ceremony and back.  We will be representing each and every one of you Sunday Feb.17th so I figured we should ride in style.  Please go to their Facebook page and 'like' them.  Jone-Z Party bus is the only way to travel in style anywhere in Omaha.  Thanks for reading and see you all this Friday, Feb. 1st at the 21st Saloon.  Spread the word.

You Get Your Palace.

Hello everyone and welcome again to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog for 3D In Your Face.  This blog has grown beyond my wildest dreams and I want to thank each and every one of you for reading this and passing it along to all your friends.  We are about a month into this new year and things are looking bright for 3D In Your Face.  We are full steam ahead.  2013 is going to be the year of 3D In Your Face and Heavy Metal-Rock N Roll.  We have already booked a lot of our summer tour.  We will be hitting some of the same festivals we played last year as well as a bunch of new dates around the country, so be on the look out.  I am finalizing our guitar pick endorsement.  Soon we will supplied with real custom 3D In Your Face guitar picks.  Everyone is going to want one.  We are also putting the finishing touches on our residency at The 21st Saloon.  I know what you are thinking.  "Where did the time go?"  There are 17 more Friday night shows left before we start our summer tour.  So stop putting it off and get your ass to Omaha.  The last two weeks have been spectacular.  The crowds have been great and our goal is to make this Friday one for the record books.  I still have a goal to sell out the 21st Saloon before we leave in May.  You are running out of excuses for not coming to see 3D In Your Face at The 21st Saloon.
 Being that it is the end of January, I wanted to write something inspirational to get us all through these cold winter months.  Spring is almost here but we still have a few more months of winter to deal with.  The gym visits have been getting fewer and far between and the New Years resolutions seem like an impossible deal made with the devil.  Well I am here to give you a little push, a little nudge to keep forging ahead.  I want to get honest with you for a second.  I wont lie to all of you heavy metal maniacs.  I am an addict in the full sense of the word.  I have an addictive personality.  Granted I gave up the booze and drugs two wonderful years ago, but that doesn't change the fact I can't seem to moderate myself.  If I like something I am going all the way past 10, if you will to 11.  My new addiction is coffee.  I can't seem to get enough of the stuff.  I have traded my McCormicks Vodka bottle and PBR cans for a nice coffee mug with my name on it.  Doesn't hurt that the mug was given to me by an amazing 3D In Your Face fan.  Now coffee doesn't seem to be as Rock N Roll as Jack Daniels, but in all honesty it is.  I can now function in society instead of always working on last nights hang over.  I have made a list of goals for myself and for the band and work on these goals everyday that I can (I also may be addicted to working on band stuff, pick your battles).  I also find that I can move forward in my life in a positive direction.  Now I'm not saying that drugs and alcohol are bad, but for me they limited my creativity.  As an artist why on earth would you want to limit your creativity.   I look back now and realize that I was waiting for something great to happen to me.  Well good things aren't going to just fall into your lap.  You have to go get what you want.  To quote Cool Runnings again "Go ahead.  Get your palace."

A few few years back when Playboy first joined the band we played a few shows with his other band DI-FI.  Now these guys were seasoned rock veterans but they had never been out with 3D In Your Face before.  Challenge excepted.  Before Jason was our tech I used to fill the guitar tech case full of beers so that I could drink on the side of the stage without having to buy beer at the bar.  The owners of the clubs would always come over to chat and I would have to hide a bunch of empties where ever I could so as not to get in trouble.  One fateful weekend DI-FI and 3D In Your Face were playing in Norfolk at The Depot and I took it upon myself to show these new guys how we partied.  We did the show, I may have fallen of the stage that night, and we drove back to the hotel to stay the night.  DI-FI checked into their rooms and started watching the video tape recording of their set.  I just couldn't have this.  We were a rock band on tour.  So I decided it would be real funny to knock on their doors at 3 AM.  I knew they wouldn't open the doors so I just dropped my pants and bent over and started yelling in the hotel hallway.  "Why wont you open the door?"  "Don't you like us?"  I thought we were friends?"  "I have a very important document for Mr. Jeremy Deans."  They look through the peep hole and were mortified but I thought it was the funniest thing ever.  Luckily we didn't get kicked out, that would come later.  I look back at this now and think, why would I have done this. I was a maniac but for all the wrong reasons.  Don't get me wrong I would still drop my pants and run through a hotel lobby, that's just plain funny.  But I wasn't focused on where I was at as a musician.  I put on such a lousy show.  All I was concerned with was how many beers I could fit in my tech case.  I am so thankful to be in 3D In Your Face and be surrounded by people that cheer me on.  I want that palace and I there is nothing that will stand in my way. .
This week I am so proud to say that we will be teaming up with The Make-A-Wish Foundation for our show at The 21st Saloon.  On Friday Jan. 25th at 9:30 pm we will be taking the stage to help raise money for this amazing organization   We have made so many friends over the last year and I am excited to be able to put this to good use.  Also we will be joined by some very special guest from out of town this Friday.  Hair I Go Again is a documentary being shot about a band named TRYXX that broke up more than 20 years ago. They are putting the band back together and ultimately shooting to get the opening spot for one of their heavy metal heroes.  The documentary crew will be making a stop in Omaha to the 21st Saloon to shoot some video and do an interview with us for their film.  So spread the word and get your asses down to the 21st Saloon this Friday night.  Where your Sunday's best because you never know if you will be in a movie.  Please help us spread the word and pack the 21st Saloon this Friday night.  Thank you again for reading this blog. I love you all.

Chew On These Nutz

Hello everyone and welcome back to HAIR IN THE AIR.  The Official Blog for 3D In Your Face. To all those people that came out to The 21st Saloon last Friday, thank you so very much.  Last Friday was one of the best shows we have ever had at The 21st Saloon.  A huge thank you to DJ Steve Lindzy for the awesome karaoke   Saturday we played our first ever house show as a band.  It was wild.  No drum riser, half stacks, and 4 lights.  The show was so much fun.  Now that we know it is possible, I can't wait to do another one.   I have a very wild blog post for you this week.  Some of you are going to love this and some of you are going to hate it.  I post a blog every week so you can't please everyone.  This week's theme goes out to all those gear nuts out there.  Our guitars, amps, drums, strings, and pedals have become such a huge part of our sound and show and I want to share them with you.  So for all you gear nuts out there enjoy.  For you people that really don't care about this, I hope you read this anyway.  I have added  a little spice in here to make things interesting for everyone.
Snyper is the first guy I want to talk about.  Snyper is the epitome of a gear nut so, trust me when I say this guy has seen it all.  His is not only a guitar collector but he is also an expert in all things with six strings.  He has tried every guitar and amp combination out there to achieve the sound he has today.  He literally has guitars stacked up to the ceiling in the Snyper Compoud.  Dubbed The Guitar Wall of China, Snyper doesn't play around when it comes to picking out the right axe for the job.  But the reason I love him so much is that he is a minimalist when it comes to effects.  His sound comes straight from his head.  Sure there is a pedal board but if you look closely he rarely uses it.  Pure and simple he plays straight ahead rock n roll.  Snyper plays two guitar on stage as his main weapon of choice.  The first is a Yellow Charvel Custom Shop with a German Floyd Rose.  The wood is Alder and the pickup is custom wound, based on the Dimarzio Tone Zone.  The neck is Maple unfinished with a reverse headstock.  The Second guitar is a white splatter Wayne star body, hand built by Wayne and Michael Charvel.  It has a German Floyd Rose with an Alder Body.  The neck is Maple unfinished.  To achieve the sonic brutality that he has been striving for these two guitar are run through an EVH 5150-III head and two Randal 4x12 cabinets.  For strings Snyper uses GHS Boomers .009 through .042.  On the ground level he uses a MXR phase 90 EVH, MXR EVH flanger, EVH Wah, and a MXR delay.  I told you he was a gear nut.  Snyper also prefers :Pepsi to Coke and his favorite food is anything that is cheap.
Hot Rod is the next guy on the list.  He has also a collector of gear but not at the rate of Snyper.  Hot Rod knows what he likes and sticks with it.  As our lead singer he also plays rhythm guitar and key boards.  He is the all around jack of all trades.  Hot Rod has main guitar has changed a few times over the years but for the most part he has always fell back on The Flying V.  He looks good playing it and The Flying V is the worlds coolest guitar.  Sorry sorry I know.  For most of 3D In Your Face's existence Hot Rod played a Jay Turner custom purple Flying V.  Recently Hot Rod acquired a new toy that screams cool and exudes Rock N Roll, A Michael Schenker custom Dean Flying V.  To achieve the tone he is looking for, he plays straight through to a Line 6 POD located in our monitor rack.  No pedals, no cords.  Pure.  Hot Rod also has a 1980s Gibson Flying V that doesn't see to many shows these days.  Back when I was the guitar tech I cracked the case open to let the guitar acclimate.  Somebody came over and grabbed the case not knowing it was open and the guitar took a spill.  Nothing happened, but to keep her safe we decided to keep the Gibson locked in the 3D Studios.

I don't have as many guitars as the other guys.  I am the newest member and I haven't been doing this as long as the them.  That being said, when I started playing bass I always knew what bass guitar I wanted to play.  As soon as I picked up a Thunderbird I knew that my search for the ultimate Destroyer of Souls was over.  I don't really even know why I look any more.  For my main bass I play a white limited edition custom Epiphone Thunderbird.  My secondary bass is a blue Epiphone Thunderbird and my backup bass is an Ibanez tobacco burst Iceman.  I play GHS Bass Boomers .050-.115.  The low end I produce comes from an amazing amp with a lot of miles behind it.  My head is a Peavey Nitro Bass 450 that has been on all the OFFICIALLY TERMINATED tours (it has had a lot of things spilled on it and not just beer), powering an Ampeg 8X10 cabinet.  I really don't run any pedals but I do have a pedal board mainly for tuning and muting during solos and song breaks.  I run a Boss pedal tuner, a Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster (for the bass solo) and a bass wah pedal.  My rig is very simple but powerful and has an amazing sound.

Last but not least is Playboy.  Me not being a drummer and him not being next to me, I don't really have a lot of details for you here.  What I do know is that Playboy plays a White Crush Drum Kit.  He also plays Zildjian Cymbals and DW Pedals.  Much like Wolverine little is known about Playboy.  I do know that he prefers Coke to Pepsi.  He loves long walks on the beach.  He has only punched two people in the face.  He hates pets of any kind.  Playboy prefers McDonalds to Burger King.  He doesn't eat Chinese food.  He loves spicy mustard with his chicken nuggets and hates people that like ranch.  He prefers Dorthy Lynch dressing on his salad.  Playboy is also allergic to lettuce and most other vegetables except black olives and celery.  As far as gear goes, I don't know what to tell you.  I'm not a drummer and he likes to keep his shit a secret.
This Friday, Jan 18th we are very excited to bring you another amazing show at The 21st Saloon.  As of right now I am still finalizing the details on this weeks sponsor.  I will edit this and let all of you know when I get the details ironed out.  Thank you so much for reading this blog and for being the most amazing fans this band could ever ask for.  See you all this Friday.

Hello again everybody.  Welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog for 3D In Your Face.  I know what you are thinking, "Two blog posts in 4 days".  Well this week I have a very special treat for you (plus I have to get back on my normal schedule because of the holidays).  This week we are celebrating the birthday of our very own Jeremy "Playboy" Deans.  This is a great honor for me.  Jeremy is one of my best friends and I look up to him, not only as a musician but as a performer.  Every day we get the chance to hang out he teaches me something and makes me laugh so hard my sides hurt.  Jeremy is also one of the most talented drummers I have had the chance to work for and play next to.  For some reason, when this guy is behind the kit you can't take your eyes off him.  He does tricks I have never seen another drummer do, all while staying in time and smiling from ear to ear.  Jeremy is also a lot like Wolverine.  No one really knows how old he is, or where he came from.  He is an anomaly, he is amazing, and he is one of my closest friends and confidants.  Sit back and hold on for the ride, it's time to get a little bumpy.
My first run in with Jeremy was back when I was 17 or 18 years old.  I just started going to concerts and paying attention to the local rock scene in Nebraska.  His band at the time OX 45 was making huge waves all over the midwest.  They were a heavy metal band that not only lived like rock stars but partied like rock stars too.  OX 45 always got the best shows and they deserved every one they got.  I remember going to The Anchor Inn to the Rock Never Stops Tour.  To my surprise this band I was hearing so much about was opening the festival.  They came out, each guy had long blond hair.  They were nasty, they were rude, and they were amazing.  I thought they were one of the coolest bands I had ever seen.  OX 45 was young and hungry and they looked like they were having a blast on stage.  But the one thing I will never forget was their drummer.  He was insane.  Hair going everywhere.  He was an animal behind those skins.  Fast forward a few more years.  I was working as the guitar tech for 3D In Your Face and the guys decided to take me out for my birthday.  This was back in the drinking days and we went out to The Coast to see The Noize Next Door.  We were sitting at the bar getting tore up when Dave Frame our lighting guy got me a shot of Tequila and Tan-quire.  I wouldn't take it because I was sure that I would puke.  Well Dave tried to give this shot to everyone but nobody would take it.  I look over the bar and I saw a long blonde haired guy that I recognized from OX 45.  I told Dave to give that guy the shot.  Dave walked over and Jeremy downed the shot like a champ.  A minute later he was headed for the bathroom, except he didn't make it into the guys he decided it would look cooler to go to the women's bathroom.  We all had a good laugh and sat back down.   30 minutes later the band hadn't gone back on yet because they couldn't find their drummer.  Turns out that after taking that shot from Dave, Jeremy went and passed out in the ladies bathroom.  His band revived him and set him behind the drums. Back then Jeremy had a microphone to sing backups (can you imagine that).  He was so drunk that during every song he would sing "Photograph" by Def Leppard to get our attention.  I laughed so hard that I ended up puking that night behind a Taco Bell.  Jeremy will tell you to this day, that that night at The Coast is the reason he has never gotten another chance to sing backups.
Fast forward a couple months and the drummer for 3D In Your Face quits.  It was a no-brainer.  Jeremy was hired in a flash and we started terrorizing every town and hotel we stayed in.  PLAYBOY was created and his reign as the thrill seeker in this band has yet to be challenged.  On  stage the guy played his brains out every night.  All eyes were on him.  Even at his worst (Norfolk, tooth pain killers) he could do laps around any drummer that I have ever met.  But off stage, Jeremy and I got to know each other really well.  As soon as the last note was played the challenge would be on.  It was a race to see who could get the drunkest fastest, who could steal the coolest thing from the bar, or who could have the best story by the time the bus was pulling away.  For a while we had a problem with bar glasses.   At my house I have three plates, 2 bowls, and 90 pint glasses.  It's quite ridiculous.  We also had a problem with chairs.  One summer we just kept stealing chairs.  The back of the bus was filled with chairs, underneath the bus was filled with chairs, by the time a few chairs made it into the trailer we decided to stop stealing chairs.  Now our new thing is towels.  for some reason we can't get enough towels.  There are towels on-stage, in the dressing room, on the bus, in my car, and in our suitcases.  It's always a challenge to see who can get the nicest towel and hold onto it for the longest.   
Through the years Jeremy has become one of my best friends.  I look forward to seeing him everyday because I know as soon as we get together we are going to start laughing.  On-stage we are united as the rymthm section for 3D In Your Face, and I couldn't think of a better person to be right next to me.  Jeremy plays his heart out every night, every note.  He takes his drumming seriously and he takes his fans seriously.  He has been an inspiration to me from the very first time I saw him.  For Jeremy walking on-stage is a holy experience and one that he never takes lightly.  I will always respect Jeremy for his love of music and his absolute dedication to Rock N Roll.  He is a true Rock Star and deserves to be remembered as one the greatest drummers to set foot in Omaha, NE.  I can't tell you how many nights we have sat on our tour bus and talked music and bands and just laughed until the sun came up.  I am always thankful that I have a friend like Jeremy Deans.  I am even more thankful that I get to play Rock N Roll next to Jeremy every night.

This week are proud to announce we will be celebrating Playboy's birthday with all you wild and crazy fans on Jan. 11th at The 21st Saloon.  This weeks them is Awesome 80's Karaoke Night with DJ Steve Lindzy.  What does this mean for you?  Show up early to the show and you will get your chance to sing on our stage with our lights and PA.  Also on our set breaks we will be giving you another opportunity to show the world your singing skills.  Sing whatever you want.  Show all the 3D In Your Face fans that you are a Rock Star as well.  There is only one rule to Awesome 80s Karaoke Night.  No Bohemian Rhapsody and no Theme song from Grease.  Not that I don't like those songs but they are long and they always get butchered.  So pick any song you want and rock the stage Friday Jan 11th at The 21st Saloon.  Saturday, I am excited to say that we will be playing our first house show.  I never thought I would see the day that 3D In Your Face would play a house show.  That's right have been hired to play in someones house.  Sorry this is a private party but you can bet your ass that there will be lots of great stories to tell you next week.  See you soon.

Sweat Pants, Killigans, and US Currency.

Hello everyone and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog for 3D In Your Face.  First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone around the world.  We made it through 2012 and things are looking brighter than ever.  I am proud to say that this week's edition of HAIR IN THE AIR will put us over the 2000 page view mark.  I just want to say thank you to everyone who has read this blog and supported 3D In Your Face through 2012.  We had an amazing year and I can't thank all you fans, friends, and freaks for your unwavering love. We ended our 2012 tour on Monday night in Rock Port, MO.  66 shows later, I am still hungry and can't wait to get back out there and show people why 3D In Your Face is the greatest 80's tribute band in the country.
But, I must change the subject.  As amazing as 2012 was, it's now history.  We can't keep looking back and reveling in the past, it's time to move forward.  It's time to set our sites on 2013. It's time to set our goals for this new year and take the next step in achieving our dreams.  Whether it be rock n roll dreams, peace on earth, or just simply making it through next week. All it takes is that first step, that first push, or that first glimmer of hope to make you realize that your dreams can be your reality.   I am a firm believer that you are never to old to stop dreaming.  You are the writer of your destiny.  Someone once told me "Never break up.  If the band never breaks up, than no one can ever say that you failed".  Sure this\doesn't apply 100% of the time but the theory is sound.  If you never give up and never give in then you will never fail.  Just recently Playboy and I went out to a neighborhood dive bar and we got confronted by a guy because we looked different.  He had a real problem with the way we looked and wanted us to leave his bar for no other reason than he didn't understand us.  We left peacefully and the situation amounted to nothing.  But the entire car ride home we were wound up to 11, screaming and carrying on like conquering heroes.  Now this surprisingly happens a lot to us and I never take it personally.  The more shit that we get the more it drives me to accomplish the goals I have set for myself and 3D In Your Face.  Little did this guy know, but his actions actually inspired me to write this blog and keep pushing myself to be the best musician I can be.
Everyone keeps asking me if I have made a new years resolution and my answer is a simple "no".  I don't make new years resolutions.  Instead I have made a list of goals that I want to achieve for myself and for 3D In Your Face.  I have never felt this much excitement or anticipation for a new year.  3D In Your Face is in a great spot and I aim to capitalize on our momentum and take us to the next level.  No one is going to give us anything.  But trust me I will fight for every inch.  I will play every show like it's Madison Square Garden.  Anyone that pays their hard earned money to see me play is going to get the best show I can physically give them.  Our goal is to play more shows in more states around the country.  To win over fans one by one in every city we play.  I want to get a guitar pick endorsement.  I want to get a drum stick endorsement.  I want to release our new album and have it succeed on our own terms.  Not because some record label got behind us , but because we truly believe in our message and believe in our fans.  I want to sell out the 21st Saloon before our residency is over in May.  I have never sold out a show in my life.  Mostly I want to prove that Rock N Roll music is still alive.  Beyond the hair and the makeup it all boils down to the music and soul.  Without the music we are nothing and I truly believe in 3D In Your Face and the music that we are creating. 
 What has Rock N Roll become?
Last night I was at the gym doing some laps on the tread mill around 11 pm.  The gym was empty and I was completely focused on my workout.  I was wearing a KISS shirt, Chucks and sweating profusely because I forgot my gym shorts and had to wear my sweat pants.  I was almost finished with my workout when Brad, the lead singer for The Killigans walked by me and grabbed the tread mill next to me.  Now just imagine this, Brad and I both running on the tread mill at 11 pm on a Wednesday night.  For those that don't know, The Killigans are a folk punk band from Lincoln.  These guys have seen and done it all.  I really look up to the guys in The Killigans and respect them as musicians.   I believe on that tread mill, in that gym, at 11pm we had a moment.  Few words were spoken but I think we both understood what was going on.  All I could think was that this was the most Rock N Roll thing I have ever been apart of.  It could have been worse.  We could have met in the locker room.  Thanks Brad.  

This is where I would post a pic of me in my sweat pants but you are going to have to use your imagination.

This Friday will be our first show in 2013.  Let the tour begin.  Friday, January 4th at the 21st Saloon we will be throwing our Post New Years Eve Hangover Party.  We are giving you the fans the opportunity to be apart of our show.  Confused yet?  This Friday we will be taking request from the audience.  The rules are simple.  There will be a pitcher on the front of the stage.  You right down your request on a piece of US currency and place it in the pitcher.  We will then pull out the request and attempt to play the song that is written on the bill.  My only stipulation is, NO LADY GAGA.  Your money will be refunded if you put a Lady Gaga song in the request pitcher.  Everyone in the band seems to think that the weekend after New Years Eve is going to be dead.  I want to prove them wrong.  So tell your friends, neighbors, and relatives to come out the The 21st Saloon Friday, January 4th.  Come celebrate the new year with us and most importantly, lets have some fun.  

I Still Believe In Rock N Roll
