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.
