Hello everyone and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official blog of 3D In Your Face. Thank you everyone for bearing with me during this very stressful time. I think this might be the wildest week yet this year. First things first. This week we are beginning our 2014 Fall/Winter tour. The dates have been posted here and we are getting very close to being booked solid until the first of the year. This is amazing news for everyone involved. No rest for the wicked. Our first show of the new tour and the launch of our "3 Sheets To The Wind Residency" begins this Friday, Sept. 12th at The 21st Saloon. A lot has been said about the new show. I'm not here to convince you to go to our shows. You wouldn't be reading this if you weren't interested. I am here to tell you that we have laid it all out on the line for this residency. We have put our heart and soul into this show and I truly believe that when those lights go down and the amplifiers start to hum (KISS reference) that those people in attendance will truly realize our passion and love for this music. On Saturday, Sept. 13th we are heading back to my hometown of Fremont, NE for a homecoming show at Uncle Larry's. We are very honored to have the amazing Black Saints from Milwaukee, WI opening the show. A true Rock N Roll band. It's an honor to share the stage with these guys.
The other big news I have is that we have partnered with 101.9 The Keg and The 21st Saloon to begin a new radio advertising campaign. We are starting something that no other band in Omaha has ever done. Starting on Wednesday, Sept 10th 2014 and running until May 2015, 3D In Your Face "3 Sheets Residency" commercials will air Wednesday through Friday. So keep your radios, car stereos, and cell phones tuned to 101.9 The Keg. The commercial will make you smile every time I promise you that. Get the sneak peak right here.
Now for the big elephant in the room. Since this is the official blog of 3D In Your Face and I am the author I want to level with you. I truly love and respect the 3D In Your Face Army. Without you people we couldn't do what we do. I don't take you granted and am honored to be friends with most of you. So with that being said, on Sunday we as a band parted ways with Jeremy "The Playboy" Deans. Jeremy was one of my best friends. I learned so much from him about being in a band, touring, and life on the road. I will always be grateful for his friendship and the wisdom he imparted on me. It was very hard for us to make this decision but we stand firmly by our actions. I wish Jeremy the best of luck and hope that we can still be friends in one form or the other later down the line. We had some good times buddy. You made me laugh harder than anybody else in the entire world.
Alright enough of the mushy stuff. With the ending of this chapter in our careers we are beginning the next leg of our journey. The first step is our new drummer. There is a new energy and vigor within our band. Officially we have named Dakota "Dax" Nielsen as the new drummer for 3D In Your Face. An outstanding musician and a great person, Dax has come on like a tidal wave of Rock N Roll power. One of those true believers in the power of music. I knew instantly from the first note we played together that this was going to be a great match. Sometimes you just have that energy. It flows through those 4 people in the room like a spiritual force of nature. Once again music has the power to unite 4 complete strangers and bring them together like family. Dax has been a key figure in the Omaha/Midwest Rock N Roll scene playing with Randal Zwarte, White Pony, and Achilles Last Band. Now a force to be reckoned with behind the skins of 3D In Your Face. Our journey has just begun my friend but I am very excited about the future. I am ready to burn this town to the ground (no offense). I am ready to show the world what 3D In Your Face has to offer. I know that once our fans see you and see that smile they will feel the exact same way. Time to show you off to the world. I said this to you the other day but, buckle up this is going to be one wild ride.
We will be officially debuting Dax to the public Thursday morning on The Crash Davis Morning Show on 101.9 The Keg at 8 AM. Tune in, call in, text me, message me, just let me know that you are listening.
