Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face. Wooo can you believe it's already Feb. Where does the time go. We are already starting to gear up for the summer tour. After one hell of a weekend last week, the boys and I are ready to take on our home town. This is another huge weekend for us. First thing's first we are throwing our second annual Valentine's Day Ball this Friday, Feb. 13th at The 21st Saloon. Love is in the air and we are sucking it in long deep and hard. This Sunday we will be taking to the red carpet for our third trip to the Omaha Entertainment Awards. This year, much like last year, we will be being transported in style by our wonderful sponsors Party Express Bus Nebraska. The voting is done and there is nothing left for us to do but show up and make one hell of a hairy scene. I can't wait. Not to be out done by this week but next week we have something very special for you to look forward to. We have signed on to be the headlining act at the Pre-Marchi Gras fund raiser being held at Chrome Lounge on Saturday, Feb. 21st. But don't worry if you can't make Saturday the party on Friday at The 21st Saloon will be sponsored by Marchi Gras and we will be taking donations to help out the Sunshine Kids. More info on that next week but mark your calendars.
First of all I want to apologize for the length of last weeks blog. I realize sometimes I can get a little ranty, but hey this is our blog and when I feel passionate about something I just can't help myself. I will try and contain my rambling this week. As I said earlier this Sunday we are gearing up for our third visit to the Omaha Entertainment Awards. Much like the Grammy's this is an award show for artist and musicians in the Omaha area. We get the chance to rub elbows with our contemporaries, take a bunch of pictures, and mostly just laugh a whole lot. I say this every year but I don't really care if we win so much as we keep getting the invite to come back to the ceremony. The winners are voted on by a panel of judges and that right there puts a sour taste in everyone's mouth but that comes with the territory. There are no hard feelings. I love going to the ceremony. Just imagine a room full of people and when we walk in the needle scratches and everyone stares at us. That's pure fun. The most important thing is that we have been nominated by you, The 3D In Your Face Army, three years in a row. Now I didn't get into Rock N Roll to win awards. Every time we sell a CD, our song is played on the radio, or I see people in the audience singing our songs that is the biggest reward I could ever receive. The judges will have their opinion and I respect each and everyone of them. I'm not here to tell you which band is better or worse. I am here to pure and simply express the music that is flowing through my veins.
I wrote a few years back that "we would be the Rock N Roll representatives at The OEAA awards", but I find now that I was mistaken with that statement. We are sitting in a room full of the brightest Rock N Roll representatives in the city. Artist, actors, musicians, photographers, poets, the list is endless. In the scheme of things we are all creating Rock N Roll and I will be damn proud to be sitting next to each and everyone of them. Win or loose, the point is that we are all there to celebrate the creative spirit. We are all there to celebrate Omaha and all the things we have achieved over this last year. I hope that I get the chance to attend the OEAA's every year just to prove that the Rock N Roll spirit is alive and well.
