Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face. Well it turns out last weeks blog was quite popular. It got the highest amount of reads ever with right around 450 views in one week. Everybody was excited to read the dirt. Sorry I couldn't have made it juicier. Well first of all what are we up to this week? Summer tour is officially over for us but that doesn't mean we are slowing down. No my friends quite the opposite. This Thursday Sniper and I will be making a public appearance at Soldier Valley Spirits in La Vista, NE as special guest judges for The 101.9 The Keg National Anthem Guitar Competition from 6PM-8PM. This is an exclusive event and you need to listen to The Crash Davis Morning show in order to win tickets. For the rest of the week we will be auditioning the remaining drummers and we hope to have a decision on who is our newest member by Sunday. If you are still craving that big hairy Rock N Roll tune into my radio show Hair In The Air, Saturday night at 10PM CST on 101.9 The Keg. Also there is only one more week to vote for 3D In Your Face for 'Best Cover Band' at this year's Omaha Entertainment Awards. We need your nomination to be invited to the big party.
As I said earlier last Saturday night we ended the 2015 Summer Tour. This is around the 9th summer tour I have done with the band and 4th as the full time bass player. They start running together after a while. This years tour was very special. We were busier than any other year in the bands history. This in itself is an accomplishment and I know Sniper and I hope that next year is even busier. We honestly just love to play. It never matters how big the crowd as long as we have an excuse to crank our amps up real loud, it's all smooth sailing. This summer we played some shows that were first time adventures. Places we had never been before. These shows are always fun for me. A challenge. I feel like we need to come out firing on all cylinders. I want to just crush any doubt in their minds as to why it is that we were hired. The best part is that it's always the same reaction. When the band hits the stage the jaws hit the floor. For the first half of the set people just stare back at us. I feed of that kind of attention. It makes me jump higher and run faster. After a few jabs and upper cuts by the second set the party is on and we are steam rolling straight to Rock N Roll pound town.
There were also a lot of shows this year that were return visits for us. I love these shows too because this gives us a chance to judge how we did last year. I always say that my goal isn't to be the most successful band in history I only aim to double my success from last year. Say we play a show in a small town one year and 100 people show up, we are invited back the next year and 200 people show up. That to me means success as a musician and an entertainer. My goal was to never sell a million records, that just doesn't happen anymore but I aim to sell twice as many albums this year as I did last year. Every show that was a return visit for us was at least double the attendance from the previous summer. I say successful tour. Granted this year we had a hell of a lot of bus trouble but last year we didn't have any. Call that what you will. Actually no, I already know what you are going to say. Most importantly we I love the summer tour because it gives us an excuse to travel around and see our friends that we haven't seen in a year. We get to meet new people that become integrated into our lives and become part of this rolling Rock N Roll family. I wish I could remember all the names. Hopefully we don't have to wait a whole year to see each other again but if we do I can't wait for that moment we come rolling back into your town.
Thanks for all the great memories and here's to many many more.
