We Have Something Special

Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face.  Sorry I have been a very bad boy and haven't sat down to type out a blog in a few weeks.  I want to thank those people that keep pushing me to write these.  I know sometimes I get so tied up in my own little sphere that I forget that HAIR IN THE AIR is as important to you as it is to me.  I promise I will do my best even if it's just a little something here and there.  Communication is key.  HAHA.  OK for this weeks events we are really rolling out the Rock N Roll wagon.  This Friday, Nov. 13th our residency continues at The 21st Saloon.  We are throwing a 3D In Your Face 'Salute To Veterans' Show sponsored by Ugot2BU.  Three members of this band are vets and I know a ton of our fans are as well.  We want to say thank you in our own way by throwing you a Rock N Roll Party.  All veterans get in for free on Friday.  We will also be handing out 150 American Flags to you, the audience.  The goal is simply to say thank you.  We are working on another special surprise for Friday that may involve a video shoot.  So fair warning you may want to dress to impress or at least put on you American Flag Speedo.  Saturday, Nov. 14th we are FINALLY FINALLY taking a well needed road trip back to our 'home away from home' Kearney, NE.  The bar you formerly knew as Shooters has been remodeled, is under new management, and is going to be hopping.  This will be our debut at the new bar so we need your help spreading the word.  Kearney is always wild but when there is something to prove I've seen the crazy eyes.  If you can't make the trip please tune in to my radio show also called HAIR IN THE AIR on Saturday night at 10 PM on 101.9 The Keg.

So after this long without a blog you figure I would have more to say.  Well to be honest the shows have been going great.  The residency at The 21st Saloon has been packed to near capacity already on several occasions.  It's become the place to be seen.  I look to my left and I see the look in the other guys eyes as the crowd before us is screaming their heads off and it's pure magic.  Most importantly we have got back in contact with our friends and family that are from out of town.  It's become a destination and now people know where we are going to be like clock work and they have been making the trip.  That's worth it's weight in gold to me.  So as we head into the winter we are focused on two very important things.  Firstly our goal is to consistently provide one of the most entertaining Rock N Roll EXPERIENCES every Friday night no matter what.  Make it interesting, make it unique, make it creative, and make it special.  "You're only as good as your last show".  Secondly, the album is still looming over our heads.  That in itself is one of the biggest hurdles that we as a team have to over come.

So where are we sitting?  At this point I kind of have to play the bad guy and withhold information from you.  As I write this we have demoed all the songs except one late addition.  There is a CD only in the hands of the band members that contains 11 tracks of new material that have been played only  in our practice studio.  Last week at rehearsal we decided to set a recording date for January, after the holidays.  Most importantly the songs are great and I am already proud of the work we have put into crafting these 11 songs.  Like I said many blogs ago, this album will set the framework for the next tour and our next move as a band.  Focus, determination, and persistence.  If this was easy everybody would do it.  Just when I think I'm not sure how we will go any further we get that little bit of encouragement that we so desperately needed.  When it gets dark and believe me that happens a lot, the light that shows the next step always seems to come at the last second.  Sure I'm nervous, sure I'm concerned but I know that we have something special and I refuse to give up on that.
