I'll have a PINK Christmas With You!

Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face.  Well it's down to the wire and you only have one week left in order to get yourself ready for Christmas.  The time went fast we are counting down the last few days of 2015.  I now you are sad to see it leave but trust me I believe 2016 is going to be one hell of a year.  This week, on Friday, Dec. 18th we are playing our last official show of the year at The 21st Saloon.  We will be taking a week off for Christmas and we will be catching you again the very first Friday of 2016.  For this Friday's show we have teamed up with our good buddy Joey Neon and Neon Energy Drink to bring you "Glow-In-The-Dark Christmas".  We are throwing another glow party with our new partners Neon Energy Drink.  I am an energy drink junkie and I believe that this product is one of the absolute best things on the market.  It's healthier than any other energy supplement you take and it glows naturally under black light.  Neon Energy Drink will be taking off around the world so do yourself a favor and get in on this before it's to late.  For Friday's party we are encouraging everyone to wear neon colored clothes, we will be shutting off the bar lights and replacing them with black lights.  Break out the glow bracelets, necklaces, and tongue rings.  It's time to get freaky.

For this weeks blog I wanted to write something positive and uplifting.  This time of year can be the one of the hardest times for anybody.  It's easy to isolate yourself and the lonely feeling comes on strong at the first hint of a Christmas Carol.  It's difficult to face the holiday season by yourself not to mention the cold weather and the lack of sunlight.  I get it.  I totally do.  The positive side is that no matter how lonely you feel you aren't alone.  The friends, the family, and most importantly the music almost beacons you back especially now.  The friends and acquaintances I have made through this band alone, bring an almost uncontrollable shiver down my spine.  The music brings us all together and that is probably the coolest part about this whole thing.  We come from all walks of life and from all backgrounds to rally around the guitar like it was some bright star in the night sky.  (Oh did you see what I did there).  It's true though we all may come for different reasons but in the end we are all there to have fun and to be around people that share the same common interest.  We may not be the perfect family but we are family all the same.

As a musician you always are aiming for success.  That word "success" is such a difficult word to describe.  Money, fame, gold records it's all the same.  For me I I feel it the most when I step off of the stage a sweaty stinking mess.  Nothing left in the tank and nothing more to say.  I feel success when I see The 3D In Your Face Army walk through the doors of The 21st Saloon with smiles on their faces.  I feel it when I get a hug after the show or a text letting me know somebody made it home safe from a show.  Those are the things I judge my success on.  After that it's all just business and I didn't get into a band to do good business.  Sure I want to sell albums but that's simply for the fact that I want people to hear what I have to say.  I want to express my love and passion for this music and this art to as many people as I can.  I want them to share in the celebration.  I think my favorite part of Christmas is going to Midnight mass with my mother and listening to the organ shake the entire church.  We become lost in the volume and that's when your mind becomes free.
