Breakin' All The Rules

Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face.  I must apologize for my absence.  It seems things can get pretty crazy around here and I keep finding myself without enough time in the week to sit down and write.  I'm back and more determined than ever.  If you are just catching up on the good news then you might not have heard that 3D In Your Face will be playing at Rocklahoma 2016 this year in Pryor, Oklahoma.  Ever since they started doing this event ten years ago it has been a goal of mine to play there.  Check that one off the list.  Not to mention seeing your name on the same bill as The Scorpions is a dream come true.  This Friday, Jan. 22nd we are teaming up with Joey Neon and our good friends at Neon Energy Drink to throw you a Rock N Roll Glow Bash at The 21st Saloon.  Expect the glow sticks, neon shirts, and black lights.  It's that kind of party.  I know how the tables in the back love it when we turn the lights down low.   Friday we will also be making a very special guest appearance at The Omaha Rollergirls Season Opener at The Ralston Arena.  We will be there around 6 PM to cheer on our team as they launch into their new season. Saturday, Jan 23rd we will be taking the show on the road back to Beloit, KS for a return visit to The Down Under Bar.  The Down Under isn't so much a bar as a ballroom transformed into a magical Rock N Roll palace.  Expect a big crowd and lots of small town love.  Don't miss my radio show also called HAIR IN THE AIR, this Saturday at 10 PM only on 101.9 The Keg.

Wooooo.  Another wild weekend and this is only January.  I love this feeling.  It seems like we are on afterburners all week long.  Today we got together to begin album rehearsals with our new drummer John "The Hammer" Lovings.  I was a bit nervous heading in but I have to tell you John knocked it out of the park.  He is catching on fast and his ideas where a breath of fresh air.  We still have a long long way to go but baby I just got the tip for just a second and I definitely liked it.  It's to early to make you any promises but we are planning a record release before we leave for Rocklahoma.  I was actually fly real high after rehearsal tonight and that's an amazing feeling.  I'm very proud of these songs already and we haven't even put them on tape.  Now the key is momentum and moral.  As it sits we are riding high on a batch of really great shows, we are heading into our tour season, and we have announced the biggest show the band has ever played.  While these are all great things the key is going to be keeping the spirits and the moral high between the band and the crew.  The crazier it gets the more stressed out everyone becomes.  I for one thrive on the craziness but it's hard for me to focus my attention elsewhere.

I want to publicly apologize to anyone that I  may have missed or not got around to in the last few weeks.  We are busy but that's never an excuse to not answer a message or return a phone call.  My friends and family are the highest priority and you mean the world to me.  I am trying to get better at talking to people and not blowing them off.  At least know in my heart I want to return ever message I get.  That was always the goal.  "Big Rock N Roll player to busy to answer"  that's BS and I won't stand for that.  My heart is with each and everyone of you even if my mind is going 1,000 miles per hour.  Someday we will all take a vacation, no phones, or computers, and certainly no alarm clocks.  For now I look back and realize that every day I have had a guitar in my hands.  Every day I am doing something to better this band.  Every day I represent you to people to the rest of the world.  Last Sunday 3D In Your Face didn't take home an OEAA award but that is totally OK.  I didn't start playing rock music to win awards.  I did it for the adventure and the passion for the music.  I did it to create something from nothing and achieve something everybody said was impossible.  Break the rules.
