Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official blog of 3D In Your Face and The Midnight Devils. It's been a few weeks since the last time I wrote for you. I truly and sincerely hope everything is going well in your life. The reason I haven't sat down to write a new blog is because we have been so busy traveling and playing shows. It's been so amazing to get out on the open road and see so many great people along the way. Let me be the first guy to tell you not all the shows have been great but I would say at least 75% have been blow out rock n roll parties. Even the shows that aren't the best always end up being special to me because of the love and support you, or fans, show us week in and week out. I want to start this blog by saying thank you to all of you that have traveled to see us perform. You don't realize how amazing it makes us feel to see a familiar face in an unfamiliar town. Tonight The Midnight Devils will be playing a private party so for all of you Devil Heads rest up we will be in Des Moines next Friday at Hull Avenue Tavern for a free show. Then we will be playing Carroll, IA next Saturday night at The Piranha Club. 3D In Your Face is back in action this Saturday, April 1st. That National Rugby Tournament will be coming to Wayne, NE and we are the official after-party band for the whole tournament. Our party starts at 9:45 at Riley's Bar and Grill and you officially can't even enter the building unless you are wearing a toga. I don't make the rules. Even if you aren't brave enough to party with 1,000 toga clad college kids you can still get your fix by listening to me on 101.9 The Keg. I will be on Saturday morning 12 AM -3 AM and again Saturday night at 11 PM for my show also called HAIR IN THE AIR.
This week was very special for me. I had the opportunity to do some things and see some things that I never thought I would get to in my lifetime. Sometimes you get so bogged down with work, school, family, and life that you forget about the beautiful things all around you. You forget about the people, and the relationships that form the framework of your whole entire life. Since I've now started doing the booking for The Midnight Devils I constantly find myself looking ahead in the calendar planning shows months and months in advance. I completely forget that there is a unique and amazing world happening right in front of me. I spend so much of my time staring at a computer or staring at my phone that when I finally get the opportunity to unplug myself it absolutely blows my mind. This whole big thing we are going through each and every day really simply comes down to living in the moment. Experiencing even the smallest things and appreciating them for what they are. Today I got to listen to my radio boss interview a very very famous drummer. All I was allowed to do was sit in the studio with my head phones on and listen. It totally blew my mind. Who else gets to do stuff like this. 16 year old me would have been freaking out. I find so much unexplainable beauty in music, in art, and in nature. I love playing rock n roll music more than anything in the world but I also love looking at the stars on a country road, watching the sunset in a different time zone, and seeing that creative spark captured on a piece of canvas.
I may not always be the wildest, or the bravest, or the coolest guy out there but I take pride in knowing that no matter what happens on the weekend we always come back to Omaha with some of the best stories. It's about finding your adventure. It's about taking the path less traveled and making those unforgettable memories. If you take the chance and fail at least you can say you gave it your best shot. If you never even take the chance who knows what could have happened. I got into rock n roll music because of that one little tiny spark that made me feel different that everyone else in my 8th grade class. Those songs made me feel alive and gave me a reason to push myself. In the beginning I was looking for fun, new experiences, new people, new cities, new friends, and I've gotten all of that back and more in return. To this day when we leave town I'm always wondering what ridiculous adventure are we going to end up on this time around. It's never dull that's for sure. Life is about the stories we take away from the good times, from the bad times, and from the in between times. Today I feel more alive than ever and I haven't even plugged in my guitar yet. I'm ready for anything you can throw at me just know if it's that bad it's probably going to go into the book later down the line.
