Salmonstock II

Although we achieved one of our lifelong goals of getting on stage with a Heartbreaker, (Mike Campbell!) we are not calling it quits just yet and we are in fact quite excited about this Summer. We are very excited to announce tours to Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming among others, and of course our return to Alaska to play at Salmonstock for our second time! Check out some of our upcoming dates including a run up to Portland in May and stay tuned for more shows coming soon!
Here we are backstage at SoHo in Santa Barbara with the one and only Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and The Dirty Knobs.

Southern California Mike'd up Tour

We're still buzzing from some of our recent shows. Getting to play to a sold out crowd at The Catalyst alongside Jackie Greene was one of those moments that we will never forget. But it seems that we just keep receiving more good news. On April 18th we will be sharing the stage with one of our all-time heroes, inspirations, influences, and just favorite dudes, Mike Campbell. Campbell (lead guitarist for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) will be playing with his LA based band, The Dirty Knobs at SOHO in Santa Barbara and we will be opening the show. We are beyond excited for this and it will be a great way to cap off our Southern California Tour. Check out our other dates including The Mint in LA with Mike Viola.

Hog Heaven

We've had a noticeable hop in our step recently  as we have experienced some rather good fortune over the last few weeks.

A quick recap; We released our second full length album "Wrong Side of the Road" at our hometown venue, Don Quixote's, in front of the best crowd we've had there yet, then the next week we opened a sold out show at SLO Brew in San Luis Obipso for one our heroes Jackie Greene, and while we were on the way there we heard our song "Trouble Town" being played on 107.5 KPIG radio.

Request our song on KPIG by calling 831-722-2299

Whew! Not tooo shabby.

The support we've received and excitement we've shared since the release of "WSOTR" (yep, its now officially acronym worthy folks) has been truly humbling. Thanks!

We've posted a few new shows recently, including our first appearance at Hopmonk in Sebastapol, and a spot at Mint in L.A supporting a great songwriter, producer and performer Mike Viola. We've become rather fond of him since sharing a bill with him in Monterey a while back. Stay tuned for a few more announcements coming soon!

Everybody loves a topical video to tie a blog post together. It's a classic crowd pleaser. Accordingly, we will leave you with a video that portrays a recent event in our lives as  well as features a song written and performed by the aforementioned Mike Viola.
