2014: Year in Review
It’s hard to fathom that 2014 is coming to an end, but it is, and before we step into 2015 we want to take a look back at 2014. In 2014 we released our second full length album, Wrong Side of The Road, we traveled more miles than ever before, and we played in front of the biggest audiences we’ve ever played. So here’s a quick look back at the year we had.
In 2014 we played in California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, and Alaska. We played shows in theaters, amphitheaters, faire’s, festivals, parks, restaurants, breweries, wineries, cafes, bars, pubs, taverns, night clubs, country clubs, radio stations, a gym, a house, and a parking lot. We played in the AM, the PM, on FM and on AM. We played birthday party’s, anniversary party’s, and weddings. We played benefits for fire fighters, a children’s museum, and dogs. We played Salmonstock, Oyster Grass, the White Eagle, the Fox & Goose, the Crazy Horse, and the Frog & Peach. We played for a bunch of hippies, with Trigger Hippy, and dressed as hippies. We played shows and festivals with The Dirty Knobs, The Mother Hips, some Hard Working Americans, as well as our Scary Little Friends. We played with Jackie Greene, Red Wanting Blue, and Soft White Sixties. With Hot Buttered Rum and Poor Man’s Whiskey, The Brothers Comatose, Brother Grimm, My Stupid Brother, and even pretended to be The Everly Brothers. We Became Owls, and we had an Elephant Revival with The Revivalists. We did that thing we do with Mike Viola, and practiced our scissor kicks with Lukas Nelson. We sang on stage with Mike Campbell and we sang from the crowd with Tom Petty. We got a little help from our friends like Ryan Avellone, Chris Jones, Bridget Law, Jim Lewin, McCoy Tyler, and Andy Zenczak. We got to shows by car, plane, foot, ferry, and even drove Lucinda Williams’ band around Alaska. We played The Catalyst, The El Rey Theater, The Fillmore as well as a high school gym (Presentation High rocks by the way.) We played in radio stations and got played on radio stations. We slept in hotel rooms, motel rooms, cabins, tents, our friend’s living rooms, couches, floors, our van, and something called the “pink sparkle room.” We played shows in front of zero people, 1,000 people, and everything in between. We met so many great people, played with so many great bands, and had fun every second along the way.
Thanks for the overwhelming support we received this year. We hope you had as much fun as we had in 2014 and that you’ll join us in 2015. We are extremely excited to start 2015 with a two night run at Don Quixote’s in Felton on January 9th and 10th. Joining us will be Taylor Rae, and The McCoy Tyler Band for the 9th and 10th respectively.
