Sorry I haven't updated this lately. We have been really doing well and having fun and playing some really neat shows. We just did a show last night and a review company was out doing some live videos and they should be up shortly I would assume. I will try to get some links.

Something kind of funny that happened, Mike the singer champagne'd an entire water bottle. somehow it missed me by inches, but it doused the whole front stage including my pedal board and the bass player's pedal board. it made the stage slippery as hell, and the bass players rig went down. he ended up having to bypass his pedal board. He had been having a bad week to begin with, and I don't think this helped. I feel kind of guilty, call me selfish, but man I had a blast it was a fun show. these people showed up in front with these light sabers… it was totally insane!

What does a solicitation company do for you, Todd? Marketing?

No, silly. A "solicitation" company obviously provides the backstage hookers - Duh...

That's funny! Sorry so late on the response

Yeah basically they present your band or product to others. Radio, A and R, labels etc.

And our case they have selected one song that they're going to push. It is a new song that we just recorded. As soon as some people get paid and things get sorted it should be out on iTunes or somewhere like that. I will let you know for sure!

And I did not forget that I owe a few people a CD! The copy I have is encrypted or something somehow and I can't even copy it myself… It's kind of funny. As soon as we get a few people paid it will be all good. Soon!

By the way it turned out it had nothing to do with the water… It was in ohms problem with the backline cabs.
