Fraid Knot in pre-production for new album

2014 Taylor 814ce First Edition Review

Hey everyone – this ones for my fellow gear heads!  I’ve had a lot of people asking me about this new guitar so I thought I’d put up an unbiased review of it in our blog rather than watching YouTube’s of guys trying to sell you one.  Power to them but after all, they have […]

The calm before the storm….

Well, after an insane July the guys are taking a well earned break for the next couple of weeks before we get back into our usual schedule.  Some of our favorite shows of the year coming up this month so it’s a great time to get rested up.  Starting off we’ve had the honor of […]

Stampede shenanigans and post flooding follow up.

On the eve of the “Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth” we’re resting  and getting ready to rip it up for the next 10 days or so as is the rest of the city for sure.  In the days following the flood that we’ll talk about forever in this city, life is slowly beginning to return […]

The morning after…

Well, in this case it’s more morning(s) after…  Wow – where to start???  We had an incredible run of shows over the weekend so we’ll do this in chronological order: Starting Saturday afternoon at the Ship & Anchor we “hosted” the afternoon jam.  Not really a typical “jam hosting” but we did our show with […]

St. Patricks Day Mayhem…..

We enjoyed a great show at the St. James Corner last night and as always a huge thanks to those who came out.  It’s a fabulous pub and we always enjoy our time there.  We took things easy this weekend in preparation for the upcoming week as this is always our busiest time of the […]
