Greetings and Salutations!
With a break of a little over a month between shows, we have been
concentrating on expanding our selection of songs. John and I are midway
through co-writing a few new tunes, and we've also been mining through Tim's
back catalog of songs, looking for material that will complement our current
setlist nicely. Look for Tim to be well-represented when we next hit the
stage. He's a great singer and performer, and I am
excited about putting him out front a little more often.
In the meantime, John and I have also been busy cranking up
JUPITER once more. With our new rhythm section (Steve
Wesson on bass, Curtis Shapley on drums) firmly in place, John, Juli and I
rocked the house at Bogey's in Clearfield last week. Great
crowd, high energy and enthusiasm. Performing danceable covers all night
can't compare to the SoN experience artistically, but the
adrenalin rush and steady paycheck certainly do compensate. It's the best
"day job" I've ever had!
Lately I have been delving back into into the local scene after a bit of a hiatus, trying to see what's out
there and where we fit into it all. While it's somewhat discouraging to see
that the cohesion and high spirits of half a few years ago seem to be in short supply, there is still no shortage of talent out there. We're
looking forward to hooking up with as many cool, interesting bands as we can
over the following months. Our stylistic approach is a tad
unfashionable in some quarters these days, but so far it hasn't stopped us from
Finally, I am pleased to announce that the SONS OF
NOTHING debut CD will be available for purchase online
as soon as all of the I's are dotted and T's
are crossed with the distributor. I will be posting a link at this site so
our friends outside of the gig circuit can finally hear the recording that
started all this fuss.
