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 making friends. :)

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.

Until later,

your humble correspondent
