It's been a heckuva two weeks and I'm finally able to slow
down long enough to give you guys a well-deserved update.
Where to begin...
From November 30th to December 5th, I played 9 gigs
with the the
LoCash Cowboys. Yes, 9 gigs in 6 days!
It was absolutely INSANE but I loved every minute of
On the 30th we played Tootsie's in Nashville then immediately
hopped in the band van to head to Wichita (KS). We arrived
approximately 3pm (Thursday) to do a radio remote and
short acoustic set for a Toys for Tots Drive for the
local radio station and to promote the upcoming Toys
for Tots Free Concert on Monday. Following that we played
a show that night at Sam's Place and headed to Winfield
(KS) after the show. Friday morning I was up at 8am to
do a radio interview and acoustic set with the guys.
That was then followed up with a college acoustic set
+ q&a session, a high school pep rally full-band
concert, and a show at O'Kelly's in the evening!
it's about this time when any other band would have
to stop and catch their breath. However we kept chuggin
along (since we were only half done)! Early Saturday
we travelled to Jefferson City (MO) for a show that night
at Texas T's Saloon and then it was off to Kansas City
(MO) on Sunday for the pre-game Tailgate Party for the
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS Football Game! The experience was
amazing but absolutely the COLDEST gig I've ever played.
With temperatures in the 20s, I quickly found out that
YES you can play fiddle with gloves on! Afterwards we
stayed to watch the game, in which KC was victorious
over their long-time rivals, the Denver Broncos. After
nearly freezing to death, we finally got time to relax
in a warm hotel room. This however was short lived as
we had to get up early Monday morning and travel BACK
to Wichita (KS) for our final show in the run, the Toys
for Tots Concert with Zyba and Jason Aldean. Finally
after all those shows we travelled close to 13 hours
back to Nashville on Tuesday. All in all, the concerts
on our 6-day trip met to rave reviews and fantastic crowd
response. What can I say, they loved us!
Oh and before I close this email, a big 'Thank You'
goes out to all the fans thats came to the shows as well
as all the guys (and gals) who helped us out on the run!
That means alot to us!
Well until the next email (which looks to be sooner
