Kickin It Back Opening Act: Finalists

vote-sidebarYou may recall we ran a little something called the "Kickin' It Back Opening Act Contest" in conjunction with our Kickstarter campaign... as a way to give back - to thank everyone for their awesome support - and to help budding artists make their own dreams come true!!

We've narrowed down our top finalists (no easy task, we assure you!)  And now it's up to you to help make their dreams come true – by helping us decide which of these up and coming artists will appear as our opening act for our special Kickstarter events on September 11 at City Winery Nashville, and on September 25 at Coach House, San Juan Capistrano!

VOTE NOW for your top two favorites – you can vote once per day, for up to two artists (through midnight, July 12). So be sure to keep coming back to cheer on your favorites – for the win!

Giving Thanks …

We're constantly blown away by your support, excitement and encouragement... and as promised, have posted our thank you page for all of the amazing souls that have supported our new CD via #Kickstarter. We really are all in this together, and can't wait to get new music out to you!! Thank you ALL so much...

San Diego, too

My neck is killing me. Last night we played our second corporate show in San Diego. We set up on a stage on the 15th floor in a large ballroom. We were told not to mention who we were playing for. I guess it really doesn’t matter, as long as we play well and they […]
