Howdy to all of you lovely people in Rosewood Bluff land!
Nice to see everyone, it's been a while!
First and foremost, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! We've all been enjoying the season with our families and friends, and hope you have too. In North Caroilna, it's been a toss up between 70 degree weather and ice storms (Ah, we love you NC! Don't change a thing!) so it's good to keep those short sleeve shirts around a wee bit longer.
As we make it through the New Year, we have some exciting news. The newest Rosewood Bluff album, Everything Except Goodbye, is RECORDED and MASTERED. We're working out album artwork and pressing as we speak, so don't you worry yourselves... it'll be here before you know it. :) And yes, we are so excitied and can't wait for you all to hear it.
We have a couple of shows coming up that I'd like to invite you to:
ELVISFEST! Which will be on January 10th, 2014 (that feels weird to write - 2014!) at Bailey's in Chapel Hill. We'll be taking the stage at 11:30 PM on Friday, so come say hi and grab yourself a shot of heartbreak in the finest way possible.
On Saturday January 11th, we'll be at the Iota Club in Arlington, VA with The Highballers for their CD release party, and we're thrilled. It should be an exceptional night of music, and worth the drive in our humble opinion. Show starts at 9:00 PM, and $12.00 to get in.
Other shows on the way, including our CD release schedule (Yippie!!!) and we'll let you know about those soon.
Thank you all for all your constant support and friendship... we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you all. Muchas gracias and much love.
Till then, stay warm and we'll catch you around your local honky tonk soon!
Yours in music,
