Default Busiest year yet...

As some of you know, I front a Celtic Rock act. It can sometimes be tough as a genre act, and other times be incredibly awesome and rewarding. It feels like the ball is finally rolling downhill and picking up steam. St. Patrick's Day is high holy day for a Celtic band. Our first year, we had a hard time getting a booking at all. Second year, we had prime bookings that re-booked us a year in advance for this year. This year.. Damn. We've got 5 gigs scheduled in 2 days, and they're still coming in. I just found out that one of the resorts we're playing changed the time of their event around our schedule. I'm both humbled and thrilled.

Bonus: The first of 2 new EP's should be ready for a soft release by then. We had fantastic energy in the studio, and post has been going ridiculously smoothly.

Congratulations indeed! Maybe one of these days I'll be at a festival and get to hear you play live.

I don't think many of the posters realize how hard it is for Genre music in Hawaii to catch hold. Sure you have your niche such as you have developed, but in large part it's hard to get gigs if you don't include Hawaiian music or Jazz in your setlist. Congrats on the heavy work!!!
