So it’s been really awesome starting this tour of the West Coast! So far we have been to Boulder Creek and Pismo Beach in California then Boulder City and Las Vegas in Nevada. We are learning so much about each other and about touring in general together as a band. Some things I learned about the bandmates are that Tracy loves Lord Of The Rings, Kevin still approaches the world like a newborn by using his sense of touch (putting things close to his face, mouth and ears), Jonas likes to eat, and Tyler thinks he is a dinosaur! The road is rough. We became very sweaty and dirty taking turns sitting in different positions, trying to sleep in the back of my used Chevy Colorado. Some highlights and lowlights in no particular order were:
-seeing deer on the way back from boulder creek and the clouds beneath the moon from the mountain top
-paying $15 for a subway sandwich in Vegas
-experiencing 120 degree weather with no a/c
-the busking angels (in Boulder creek women at the bar are encouraged to go around collecting tips for the band)
-carrying gear up and down motel stairs
-the kindness of fellow musicians and fans
-and some off-roading!
It’s been a wonderful journey like the college experience I never had!
Thanks to all the wonderful kind people that support our music and help with our expenses! We love you all so much from the bottom of our hearts! None of this would be possible without you whom we are doing all this for!
