From L.A. With Love
I know I haven't checked in all week. But we've been working prodigiously. Mainly, we've been sorting out our tour info and show dates for the United Kingdom. We are going to be announcing many shows in the coming weeks.
First up, Rush Hour Soul are confirmed for a headlining appearance (+ support) at the Blue Cat Cafe in Stockport for 28 May. The night before our dual IPO dates. We are also booking to play at Bar 1 Twenty in Huddersfield, date and time, tba. As mentioned there will be many other dates confirmed, but these we can tell you about right now! Be sure to visit our tour page at Rush Hour Soul.com or MySpace for the latest posted dates.
One other major piece of news we can give you is the title for our tour: "From L.A. With Love." If you've been to our official site you may have already known. Being James Bond fans, we felt it was only right. Plus, it's our way of spreading our own special brand of West Coast vibes to our new fans and friends in the UK.
We are also working on new merch designs that will be available shortly through our page on Cafe Press. Many will be done specifically for our tour.
There are talks in the works about a documentary being filmed of our tour. It's early in the process, it is an exciting development.
Bryan has been busy with our online presence at MySpace and we've made leaps and bounds making new friends around the world. Sounds like the British audiences are ready to get down with RHS! Way to go, Bry. Doug is currently up North coordinating a major fund raising event that we will headline. Keep on pushing, Doug. These guys are such a joy to be in a band with.
I was listening today to my iPod and a segment from our interview with Sara Routh on the Monday Show came on. What a riot. Hard to believe that was September, right before our CD release gig. If you haven't heard the interview in a while; or if you are a new Soul Mate and have never been privy, check it out. It's 45 minutes of hilarity, close-mic'ed voices and exclusive acoustic performances of some of our biggest songs. You won't be disappointed.
Since it is officially St. Patrick's Day a little Irish entertainment is in order. I'm going down to the Gig Hollywood, site of our next show, to catch the Piper Downs (and their rhythm section of the McGuire twins) in action. Always rocking, those Downs. Gotta get spiffy.
Love, Power, Peace
