On The Rebound Extravaganza Recap

Last night at the Federal Bar, the jump-off began for ON THE REBOUND. There was a great crowd and a great vibe. The band was introduced by our guest DJ, Richard Blade who spun the most amazing 80's set before and after. I have to express a lot of gratitude to the amazing musicians, the Inimitables as I call them, for their support. They allowed me to get unhinged. It helped that we were all in our 80s age of excess and extravagance styles. What an honor to share the stage with them and to share a lead vocal with Evie Sands on a classic Sam & Dave tune.

The lineup:
Adam Marsland (keyboards, guitar & vocals)
Teresa Cowles (bass, vocals)
Kevin Jarvis (drums)
and the singular and legendary Evie Sands (lead guitar, vocals and co-lead on Hold On, I'm Coming)

It was great having DJ Bonebrake (drums), Larry O. Williams (saxophone), and Bryan Farrar (guitar) in the house; even though they did not play. They all contributed a lot to the album.

The show featured the world premiers of several songs (denoted by *) from the new record. ON THE REBOUND will be available on Oct. 2! So get ready.

Last night's set list from the ON THE REBOUND extravaganza:

So Sophisticated *
A Talent For Loving
Your Majestic Rejection
She's My Go-To *
Our Love Is Known By Name
Done Lost My Mind
Supermodels With Gatling Guns
Hold On, I'm Coming (featuring Evie Sands)
Huckleberry Finn
On The Rebound

Special thanks to all of our friends, fans and family who attended. Spread the Good Word about the music you heard last night. Every connection helps take the music further and further into the Universe.

Big thanks to Paul Brown for video taping (clips to follow).

And extra thanks to the Missus (Happy Birthday!).

Love & Music,
