We’ve been holed up in studios the last few weeks working on the new music that will be released in early 2011!

Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band, Fall Tour Dates and More!

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Now THAT was a summer tour! We toured from the East Coast to the West Coast to Canada and back again. We played in the rain, in the sun, in blues bars, in theaters at festivals and in ampitheaters and we can’t thank the fans enough for making each show so special! Our tours found us on the road with Gregg Allman, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Blues Traveler, G Love and Special Sauce, Jackie Greene and we loved every minute of it!

THANK YOU for coming out and joining us!

We’ve taken the last couple of weeks to rest the vocal chords, sleep in our own beds, warm up the tube amplifiers and rehearse a ton of new music! We can’t wait to debut a ton of new songs this fall that we are preparing for our next studio album! The fall tour will be making stops in select cities only so we hope you make the most of it and head out to the show nearest you! ROAD TRIP! We will make it worth your while. Promise.

Things get going later this month as I open up for Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band in the Midwest. It will be me all by my lonesome doing solo sets and I can’t wait! Derek and Susan’s new group is the baddest band in the land and you NEED to check them out. From there we will join up with Colorado rockers Kinetix to tour the Northeast before heading South and West again. Look for more dates to be announced very soon!

Thanks again to all the fans for all of the support! We love playing for you and can’t wait to see you this fall!

Rock on. Jamie, Ben and Brian
