I FINALLY remembered how to blog!!!!!
Current mood: ninja
Well, well, well.......I haven't blogged in about.......um, a long time anyway!!!!! How's everybody doing??? Wait, don't answer that....You can if you want to but chances are I'm not gonna hear you so......Since the last time we chatted alot has happened.....Holloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and a few Small Town Sleeper tours.......
I want to thank everybody who came out to support STS while we were out on the road the end of last year......We had a blast......From Wisconsin to Kansas to Arkansas to Colorado to California to Alabama to Georgia, oh wait, nobody was at the Georgia show, to Florida.....We met some really cool people and got a chance to hang out with some friends......I have to admit, Colorado was by far my favorite show....No offense to the other places but I'm from Colorado......Just about everybody I was hoping would come out to that show did.....It was amamzing.....To showing up in Phoenix hoping to get a chance to hang out with the DAUGHTRY boys......We get to the Arizona State Fairgrounds and they had already left.....Just when we thought all hope was gone, Troys' phone rings and who should be on the other end but Chris Daughtry.......Long story short, we got to hang out with those guy's at their hotel and it ended up with me, Derk and Chris Daughtry wrestling on the floor of the hotel bar......Yeah, that was a little odd!!!!! Out to California where we were surrounded by all of those fires they had this fall......Playing the Whiskey A Go-Go in Hollywood......That was surreal.....Playing the same stage as bands like Motley Crue and Guns N Roses was pretty cool!!!!!! Down to Florida where it was in the mid 80's when back home in Urbana it was in the mid 30's......I had a little fun bragging about that.......So, thanks to everybody who came out and supported us at those shows and thanks to all of the venues that allowed us to play their stages.....We're looking forward to getting back to all of those places.......
I know you've all heard this before, but please be patient with Small Town Sleeper......There are alot of big things on the horizon for us. We're just learning that things in the music industry don't happen at the pace we'd like them to. So, thanks for sticking it out......All of that said, if we're playing in your area anytime soon and you don't show up to the concert, all of us: me, Troy, Derek and Will are going to be crying, blubbering little boys.........Completely filled with sadness that you weren't there.....
As always, I leave you with a lil nugget of wisdom........"Spider Pig, Spider Pig.....Does whatever a Spider Pig does"......Chew on that for a while, it's delicious.......Oh, and the main reason I posted this blog.....is cause my Mommy wouldn't leave me alone about blogging.....Yeah, that's right, I said mommy......Don't judge me.....
Did any of you Canadian fans see Small Town Sleeper when they were touring with Daughtry this Summer? If you did I am sure you loved them and if you haven't seen them yet ..you gotta check them out!!
Saw Small Town Sleeper in Vancouver with Daughtry in August and was blown away…They Rocked! Had the pleasure of meeting them after the show. They were so down to earth,sweet and really fun to hang out with. Had a lot of laughs with them.
I just couldn’t wait for them to get back up to Canada…So I flew to Milwaukee to see two shows this November. And again …They Rocked! Had such a blast hanging out with them. They really are amazing.
Daughtry loves these guys so I’m sure they would appreciate our supporting them and showing them our loooooove …Canadian Style! Cuz We ROCK! haha
Ok- so check em out...
