We kick off our next tour with two special JazzFest late-night shows at the Joy Theater in New Orleans on May 1st & 2nd, then the following weekend we will hit Fort Collins & Denver (2 nights) before heading across to the NE to play Brooklyn Bowl (3 nights), Fairfield, Portsmouth, Burlington, Cambridge, Baltimore and Philly before finishing up in Indiana, PA where we headline the Delaney Chevrolet Westsylvania Jazz & Blues Festival on May 23rd. See our tour page for details and ticket links.
Meanwhile Eddie is keeping himself busy mixing the new album (release TBA later in the year) and organising the Denver Payback which happens March 20 & 21 at Cervantes and features Eddie with Ziggy Modeliste, Oteil Burbridge, Robert Walter, Gabe Mervine and Matt Pitts.
Our winter tour finished up at the Hard Rock Cafe Live in Las Vegas where we played to an unexpectedly enthusiastic Monday night crowd. Big thanks to everyone who came out to see us in Jackson Hole, Arcata, Chico, Sacramento, Mill Valley, Petaluma, Tahoe, SLC, Boulder, Frisco, Aspen, Durango and the Gem & Jam Festival in Tucson. Thanks also to The Heard, who opened for us on most of those shows, and who gained a lot of new fans in the process. We're spending the next couple of months apart - time with families, a new album to mix & design, side projects to work on, etc... Eddie has some exciting gigs coming up in Denver - check his Facebook Page for details. The next NMS live shows will be at the Joy Theater in New Orleans for the second weekend of Jazzfest with more May USA dates TBA here soon.
Just arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, where we play at the State Room tomorrow (Tuesday) night. We've had some great shows so far, notably in Jackson Hole, Mill Valley & Petaluma - which all sold out - and in Tahoe, which almost did. The Heard from Chicago have been doing a fine job opening the shows, and/or playing a rocking after-party set. We've been skiing twice (without Pete) and are planning to go again tomorrow in Park City, UT. Next stop will be Colorado (Boulder, Frisco, Aspen, Durango), then the big bus takes us to Tucson, AZ for Gem & Jam Festival. We finish the tour a week from today at Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas. See tour page for all dates.
Our Wild West Winter Tour starts in Jackson Hole, Wyoming this Friday January 23rd and ends in Las Vegas on February 9th. In between we stop to perform in Arcata, Chico, Sacramento, Mill Valley, Petaluma, Crystal Bay (Tahoe), Salt Lake City, Boulder, Frisco, Aspen, Durango, and the Gem & Jam Festival in Tucson, AZ. You may have spotted something of a winter sports resort theme: this is because Eddie has developed a mid-life crisis ski obsession, and the tour was his idea (not Pete's, who hates the cold and will be hibernating when not on stage.)
We just finished a week's recording at a great studio in NOLA called The Living Room. We were joined by some amazing musical guests and have pretty much got a new album out of the process. Hurrah. More details to follow in coming weeks and months...
