Hope everyone had a great New Year! We definitely did! We got to play with our good friends Left Lane Cruiser at one of our favorite spots in Wisconsin “Everybuddy’s Bar” in Chippewa Falls, WI. It was a one of a kind celebration and might have been one of our best NYE shows ever. In October we finally hit Texas for the first time and got a good taste of what the state has to offer. we had a blast and will definitely be back! Met some cool bands like Greenbeard, Loudmouth Lisa, The Heroine, Whiskeydick, Husky Burnette , Hardcore Sex and a bunch more! Colorado was amazing too. Unfortunately one of the downfalls of touring is possible van breakdowns and we had a doozy in Iowa that prevented us from making our show at the Lift in Dubuque,Iowa. We ended in Chicago at Subterranean With Bands Black Glass and Werewolves at Hour 30. These bands killed and we had an amazing Sunday show to end the run before heading home! We are currently planning a tour for late April and may and will be posting dates as soon as we have them. I can tell you we will be at Steel in Motion hot rod festival again in South Carolina though! Stay tuned, we will be updating things getting ready for 2017. Hoping for good things this year! thanks for all the support and love! We couldn’t do it without you!!
