New Haven, CT
Can you believe it? EPIC...WORLDWIDE LIVE!!!! Yup...the rumors were true.
We had our show from Toads broadcast live on the internet!!! So now the
world knows the truth...EPIC knows how to paaaaaaaarty!!!
I think I will start this entry with some words of praise. To Darik and the
rest of the boys...thanks again for letting us share your stage. We are
still having a blast! Next up on the list, I would like to thank the first
band on stage...Public Disturbance. Not only did these guys bring a ton of
people to the show...they got the place jumping early. Let me not forget to
mention that these guys show up and support us every time we play when they
are off. Thanks guys, we truly appreciate it.
Next I want to take my hat off to our former band mate Steve Savo. There
have been sooooo many rumors flying around about Steve's departure from the
band, and none of it was true. He put a great band together after his
departure called Hype. The band is fronted by Mark from Prezens...they had a
great melodic vibe with solid vocal harmonies and a rock solid sound. Steve
doesn't have to play like an animal anymore, and he sounded better than ever
on the kit. Congratulations on a great nite!!!! I'm sure we will share the
Okay....enough about everyone else...how about something about our show? I
don't suppose I have to tell you how pumped up we were for this night. We
have been building up to this show for weeks. Add in the last minute bonus
of having our show broadcast live on the internet, and you have major woodies
on all of us! We took the stage at our new 11:00 time slot with all guns a
blazing. It was actually kind of funny....Hype finished their set and the
crowd was totally digging them, but were they ready for us? Steve Savo came
up on stage and introduced us. We opened with Guerilla Radio, and I remember
looking at some stunned expressions...I had to laugh....we kicked it hard and
people started getting juiced. At one point in the middle of the set when we
played Little Black Back Pack and Inside Out, the crowd was singing so loud
that I could barely here Kevin's voice in the monitors. We actually had to
ask to have our monitors turned up....WAY COOL!!! So it's our biggest night
in a long time, so it figures that 3 songs in Dave busts a string...Murphy's
law....the show went on. I took a beach ball off the noggin...Jorge had a
beach ball land right in the middle of his drum kit during a major part of
S.O.S. Kevin almost booted during a song....OH WHAT A NITE!!! I gotta tell
ya...this is what rock and roll is all about. We had a blast. If you missed
the show, I believe it will be available on the internet for about a year
on www.digitalclubnetwork.com Thanks to all of you for coming down to the show...and
those of you who didn't make it....you missed a good one.
We hope to see you all at Tailgators Friday night!
