I’m no web designer, nor am I particularly versed in HTLM, CSS, or any of the other web language acronyms. Should I become proficient in them, I may be able to update our website, but in the meantime, I’m going to try to figure out how to configure THIS site with the newest news and info. Then, I’ve got to figure out how to get our domain name to forward people here. Shouldn’t be too difficult, but we’ll see. Until then, here’s our latest newsletter:
How’s everybody doing? Hangin’ in there? Good to hear, good to hear. What have we been up to? Good question. Well, we’ve been booking shows and working on our follow up CD to 2009′s Gold In Rule.
A new CD?! We want DETAILS!
Yes, we’ve been mentioning it for some time, and while we would’ve like to have had it done before now, some things just can’t be rushed. The title will be Against the Current and it should be done by the end of summer 2011!

What, you want the highlights? How about all of them?! Okay, okay, we’ll break it down for you:
This Sunday, May 22, we’ll be performing for Super Adoption Day, an event put together by Citizens for a No-Kill Philadelphia. This is the single biggest pet adoption day in the city and we’re very excited to have been asked to be a part of it (thanks Wendy!) We’ll kick off the event with a 1 hour set at noon, then we’ll be heading to The Drake in Jenkintown for 3 more sets out on the deck from 5 to 9! Oh, and both shows are FREE.
Thursday, May 26, we’ll be debuting at the M-Room, 15 W. Girard in Fishtown (right by Johnny Brenda’s). We’ll be joined by Delaware’s Brixton Saint and M’Balia. We should be hitting the stage around 9 PM!
Another BIIIIG event will take place on Wednesday, July 20, when we open for the legendary Toots and the Maytals at The Blockley in Philly! Get info and tickets HERE, and get ‘em quick because let’s be honest, they won’t be around for long!
And last (for now), Labor Day weekend, we’ve been invited to play at the GetDown Music Festival in Mebane, North Carolina! The final lineup has not yet been confirmed, nor have we gotten the final confirmation on when our set will be, but we’re pretty stoked!
That’s it for now. Please check out some of the links and thank you for supporting Reggae music. Do Good.
