Friends, Romeans, Country fans…

“Where the heck have you been Darren?”

I know, I know. I have been a tad bit tardy with the blog type information. But come on, Federal election (I hope you voted no matter your political stripe), The Papal visit to North America…
“Darren lets change the subject, you know how crazy people get when you talk religion and politics”
Okay Romeans good idea. Lets talk music then.
“Yes lets”
Well we have a new CD out now called Ride With Me with 7 new songs that Rob, Johnny Gasparich and I produced and it sounds pretty awesome if I do say so myself.
“We’ll be the judge of that Darren”
Yes Romeans, yes you will. Tell you what, why don’t you go onto your favourite music playing device and download a new copy, turn the lights down low, or turn them up, turn the volume up to 10, or maybe just 7 or 8 if you have cranky neighbours, and have a listen. Then get back to me. I would really like to know what you think.
Have you heard the new single Pushing Up Daisies on the radio?
“Yes”, “Nope”…
Okay, if you have great, call in to your station and make a request. If you haven’t, that’s okay too, call in to your radio station and make a request. It really helps Romeans.
“Okay Darren, for you anything! Okay not anything but you know what I mean.”
Yes Romeans, I know we have the best and most loyal fans on the planet. Hey Romeans we have a CFR show coming up Nov 11th at Cook County Saloon in Edmonton, AB. We have the info under events on the website and here is a great looking poster from our Facebook page. The Orchard are also on this show with us so you don’t want to miss out.
CFR
“So what else is new?”
Well I went and saw some great shows here in Edmonton. One was a guy named Daniel Romano. http://www.danielromanomusic.com/#home
Now this guy makes Country records, but his live show is pretty rockin.
“What was it like Darren”
That’s a tough one Romeans, I would have to say… lets call it new age Rockabilly. Daniel had a definite twang to the vocal but at times that real California country rock and roll thing going on all wrapped up and presented as a fresh sound.
“What are you talking about Darren?’
I don’t know Romeans, it was awesome!
Speaking of awesome, go look awesome up in the dictionary and under that you should see a picture of the Brothers Landreth. http://www.thebroslandreth.com
“ Okay I did that Darren but I don’t see their picture”
Okay, buy a new dictionary. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. These guys are one of the best things coming out of Canada. They blew me away again.
Well Romeans it’s been nice chatting, I have a chiropractic appointment I have to get to and then the dentist
yea!
Cling to your roots and keep an eye on the horizon.
KEEP SUPPORTING LIVE MUSIC AND CANADIAN BANDS! There are so many good ones out there.
