Hey there, hope you're well. It's been about a month since I posted an update here, and I wouldn't want you to think we were just sitting around, twiddling our thumbs!
First off, the Grumpy's DT residency has been going just fine as usual! These are always so cool. We're coming right up on Live Band Karaoke night - here are the songs you can request to sing the night of karaoke without having to email a request (sorry, no more requests are being accepted - we're all booked up):
John Anderson - Seminole Wind
The Band - I Shall Be Released
The Band - The Weight
The Beatles - Oh Darling
Black Flag - Nervous Breakdown
Garth Brooks - Friends In Low Places
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bad Moon Rising
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Who'll Stop The Rain?

Them - Here Comes The Night
Thin Lizzy - The Cowboy Song
Thin Lizzy - Runnin' Back To You
Undertones - Teenage Kicks
I make no promises that we will play these songs perfectly, but I do promise that we will be able to make it all the way through any of these! And that's 9/10ths of the battle.
(And of course, you could request any of our songs to sing. But would that be weird? That might be weird. "Rudes And Cheaps" wouldn't be TOO weird...!)
Our next full-length, Live At Grumpy's, has unfortunately run into delays at the pressing plant due to the increasing - rebounding? - popularity of vinyl. Look for an official announcement in early Spring 2016. ADD Records is handling the vinyl, Rum Bar is releasing it on CD. It may turn out that the CD version comes out a little earlier... or not!
We have many exciting things bubbling under the surface for April and May (a show with a power pop legend... a show with a legendary alt-country band...), so stay tuned, but in the meantime, see you at Grumpy's, eh? Make the Sunfly proud!
