Hey there, everyone - I know it's been quite some time since we updated this thing, so I wanted to check in and let you know that we are still out here, keeping jive alive and rock'n'roll's heart is still beating! Hope you've been well.
We're mixing our 2nd full-length, and figuring out which songs to put on it and which ones to leave off. These are tough decisions! If you've seen us live in the past year, you've probably heard six or seven of the ten or so tunes that will make the album - but I guarantee you that we have some new stuff to drop on even our most devoted showgoing fans! Stay tuned.
Although we don't have any full band shows coming up soon, I - Nato Coles, at your service - have several solo and/or Coles/Beer (with Sam) shows coming up, including a couple sets at Awesome Fest in San Diego! I'll update this website as soon as I have the details of when/where I'll be playing. And Mike and Bill's other band - The Chinchees - are playing, too! They play on Sunday. If you don't have your passes yet, you better get 'em! And they've just announced that a limited number (fewer than 30!) one day passes are available too. Get 'em!
Ok, that's a wrap for now. It's good to shake the cobwebs off of this old website, huh? Cheers!
-Nato & the Blue Diamond Band
