Wedding Reception at The Leonardo


We had the opportunity to play at a wedding reception at the popular museum, The Leonardo. We were not only excited to be playing at one of the nicest venues in Salt Lake City, but the museum's Event Planner said that if she liked us, she'd suggest us for future weddings and events at the museum.

Preparation

Dean really stepped up for this gig. He's still getting up to speed, and he had to learn a lot of material for this gig, and he nailed it! While, we knew all the songs, it was essential to practice with Dean to be able to jive with him.
We learned a few new wedding appropriate songs. The bride and groom requested that we play "I Was Made For Loving You" by Tori Kelly feat. Ed Sheeran. We made an acoustic version of  "All of Me" by John Legend for slow dancing. Also some other love themed dance songs, "Brass in Pocket" by Pretenders, "Lights" by Journey, "Sugar" by Maroon 5, and "Some Kind of Wonderful" by Grand Funk Railroad.
We got the idea of incorporating lights into our shows. Luckily t
here's dozens of videos on YouTube, and my friend Tyler gave me lots of advice and lent me some lights. I'll discuss more details about what we did for lighting in another blog post. But, the lighting was essential to our success.

The Show

Congrats to Kristy & Steve!
The Leonardo has a large event center on the top floor. We setup early in the afternoon, because the room was going to be used for the actual ceremony as well as the reception. Aaron's cousins, the Ohumukini Twins, offered to be our sound engineers and they did a fantastic job. We were given the entire auditorium as our "green room". A room were we could put our cases, and eat our delicious catered spaghetti meal.
The audience was very kind, lively, and receptive. It was one of the most energetic crowds we've performed to. It was awesome to see all the colorful lights swirling over all of them. One of the guests asked to sing a Backstreet Boys song. The whole crowd loved it!
 The bride and groom afterward shook our hands and told us that they loved us.

Conclusion

It was an awesome show, we had fun, the guests had fun, and the event coordinator, Emily said that we definitely made her list for future performances. We also were able to get a 5-star review on GigSalad! Thanks to Aaron's mom, Kirsten for taking some awesome pictures! More of them here.

Utah State Fair 2017

This was our second time performing at the Utah State Fair; we previously played there in 2015. Last time was our last show with Ryan, the previous bassist. This year was Dean's first show with us. He's only been living in Salt Lake for 3 months, and he's already playing his first gig!

Growing up, one of my neighbors played at the State Fair every year, and he made it sound like it was the dream gig; the most high profile gig that any musician could aspire to get.



With that perception in mind, we were disappointed in 2015.  It was on a Wednesday night at 9pm, and we were performing to a nearly empty crowd. We were playing for free. Parking was
$10 for each vehicle, and we had to pay for our family members. And we received no food vouchers. It felt like pay-to-play, as we lost money playing that show.

This time around, it was a little better. We got paid, a modest amount. Almost enough to cover the cost of parking, and bringing in family members. Although it was a weekend, and there were quite a few people who watched us, it still wasn't a great turn-out. Probably because of the late hour, and Saturday is always busier than a Friday.

We were only given one delivery pass, so we met in the parking lot of a nearby grocery store, and crammed as much equipment as we could into Aaron's truck. The rest of us carried the rest of our gear from the parking lot. We got to the stage early, so we wandered a bit until it was our turn to get setup. The band before us was a Beatles Tribute band, made up of some older gentleman with some really cool hippie apparel. While they put on a great show and had every right to feel like a rockstar afterwards, they immediately left the stage to go mingle with friends and family, leaving all their gear on stage. We're only given 30 minutes for them to take down, for us to setup, and soundcheck. Which isn't much time at all. After a few minutes, it was apparent that taking their equipment down was the furthest thing from their mind. I had to wade through the adoring fans and ask each one of them individually to please take their gear off the stage. They seemed a little annoyed, but they did it. I think it was lack of gigging experience, not blatant rudeness.

Their delayed take down, made our setup a little more frantic, but we were able to get started and finish on time. I recorded a FB Livestream on my phone on a tripod. It turned out better than expected. We had quite a few viewers, and interactions. We also got some awesome pictures.

Overall, it was a good show. It was a good motivator for Dean to have a gig to get ready for. Mark assured us that Saturday during the day is much better. It still rubs me the wrong way how stringent they are with performers, they ask you to play for free or at a reduced rate, and then they try to get all the money they can out of you.

We'd like to officially welcome Dean, the new guitarist!

We'd like to officially welcome Dean Gallagher to our line-up! He not only brings his refined guitar skills to the band, but an amazing voice as well! He's talented, easy-going, and a lot of fun to work with. Dean is new to the area, originally from Philadelphia, where he was part of lots bands. We are excited for our debut performance with him tomorrow at the Utah State Fair, on the Xfinity stage, at 9pm.

Music Video Release for "No One Like You"

Before Nate left, we wanted to shoot a music video of one of the tracks from our newly released album. We let Nate choose the song, and we were surprised when he chose this one. He did so because he liked the positive message that it conveys. We also let him choose the spot where to film it. He chose Delle, Utah, a desert ghost town, with literally nothing but a gas station and an abandoned school bus. We ended up choosing Raji Barbir of TinyComet films to shoot our music video. We also hired my co-worker Mike to do some aerial drone footage. We are extremely pleased with the end result. The release turned out better than expected. We got over 8,000 FB views of the release weekend, and over 300 YouTube views. We've concentrated the majority of our efforts onto Facebook, trying to attract new fans. This music video has been the most effective avenue to gain new likes on our Facebook. This was a milestone achievement, and we'd like to thank everyone who was part of the process and who has supported us.

Physical CD's Now Available For Purchase!

We just recently released our debut LP album, "Into the Desert". It's available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and Bandcamp to stream and purchase. While having it digititally distributed is the modern way to release an album, there's something satisfying about having an old-school printed album. It makes the project feel more tangible. I'm proud with how the artwork turned out. I used some of the photos that my co-worker Michael Romero took at our music video shoot, in the Tooele desert. The music video is going to be released August 23, and it is going to be epic!

"Breaking Free" featured on EmergingIndieBands.com!

Our track "Breaking Free" was featured on http://EmergingIndieBands.com! Thanks to Tim for writing this article. Interesting perspective for sure, we've never thought of our music as Nashville Country… Check out their website and give them some love.

Read below: 




Details about our Album Release Party!

Releasing an album is one of the most rewarding milestones as a band. It's breathing life into the songs that you spent so much time carefully crafting. It's seeing the fruits of your labor after all that time and money spent tracking in the studio. It's a tangible piece of art that you can proudly share with the world. While artists get a personal sense of gratification, album release time is the time to promote and build hype.

This was our first professionally recorded album as a band. For us, we've been in the studio for almost 2.5 years, March 2015 - August 2017. We were distraught when we learned that Nate would be leaving before the album would be finished. It didn't seem fitting to not do something to celebrate this album's release, but we didn't want to train a new guitarist and wait for them to get up to speed. This album was long overdue. So we did a FB livestream.

I created a slideshow of pictures of all the events that we've had as a band, whether it was practice, gigs, or professional studio pictures. I synced the slideshow to each of the songs on the album. Our friend Victor Gamble interviewed us, and asked us songs about each song on the album.

It would have been cool to do all this live, but I don't have the experience, nor the equipment, so we pre-recorded this, edited the video, and streamed the final video. This way, I could spam all the groups I'm part of by sharing the video. The livestream seemed to go smoothly, but the rendered saved video looks like a bunch of jumbled puzzle pieces. So I reuploaded the video below. We were pretty happy with the stats, over 1700 views.

Thank you to everyone who watched! Thank you to Vic for interviewing us! 


You can download the album and find out more on our website!

Why we don't play shows in Provo any more...

It was March 2015, and we were doing really well as a band. We had just released our Starlit Horizons, EP and had been receiving good feedback from it. We were trying to play as many shows as we could to promote our original stuff. Our songs we wrote to be full, energetic, have anthem-like choruses, raging guitar solos, lots of crash cymbals, and harmonic guitars.

Allison's Scandalous Dress
We were invited to play BYU's Restaurant/Venue, "The Wall", part of their semi-annual Battle of the Bands. This was our first time playing in Provo, and we were stoked to be reaching a new audience!
We scoped the competition beforehand by looking at their social media to gauge our chances of winning. There were some good bands playing, and we were lucky to be sharing the stage with such talent.

I probably most-likely overestimated how good we were, at least at live performance. In theory, we had one of the larger followings, probably the best looking web presence (my opinion isn't biased by the fact that I do all of our media, I promise), and our songs had probably the most complexity as far as musicianship was concerned.
Us old geezers at the Wall with our stage banner!

We were pretty stoked, brought all our new stage banner, our fans, friends, and family and we were ready to rock! The first offsetting thing was that we were one of the last performers, and people
looked like they were ready for this event to be over. Everybody was sitting, and it was clear that they weren't going to engage in our high-energy music. Next was the sound guy, he insisted that
we didn't need a sound check. The guitars were so loud and overpowering. It was a small venue, and it wasn't enjoyable to listen to us. The sound guy didn't adjust any level on his mixing board during our whole set. It threw off our mojo every time we'd look out at the empty-eyed, reaction-less audience. (Besides my wife and sister who were jumping up and down by the stage.)

We got our score card back from the judges, and we placed dead last. Most of the comments were, that they couldn't hear us over the overbearing guitar.

Then we got this awesome press in some music blog of one of the concert goers.

It's true, Ryan the bassist at the time was in his early 30's. The rest of us were college-aged; in our early 20's. I just turned 24. I thought that was a weird comment coming from someone attending BYU.  Men at BYU go on missions and then begin college at age 21. I'm 6'5", and that might make me look older.
Allison was wearing a modest dress that would be fitting to go to Church. She was moving around the stage, but it wasn't sexualized at all. (You can see how she moves around on the video below)
I hope this blogger's discomfort of women wasn't shared by the whole audience that night. Then there was this gem:



His verdict rage at the end seemed to be directed at us. It's no secret that folk/singer-song writer/indy music isn't my favorite. Even though that genre was extremely trendy at the time, especially in Provo. I grew up on Rush and Dream Theater. More is more. I'm not a fan of super simple guitar or piano riffs, lack of instrumentation, lack of drum fills (if there's even drums), lack of guitar solos, lack of energy and the obsession of trying to be "original", by dressing like a hipster and trying to sound like The Lumineers. *

Whatever the case, we felt like a lot of people were extremely judgmental and it gave us a bad first impression of Provo. (We don't want to discount all the awesome support we got to everyone who went down to that show!) But, we're over it now.

Honestly, the main reason that we don't play down there because we have plenty of opportunity here in Salt Lake City; and we all live in Salt Lake City. When we weren't having as many opportunities to gig, we were willing to make the long drive down to Provo for a 20 - 30 minute unpaid set. We are totally willing to play there again given the right opportunity. In fact, we did a livestream concert at Rock Canyon Studios last June, and it was a blast, you can check out some of those songs on our YouTube!

*My statements on the indy genre were over simplified and generalized. I do appreicate the talent that goes into it, and blah blah blah. If you're offended, get over it. ;) I'm just one guy, what do I know?

Album Release Party!

The long awaited, highly anticipated album will finally be launched into the world! And we want you to be part of the party! We'll be doing this podcast style, like a radio talk show. We'll all be at Aaron's place, and we'll be live streaming the recordings, talking about stuff, and answering your questions! It's going to be epic!

We decided to release this album over a FB livestream! We came to this decision because Nate has left the state, and while we could train a new guitarist and release the album at a traditional concert, this album is long overdue and we cannot wait a day longer to release this! It's been in the works for 2.5 years!

Tune in at 7pm, August 9th!

Guitarist Auditions pt. 2 and New Professional Press Photos!

Auditions Phase I
Nate was is not only an awesome guitarist, but an all-around awesome guy! It's no easy task to find someone to fill his shoes. We took our auditions very seriously. We put an ad on KSL and told people by word of mouth. We had about 20 inquiries, and we had a lot of serious talent contact us. We used Google Forms to keep track of them all, and find out a little bit more about each candidate. We asked what they were looking to get out of the band, what experience they've had, and we asked them to send us a video of them playing Sweet Child O Mine. We figured that we wanted someone serious enough to make the effort to create a video, and someone technical enough who can play the guitar solo of Sweet Child O Mine.

Auditions Phase II
We only had a handful of people send us video submissions, so it was easy to eliminate the majority of the candidates. We extended an invitation for live auditions, and we started them yesterday. We invited each candidate to choose and play 6 songs from our setlist. We are going to finish the rest of the live auditions next week and make a decision. These guys rock, and it's not going to be an easy decision!

New Photos!
Our new music video is currently in the editing phase. But, my friend and co-worker Michael Romero gave us some still photos that he took while we were filming. They turned out absolutely incredible! You can view the rest of them here: http://albumizr.com/a/z9J0.

Nate's last supper at Rodizio Grill


In the past two weeks, we've played a concert, shot a music video, and did a live stream concert. Now we're finally ready to send off Nate to Arkansas. We've been so busy lately, that the reality of his departure didn't seem real until last night. We went out to eat at Rodizio Grill in Trolley Square. He was worried that there wouldn't be any Brazillian steakhouses (churrascarias) in his new home. We talked about all the good times that we've had, all the awesome things that we've done, and wished Nate all the luck in his new adventure. We all agreed that we might be able to get another guitarist in our band, but we won't be able to get another Nate.

Boa sorte Nate!

Be sure to check out our latest release of live cover videos!

Independence Day Party 2017

We played at an Independence Day party last year at a private party, in Park City. It was really the gig that kick started our band. Prior to that, we only had about 1 hour of cover song material. We had to learn 3 hours worth of songs. Howard, the host really made us feel special; like we were guests of honor. He loved us so much, that he invited us to play at charity event that he had later that month, and he wanted us to play at his Independence Day party, the following year. We graciously accepted. He left us a glowing 5-star review and kept telling us how we were his favorite party band. That was such a confidence booster, and has helped us feel like and act like a professional band.

We played again this year, and it was awesome as usual. One of the party guests remembered us and some of the songs we played and was really to see us again. The food was great, the people were awesome, and the fireworks were spectacular. We got a solid lead for another gig!

This was Nate's last gig with us. He moves out this weekend. It's going to be sad, and we're going to miss him! We're going to be taking a break while we audition a new guitarist, and get them up to speed. We'll be booking again in September.

Rock Canyon Studio Live - Nate's last public performance!


Rock Canyon Studio Live is a studio that has a stage, and is as big as a concert hall. It is not only equipped to record audio and video, but do livestreams. This was our first Facebook livestream. We were more interested in having professional live video sessions like we did last year at Full Fidelity Studios, but we decided to do the livestream just for fun. We didn't expect anyone to watch, but we had over 200 live viewers. We promoted it quite a bit; because this is Nate's last public show with us. Also, we have a diverse geographical fanbase, and this was the first show that they could be part of. We had friends and family in Brazil, Washington State, Idaho, and Louisiana who were all tuning in to the stream.

Gaynor is the owner, and main sound engineer. He was very friendly and experienced. He brought his video crew, which included Ronda the producer and video switcher, and 3 videographers. They were a lot of fun, and they did an excellent job. Ronda was cheering us on and pumping us up throughout the entire performance.

We were very happy with how this turned out and we hope to use these guys again! I'm a huge proponent of capturing memories in the form of media. We've learned so many covers, and we've definitely made them our own, and we can now remember forever how we performed them.

We're losing a band member...

We regret to announce that we are losing one of our esteemed band mates... Is it Aaron? Is it Mark? Is it Daryl? Is it Nate? Is it Allison? ****Dramatic duh duh duh***** Drum roll please...

Nate got a great job offer in Arkansas and he is going leaving early July. We sure are going to miss him. He always showed up to every practice and show 5 minutes early. He put a lot of work into his musicianship. We could always count on him to play on time, and on key. He was always looking to be challenged, and he was always working on improving his technique, sound, and talent. He brought a lot of positive energy to the band.


He was part of the band from the very beginning. We put up a KSL ad in the Summer of 2013. He had left behind a successful band in Brazil, and he had only been in the country a few weeks before responding to our ad. He had the skills, he was easy to work with, and he had one quality that many guitarists didn't have: a willingness to play modern pop hits, classic rock favorites, original music, and everything in between.

We've played a lot of shows, released some good music, and it's been a great journey. He was a driving force in making this band the success that it is today. We'll miss you Nate! Good luck in Arkansas.


This Tuesday, June 27th, will be our last public show together, and it will be livestreamed for the whole world to see! We're shooting a music video of one of the songs from our upcoming album, and we have an awesome Independence Day party that we'll be performing at.
We've already started auditions for another guitarist, and we plan on booking starting in September. We will still continue our shows at the Utah State Fair, Sept. 8, and Club 90, Nov. 3, and 4.

SoJo Summerfest Battle of the Bands

Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage and outdoor
The city of South Jordan hosted their first annual Battle of the Bands competition, at their SummerFest celebration. The Summerfest had food trucks, carnival rides, and a large number of events such as a 5k race, a tennis tournament, etc...  They had several judges, who looked at various factors, such as originality of songs, crowd participation, stage presence, etc... Their were two categories of performances, those under 18, and those over 18, and each category had 4 bands. Everybody that performed, had to submit 2 videos of live performance, and the top 4 submissions of each category were selected.
We submit two songs from Full Fidelity Live Session video series, and we made it!

7Bridges

The first band, 7Bridges, were a Brazilian country acoustic duo. They were not only musicians, but performers. They dressed up. Their banter was scripted, and did a great job connecting with the crowd. It was more of an entertaining show, rather than a couple guys playing a bunch of songs. They harmonized on all of their vocals. I think that in general it is hard for an acoustic group to compete against a full band, because the full band has a more full sound with bass and drums. They were confident, and they did awesome.


EIGHTH DAY

Aaron, our drummer, is away on National Guard duty, so my high school friend, Trevor Ockey filled in on drums. He did an awesome job, especially since we only practiced with him once, 4 days before the show. We struggled in selecting the perfect set list; we weren't sure what the judges would find the most appealing. We ended playing 2 originals, and 4 covers. The covers were selected based on which ones would highlight different attributes of the band, such as guitar solos, and vocals.


Cephas

Cephas, a folk/pop band, was really good. Instead of each member learning their parts to the songs, and playing those parts in unison, they took a step back and really focused on the quality of the overall sound. They played along to pre-recorded audio, which requires that their drummer play to a click track. We tried that route a few years back and it didn't seem to work with us. Also their bassist sang harmonies the whole song, every song, which Mark tells me is difficult.


Carver Louis & Old Lincoln Highway Band

Carver Louis & Old Lincoln Highway Band, a modern country band, was the last band. They're a Tooele band, which got me kind of excited, since I'm a citizen of Tooele now. They are currently finishing up an album at the same studio that we are, and the singer stated that they were going to release their album after it's mixed and mastered later this month, and I was thinking, "Yeah, us too." They had two electric guitar players, the singer played acoustic guitar, a bassist, a drummer, and another guy who played drums, harmonica, and mandolin depending on the song. It's hard to have that many instruments in the mix, but they sounded really good! People were really getting into their music. At one point in their show, they abruptly stopped playing, saying that there was something about the monitor mix not being quite right, and started on the next song.
They played well past the 25 minute limit, and it appeared that they had no intention of stopping until one of the event organizers ran up to the stage and told them to stop. Honestly, that's what we should have done, we had like 3 really good ones that we reluctantly dropped.

Verdict

Image may contain: 3 people, people on stage and outdoorI was excited to be playing in my home town, and I was very excited at a city government event, especially after watching the television series, Parks and Rec. Every band that played was awesome, and deserved to be the recipient of the award. Cephas was the winner. We were honored to perform with such talented artists, in world's awesomest city. (Although, Rome is a close second.) My wife got a participation medal for playing at SoJo fest tennis tournament, and she may or may not have let me wear it a bit.

Single Release Party (Pat's BBQ)

We released our single, "What's the Point", from our upcoming album yesterday, and we made it official with a single release party.


Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage and textPat's BBQ is a popular restaurant among the local population, known for their delicious food and live music. I had a Brisket sandwich, and it was divine!

The stage was much bigger than expected, and the sound was really good. An added bonus is that the restaurant hired a sound guy to mix us. There wasn't anywhere to hang a banner, making us grateful that we got the stand-up retractable banners.
Image may contain: 2 people, people on stage and people playing musical instruments
We got paid on tips, and people who came and listened to us paid a cover charge. (There's many rooms in Pat's BBQ.)

Since it was a sit-down restaurant, we played some of our slower songs.

The highlight of the night was playing with Addy. Addy is the daughter of one of Mark's co-workers. She likes music, and she plays bass. So filled in for Mark on Carry On My Wayward Son, and Starlight. It was her first time performing, and she nailed those songs. Makes me think that we're so used to performing, we take for granted the awesome feeling it is to perform.

It was a great show, thanks to everyone who came to support us, and we hope that you had as much fun as we had!

Addy's first show, and she rocked it!

Single Release, "What's the Point", from our upcoming album

Our latest single

What's the Point

Now available on:

It's been a long journey.

For the past two years, we've been recording this album, and it is finally finished. It wasn't easy, but it was worth it.

It wasn't easy.

We love every song on the new album, and it was difficult to just pick one single to release. After much deliberation and soul searching, we are pleased to announce the official release of "What's the Point."

But, we gave this everything that we got.

Energetic, honest, melodic. This song is one we can all relate to; Love isn't love if both parties aren't giving it 100%. We hope you enjoy this song and share it with your family and friends.

South Jordan Battle of the Bands Meet and Greet Show

We were one of 8 bands selected to compete in South Jordan's Battle of the Bands, which will be part of their Summerfest celebration. Today we had a friendly meet and greet concert at the MusicGarage, where each artist showcased two songs. Everyone in Eighth Day was super busy this weekend and nobody but me (Daryl) was able to make it. The show must go on, so I asked my cousin Eric Hughes and his friend Jake to perform with me. I play drums with them sometimes and thought it would be perfect. Check out some of Eric's original stuff: https://soundcloud.com/eric-james-hughes/

We called oursevles "Underpaid". All of the bands were super cool and talented and it was a pleasure to perform with them. Here's the two songs that we performed:





  MusicGarage is an after school program for youth, founded by Steve Auerbach. Steve and I go way back, when he first landed in SLC, he was the first director of the SLC School of Rock, and I was part of the first production 13 years ago. We did Pink Floyd's "The Wall".

Remember to support us at the June 3, at the SoJo Summerfest Battle of the Bands! If we win, we'll get $500!

The Cliff - 05/17

The Cliff is a new high end pub restaurant located on the mountains of Draper. The food was good, and they have an incredible view of the entire valley. This was a particularly exciting show, because we've been trying to book a show here since it opened. Allison works at the Cliff, and all of her co-workers very warm towards us and excited to hear Allison share her talents. So there was pressure on us as a band to not suck, because we didn't want to embarrass Allison. Luckily we are awesome, and we nailed the show. People were enjoying their food during our first set, and then the dancing began during our second show.
Nate and Ingrid enjoying the view and Balcony
We hired Vic to do our sound, and he did an awesome job. Ingrid took our photos, and they turned out awesome. We all had a great time and we hope to perform here again.
