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.

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.

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!

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:

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.

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.

Whole band goes to studio to listen to final mix, and special announcement!

Steve, our producer at Full Fidelity Studios had the whole band and listen to his final mixes one final time to see if we where happy with them. They sound so good, and make it worth the wait! Allison's vocals and harmonies are incredible, Nate's solos are out of this world, Mark's bass is solid, and Aaron's drums are tight and flavorful, and I don't sound too bad myself. We are really pumped and can't wait to release this CD. We are going to release a single later this month! Or early next month, to give you a flavor for our music. It's so hard to choose just one, because they're all awesome.
