Heading North! – Wayland Tour Log 3/19/14

The final batch of Florida shows on this run are over. The last show, at Aces on St Patty's Day, was one that we'll all remember for a long time. It was a benefit to raise money for an anti-child abuse organization.

We had so many friends come out! Some we've known since our first trip to Florida and others that we just met. It was so cool to see people from all over the state make the trip to say goodbye till next time!

I know there's a few Florida warriors even coming to The Intersection on April 5!

Get Ready for Chevelle’s Visit to Grand Rapids with Some Live Videos

I'm really looking forward to checking out Chevelle again in a few weeks, when they hit The Orbit Room on April 21st!  I've seen them a couple of times, and they're a great band.

The last time I saw them was on the Carnival of Madness tour a couple years ago, with Halestorm and Cavo.  Chevelle rocked the show, and I'm looking forward to hearing some of the new songs from their upcoming album, "La Gargola", which comes out on April 1st.  No joke.

Check Out Living Colour’s Rig Rundowns – The Most Complicated Setups EVER

The coolest thing about YouTube is the access we now have to guitar stuff.  Rig rundowns, guitar lessons, gear reviews where we can actually hear the stuff...and you can see how your favorite guitar players get the sounds they get!

And, of course, the lovely Rebecca Dirks.  Although she seems to have disappeared from all the recent Rig Rundowns.  I'm sad.

Check out this RR she did with the guys in Living Colour.  Not only are they great players, they perform at such a high level while navigating the most complicated setups I've ever seen!
