One Road Out of West Michigan – Wayland Tour Log 2/5/14

Texas is freezing!!! The cold air makes it painful to step off the bus! WOW! Everyone always says that we should be used to cold weather, being from Michigan, but it's something I've never gotten used to. There's no coincidence in the fact that we route our tours down South in the winter! Ha ha!

One Road Out of Michigan – Wayland Tour Log 2/4/14

Yesterday, we left Daytona Beach, Fla., and drove all the way to Jackson, Miss.

We split up the drive between Tyler, Chip, and Mitch. I spent most of the day responding to emails and planning upcoming shows. Mitch and I are organizing the time we plan to spend in L.A. next week.

We'll only have two or three days in a studio, and need to figure out how to make the most out of the time. We have a few new songs we'd like to record, but there are a few touch-ups we need to do on the unreleased recordings of "All Rise" and "No More."

One Road Out of West Michigan – Phil’s Wayland Tour Log 2/3/14

On Sunday, we ended up at a high-rise Super Bowl party that never turned on the game. Ha ha!

The view of the Atlantic Ocean from up there was just amazing and most of us never even noticed that the game wasn't on until it was almost over; oops!

I think Tyler Coburn is the only one that actually went in search of a spot to watch the game

One Road Out of West Michigan: Phil’s Wayland Tour Log 2/2/14

Last night was one of those loud, hot and sweaty shows where some people were kicked out before we played for being too drunk. Others were knocked out cold by security, and the stage had 15 floor monitors that didn't work! It was a rowdy night in Daytona Beach!  There was something in the air that brought the "crazy" out in everyone last night!!

We had a great crowd of dedicated Wayland Warriors in the front row that inspired the band to pull close together and play like it was our last show ever. Two warriors even celebrated their 40th Wayland show last night!

Photos From Jackie’s Finish At The Air Force Marathon

Last Saturday I raced in the Air Force Marathon, fantastic experience with some of my running friends!  I opened my email today to find some photos that were taken during the race.  When I look back to running I remember feeling really crappy but in these photos I just look like a goof ball!  Mile 9 I was flashing the ROCK ON sign... Mile 19 I decided to be a Wayland Warrior!  Then of course there's the finish... those are just ugh!

A Few Pictures From Wayland/Jackyl Show

I had way too much fun at the Wayland/Jackyl show this past Friday at The Intersection. WAY too much fun. In retrospect I probably should have taken things a bit easier. Either way, Wayland put on a kick ass show as did Jackyl. Of course being the "selfie queen" I woke up to a plethora of pictures on my phone. Check them out, If you were at the show then I hope you had as much fun as I did!
