I want to drop you a quick line to say thank you for supporting the tour thus far. We have completed 14 of the approximately 60 shows and we are off to a great start. The first weekend of shows in NJ, NY, VT and MA were fantastic. In Eastern Canada we had some great nights in Halifax, Moncton and Fredericton. I was so happy to finally get back to the east side and it was awesome to see you guys out and share this new record with you. We had a few great shows in Quebec and Ontario. In particular I'd like to give a shout out to my new buds in Ottawa for a sell out crowd at Cafe Dekcuf.
Toronto was a special night. We performed songs from the new record as a 7 piece band that featured Todd Porter and company on horns, Marek Tyler on Drums, Stephen McGillivray on Bass and Blake Enemark on Lead Guitar. Yesterday, we crossed back into the US and played in Pittsburgh to a great crowd. This upcoming week we will be in the Midwest playing shows in Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Columbus and Minneapolis/St. Paul. I feel an affinity to the Midwest and I'm looking forward to these shows. I want to thank everyone for their warm welcome in the US. This tour has been such a good learning experience and a great opportunity for me to get on stage in these new cities. Currently, I am travelling with Stephen on guitar and he and his beard will be along until the Vancouver show February 23rd at the Media Club.
There has been some challenging drives due to bad weather but we remain motivated to make these shows memorable. Fresh socks, good vibes, vitaminC and new strings. Thank you for your support so far! To everyone who is up next in the Midwest and Western Canada we will see you soon!
Also I'm happy to announce that our album "Northcote" is now available for LP pre-order! As some of you know, we've been selling the LP off-stage at shows, and this will continue, but for those of you that don't live near a tour stop or missed out on grabbing a copy of the LP, you can pre-order it now on the BLACK NUMBERS ONLINE STORE.
All the best.
