Happy New Year - Lots to catch up on!!

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic holiday - sorry it's been so long since I've posted, I've vowed to be better about it in 2009. Now, for starters, to catch you all up on some things.....we didn't win the Hollywood Music Award, in fact, it was a bit of a debacle - we stood in the red carpet line for 2 hours, then they closed it when we were next, and they announced our category while we were still stuck outside. It was the first year of this awards show so I supposed that accounts for the disorganization. Whatever the case, we got ourselves some cocktails and had a good ole time! Here's a photo of the band (minus Don, he had to work) at the awards show.....

Meanwhile, we had some songs placed on the CW show "Valentine," created by Kevin Murphy and starring the lovely Christine Lakin among others......the show is awesome -  the episodes are now available on, check it out - just click the link for "Valentine Episodes" over to the right.

We played a show with Zac Brown band at The Mint in December and had an absolute blast - the guys in the band couldn't have been cooler, and they were some of the best musicians I have ever seen. They did a version of "Devil Went Down to Georgia" and they did it at warp speed - it was insane! I couldn't believe how fast the fiddle player's hands were moving. Just freakin amazing. The crowd was great - totally high energy, and we even had a bunch of line dancers for our set. Good times!! Zac even asked us for a cd so we were pretty pumped about that - Zac - if you're reading this - we'll play with you any time you want buddy!! haha......

Hmmm, lets see....we then all headed off for the holidays to visit our families, and since we've been back we've been spending a lot of time in the studio recording our album. We hope to have it finished up in the next 6 weeks, can't wait for you all to hear it - we're very proud of the songs.

We're also gearing up for the Race to Witch Mountain premiere. I'm sure you've been seeing all of the billboards and posters everywhere - amazing right? It will be in theaters March 13th.  I've seen a screening of the film and I was so impressed - it is an amazing movie, and I still can't believe we're a part of this amazing film! I've posted a link to the official website - if you haven't seen the trailer yet, check it out, you'll be blown away!! We've also just signed on with a publisict for the band - Mitch Schneider PR - they are amazing, they represent some of the coolest artists in the biz (from Dolly Parton to Aerosmith and Ozzy!) - and also happen to be supercool people. We are excited and honored to work with them. Check them out at - they'll be helping us get the word out about BrokeDown!

Alright - at this point this post is getting a little long, but I'll be writing again soon.  To finish up, I'd just like to say - put Saturday March 14th in  your calanders - we'll be playing Molly Malone's at 9pm, it will be a celebration of the movie release, so be there! Alrighty, signing off. xo
