It’s been an exciting New Year filled with new places, faces and sounds. This past Friday we had our first show in Utica NY at Gordon’s Tap Room. The awesome stage and lights really helped us get in the mood and the proprietor is an awesome guy. We hit it off and it looks like we have a new ally in Central New York so the Utica area will be seeing a lot more of BMS. Last weekend we had our first show at Grizzly’s on Stratton Mountain with much the same results.
In addition to new venues and friends we have been toying around with an epic new tune. We’ve been slowly crafting it for the past few months and it’s finally taken form. There’s still a few small finishing touches and kinks to work out but it’s just about there. Now we just need to get it recorded. We’ve been a little reluctant to play it out in fear of diminishing the big release when the finished product is done but the past couple weeks we’ve been taking it out for test runs: a sound check here and a lick or two there. Last night, for the first time ever, we ended the set playing “Walk To The Edge” for a packed house at Harmony Cafe in Woodstock and it was a huge success. After we nailed the thunderous ending there was a moment of quiet while people took it in and all we heard was a stunned “Hell Yeah” before the crowd erupted in applause. It felt great to us and we got rave reviews from the audience. So no promises, but if you come out to some shows you might just be one of the first to hear our future #1 hit!
While new and exciting things are always fun, we’d never give up old classics like our bi-monthly residency at Harmony Cafe. We were back last night and it was great seeing Shao Wu, Dae Chen, Jackie and all our loyal fans down in Woodstock. Here’s some pictures in case you missed it.
