2017 Was A Good Year For The Grass
The six of us played so much good music together and had a ton of fun doing it. We met so many new people who had such kind words for us. We were able to add a lot of groovy tunes to the song list, ran a successful Kickstarter Campaign, released our third studio album "Greener", and put out our very first video. It's hard to believe that after all these years all of our videos have been live! We had our album reviewed by Jackson Truax, writer for the LA Weekly, as well as being a featured review in the December issue of Relix. We also had "Hold Your Position" sent out to thousands of music fans in the Relix CD Sampler, as well as streamed at both Relix.com and jambands.com. Things are looking good at we get ready for a new year of singing our souls out and getting lost in the jams of 2018!
