APRIL  2014  

This year's been great so far - been to both coasts of USA and Canada (including places like Cleveland where I hadn't played in over 9 years), Started a new band with pals Danny (Sexareenos/Spaceshits) and Missy (Sunday Sinners) called SQUIRT - I play drums and we share all the singing - We've played some shows already including a really fun one last month in Quebec City opening for Mark Sultan...Speaking of Mark, our band THE DING-DONGS will be playing a couple of shows in May in Canada - get our new album Rang Tang Ding Dong now (LP or download) so you'll have time to memorize the toons and sing along at the shows!... April is lookin to be another great month - Gonna be playin down in Florida for the first time in over 2 years, and then flying across to France and Belgium for a wild weekend... For merch, still got a few Bloodshot Bill Bolognese Balm chapsticks (Spaghetti flavored lip balm, made by the good folks at Bag Lunch) and the all new you-need-it-now Bloodshot Bill Bottle Opener (doubles as key chain too- wow!)...More soon, in the meanwhile, also check my FB page and IG for all the latest of what's up in my world, and the GIGS page too - who knows, maybe I'll be in your town next?
