Just wanted to take a minute to tell you about some great things we've got coming up…and to ask for your help:
- THE SPARK SUMMER MUSIC SERIES:
- The Trio is part of Spark's annual Summer Music Series. First, go here and vote for us: http://delawareonline.upickem
.net/engine/Welcome.aspx ?contestid=1593 . You'll see three TABS ('Welcome', 'Watch Videos & Vote' and 'Register'). Take a quick minute to register (it's very easy) then throw us a vote. It would help us a lot. On the video page they've got an mp3 of our song Drift and an "in-studio" performance of the song For The Rest Of You.
- Come see us play in the Spark Summer Music Series on Friday, August 8th at Mojo 13. We're doing a 90 minute set which will include some new originals, some great covers and a few surprises. Hope you can make it.
- The Trio is taking part in the first annual Unicity Festival in Middletown, Delaware. The date is Saturday, August 2nd and is an all-day event with over 100 artists including an appearance by director John Waters, comedian Sandra Burnhard, and headlined by the 80s group The Fixx. Details about our performance time and venue are still to come. General admission tickets are $15 and details on additional tickets can me found at www.unicityfestival.com. (Of note: My brother Allen plays bass for Paul Lewis and my brother Shawn sings for the band Cubane and both are also on the bill, making it the first time all three brothers have taken part in the same show with three different bands.)
- Finally, The Joe Trainor Trio is honored to be headlining the 101st annual Arden Fair this year on Saturday, August 30th, which is a great outdoor event that's free to the general public. Our performance time hasn't been nailed down yet, but will likely be in the late afternoon. It's a family event so kids are welcome. Come spend the day in Arden!!
OK…that about does it. Please give us your vote and we hope to see you at any (or all) of the shows above.
Take care and thanks.
