So here is the official word: my original project, My (R)evolution, is officially no more. I made the decision for various reasons. The music is still available on iTunes and I have left a couple sites up (on myspace and reverbnation), but as far as live shows, our run is over.
I know someone will want to know why, and I wanted to get some of this off my chest anyway. Before I do, I wanted to thank all the guys who have been a part of it all. The various musicians: Gale Watson, Adam Marshall, Konrad Gorski, Mike Straussberg, Jim Ratcliffe, Jeff Calafiore, and Jesse Anderson. I also thank the bands and the venues who stood by us on this short chapter of my life. I also thank my church family for standing by me when I made the decision to start the band, and I thank them for standing by me when I decided it was time to disband it.
So what happened? A brief summary
After a long haitus (which I am getting a reputation for in the local scene), we worked hard to come back strong. We played a pretty strong set at Halligans Bar and Grill (West Ashley), and sure enough the clubs started calling for bookings, but in spite of that, I pulled the plug. Who does that? Especially when your band is doing well. If a band is tanked or falling apart, that is when you disband. Never when things are about to take off, renewed and re-energized. This came as a surprise (I'm sure) to the band members, but I am grateful to them for their understanding. I am presently working to write the full story, and I will post that soon. (to be continued)
