Thank you to the wonderful Ms. Callie Carroll from WSILTV3 for joining us on stage at John Brown’s last Friday for her “on the job” segment! Check out the info here.
This May/June will mark my 10th and 11th trips to Europe for Rock’n’Roll and good ole’ Rockabilly! We will be in Germany for 9 days at the end of May into June, then back to the Midsummer Jamboree in Finland on June 24 and a quick trip to Berlin for the Roadrunner’s Paradise Race 61 the next day. Looking forward to a rocking tour and seeing a lot of old friends!
We are happy to announce that we are now endorsed by O’Douds Apothecary from Brooklyn, New York! O’Douds pomades and products rock, and keep us looking sharp and feeling good both on and off the stage. Please drop by their website and tell them The Number 9 Blacktops sent ya!
In the next few weeks I’ll start asking for your opinion on which Blacktops songs you want on the upcoming acoustic album. It’s going to be your call…anything off of Horsepower! Horsepower!, Daredevil Action, Cool on my Right, or The County Circle Track. I’ll tell the story of the song, some fun facts perhaps, and then break into a surely mediocre acoustic version of that said song haha! Stay tuned for more news.
Also, we’re planning a winter tour. Look for some new locations, as well as the old hot spots as well.
Until then, peace and grease ya’ll,
Greetings from scenic Southern Illinois ya’ll! Big stuff planned for the next 2 months. First off, check out the new shirts on the merch page! Guy’s red, white, and blue Blacktops logo shirts, and girl’s eyeball and hot rod racer shirts!
This year is packing up fast with shows. Next month we’ll be out east, hitting Rockabilly at the V again, and visiting some of our old pals in the Cleveland area for the first time in years! We’ll also be back in NYC at Beast of Bourbon, and playing Mark’s Party outside of Philly. In June, we’ll be hitting Wichita, The Rockabilly on the Route in New Mexico, and a handful of Texas shows as well.
May will also bring a new Blacktops CD! Its going to be an all acoustic album, and we’ll be letting you the fans pick which Blacktops hits you want to hear covered acoustic! I want to record it in one take, with cool stories, and maybe some fun facts about each of the tunes. Should be a great time!
Stay tuned for more news, and always keep an eye on the facebook events page for shows near you.
Peace & grease ya’ll…
