We’ve got a lot of changes in the LOI camp that we’re excited about unveiling to everyone at The Oregon Express who may not have seen us up in Troy or Columbus in the last couple months. First, we’ve got a great new keyboard player – Hazy of Hazy & the Rugged Child. Second, we’ve got a bunch of new songs that are ready to debut. And last of all, we’re pretty close to getting a new logo! On the flyer below is one of the final prototypes.
Another great facet to the show is that it’s being presented by our friends at Buckeye Music Magazine, so you know it’s going to be a great time. We’ll hopefully be doing some promo work with them soon to help spread the word.
We’re really pleased and excited about the direction that the band is going in and we can’t wait to get back in front of a crowd.
After the OE show, we of course will be turning our attention to November 21st when we get to open for the New Riders of the Purple Sage! We’ll be playing at Woodlands Tavern in our incarnation as Hurl & the Spins.
To close out the year, there’s a discussion of a holiday blowout in December. We’ll let you know as soon as everything gets finalized (keep December 21st open on your calendar…)
Yeah, so the title of this post is terrible but the information we have for you contained within is not.
We have 3 events we’re very excited about it November:
Wednesday, November 6th at 8:00 PM – Lost on Iddings will be playing live on WYSO 91.3 FM. We’ll be appearing on the fantastic show Kaleidoscope hosted by Juliet Fromholt. If you aren’t in the Dayton area, you can listed online at http://wyso.org.
The first order of business is a huge thank you to everyone who came out to the shows this summer. We’ve had a great time playing so far and we’ve been lucky to get a chance to play in front of a lot of great people so far this year. The Miami Valley Music Fest was such a great time.
The next order of business is spreading the word about our next show. Once again, we’re going to be teaming up with John Hurlbut, the renowned manager of the Fur Peace Ranch, to form Hurl & The Spins. It’s like Voltron, but with beers and classic rock and folk, instead of giant robot cats and outer space monsters. It’s going down on Friday, September the 13th (spooky) at Woodlands Tavern.
Our last order of business is a big welcome to our new keyboard player Bryan Russell A.K.A “Hazy” from Hazy & The Rugged Child. He’s a fantastic musican and already sounds great in the band. We can’t wait for you all to see the new lineup.
First, thanks to all the kind people who came out last Friday to the Oregon Express for our show with Will C and F.A.M.!.L.Y. and The Ambrogi Bros. We had a blast and were happy to help promote the Miami Valley Music Fest. We’re looking forward to seeing those acts again at the festival.
Speaking of… We’ve got $30 pre-sale tickets for the MVMF (August 9th – 10th). This low, low price (lower than online pre-sales) gets you in and camping for the weekend and allows you to be part of the one of the best musical events of the year. Last year was an amazing time and this year promises to be more of the same.
LOI is excited to announce that we’re working on some recordings that we’ve been laying down recently, live in our rehearsal area. We’ve got a few more tracks to do and we’re hoping to be able to share that music with you by the time the festival rolls around. It’s going to be an EP with anywhere between 3 and 6 songs on it. So far, so good.. we’re looking forward to sharing it with you all.
Coming up on June 28th, Lost on Iddings will be playing at the Oregon Express in downtown Dayton. It’s going to be the weekend of CityFolk, so there will be plenty to do all night and we’d love to see you cap the night off by hanging out with us. There’s pizza, drinks, and a kickass deck up top – what more could you want?
Sunday at Kuzzinz in Troy, we got the opportunity to be a part of a great day of music. We got to be on a bill with local Dead tribute acts Terrapin Moon, Arrows of Neon, and the renowned host of the Tales from the Golden Road radio show, David Gans. We got to hear a full day of heady music and listen David broadcast the show on Sirius XM. Great job by all of the acts involved and thanks to Kuzzinz for hosting.
Here’s us playing a few with Mr. Gans – Bertha, Sugaree and Harder They Come.
We’ve got a great couple shows coming up that we hope to see you all there at. First, this Wednesday, May 1st, Jonny Dreads and The Mystiks (featuring members of LOI) and Lost on Iddings are going to be hosting the Wednesday night jam at J-Alan’s. At 10, The Mystiks are going to bring the reggae, followed by a set of jams from LOI. After that, the stage will be opening up to any musician interested in playing. So, bring your instruments or just bring yourselves for a night of some great music.
On Sunday, May 19th at Kuzzinz in Troy, we’re pleased to announce that we’re going to be sharing the bill with the legendary Grateful Dead radio host, David Gans. In addition to being a long time keeper of the Grateful Dead flame through his noted program The Grateful Dead Hour, David is also an accomplished musician and songwriter. It’s going to be a night filled with the music of the Dead, with a focus on the acoustic aspects of the band. In addition to Lost on Iddings, there are going to be a number of other bands on the bill too and plenty of jams. Stay tuned for more details or join up on the Facebook invite to stay current.
Big thanks to Jackie O’s for having us out last Saturday. It was a full house and we were treated like kings. We had a great time. Thanks to Matt for recording the show and broadcasting it on UStream. If you want to check it out, you can see the unedited stream here - http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/29346301 .
Next up for us is Kuzzinz in Troy on March 2nd with Will C and the Family band kicking off the evening. After that, Winterfest 2013…
