We go on at 7:30, Open Mic starts at 8pm.
Also, eventually the Main page will contain something other than a lame-ass blogish sidebar and our gigs. But for now, we're shoving it in your face like you crapped on the carpet.
That's right... Those wonderful scalawags from Afton would like us to play Red Square again, on Sunday Sept 18th. And you know what?
Thanks all who came out to the show at Red Square
. We had a great time and it lead to both the booking company and the club asking to have us back.
Sunday @ Red Square, we'll be going on at 8:00pm, but we'll be there for the whole event, so come on down and see the first bands starting at 6:30 and chill with us. Be there by at least 7:30 in case we have to go on early due to a cancellation.
Nearly showtime people! You can buy tix online right up 'till show time, but get em online and not at the door... it's $3 cheaper that way.
Also, either way you do it, let them know that your "favorite band" is The Ernst Project, so we get credit for your ticket. Even if were not your favorite now, we will be... so just say it already.
Welcome to the Awesome List, Jaimie Buffa. Sorry it took so long. I hadn't begged for money in a while so I forgot to look for it. Oh well, better late than mauled in a combine harvester, I always say.
So, anybody that didn't order tickets by Saturday, you really screwed the pooch on that one, cos you missed the $3 off promo. But, never fear, as a consolation prize, y'all can still get TWO DOLLARS OFF ADMISSION PRICE by using the promo code ERNST629 through July 12th... so... do that.
Hey all, only THREE DAYS LEFT to get $3 off the ticket price for the 7/31 show.
Finally had time yesterday to get the pics from the last practice up and captioned. Enjoy. Also, buy a ticket to our show. I have nothing witty to add, I would just like to have an audience.
I've had a litany of issues getting the pictures from last practice off my phone, but now that I have, all I need to do is find the time to actually upload them to the site... be patient.
In other news, if you're planning on buying a ticket to our July 31 show at Red Square, now is the time. Now through July 1st, get three dollars off the price of your ticket with the promo code ERNST093.
Awesome practice last night. We ran through a setlist for what is now a confirmed show (look to your right... ) and it went very well. Add to that an awesome special effects show from the heavens and dessert from a groupie and you've got a pretty good night.
Check out the details of the show, buy tickets and donate to us.
And pics from last night are forthcoming. I had a spot of trouble trying to get them from my phone to a computer, and will give it another go tomorrow.
Practice tonight, and I'm gonna try to get some more pics for y'all. In other news, Ben Chapelle donated to us again (for the third time!) So now I know that he's been to the site at least three times, which I think is more often than some of the band.
Praciced on Sunday 6/5, and actually have NEW PICS
to show for it...
Also, you might want to keep your eyes on the GIGS PAGE.
There just may be something awesome there in the not-too-distant-future.
Also, I've been in talks with another studio about recording and production. Hope to visit their studio soon and get the low-down.
Awesome practice last night. Steve couldn't make it, and Dave was late to the party, but Ian, Greggers and I started working on a brand-spanking-new song. I had started it a couple days earlier on a bass that is strung like a cello (on loan from everyones favorite Swedish meatball, Andrew Vackel), and we fleshed it out a bit before Dave came around and laid down some funky/fresh beats for it... very exciting.
Wow... long time, no update. Well, things are moving along. We're now set up and practicing in the ManCave, which is awesome, and we have a drum kit, and amplifiers, and EVERYTHING! Pictures to follow, I promise.
Also, you'll notice that there are some new names on the Awesome List
, most notably those at the top. If you want to unseat the Snells, then dig deep my friends, and give greatly.
A few new names got added to the Awesome List. Although, Ben did say his was contingent upon us naming the band Ernie & Surprise Buttsecks... I already have his money, and my wife has made it clear that she will be in no way a part of Surprise Buttsecks... any way you look at it.
Had a meeting last night at a studio in Sloanesville. It's a bit out there, I know, but not a bad little setup. Hope to look at some more soon to compare, but not a bad start.
Today, I sold a pair of lift tickets donated by the inimitable JW Rathman, the proceeds of which are already in the album fund. Thanks Jud.
Also, hopefully today, I'll have the Awesome List up and running... as a way to thank those non-band members that have contributed to the cause in some way.
A good practice last night. We ran through the "homework" that we had, and even jammed in a little bit of country. We'll see what becomes of that.
Practiced on a Monday night (2/21), in honor of it being Presidents Day, and also because Steve was in town, and he and Greg had missed the last practice.
Ian and Lyssa were absent from this practice, but Greg, Steve, Dave and I worked through some stuff we had done, a couple we hadn't, and made a solid plan for our second session for the week on Thursday, which I nearly bungled by forgetting that I had to work, but the universe smiled on us and canceled my shoot for Thursday... so all is well.
Evidentially, practice = snow, at least in the opinion of good ol' Mother Nature. They should pay us to practice in the Sahara. I'll let you know how tonight's practice goes.
Practice last night was good, even though Steve and Greg got waylaid. We soldiered on without them and worked out some kinks, while entertaining the first of what I'm sure will be many groupies.
Finally got the PayPal account squared away and operational, so those of you that have made donations, I have accepted your funds, and I give many thanks. They take a cut of everything, but free money is free money... if you'd rather not PayPal get their hands on any of it, you could always just give me cash. Cash is always accepted.
Pictures of last night's practice should be available very soon. I'll likely get to posting those on Monday, since My Tiny Wife will be out of town, and work will be exceedingly boring.
Minor tweaks and adjustments to the site today.
Maybe if I feel amitious I'll make a message board.
Either way, practice tonight, and I'm stoked.
The web-embryo officially got slapped on the ass and took its first breath today. Look, enjoy.
For the love of the gods... someone remind me to take pictures at band practice tonight...
ETA: Somone did. There's actually a picture of me answering the phone when she called.
On the one hand: kinda bummed that the snow didn't reach us. On the other hand: tonight- band practice!
"I'm hanging in there.
It's all I can do.
Although I cant remember whether to pray that the rope breaks, or holds.
I'm praying as hard as I can."
Maybe I haven't lost the ability to write after all.
