I’m sitting on a very comfy ploof chair in Prescott Arizona, where we will be rocking out tonight at the locals’ favorite Grilled Cheese joint, the Good Good.
So far, our nonstop-to-the-west-coast portion of our Funk in the Trunk tour has been going great!
We raged in Peterborough, NH on Friday and made some new friends with the Van Burens from Boston (we’ll be playing with them again soon!)
On Saturday, Nick rolled down a hill at the Quabbin in western Mass.
Then we played a super last minute show (got the gig at 4am Saturday morning) in Palmer, MA at this little bar called Cindy’s. At the show, I discovered that you can perfect a Black and Tan by pouring a shot or two of Fireball in it. What should I call this drink? Leave suggestions in the comments. For now, I’m calling it a Dark Wizard.
Sunday, we had an amazing time at Boston’s CollegeFest. We met some great bands (shout out to Ripe!) and we even made some sponsors! Runa hooked us up with some clean energy drinks for the road. Also, we got free organic chocolate from Perfect Fuel! Check out our product test below:
Our cross country drive was relatively uneventful, we took a short break from driving in St Louis, visited an old friend and tried to make it to the zoo..but we missed it by about 15 minutes. We did see the Air and Space museum however! Apparently it would cost about $50,000,000 to get us and all our gear into space, so… this spring we’ll be starting a new Kickstarter project to be the first rock band in space! (We know you like the rock, NASA)
Ultimate highlight of the trip so far (for me anyway) WE SAW THE MO’FUNKIN’ MYSTERY MACHINE!!
Scooby and the gang were not inside unfortunately, it was getting towed, so I have to assume that they were riding incognito not far behind, but it still made my day.
