Hi friends, one week ago today another killer storm left a trail of death and destruction through our home state Illinois, and once again REO and Styx will gear up our Rock to the Rescue machine to help take care of our own. We are putting together a benefit concert in Bloomington, IL on December 4. Tickets went on sale yesterday. We are determined to put together an awesome concert, full of jamming, people siting in with each other, lots of great Illinois and Midwest bands and artists coming together to raise money, as well as spirit, for the people whose lives were turned upside down by the horrific tornados. We will be announcing the big names who will be joining us in the coming days. It is our goal to sell out all 8,000 seats, and I will not rest until we sell every last ticket! We are gathering corporate sponsorship to get our expenses taken care of so all or the concert proceeds will be distributed by us directly to those in need...no middle men. This is truly a worthy cause, so come on, don't miss this once in a lifetime event...fly in for this one. More info to come.... PS. For more info please check the Rock to the Rescue website.
Hi friends, so the countdown to the official worldwide release of "Live at Moondance Jam" is on. You may have seen or heard one of us band members on TV, radio, print, the web...we are everywhere baby! We are all very proud and excited about the Moondance CD/DVD. I made the rounds at Westwood One Radio Network yesterday and was on air with old buddies Tony Scott, Bob Coburn, and new buddy Donavan McNabb, former QB with the Philadephia Eagles. We hit it off great, with the exception of our Chicago baseball team allegiances...I mean come on, how can a guy from the South Side not be a White Sox fan? Anyway, being a sports fan it is always fun to hang with big time athletes, especially down to earth dudes like Donavan, as well as Artie Lange's co-host and former Eagles fullback John Ritchie. Okay, that's it for now. Oh, if you are looking for something to do a week from Saturday and Sunday, (11/23-24), we are in Vegas for a two night stand at the intimate Orleans Showroom. "Live at Moondance Jam" is in stores of all kinds on Tuesday 11-19!! rock on, kc
Hi friends, who'd of thunk that Artie Lange would be an REO fan? He saw us at Byrne Arena in New Jersey on the Good Trouble Tour and has been with us ever since. He and his co-host John Ritchie are way into music and totally cool guys. I had a blast doing the show last night in New York City. I made the rounds at Sirius-XM yesterday as well. I will be the guest DJ for their Christmas channel, "Holly", as well as a stint on "Classic Rewind". I did a bunch of guest DJ things including VH-1 Classic "On Tap" with Nick Carter. I talked and sang my way all over Manhattan, a fourteen hour day yesterday, but it is totally worth the effort because we are so proud of our "Live at Moondance Jam" CD/DVD. I head to Los Angeles for another press day on Wednesday which concludes with a vist to our buddy Bob Coburn's "Rockline". Call in and say hello, check the website for details. Gotta run so I don't miss my flight...rock on, kc
