The blog function of this website is something that I have a love/hate relationship with… actually, no… touring interruptions due to Covid-19 is a thing I have an all-hate relationship with, the byproduct of which is: having nothing to blog about.
Just a quick note to say that we’ve got some really exciting things coming this summer, a bunch of which have been announced, and with a few more coming!
We really hope to see you out on the road this summer! Please check our up-to-date schedule for the Alberta area HERE and know that many more shenanigans are coming!
Bummed that we’re not coming to your town? Let’s set it up!
5 years ago today we played our very first show, at the request of a real nice gal named Jessi Toms who was working to get an online magazine off the ground. Today, Jessi Toms is our manager (among other amazing credentials) and we’re putting the finishing touches on our 3rd full-length album, and making some solid plans.
It’s been a short spell since we did a blog update, but there’s actual news to be shared right now.
We’ve announced 2 shows: April 1st at The Aviary in Edmonton w/ UpsideDownTown and The Energy Crisis and April 2nd at Mikey’s on 12th in Calgary w/ Ramblin Ambassadors. We fully recognize the trepidation around public gathering as things begin to open up in Alberta, but we’re happy to be back on stage nonetheless, and we hope that you’re ready & willing, too.
We also just put the finishing touches on a studio recording that’ll see the light of day later this year. Tracking went really well, and it’s in the more-than-capable hands of Lorrie Matheson at Arch Audio right now getting mixed.
We’ve got a few other shows confirmed, and more on the way, so please stay tuned!
Hey all, we’re excited to share this new Live-In-Studio video of ‘Out There On The Limb‘ from the Jerk Reaction Vol. 1 EP. We hope you enjoy it enough to share it with someone you think we’ll be into it!
We appreciate the support we get from our community so much, and we look forward to posting another video from this session in a few weeks!
We’ve officially started a working relationship with a manager, Jessi Toms. Jessi Toms is a firecracker of epic proportions and has been on the sidelines for every step we’ve taken as a band. She gave us our very first show (and several since) and has been a great supporter and ambassador of all things Confusionaires.
She’s also an incredibly well-organized go-getter with a myriad of experience as a business owner and operator and is a born networker and innovator.
We’re lucky to have her at the table and we’re looking very optimistically at 2022 and beyond.
We’re sitting pretty here, a week after Jerk Reaction Vol. 2 was released and seeing the digital orders come in through the bandcamp site is both encouraging and heartwarming as we enter the season of consumption. Thanks for lending us an ear and throwing a few bucks our way.
We’re excited for the coming year with several opportunities already revealing themselves. We’re looking forward to pushing another live video out the door here, which will be posted to YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook – so if & when you see it, please share it with your brood. It’s infinitely helpful to our cause. we’ll be releasing video content throughout the winter months as we prepare for spring and as we prepare to release more music in 2022.
Thanks to all who clicked & paid, or streamed “Jerk Reaction Vol. 2” this weekend, and also to those who came and saw Dave at The Cask & Barrell on Saturday afternoon. All in all, it was a great weekend! We truly appreciate the support we receive from all of you.
We’re excited to bring you all more music in 2022!
Fat Dave is playing a solo matinee show today at The Cask & Barrell in Edmonton. Performances like this are very few and extremely far between, so please stop in and throw a couple nickels in the bucket to show your support. He’ll be drawing from the Confusionaires song catalogue as well as the previous 2 decades of writing.
