January-February, 2008

January 2, 2008--Home--Happy New Year to everyone.  Look for exciting new things from Oreo Blue in 2008.  2007 was a great year for us as we ventured out into the world as a Trio.  Ironically, our first show of 2008 will be an alumni show featuring Brian Crowne (sax), Chris Payton (vocals), and Bryan Martin (guitar) showcasing the 6-piece Oreo Blue Alumni Band.  This show is this Friday, January 4th 2008 during the 6pm to 8pm Happy Hour @ George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, AR, USA.  It has been cold everywhere this first week of January, but it promises to warm up by this weekend.  Lord knows it will be blue-hot at George’s on Friday night.  

Plan on picking up a copy of the Morning News of NWA on Friday as feature editor, Antoinette Grajeda, will have a story on Oreo Blue for the publication’s “band of the week.”  

Now, I don’t want to get too far ahead here, but the 5th Annual Gary Hutchison’s 50th Birthday Party Tour will be happening the first weekend in February and carrying on for the better part of the month.  The first date (Feb 1st) at George’s will feature the Nace Brothers and Steve Pryor as far as I know at this point.  I have prior proof that these parties will be great fun.  Don’t miss them!  

I have been snapping a few more cell phone photos and thought I might share some more.  Over the next few months, I will be getting the Digital Rebel out and getting more high-quality pics leading up to and including the GH50BPT and the like…

Some of these pics were shot in Kansas City just prior to the Christmas Break during our shows at Cheeseburger in Paradise.  Man…the weather was nasty.
