We have had another changing of the guard, as guitar wizard Colin Shore, formerly of Fat Aztec, has stepped into the title of ‘Mister C’ left by Mike Candela. Many new shows on the horizon, check the featured image above or the ‘Shows’ page on this website for a comprehensive list of upcoming dates!
We are happy to take a moment to announce that we have officially brought aboard Mike Candela as our new guitarist, now to be affectionately known as Mister C (Mister M was already taken). Be sure to welcome him at the next show you’re at!
We’ll be appearing all over the Northeast this March and April, and hitting the Midwest again in May, as well as the Southeast in June – look out for more Southeast dates soon!
A number of festivals have added us to their lineups already this year, including, but not limited to: Rock and Roll Resort at Hudson Valley Resort & Spa in Kerhonkson, NY, Alchemy Rising at Frontier Ranch in Pataskala, OH, Domefest in Bedford, PA, Disc Jam Music Festival in Stephentown, NY, The Gathering At Chaffee’s in Girard, PA, Buffalove Music Festival in Westfield, NY, Wild Woods Music and Arts Festival in Croydon, NH, The Werk Out at Legend Valley in Thornville, OH, and Pink Moon Festival in Rock Camp, WV!
Many more dates and summer festival announcements to come in the near future!
I’d like to start off by saying that this last 3 years has been one of the most special times in my life. Making music with my best friends Ben, Matt, Scott, and Mike while visiting at least 20 new states will always be one of the best memories I’ll ever have, however it is something I will not be continuing in 2016. I’ve made so many new friends this past 3 years, most of you musicians, and as many of you know, being away 100-150 nights a year can be as difficult as it can be fun. 2015 has been a wild year for Mister F and for myself, and 2016 will be even bigger for the guys. The Misters are 100% my best and closest friends, more like family at this point, and are hands-down some of the best damn musicians I’ve ever made music with. I feel like my bond with them will never truly end, as they all have my support as much as I’ve had theirs through this tough choice.
I’d also like to add that my involvement with Music will ALWAYS remain intact. Teaching and composing music, playing the guitar, and seeing my favorite bands are more than things I do, they are a part of who I am, and I will never stop contributing to this wonderful art. I plan to play and write as much as I can while building my student base at Parkway Music.
I will be playing 12/31 and 1/1 before parting ways with Mister F, and I hope to see you all out for these shows. Thanks everyone for your continued support with the group, I’m excited to see where the future takes these talented gents.”
We have a lot to consider at the moment and we promise to keep everybody posted on a permanent replacement. While we will miss Andrew dearly, we are happy to bring along our friend Mike Candela, former guitarist of Dale and the ZDubs, on tour with us for this January run!
