This fall and winter we've had and will have the privilidge of giving our time and music to a lot of great causes. Feels good to give back. This Saturday we will be playing an Haloween event @Stan and Joe's that will benefit a girl named Melissa Smith who has had an incredibly hard ride these last several years. After struggling to beat cancer not once but twice she came down with rare neurological disease called Transverse Myelitis which left her paralyzed. Recently TheChive.com amazingly helped raise over $300,000 for Melissa to build a house that she can feel comfortable. You can read the incredible story here. So this weekend the community is hosting another fundraiser for Melissa and we will be playing at 5pm. If you are in the Annapolis or surrounding areas come on out the Stan and Joe's and party down for a great cause. Live music and fun events all day and night on West Street.
Glad to announce we will be heading to our old stomping grounds in Salisbury, MD for the Good Beer Festival on Sunday October 13th 2013. It's a two day festival and our set is 5:15-6:30pm on Sunday. Looking forward to rocking out in the place where we formed in 2006. Getting old!
You may have noticed we've slowed down a bit lately due to some recent life events and personal changes within the group. It's been hard to collaborate as a full band lately just because of our personal schedules and differences in lifestyles. These things happen in bands and by no means are we calling it quits for Pressing Strings. We are taking a bit to regroup and hopefully get back in the studio.
In the meantime I (Jordan) just released a solo record "Life of a Tree" in August and it's available on iTunes. You can check it out at jordansokel.com. Also it's available on Spotify, Pandora etc. and so is Pressing Strings! See you out there
Hope everyone is recovering from yesterdays devastating blizzard. Just checkin in to let whomever in concerns know we will be in the studio this weekend working on a new EP and should have it in your ears by spring. Get excited
