Making a name for themselves

The Hard Left was written up in our newspaper, the StarTribune, last Friday:






The gig w/ guest harmonica player

Very, very cool! Harmonicas can add so much to a band's sound. Our group is probably going to add a harmonica player who also sings very nicely and plays a good acoustic rhythm guitar. However, with the loss of our lead guitarist and vocalist Mark, we are still in need of a guitarist who can play signature riffs and leads. SO... we're looking at becoming a six-piece band! Whee.... Bands are so much fun! I hope the Hard Left continues to find good fortune, because they are a very good band which deserves the notice it is getting!

That's great. Boy, to have the Kinks, Andy Partridge and Tom Petty all mentioned in your article is quite a tribute. It's definitely one of my favorite 2006 cds.

Thanks, guys! Yes, it is a very nice tribute.

Snave, Why did your lead guitarist/vocalist leave?

Snave said...

Our gutiarist/vocalist guy is no longer playing with us because he has had some family problems (custody issues re. his daughter) and needs the time to tend to his priorities. He's a great guy, and I am already missing the heck out of him. His daughter told me that he recently went to NY to learn more about how to promote himself and maybe get hired as a narrator... he does have a GREAT speaking voice. Anyway, he just hasn't been able to commit wholeheartedly to a majority of our gigs during the past six months. We all understand, he has to put his life and the welfare of his daughter first. Now comes the unfun matter of finding a replacement.

I'm sorry to hear that. I enjoyed watching and listening to him on the stuff you sent me. He was good. I wish you the best of luck in replacing him.
