July Came Back! Trey Anastasio Soon To Be Big Colorway Fan

“Music is the only thing holding this planet together.” –Jaco Pastorious

Hey all,

If the above quote isn’t apropos for the times we live in I don’t know what is. Thanks to Riley for bringing it to my attention, too. 

I just wanted to touch base and let you know that we are extremely excited to play two pretty high profile shows over the next ten days. July is a busy month for us and I don’t want to bog you down with details on all the dates. You can always go to our shows pageto find out where else we’ll be. But for now here’s our next two performances.

Saturday, 7/9 we will be making our debut at the Green River FestivalOur set runs from 5:30-6:15 and we’ll be playing on the Parlor Room Stage. Just so you know, this performance area is covered and safe from the elements. We are so happy to have been invited as ambassadors to the Pioneer Valley’s vibrant music scene. Don’t miss up-and-coming valley music maker Mikey Sweet on Sunday with our own, Riley Godleski on drums. 

Next up, on Thursday, July 14 we will be at New York City’s longest running rock club, The Bitter End. The club is in the heart of Greenwich Village and has had some of music’s most lauded legends perform on its stage. Our set starts at 11pm and the cover is only $5.00. If you have any friends in the NYC area and felt like either inviting them or sharing this Facebook Event Page we would be forever grateful. 

And finally, I had the great pleasure of hand delivering our CD, The Black Sky Sequined, to one of rock’s most influential (and one of my favorite) guitarists: Phish’s Trey Anastasio. That’s right, after the encore of their last show at SPAC in Saratoga Springs, NY this past weekend I was at the rail in the front of the stage and caught Trey’s eye. He motioned to me to toss him the CD and my aim, apparently, was good enough for him to catch it. 

Here’s a pic of him holding it below (you can easily make out the “Y” in Colorway on the right). 


Pretty cool stuff. These are the moments that make life interesting and I’m so happy to be here to experience them.

And I’m happy you all are, too. 

That’s pretty much it, gang. We have a ton of shows this summer and I’m excited for each one of them. But I’ll stop here and let you get back to what you were doing.

I’ll send another email after NYC and we can catch up.

Take care out there and try to love one another as best you can.

We’ll keep making music and moving through this crazy world.

With love and respect,
