Hi Four80East Fans!
Has everyone adjusted to writing 2015 on their checks and at the tops of their assignment sheets? We hope so, and we hope that you’ve all been making the most of the first two weeks of the year so far. While we might not have the hoverboards that Marty McFly promised us, that’s no reason to sulk.
So, as it’s been a while since we were Off Duty, we’ve been staying productive by working on … *drumroll* … a new album! We’re not sure what to call it yet. “The New Album” perhaps. But suffice it to say that the important work — the part where we get down to making sweet original music — has already begun.
We’re planning for a summer release on this one, but we can’t promise a date just yet.
As for our plans for the rest of the year, we have confirmed three new U.S. tour stops in July, all within three days of each other! Friday, July 10th we’ll be in Winston-Salem for the Downtown Jazz Series, starting our show at 6:30 p.m. On Saturday we will be in Maryland, taking the stage at the Lake Arbor Jazz Festival at 6 p.m. Then on Sunday we’re in Louisville, Kentucky to play at Jerry Green and Friends at 8 p.m.
Check our Facebook page for more info on these events. And of course there’s more news to come, regarding both our new album and this year’s tour dates. We’ll keep you posted!
