The Solid Love Tour is finishing up its east coast leg, which can only mean one thing… We are coming home! I know everyone has been waiting for us to play another show back home with all the sounds and experience we’ve gathered. That reality is coming to be on July 21st at the Dakota Jazz Club. We are playing a late night show there and we are urging all our fans to come out and see us for our official homecoming show for the summer!
Our show schedule continues the following weekend in Wisconsin. We are playing a show with Irie Sol on Saturday and headlining the Harbor Bar Reggae Festival on Sunday! Anyone from WI who has not seen us yet will want to make one of these incredible shows.
9T / Harmony House
We had so much fun on the tour, we made a lot of memories, we met so many new fans, and made some great connections. Our best memory will be working so closely with the Harmony House band and crew. We managed to snag a shot with a few of them and the entire 9Tomorrows crew on the ferry from Hyannis to Nantucket. We will miss them but hope to see them all again soon!
One of our biggest dreams has suddenly come true — we are going on tour with the incredible Beres Hammond–The Solid Love Tour 2012–this summer from the end of May through the end of June. We will be hitting the east coast and parts of Canada. The midwest remains to be seen — we are hoping for the best. We are thrilled and honored to be touring with such a powerful force in the reggae world!
In support of the tour, we will be making a live performance on KARE 11 (MSP TV) on Thursday, May 31st around 11:40AM. Be sure to catch the interview with us. Afterwards, we’ll play a song or two for all the viewers.
We have a long summer of shows and appearances — our tour won’t last forever. We will keep everyone up to date on our travels, our upcoming shows, and any appearances we make. Follow us on Twitter for the fastest updates, and Facebook for any big announcements. We are playing new music at all our shows–a good reason to come see us this summer. Cheers!
Spring Reggae Jam
One of the largest reggae shows to take place this spring will be happening at the Fine Line Music Cafe on April 27th – The Spring Reggae Jam! Get ready for an all out one-drop, one night multi-band evening at the Fine Line. Performances by Peewee Dread (of Dred I Dread), Irie Sol, International Reggae All Stars, with 9Tomorrows headlining. There will be live DJ’ing and drink specials all night on top of the stellar local lineup. This is going to be one of the biggest shows all year–mark this show on your calendars now!
Make sure you check out our calendar for other upcoming spring time gigs.
Springing To Life
It’s not even spring yet but it totally is–I love it! We’ve been using the end of winter (and the nice weather) to write new music, rehearse, and play some fantastic gigs. Our video for Walk Through The Door feat. Beres Hammond recently hit the 5000 view mark after only 2 months of exposure. We are grateful for our wonderful fan following and to everyone who watched it at least 12 times.
To keep the ball rolling, we have been setting up new dates and filling some festival slots. Our next gig is March 23rd at Bunker’s downtown Minneapolis. We are going to play a great set and introduce some new things to everyone in the audience. We are going to make this Friday’s show a worthwhile start to the weekend for anyone who comes to see us!
Keep your eyes peeled as we plan to make some bigger announcements soon and throughout the next 6 months!
Walk Through The Door to Jamaica (and back!)
This past December, Dax, David and Steve went to Jamaica together to capture some footage and make music with the great Beres Hammond. Little did we know the wonderful relationship that would be created and all the fun we’d have together–not to mention all the amazing footage we’d capture along the way. We had a wonderful time and ate lots of delicious jerk chicken. We got a lot of work done and made some lasting impressions (I hope!). As far as our friendships–I think the footage everyone will see speaks for itself.
The footage we captured in Jamaica is part of our first official video, which will be for “Walk Through The Door (feat. Beres Hammond)”. This video will be released NEXT week on Wednesday, January 18th! We’ve created a trailer for all our fans to feast on in anticipation (view below). Help us spread the word! Tell everyone! Get excited–we are so pumped to share this with you next week!
Lastly, I want to note that we’ve canceled our Jan 13 and Jan 27 shows, however, we still have plenty of shows coming up, including this Saturday Jan 14 at the Studio B in Skyway Theater (above Barfly, downtown Minneapolis). See you there!
