Hi Guys!!! Wow, what a crazy week! We really experienced an incredible journey all the way from Providence to Austin and back! What we set out to do was make a mark and introduce Boo City music to people in some amazing cities across America. I'm happy to say we were very successful in doing such! We spent our first night in Asheville, North Carolina at the One Stop rocking out with really nice folks out there. Then we headed down to Beale Street in Memphis Tennessee. Memphis was pure magic. The people and the musicians really welcomed us with open arms. We got to play in two amazing venues...The 152 and The Blues City Cafe. If you ever get to go out to Memphis please visit these great spots and tell em' Boo City sent cha! Then after many sleepless nights and long hours on the road we finally reached Austin, Texas!! SXSW was by far one of the most incredible things we've all ever experienced. It really changed the scope of what we are capable of as musicians and humans in general. I'm happy to say that we made some amazing connections there. Boo City will be recording our first vinyl record in Nashville, Tennessee because we showed em' a little taste of what we're made of. We also got to perform in the legendary Castle in Austin where Janis Joplin used to live and play music....a truly mystical experience. In all Boo love is the True love was certainly spread like Austin wild flowers! We can't wait to get back on the road and take all of the things we learned into the next realm!! This journey was made possible by all of you and we are forever grateful for the love and the support you've given us to get real music into the lives of others. Our first set of prizes will be mailed out soon so check your mail boxes for a free digital download of Midnight Folklore in the next few weeks!!! Again thank you so much guys....a city can not exist without it's people!

Hi guys!! We are about 4.5 hours away from Austin and we have you all to thank!!!! It's been an incredible journey so far. We've stopped in Asheville, North Carolina and Memphis, Tennessee and given them our special brand of Black+Country+Soul+Rocksteady! The response has truly been incredible! It really is a little nerve racking leaving your safety zone for the first time....there is always the question...will they like us???? Well apparently they do! It's been really incredible bringing our music to new places and we're terribly excited to get into Austin and show them how the Boo gets it in!! We will definitely keep you all updated as far as how we're doing in the "music capital of the world" and look forward to sending out more updates! Till then...Austin ho!!!!!

We reached the goal on time!!! Thank you so much guys!! We wanted to let you know how the progress is going with the trip. The ride is rented, plane tickets are purchased, we have a place to stay, we have an official badge for rubbing elbows with big wigs, and a bag of trail mix!!! All of this is truly magical and our sincerest thanks to all of you that have helped Boo City along on this quest. We're also playing Asheville, North Carolina on the way to Austin. We're still trying to book as many gigs as we can play in Texas soooo if any of you have any friends in the Lone Star State please let them know we're on our way to make their world a bit more bootastic! We've got five days left for raising funds on this site and anything that is collected in that time will be put toward the ten percent fee Kickstarter charges for using its amazing site. Keep spreading the word guys!!! We will continue to update you all with our progress from the journey!!!
This is just incredible!! Thank you all so much for putting us within a whisper of our goal!! We are sure to make it!!
