THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NO. 13
JULY 16, 2021
New Guitars for the boys!
Meet the new additions to the ELM TREASON arsenal. Bobby got himself a Breedlove Discovery S Concert (left). Andy landed a Furch Blue GC-SW.
New Photos from Texas!
A few samples from a photo shoot we had down in San Antonio.
Here’s a link to a brand new IMPROVED AUDIO version of the show. We were able to solve the “low volume” issue.
Your Input: MUSIC TODAY!
No doubt about it… most of the people who visit our Facebook page love vintage rock and roll.
But almost everyone we have had the honor to interact with have bands and artists CURRENTLY making new music that they love, too.
How about naming two or three new or current artists you love listening to or seeing live.
(There IS good music out there. You just have to find it. It may take a little work, but it’s out there).
Here’s an ODD PICTURE
Probably a trio you would never suspect of ever getting together… yet, here’s the proof: Rod Stewart, Cher and Dolly Parton.
This was a FIRST
A real flashback here.
We hate to be repetitive. We know we shared a performance of our song “EVERYTHING” from our Texas Live Facebook feed last week…
But we are revisiting the song… with what is one of our greatest memories.
This clip goes back to 2014 (young pups) when we were promoting our first album, working out our new live arrangements, warming up our chops at open mic nights across New York and New Jersey.
This is one such open mic night.
We were running through our “new” song “Everything’ when something happened we had never experienced and certainly were not expecting….. applause during the song for a guitar solo.
At an open mic night!
Wow. We were floored.
We’ve been to hundreds of open mic nights and we have never seen anything like that, either as an observer or a performer. It surprised us to no end (not that Bobby didn’t deserve it, of course – Andy writing this)… You can even see the look on Bobby’s face as he thanks the audience.
From the dawn of Elm Treason, dig this!
PHOTO OF THE WEEK
Bobby and Andy taking a break from a photo shoot, Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, July 2017
A Rickenbacker Guitar Ad from back in the day. Rickenbacker, it says, is the Beatle Backer! John (Lennon) and his Rickenbacker “have been inseperable.”
And in case you didn’t realize it, Steve Howe (of YES fame) plays Gibson! (We love these classic ads).
