Frenchi - that is one heck of an interesting connection to the band. Small dern world! Welcome to the Posse!


Even funnier connection....

My sister went to St Lawrence U and knew a couple of the guys, yet it wasn't until recently that she realized that Grace (Charlotte's sister)= Grace (& the guys at St. L)= Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. Dude....don't ask. :? :roll:

I pulled up a bunch of GPN videos on YouTube today and my kids spent the morning dancing. :D

Amelia's quote while watching: "Who is that? she's so cool, she sings and dances and plays instruments....and look at her cool boots!!!"

Grace just sent me this e-mail:

Happy Summer, weary hibernators! As the Green Mountain flora and fauna hits peak bloom in the early summer, so shall the Nocturnals crawl out of hiding to flourish for you all again!

It has been a particularly long hibernation for us in these past 5 months. But don't think that we've just been quietly slumbering our way through the winter! We spent a good part of the New Year writing, collaborating and recording demos for the new album. In early March, T Bone Burnett jumped on board as producer of the forthcoming project; a development that has launched our musical prospects into the stratosphere!! T Bone is a storyteller, a seeker of pure sound, who has produced albums with Robert Plant & Allison Krauss, The Wallflowers, and supervised the music for Walk the Line, O Brother Where Art Thou? and The Big Lebowski. The month of March was, however bittersweet. In the same month, we parted ways with our friend, and bass player of almost 5 years, Bryan Dondero. He will always be remembered and we wish him every happiness. With this change, we felt it was important to seize the opportunity to rethink the overall anatomy of the band.

With great excitement, we will be climbing onto the bus this week with two new Nocturnals: Bassist Catherine Popper and guitarist Benny Yurco. Catherine is, by all definitions, a "Cat". She has played with legends like Levon Helm, Micheal Stipe, Willie Nelson, Dr. John, Norah Jones and Ryan Adams and the Cardinals. She has wowed crowds with her solid style and her uncanny stage prowess and we are over the moon to have one of our longtime musical crushes joining our band of merry...people! In the spirit of merriment, our longtime friend Benny Yurco has also accepted the charge of 'sonic filler-outer' (aka rhythm guitarist and vocalist). His killer skills and unflappable spirit will no doubt bring the band a whole new bag! We'll be pounding the rock club and festival circuit all summer and fall with stops across the country, and, no doubt to a city near you! Check below for our summer tour schedule.

Notes from Grace:

5 tips for a world in recession:

DON'T BUY SHOES... Cut holes in milk cartons and walk around in them. They're super avant garde and the people who don't understand your artistic genius will give you their spare change.

TRASH YOUR CAR... if your car is filled to the brim with garbage, no one will want to ride in it with you. You can save on gas, get driven around by your friends and save yourself the daily pains of road rage.

STAY OUT OF MALLS... you know how it happens. You go in to get a phone charger, you come out with a build-it-yourself dune buggy and tickets to Celine Dion.

MAYONNAISE... it's the ultimate multi use product. Good for sandwiches, casseroles, tuna, your hair, your skin, polishing plants, polishing the floor, polishing the car, and making everything smell like a New Jersey deli.

SLEEP IN... set you alarm for 2013. You'll wake up in a new economy!

Happy Summer!
-grace
