Wakarusa Recap and More!

What an honor it was to share our music with tons of great people in the mountains of Arkansas at Wakarusa! We left our hearts out on the ground of the Backwoods Stage and the Riverside Stage and partied with everybody else the rest of the weekend. It truly was a milestone to reach and yet it has lit the fire under us – we are ready to show the world what CGTS is all about. One last thanks to Pipeline, the workers and volunteers and vendors and bands that made Wakarusa happen, and most importantly the fans that sent us there and saw us perform! We won’t forget this but the past is the past, and we are in love with the future. Catch us this weekend for 2 sets at Love Fest (www.lovefestinthemidwest.com) outside of Omaha, or at one of our other shows posted on this site. So many things are in the making right now, stay tuned for more.

Take care of yourselves, and others. CGTS out.

Music Video, Shows Added, and more…

It’s been a while since the last update, so here goes. First on the docket: we are making a music video! It’s still in the preproduction stages, but be on the lookout this summer. Speaking of this summer, we’ve added new show dates – highlights include the MO chainsaw grassacre mini tour and a late July tour. Add this to the existing awesomeness – Wakarusa, Love Fest, Festy Fest, String Break, and others – and we have got quite the summer ahead of us! Meanwhile, all of us are hard at work writing songs. I just had mega déjà vu. Whoa. Anyway…yes, the songwriters are songwriting, and the new stuff is our best stuff yet! We’ll be recording it possibly later this year, but come to a show and hear some sneak previews….In the short term, get at us on Friday at Lucky’s (apr 11), ICT. And lovely LFK, you are up Friday April 18.

Take care of yourselves, and make positive contributions to the world. CGTS out.
