There's just somethin' about those hometown shows. We're beyond grateful for all of you who came out to spend your New Year's with us at Port City Music Hall, for Chris Ross and the North and the Ghosts of Johnson City crushin' it, for Ray MacGregor taking some wonderful photos to document the night, and Bob Tousignant for capturing the audio and making it live on archive.org - the show is currently up online in its entirety for any of you hoping to relive the night!
It was a joyous but bittersweet night as it was Brian Higgins' last gig with the band; our beloved drummer and pal has moved onto more air-conditioned pastures down in Florida with his wonderful lady and their sweet pup.
However, we can't express how thrilled we are to have Adam Cogswell taking over the drum helm after the carefully orchestrated passing of the torch at Port City (chariots of fire was playing, it was good). Adam's a badass dude and a renaissance man - an artist, Eagle Scout, a skateboarder, a snowboarder, a taxidermy aficionado, a hard-hitting rocker with a trainbeat to rival the Amtrak Downeaster and we're beyond psyched to have him on board.
2015 was a great year, but we're looking towards the future and we couldn't be more psyched. Thanks again to all of you out there showing support and keeping this train a-rollin'; couldn't do it without you!
Check out some of Ray's photos and come see us again some time...
