Just a few hours ago, we received our shipments of the very first copies of our newest CD: Drumstruck!!! We’ll be putting up sound clips and ordering information soon and you’ll be able to get your very own copy. In addition to our regular ones, we’ll have about 25 limited edition versions available. Our regular CDs are all made in Nashville, but the 100 limited edition copies were made at Chapman Recording in Kansas City. They feature a special imprint on the CD itself and are numbered. Both will sell for $15, but only the regular version will be available to the general public. We’ll give you the chance to get one of the limited edition versions in our next email.
We hope you can join us at the St. Louis Renaissance Festival in Wentzville, MO. We’ll be there May 15-16 and May 22-23. We’ll have copies of Drumstruck available and we plan to debut at least one new song: Fade Away. Even though the all drumming CD is just coming out, we’re already working on a number of new songs that will go on a future recording. On Memorial Weekend, we’ll play Heartland in Kansas. It’s really fitting, since it was at Heartland, 10 years ago that Devan and Avatar met and the idea for Elvendrums was born. In many ways, we’re coming full circle with the release of the new CD.
We’re eager to hear what you think of our first all drumming CD. We attended an event at Kaia’s preschool tonight and played a song or two from Drumstruck on the kids’ karaoke machine. One of the guests got all excited about the new Mickey Hart CD, and we were really flattered by that comparison.
We had such fun making this CD! For us, it’s a nostalgic look back over 10 years of drumming and an exciting glimpse ahead to some really new rhythms we’re starting to feel and want to duplicate.
