PRESENTING: A NIGHT OF MICHAEL JACKSON’S THRILLER

Presenting: A Night of Michael Jackson’s Thriller To say that our band spends a significant amount of its time trying to copy Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” album would be quite accurate. There are two reasons why: first, the songs. “Thriller” is a pop music master class. Each song is a musical iceberg – on the surface sits deliciously effortless ear candy, …

PRESENTING: A NIGHT OF HARMONY

Presenting: A Night Of Harmony We’ve been accused of genre-hopping as a band. On our first record, you were probably best choosing the “other” option for genre on iTunes. It was all over the place. It has taken us about 8 years to find our sound. And in those 8 years, we’ve probably written songs in most every genre. The …

PRESENTING: A NIGHT OF FUNK

Presenting: A Night Of Funk “Funk is the absence of any and everything you can think of, but the very essence of all that is. And saying that, i’m saying funk is anything that we create in our minds that we want to do, what we want to be, but we don’t have the resources.” – Bootsy Collins

It’s our final residency shows! And we’re headed to the west coast!

It’s our final residency shows! And we’re headed to the west coast! And now, Nashville, two nights of music written by us (….eh, mostly) When we first moved to Nashville, we wanted to invite local artists to join us for some themed shows… sort of our way of throwing ourselves our own welcome party. However, we had no idea what it would turn …

A Hometown Residency and a Show with a King Hey gang, Great news! Our summer tour was such a blast.

The Shadowboxers 2015 Spring/Summer Tour PART 1!

The Shadowboxers 2015 Spring/Summer Tour PART 1! Hey ‘errbody. As you can see in the picture above, the sun has done wonders for our morale; we had a great time in Nashville on Sunday and with the way the weather is looking here in town, you’ll probably catch us walking down the street at least once or twice doing whatever …

First Tuesday is Back (at least for this month)

First Tuesday is Back (at least for this month), New Shows, and New Town Well gang, the move to Nashville went smoothly. No animals were harmed and we only lost one picture frame! Now that the ice from last week has thawed and we’ve woken from our Netflix-induced slumber, we’re so excited to let you know what’s going on with …

Here’s To 2015

Here’s To 2015 Pardon the morning drop-in…We hope this message finds you nice and hung over. Hopefully some of you are hugging a toilet right now…in a Denny’s bathroom. Ideally, one or two of you woke up this morning wondering, “Did I take a red eye to Montreal last night? I don’t even have my passport. And why is my …
