Ten Years Of Promise Of The Real
This poster was from the first ever run of shows I played with our band Promise Of The Real .. 10 years ago exactly !!!! Opening for Dad at The Fillmore San Francisco .. Tato had already been playing with me for almost 12 years in Hawaii .. I was a fresh college dropout when I met Anthony LoGerfo at an Neil Young show just a few months prior to this run of shows.. at the time we had buddy Merlyn Kelly playing bass and had just recorded our first EP called Brando’s Paradise at John Avila ‘s house in San Dimas, CA .. everything about the show was raw , but the songs I wrote and played then , 10 years ago , we still play live every night. Logan Metz was the first member of the band but decided to stay in school and follow and different path for the next 10 years – he rejoined the band just last year. Very soon after this Fillmore show, Corey McCormick joined the band and it’s been road life ever since .. my brother Micah has always been a member even when he’s not around …What an honor and a pleasure it is to have this road family to share my life and love with ! Thanks for Ten Years Of Promise Of The Real guys !!
