Hey SJC Fam! Hope you all had a great week! The guys in the shop put out two of the sickest barbershop kits I've ever seen, Baseball season started (the Sox could be playing better, but it's mad-early), and I'm STILL waiting on the new Kendrick Lamar record to drop. 

Shout-Out to my dudes in Grayscale, whi signed to Fearless Records this week! To celebrate, they released their new video for "Atlantic". Catch these dudes out on tour this spring with As It Is....I can't wait to hang at the Boston show later this month! 

My dude Mike Kazena's and his band Someday Drive just released their new record, and it rules! I'm so stoked on what Mike has been able to accomplish since last summer, when he was juuuuuuust a little baby intern at SJC! (Just kidding, he ruled and saved my butt all summer haha miss you dude!) Now just come tour up in MA so we can hang! 

Branden Steineckert and Rancid just wrapped up a tour of South America...looks like they played to a few people! Every picture from this tour looked huge, it's so rad to see that many people going wild for one of my all-time favorite bands! It's also pretty awesome that they got to play with Metallica! I can't wait until this summers Rancid/Dropkick Murphys tour! 

If you're going to Launch next week, let's hang! Zach and I will be there the entire weekend, along with Josh P. 

Congrats to long-time SJC Family, Andrew Cook & A Rocket To The Moon! This week they were given gold plaques for their single "Like We Used To". 

Welcome Niko Cortes to the SJC Family! Niko recently got this beautiful kit, and we couldn't be more stoked to welcome him. 

John Taylor Jr. and his band Kingsway just dropped a new video for "Worth It"! Some really awesome shots of his SJC kit in this one! 

Savanah Walker and her bud Parker, just released this awesome cover of Rage Against The Machine's "Bulls On Parade"! Not only does this song absolutely rule, but props on that Wu Tang shirt! Keep the covers coming Savanah, I love this one! 

Shout-Out to our dude Alex De Renzis and this super rad new smoked black acrylyc / walnut satin stain hybrid snare! 

Anybody want to come with me to Amsterdam? This show will be insane! Frank Zummo and the Sum41 boys have been crushing the tour-game since they dropped their new record last fall. 

Hey CA, you want to be a member of Street Drum Corps?! 

"Street Drum Corps is seeking new DRUMMERS in NORTHERN & SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA for the upcoming 2017 Show Season!
Street Drum Corps is a world-renowned, high energy, drum and percussion ensemble formed in Los Angeles in 2004. We perform on musical tours and at performing art centers, festivals, theme parks, sporting events, fairs, military bases, private parties, schools and colleges.
To get a better idea of what we're about, check out our EPK here:
We're looking for young drummers (18-30) who know how to bring the BIG SHOW! Guys and Girls who value teamwork, preparedness, and can push themselves to the limit of their creative ability for every performance.
If you or someone you know would like to participate in the audition process, please shoot us an email and tell us a little about yourself. We'd love to see headshots, performance resumes, and links to YouTube videos of you playing live. 
All new drummers will be required to complete a short video audition."
Do it! If I could play, you know I would be trying out for this.....Maybe they need a professional "snap-chatter". 
Congrats to Matt Beleskey and the Boston Bruins! My dudes made the NHL playoffs and will hopefully bring the Stanley Cup back home to Boston! If they win, and Matt brings the cup to the SJC office, I wouldn't be mad about it. 
Did you guys see this weeks vlog update? If not check it! 
If you live in the Worcester, MA area, SJC artist Tim Hetu will be holding a drum clinic at E.L. Music in Worcester, on April 28th at 7pm! 
Sorry the font of this blog changed halfway through, I legit have no idea what happened or how to fix it. Word. 
That's whats up! Cheers!
