Well, we’ve made it to Las Vegas by golly! It has been quite the trip so far and it’s not even half over. The Crooks have made it through our California dates and are pushing East through Nevada, Arizona, and eventually Texas by next week. One advantage of being a seven-piece band is the reach we have through our family members across the Nation. We definitely could not be doing what we do without the support of our beloved family members.
The Crooks owe a massive thank you to Chris’ Uncle Lincoln for opening his beautiful Inglewood apartment to us. Screw Geico, we just saved hundreds of dollars on our band account by switching to Uncle Lincoln’s apartment! We also cannot forget the hospitality and love from Aunt Donna! She provided the band with full bellies throughout the duration of our stay in L.A.
Crooked Quote: “Well, when we first got to L.A. we had dinner in Compton. Since then, we’ve pretty much just been hangin’ out in Inglewood.” –Aaron Myers
Last night, we played in Las Vegas at The Freakin’ Frog. The show went great and we made some new friends. Included in the audience was our long time friend and fellow musician, Josh Stuart. And of course we can’t forget about Chris’ parents, Wally and Carol who were cheering us on all night. They also treated us to an incredible buffet/champagne brunch this morning. We love you both!
