So we're about to change things up a little in the world of Grand Lake.
A large factor in the formation of our band was our amazing drummer, Mr. Ryan Christopher Parks, AKA B. Hamiliton. Ryan is an excellent musician, and like many excellent musicians, has a lot of projects going on. Its been decided that for everybody's long-term happiness, Ryan will be leaving Grand Lake this month. In fact, Ryan's last show (stop crying you babies) will be this upcoming Tuesday evening at the Knockout.
Come see Ryan's last show with Grand Lake - its the last time you'll ever get to see him scream at me in the middle of Sandusky Sunset (at least from behind the kit).
Ryan Parks - RIP bro. Grand Lake will miss you.
Replacing Mr. Parks on the drums will be difficult, however, our good friend Mr. John William Pomeroy will most certainly be up to the task. Here is a picture of him:
Isn't he lovely in his Amoeba Music shirt? We think so. John is an amazing musician who also fronts his own band called the Cerfs. Jameson and I have been Cerfs fans for years. Check out their MySpace here.
John's first show with Grand Lake will be at the Starry Plough in Berkeley on June 5th, with our very good friends Sister Grizzy. Hope to see you at that one too.
Our cassette is officially dropping on June 23rd, although I should expect you'll see it at our shows a bit before then.
Onwards and upwards!
