CANCELLATION, ALBUM, AND MORE SHOW DATES!
December 13th, 2006, 1:46 AM
First off I want to apologize for the show cancellation this past Tuesday at Some Place Else in Muskegon, MI. They waited until the day prior to cancel it. I guess that this is the way some people work. Though I do feel bad about the show being canceled, I am not going to apologize for these people being complete assholes. This show may or may not be rescheduled. The idea is still up in the air.

The album is finished! Expect to see a CD release party real soon. Keep checking back with the show dates for that one. Also, keep checking back in on the merchandise page to get your copy of "Songs For The Hopeless." Thank you all so much for your support.

This Wednesday I will be playing at The Brick House in Grand Rapids, MI. The show starts at 9:00 PM and there is a $5.00 cover. The other acts on this bill are The Three Chord Statement, Mayfare, and Georgia Crawl. I hope to see my Grand Rapids friends out at this event!

This Saturday we will be playing at Racquet's which is located downtown Muskegon, MI. If you are in the area then come on out to the show!

We'll see you all real soon! Take care of each other in the mean time.

SHOW CANCELLATION AND OTHER NEWS
November 21st, 2006, 12:38 AM
It has been a while since a news update has been posted so I figured that it was about that time! I have to apologize to everyone but the Racquet's show for this Wednesday has been cancelled. Even though I won't be able to play that show some friends of mine in a band called Bitter Design will be playing. They're a great band and a good time. Stop in and check them out!

Wednesday, November 29th, I'll be performing at the Soho Grille located in the Omni Fitness Center on Norton in Muskegon, MI. Imagine that, a bar in a fitness center, ha! I will have a few guests with me that evening. Rebecca Christianson will be there to do some songs with me, and Andrea Naill from Grand Rapids will be opening up the show.

Sorry about the show cancellation, but I do hope to see everyone on the 29th at the Soho Grille.

As you know we have been in the studio and the recording process has been going great. Lance has been doing a phenomenal job for us. You'll have a really good sounding CD. We've decided that rather than making an EP, this will be the first full Anthony Emin CD. There will be a total of seven songs on this album. You'll have to wait until the disc is released to know what those songs are. If you go to the myspace page there is a video of us working on one of the songs live in the studio. Make sure that you check that out and let us know what you think.



The album will be out soon. In a few weeks we should have more information on a release date for you.

The next time you're at a show make sure you stop by our booth and check it out. As far as merchandise goes we just got buttons in and there are three different designs for those. Also, remember to sign our mailing list which is going to be up and running soon!

We are currently pre-selling CD's for $15.00. Yes, the CD will only be $10.00 when it is released, but by pre-ordering the disc, you'll get stickers that you'll only be able to get by doing this as well as supporting many great causes such as us going to the NAMM Show in California, along with other various and necessary trips. As soon as the disc is done, you'll be the first to get it. If you want to pre-order a CD you can either catch us at a show, or send a check along with your name, address, phone number, and email address to the following:

LINEUP COMPLETE
September 18th, 2006, 2:06 AM
Tryouts for the bass position are over. I would like to welcome Matt DiRito to the team. The line up is now Matt Dirito on bass and Arnie Guthrie on drums. These are both two phenomenal musicians and I can't wait for you to hear what these guys can do as well as the songs performed as a full band.

This Thursday we will be playing at The Blue Note in Muskegon, MI. The line up for this show will be Columbus Sharp, Lucas D, and then us. To end the night I will be doing an acoustic set by myself as well. There will be a $3.00 cover at the door and the show starts at 9:00 PM. The Blue Note is located on the corner of Henry and Broadway in Muskegon, MI.

Saturday I will be playing solo opening up for Dutch Henry at The Rosebud in Grand Haven, MI. This should be a really kick ass show. It's always a crazy combination when you put me with those Dutch Henry guys. Something about playing shows with these guys that just makes me feel so alive. This show will start at 9:00 PM. The Rosebud is located on Washington St. in Grand Haven, MI.

Look forward to seeing y'all at the shows.

ANOTHER SPONSOR AND MORE SHOW DATES
September 11th, 2006, 3:09 PM
I would like to welcome Birds North to the team as my latest sponsor. Mura's Bird's Music North is a music store located on Whitehall Rd. in Muskegon, MI. They are really great people there and if this happens to be in your area make sure that you stop into the store and check it out. They carry all your necessary supplies, instruments, and have lessons there as well.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Red Rooster on Saturday night to see us perform as we opened up the show for Dutch Henry. We had a really great time out there. Expect to see more Anthony Emin/Dutch Henry shows in the near future! This show was the first show that my band and I performed as a whole so hopefully you enjoyed this aspect and plan on coming out to see the boys and I more often.

There was another artist that I happened to perform with at The Red Rooster and this beautiful lady's name is Rebecca Christianson. I must say she has one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard! There will be a song on the first Anthony Emin record titled "Broken Sparrow" Written and sung by Rebecca. We'll be doing more duets together for sure and those will always be posted under tour dates so be sure to keep checking those out.

September 21st, we will be at The Blue Note in Muskegon, MI. along with Lucas D. Lucas and I will be splitting the night doing two sets each. Doors for this event open at 9:00 P.M. and there will be a cover charge. The Blue Note is located on the corner of Henry and Broadway in Muskegon, MI.

September 23rd, I will be playing at The Rosebud in Grand Haven, MI. Opening for Dutch Henry. Doors for this event are at 9:00 P.M. A time with AE and Dutch Henry is always a good time.

That is the news for now.
