You know, we had a good run, and we’re proud of what we did here. However, it’s time to officially pack Black Water away for a little while and focus on new things.
Don’t despair! We’re not giving up on music at all. On the contrary, we’re all very busy:
First of all, Lloyd, Gary, and I are making something happen and should have an announcement soon.
Gerry is one half of the traveling acoustic duo The Knowing Glances, who will be touring America this winter in a hybrid car, and then building some houses in North Carolina next year.
Lloyd is drumming for local proprietors of funk and soul the Frozen Gentlemen, who have a show at Tierney’s in Montclair this Friday the 5th, and he’s also playing with the mysterious Operation SMOP.
Lloyd and myself are the hirsute half of geek punks Zac Clark & the Griswolds, who have a show at Lamp Post in Jersey City next Saturday the 13th.
I’m in a Squeeze cover band that’s called Cool for Bats, who will be playing the annual Ghost of Uncle Joe’s after-party at Lamp Post on October 27. This will basically be my birthday party since I turn 31 at midnight. Or into a pumpkin? I can’t remember.
Gary has a new baby so he isn’t sleeping much, but he assures me that as tiring as it is being a new dad, it is twice as awesome.
Thanks to everyone who supported us, booked us, and listened to us. See you around the bend.
