    I'll do it, and I'll do it in Jasonspeak.

    Jasonic I think that you are overexposing your cover band by having Zak Stevens sing two songs for you guys.


    Don't you understand that the fans will see through this deception and come to the reality that your band is not an adequate Savatage cover band?

    The fans know man.

    They know quality when they see it and no amount of overexposure will change that.

    Sorry, in a few years I think your cover band won't amount to anything because well, the fans know. They just do.

    Oh, and Blackguard.

    My scratching post is so clever. :D

    Jason - may or may not be there. It depends on a number of factors for me.

    I did?
    Obviously I have been in communication with Zak in coordinating all of this.
    Just stating a fact that he told me which would have been of interest to anyone who would go see Circle II Circle.

    Can I assume there is no national support for these CIIC shows?

    I don't really know. As with me, it depends on a lot of factors. We may be going into a very tough financial crunch very soon.

    I do not believe so.
    Unfortunately, as in the past, this CIIC tour isn't really being promoted all that well. The band has announced it through FB, which is the only place I have yet to even see it be mentioned.

    So is there some reason CIIC has been playing so many shows in the Chicago area lately? Is one of them living up here now or something?

    On New Year's Eve, one of the local stations was showing snippets of live performances from clubs in the area; one of the acts was Gina Glocksen (who was on American Idol a few years ago and is from Naperville), and I could have sworn that Mitch was playing bass in her band.

    Afraid there is a logistics issue with me. Illinois is a little far away from Alabama. Good luck with the show though.

    Jason, if I lived near you I'd support you and your band all the way! I'm glad you've finally come around to appreciating my boys! :)

    there may be a 67% chance of Neil coming, but I have a 43% feeling he wont.

    I live in Jersey. Love Zak Stevens. Would hit a 50 mile radius for him. Other than that, will wait.

    If I lived back in Illinois again I'd likely go, but congrats on it man! Sounds like it will be a blast!

    Brian, you are indeed partially responsible for me being in this band.....
    If you recall, I rebought the GHOST IN THE RUINS comp following a Savatage related thread early last year. I then rebought some others, like Gutter Ballet, Sirens, Dungeons are Calling, and HOTMK.

    Since joining the band, I have become more up on the Zak stuff.

    Currently we do not have a keyboardist, so we primarily do early stuff, with the execption of a couple tunes from later eras that don't have keys.

    I will blow him kisses from the stage......

    Though 67% is still better odds than you coming to support a friend, right? :lol:
