Simon Says Booking March Newsletter

Welcome to nearly spring everyone! We are so thankful to have made it through this relatively mild winter, and our heads are filled with thoughts of festival and concert series season! We’ve been booking a ton of events and have a full roster of amazing artists ready for you!

Thunder and Rain

Thunder and Rain will be all over this great land this year with trips planned to MN/WI and Midwest end of June early July, to the central Midwest (KS, etc.) end of August, and to the northeast end of September heading to IBMAs and the Carolinas in early October. They will also be playing at Floydfest for the first time this year!

The Englishtown Project‘s triple tribute (Marshall Tucket Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Dead) is perfect for most events! Veterans of the scene with 200 years of touring experience – they are ready to come your way.

Max Creek are getting ready to celebrate 49 years together, holy cow! And they have just released a new acoustic album – their second album release in as many years. There is still a little room left in summer for outdoor events, and Fall is starting to confirm now.

Muddy Ruckus

We are so happy to report that Muddy Ruckus are spending a nice March in TX and this spring will see a medical break with a miraculous development for them. We should return to booking them for summer and fall and our most optimistic hopes and thoughts are with them.

The Big Takeover – we’re watching a meteoric rise for this amazing band from the Hudson Valley of New York. Elements of ska, reggae, Motown, soul all combine in a fantastic sound. Perfect for festivals and concert series there is plenty of room to have them visit your audience this season.

Swift Technique has a new album out and a renewed vigor! Philadelphia legend Lady Alma can be added to their lineup for select shows.

The Insiders

The Insiders – Tom Petty tribute band are starting to make their ascension and will soon be America’s #1 tribute to Tom Petty. We have them in the east in August for festivals and concert series and we’re seeking AUG 4-6, 9-11 while they are in Delaware and New York for events. Year round potential for this band abounds.

Erin Harpe continues to bring her Delta Blues to audiences everywhere. We have an affordable 2 piece version called the Country Blues Duo, up to the normal 3 or 4 piece Delta Swingers. Plenty of dates are available. Their funky alter ego Lovewhip is also available for northeast dates.

Moses Guest are back!! Their new single was released on HGMN records and we are seeking Texas options for July 1/2, Oklahoma City or Arkansas options for July 3 and they are playing Spacebury on July 4.

Duppy Conquerors

New England’s favorite Bob Marley tribute band are Duppy Conquerors! Their show is ever evolving and audiences are responding. Who doesn’t love Bob?

Colorado’s Deadphish Orchestra have limited availability, mostly in Colorado.

New England’s Deadbeat and their JGB alter ego Tore Up have spring and summer options and have an increasingly responsive fan base of travelers.
