I have teamed up with a couple killer musicians out here in NOLA, Kiley Michael (Fifth Switch) and Todd Bishop (The US Postals) to form a new project called "SAINT ROCH". A power trio of straight up party Roch n Roll with some punk and blues influences thrown in there. We are recording a couple tracks for radio this month and have already lined up a handful of shows. Go like the SAINT ROCH Facebook page to keep up with whats happening, as it's happening fast!
Shows booked in New Orleans so far.. Feb 16- SIBERIA (w/ Fifth Switch, and TBA) Feb 26- Howlin' Wolf Den (w/ Fifth Switch, Jesse Tripp and the Nightbreed) March 26- Twist of Lime (w/ Fifth Switch, Uoyab)
Yes it's true. Derek and Purple have begun preproduction for a few tracks for a new record we hope to release for y'all this summer some time. We will provide updates as they happen.. This is a fun project we are working on and can't wait to put it out! Cheers Derek
