We welcome back Michael Charles and the band as they return to the studio after completing the first “journey” of the Road Dawg Tour 2012. And what a ride it was! Four thousand two hundred and seventy-one miles across the USA and Canada. Mother Nature was especially good to the guys as they were treated to some of the mildest weather in history for all states and both countries.
Starting out with a great Mental Health fund raiser in Kansas City, MC then headed straight up to Jake’s tavern, which has basically become MC’s “home” in Wyoming. Always a fantastic turnout there. A quick stop in Great Falls Montana to do television and radio and a performance at Bert and Ernie’s before making their way up to Canada where MC revisited three venues from previous tours; The Blues Can, Blues On Whyte, and Buds on Broadway. These paramount venues in Canada set the stage for eleven shows in thirteen days. Promoted with radio and television and the ever amazing energy packed spectacular shows of Michael Charles, all three venues were extremely successful. Coming back down to the states, Michael performed Wiley’s Tavern in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and finished up in Omaha Nebraska to do a tremendous show for the Operation BBQ for our troops. Glad to be back the guys will have a chance to refuel before they start their southern trek to Florida at the end of March. Great job everyone!! Glad you are all safe! A big thanks to all those who came out to the shows and all those who purchased Michael Charles music! Good on ya mate!
In the studio there are the scurrying of files to prepare for the next single in the Under the Covers series. As I write this it is being mastered in Australia by the one and only, Greg Williams of Dex Audio. The picture will be selected and information will be sent to the graphic artist soon. We can’t wait to announce the next title to you!!
We have an addition to the admin staffing at Moonlight Label. Niel Henriksen of Kansas City is now stepping up to the role of Michael Charles’ manager. We welcome you, Niel, and look forward to working with you.
