Smith’s Olde Bar Recap

We had a fantastic time at Smith’s Olde Bar last night– so fantastic that we already booked another show there in June– be on the lookout for that!

We also played a brand new song called “I Should Have Known” that we literally finished/ polished up the night before. The general consensus for it was two thumbs up (đź‘Ťđź‘Ť)!

We really appreciate everyone who came out and made our first time at Smith’s Olde Bar special. You da real MVPs.

We’ll be back at Smith’s this Friday for our encore performance in this year’s 500 Songs For Kids at 10:30pm. It’s a great event for a great cause– see you there!

5 chances to see us in the next 2 weeks!

Yeah! You read that right. We’re playing FIVE TIMES next 2 weeks, so surely you can find it in your busy schedule to come out and see us at least once.

Monday, April 24th at Smith’s Olde Bar: This is our first show at Smith’s, and we want to make it great! We know Monday’s aren’t the best for shows, but we’re hitting the stage at 8:30pm– plenty of time to get there after rush hour, and plenty of time to get to sleep at your normal bedtime. You need tickets, so buy ahead online (it’s cheaper than buying at the door).

Friday, April 28th, 500 Songs For Kids at Smith’s Olde Bar: We’re playing again for 500 Songs For Kids this year! This time we’re playing one of our usual covers, “Valerie” by Amy Winehouse, but our guitarist Jeff will be playing his trumpet, instead; it’s going to be awesome. We’ll update this post when we know what time’s we’re playing.

Saturday, April 29th, BBQ & Brews Canton: We’re opening another BBQ & Brews Festival, this time at the O.G. location in Canton. Every one of these events that we’ve been to has been a BLAST, so it’s definitely worth the quick drive up 575. We’ll be playing at the stage from 12pm – 1:30pm.

Friday, May 5th, Two Birds Taphouse: That’s right we’re playing Cinco de Mayo at Two Birds! Due to a few of our band members traveling during May, this will be the last time we’ll be playing at Two Birds until June 10th, so if you love hanging out and watching us there, don’t miss it!

Saturday, May 6th, Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza & Grill: Our last show until June will be in Woodstock. Come out and enjoy some delicious food and fun music on the beautiful patio at Fire Stone in Downtown Woodstock!

Welcome to our site…

…and to our first blog post!

Proper photos, an EP release, a website…we’ve really been getting on our game in 2017 #swag

So here’s more about what we’ve been up to lately:

Tiny Fractions EP – Our 4-song EP features three original songs and one of our mash-ups (‘Timber’ by Pitbull/Ke$ha with ‘2 Heads’ by Coleman Hell). All songs were recorded, mixed and mastered by Jeremy Nichols at CoCoa Break Studios in Woodstock, GA. We’re super excited to share these with the world, so take a listen and give us a follow on Spotify!

Photo Shoot – We finally got some professional-quality photos…we figured with the EP release it was time! Our good friend Emily Holst is a fantastic photographer and did a wonderful job with our awkward selves. Photos were taken at various locations around the Marietta Square, mainly at our favorite two bars Johnnie MacCrackens and Two Birds Taphouse.

500 Songs For Kids – We love to perform in the 500 Songs For Kids event benefitting the Songs For Kids Foundation every year. Although this is the first year for The Hearsay, it was Ashton’s 6th year and Travis’ 3rd. It’s an amazing organization with the mission to enrich the lives of children suffering from illness and hardship. We performed on April 1st with the song “Believe” by Cher (watch the video here)! And BONUS, they asked us to do an encore performance on April 28th– we’ll be performing one of our usual covers Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie” at Smith’s Olde Bar.

BBQ & Brews Festivals – We got our start as a band a little over a year ago when we were asked to play at the first BBQ & Brews Festival in Canton, GA. Created by a friend of Ashton’s, the BBQ & Brews team has been very good to us– we played at the one in Ellijay in September, and just played the one in Cartersville this past weekend on April 1st. We’ll be at this year’s Canton festival on April 29th!

That’s enough for now, I think 🙂
