Music Video, Radio Interview, Reviews and More!!!!

Last week we wrapped shooting the music video for our new tune “Rise the Falling Sun”, the single and video will be released in early spring in partnership with Cobalt Connects, a Hamilton based arts organization that gave us a $1000 grant to work on the video. All video shooting & editing will be handled by our pal James Maunder at http://www.thestreetfolk.com

We also did an interview with the Topless Burrito Bar on http://www.party934.com / 94.9FM out of Hudson Valley, New York. You can stream/download the podcast here http://www.toplessburritobar.com/2013/02/02/billy-blockers-envy-2-2-13/

We will have some behind the scenes photo and video going up on the site soon, but for now you can check out a bunch of photos on our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/thesecondhandband.

Guitar on Fire, Music Video and New Music

Greetings from Second Hand Band Land

We had a smokin’ weekend playing at Homegrown Hamilton with our blues brothers Beard. We played some new songs, and Ed walked outside of bar with his 50 ft guitar cord and set his guitar on fire and then played a solo, all in all a pretty heavy night.

We also spent a few nights last week shooting our music video for our new tune “Rise the Falling Sun”, our friends from Cobalt Connects who supplied us with the grant to make the video were also on hand helping out. We shoot at the Baltimore House and Porcelain Records, both in Hamilton and we will be posting some behind the scenes photo/video soon.

Were also done recording “Rise the Falling Sun” and are working on a bunch of new tunes still for the full length due out later this year.

Check us out on facebook for more info/updates/ect www.facebook.com/thesecondhandband

Recording a single, shooting a new music video

We’re almost done recording our new song “Rise the Falling Sun”, going in tonight to track Ed’s solo and then were recording vocals on Saturday. Were also starting to shoot the music video over the weekend and finishing shooting hopefully next week. This weekend will we start the shooting at the Baltimore House, and next week at Porcelain Records. We hope to post some “behind the scenes” photos along the way so stay tuned.

Music Video Grant & Full Length on the way!!

Hey Everybody!

We got some awesome news yesterday that we are one of the 4 reciepeients of the Cobalt Connects Music Video Grant for $1000, we partnered with our friend and videographer James Maunder in our application, and it will feature a song of the Telephone EP.

We also had a meeting last week with some very cool people who we are going to be working on a full length with. We have been at the jamspace every other day working on new material, we have about 18 songs in various stages of completion, that we will be adding to, and paring down by the time it comes to put them down on tape. We will have more news on this in the next couple weeks so stay tuned.

There is going to be a video blog coming your way sooner than later too!

November and the things it brings – News!

Hey Everybody

November was a fun month for us, the Telephone video has been getting a great response, and was picked up by Alan Cross on his blog.

We played the Baltimore House for the first time with some other awesome blues acts, and were at the Casbah for a Hamilton Music Awards show, we also attended the HMA reception which was an awesome time (free steamwhistle). Congrats to all this yrs winners!

We’ve got a few things cooking for December and the new year. A cover we recorded of a Beatles tune will be going up soon. Were also planning another video with our pal James Maunder. There will be a Toronto show coming in December as well, and we’ve got a bunch of new tunes ready as well, who knows, maybe another EP sooner than later??
