The Rats would like to thank Chris Brinn and Maine Celtic Celebration for all the support over the past 3 years, Matt Murphy, Denis Lawrence, and WERU for plugging us all week, and you, our fans, for giving us the best CD release event we could have hoped for!
Things got off to a hairy start on Saturday night with epic and periodic downpours. We camped out under the tent and hoped for the best. Lo and behold the rain stopped when we got on stage and we played a solid set and sold a bunch of CDs for our opening day!
The real gem, however, was Sunday afternoon’s performance down in the Waterfront Tent. We were blessed with great weather and a great crowd of old and new friends. We hit the stage and played our faces off (but didn’t break the stage…) and had a blast! Thank you to everyone who came and spoke with us then and in the days afterward, we couldn’t do it without your support. All said and done, we sold 110 CDs in 2 days and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you for helping our CD release kick off with a fury! For those of you who were unable to to make to Belfast, you can pick up our album at Bull Moose Stores or online at CDBaby/iTunes.
Next up is our final performance for the summer: 8/5 at 7pm we will perform at Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor as part of Schoodic Arts for All. This is a gorgeous concert hall, so come on down and catch us there!
Once again, we can’t thank you all enough for all the support. The next thing we would ask of you is that you share our music with everyone you know! We want to put together a tour for next summer and you need to tell us where we should be! Shoot us a message on Facebook/Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell us who to talk to, where to send a disc, whatever you can send us will be helpful!
See you on the road!
Colin, Pat, Drew, Josh
