Final Shows of 2022/ Rock and Roll Underwear!

Things have quieted down for me quite a bit since the vinyl release show at The Mansion back on Sept. 30th(which was incredible by the way. Thanks to all of you who attended and made it such a special night). Stepping back and doing some behind-the-scenes work for 2023. One really fun development however, has been the introduction of the "Tunesday" afternoon jam at the RCHA club. Since this weekly event began on October 4th, the joint has been jumping with music lovers and musicians alike(on average we've had a seven-piece band plus guests getting up to join in with the band or perform on their own). This has been an incredibly enjoyable new weekly ritual, rich with community spirit. I encourage those in the Kingston area to drop by any Tuesday afternoon from 4-7 PM. 193 Ontario St. up on the 3rd floor.

A Few More Shows in 2022!

There are a few more shows coming up in 2022. First up, on December 10th Dead Root Revival make our return to the Keystorm Pub in Brockville for the first time after a long covid hiatus. Music gets underway at 8 PM. It also marks the first time Tony Silvestri will be joining us at the Keystorm in a long while (first time under the DRR banner…last played there as Tony Silvestri Band).

And on that note, some exciting news! Tony has come on board as a full time member of Dead Root Revival, and will be performing at all of our shows from here on out. We look forward to many magical live performances to come (plus the recording of our debut studio album. Stay tuned for details!).

QRTheBand Concert at the Grand Theatre - Thursday, December 15th(6 PM)

Savage Family Band will be taking part in the concert, which is the culmination of a local music album compilation project we were involved in. Songs for the album were recorded at The Bathouse and will be released at a future date TBA.

Dead Root Revival Live in Concert at the RCHA

Tickets are still available for our show at the RCHA on Saturday, December 17th. $10 advance available at the club($15 at the door). Join us as we rock out one more time in 2022(and for the very first time at the RCHA club).

DRR "SAVAGE" underwear
One thing I never thought I would be doing when I became a musician: selling underwear. 

You asked for them, so here they are! A limited edition run of @deadrootrevival “SAVAGE” boxers printed at Ironclad Printing Company. M or L sizes. 1 pair for $30, 2 for $40. Kingston locals: Etransfer to with colour/size choice and we can arrange pick up/drop off.

Now DRR’s mannequin Bob can safely keep his shorts on!

Here's hoping you have a safe and happy holiday season and we will see you at the rock show!

Vinyl is in! Release Celebration September 30th!!!

21st Century Lo-Fi Vinyl is Here!

It has been a long wait, but the vinyl is now finally here, and it looks and sounds great! Zach's artwork really pops on the 12-inch sleeve!! Looks incredible. Sounds amazing as well. The format really brings out the retro vibe of 21st Century Lo-Fi.

Now we can get on with the business of celebrating! Mark down Friday, September 30th on your calendars, as there will be a Vinyl Release Party upstairs at The Mansion in Kingston, ON, featuring Savage Family Band, Weathered Siding, and Dead Root Revival! Tickets are $15 advance/$20 at the door (or $40 for a vinyl album and a ticket to the show). Get them here!

I hope you can join me to celebrate this artistic achievement with a night of music and fun!
