Brian & Amy Scheid, fans of both Master Thieves and Dark Hollow, asked Chuck if he would do a solo acoustic show for their annual summer ending party. Not feeling too comfortable with the solo thing, Chuck asked Mike Vincitore of Dark Hollow if he would be interested in joining him for the gig. Mike obliged and the two of them started working on acoustic material which included solo originals from both musicians as well as covers from Grateful Dead, Van Morrison, Rolling Stones, Warren Zevon, and Bob Dylan. The party was a big a success and the two musicians are now currently booking more acoustic gigs.
Thanks Brian and Amy for your hospitality and great party!
Golden hosts the Master Thieves at Fort Squaterdale Recording Studio in Norwich, NY. Mark, Denise, Eric, and Chuck made the 1 1/2 hour trek out to Norwich to record a new demo CD.
The 2 day recording session was a great opportunity for the Thieves to spend some quality time together and a blast jamming old tunes and some future new originals. The new demo CD should be ready for distribution by mid-March.
I would like to introduce the following new members of the band.
Eric Tozer on the drums, joined the band in December 2008. With only 4 practice sessions under his belt, he managed to rip up the beats for 3 1/2 hours at back-to-back shows (Jake's Grub & Grog and Coleman's). Eric brings a ton of experience to the band with past projects in Happiness Hotel and Plainman Brown. We quickly found out that Eric is not just a drummer, but a percussionist. Eric layed down some sweet tracks with the djembe on a new studio version of No Slowing Down during our recent session at Fort Squaterdale Recording Studio.
Brian Golden on guitar, joined the Thieves in January 2009. Golden was introduced to the band by Eric Tozer. Eric has been friends and fellow band member with Golden for about 15 years playing in Happiness Hotel and Plainman Brown together. He brings a lot of versatility to the Thieves specializing in blues. Golden has especially gel'd with guitarist Chuck Dorgan as they both share the pursuit for that perfect overdriven tone. Golden also plays guitar with the Bad Weather Blues Band out of Binghamton, NY.
Brian Vischi, sound engineer, assists in perfecting the Thieves live sound. Vischi immediately made a huge impact during his first gig at Coleman's show on January 31.
The Master Thieves are proud to announce that once again, the crowed ROCKED at George O'Deas last Saturday night!! Would like to thank Joanne Perry for helping us out in the absence of our ACE Denise Shuart. Denise had a prior commitment and Joanne agreed to fill in for her until she got there. Joanne did a really
