The tour bus keeps on rollin! Get ready, all of you in the Southern USA, we're coming for you...
Right now we are mid-ship as the bus blazes through the southern United States on the way from Arkansas to tonight's gig in Shreveport, LA at the Riverside Warehouse.
What better way to start off your weekend, then with a fresh dosage of a TON of new TREMONTI content live from the road!
First of all, we must begin with the tour to end all tours; the Willy Wonka of the guitar world: Paul Reed Smith. Paul was kind enough to open his doors to his plant in Stevensville, MD and give the band and crew a first rate tour of how his impeccible guitars are created! You are going to need to brace yourself for all the awesome-ness that you are about to witnes in this new video. And once we visit the paint booth, trust me, you are going to need sunglasses.
Then FRET12 is about to unleash a NEW video series on you!! We all know how much you guys have enjoyed the massive meet & greets we have been throwing at all the concerts, so we are taking it one step further with a spotlight for each member of the Tremonti Project. Some of you are very "in the know", however I promise there will probably be some excellent new information that you didn't know before watching these videos. Eric and Garrett even tell their stories with some more information around their old major label band: Submersed, and how they got involved with Mark Tremonti. Click the links below to watch the Artist Spotlights for the band members that keep the Tremonti Project riffing and chugging along.
MEET THE BAND:
and we cannot forget the man who allows your faces to be melted each and every night...
Jay Taylor!? Who?! You may have seen this mysterious man lurking in the shadows, crawling around in a sea of XLR cables and patches, or hoisting equipment around behind an array of 64 faders; but without Jay, the concert would not sound as it sounds.
Allow FRET12 to introduce you to the FOH Engineer for TREMONTI, where you can get to know what life is like on the road for a soundman doing a club tour of North America. Learn how he innovates and adapts every night here:
So feast your eyes on these new videos and let us know what you think! Remember, if you are in Louisiana tonight, near Shreveport, you may hear the ground shaking as Tremonti destroys the stage at the Riverside Warehouse. If you are at the show make sure to come say what's up to the Fret12 crew and of course, the Tremonti Project. We'll all be there, so make sure to make a night out of it!
Until next time....
