LAS VEGAS, NV – April 17, 2016
Hi everybody – hope you had a great Easter!
The last month really couldn’t have been more hectic, busy or exciting for us. We spent January and February working out ideas for our new Jukebox show at The Venetian, but come March it was time to dive in head-first and start rehearsing. Since then we just haven’t stopped!
All the hard work has really paid off though – two weeks into the run and the new show is feeling amazing so far. It’s great to be able to get back to our first love of performing on stage regularly again.
We would love for you to come and see the show for yourself! Make sure you use the codeword ‘SOC25’ at the checkout for 25% off selected tickets.
With all the intense planning going on there hasn’t been a lot of family time lately, but we did manage to put the work aside on Easter Sunday to have a picnic. All our families got together in a park on a perfect Spring day here in Vegas (the weather doesn’t get any better than in late March/early April here) and it was great to relax together and recharge the batteries while our kids ran around hyped up on chocolate and hunting for eggs.
Now with all the craziness of the last few weeks, my YouTube pick for this month has to be a Bruno Mars song that is totally appropriate. It’s a few years old but I totally understand where he’s coming from!
Hope everybody is happy and loving life, and I look forward to seeing you all at an HN show one day soon.

LAS VEGAS, NV – September 30, 2015
It’s Phil here, to give you the latest on what’s been happening for us.
We’re back in Vegas now after our run of shows on the East Coast last month. It was a great tour with a lot of fun shows and great crowds – and it’s also always good to get the opportunity to see other parts of America with a lot of history and culture (I think I might have a bit of a crush on Philadelphia just quietly…).
We just finished recording a few new songs over the past couple of weeks. Once again we worked with Dave Pierce (who produced our Jukebox album) and Bob Rock – an amazing team to make music with. They really know their stuff! Can’t say too much about the material yet but we’re really excited.
We’re also starting to prepare for our Christmas show which kicks off at the Venetian on November 21 and goes through until December 22. It’s always fun to perform Christmas songs. They really seem to put a smile on most people’s faces – including our own.
Sometimes living here in Vegas means we do a few things a little out of the ordinary – for instance last weekend we all hit the streets of Vegas for a 5km charity fun run (well, one of us decided to run – the other 3 of us felt the option of a leisurely 1 mile walk was more in order). It was actually a great way to spend a morning – and I know my dogs really appreciated the exercise!
Okay – to my favourite YouTube video at the moment. I’m really enjoying Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ new track ‘Downtown’. It’s got a great old-school feel, and the video is so much fun to watch. Enjoy!
Hope you’re all enjoying life and looking forward to a great Christmas – it’s just around the corner…
