Hi Presto fans,
Greetings from USA’s Pacific Northwest, where we’re FINALLY getting some sun- maybe Mother Nature is trying to compensate for not giving us a summer this year. Nice try mom, but too little too late.
I wanted to take a minute today and apologize to anyone who has recently purchased an Invisible Places CD on this site for the extended delay. The CDs we expected a month ago from our distributor in Germany are still not here. We don’t know if there are customs issues or what, but we’re trying hard to find out what happened and get that shipment delivered. Thank you all so much for your patience!
On a brighter note, some truly outstanding drummers have responded to our search, and we expect to be making that choice in the next couple of weeks. It will be nice to have a full lineup again!
Thanks everyone! And don’t forget to visit us on Facebook!
I feel I should address something. In the issue of “Classic Rock Presents Prog” they so kindly gave Presto three pages!! In this article I was talking about my plans to move to the UK and setting up “camp” Presto. That ended up not happening, and here’s why.
I got my house shut down and made arrangements to start making the move, and headed across the pond. After being there for about three days it became painfully obvious that there was NO WAY that I was going to be able to afford to relocate there. Due to the fact the the U.S. dollar is next to worthless at this time, my money was only going half as far as I needed it to. I ended up staying for the length of time my room was booked, drank a lot of great beer, and then came back stateside. I will just have to get Presto “launched” from here. So there you have it, just in case anybody was wondering what was up with us moving to the UK.
It’s something I would still very much love to do one day. I really dig the UK and the music scene for prog is very healthy there at the moment. But until things change with the global economy, we will have to settle for playing there as soon as we can, and as often as we can. Hell, I’d settle for just being able to find a drummer and playing a show anywhere!
I’ll rant about that later.
Thanks for reading!
