Why We Love You

Much to my dismay, while eating Taco Bell after our Friday, February 15 CD Release Party at Starline, I realized I hadn’t thanked a few of our great friends that had helped make the show such a success. So here ‘tis.

LOVE and PROPS to these fabulous Fresno media members:

1. Mike Osegueda of the Fresno Bee for his great article entitled “Familiar Faces Return.”

2. Mikey and the Fresno cultcha aficionados at The Dorktown Podcast for featuring an interview with The Dalloways on their latest episode

3. KFSR 90.7 for hosting our bass player on a segment before the show and playing some of our new tunes.

4. Fresno Famous for their fab calendar

And THREE CHEERS to our fabulous Dalloways Crew:

1. Jessica Moncrief, bold and fearless photographer extraordinaire, who does whatever it takes to get the shot, Annie Liebowitz style! (The photo in this blog is by JM!) Watch for her shots to be featured in a special Dalloways photo album and on soon.

2. Becky (a.k.a. Seamonkey for the additional awesome photo work. We will be featuring her shots as well.

3. JT and Ashley for their video engineering skills. Congratulations on their wedding … the morning of our show!

4. Chris Brown and Orion for rockin' the merch and the newsletter. We've never seen such an ambitious duo. And they look great in our new T's as well!

5. Brian Gard for the audio engineering.

And MERCI MERCI MERCI to the honorary Dalloways of the night:

1. Paul Meadors (a.k.a. Art Farkas, author of the hilarious Letters to Ebay and former 1st chair trumpeter from my high school days) for his beautiful flugelhorn playing.

2. Rachel Roelke for her fabulous, soulful backing vocals.

And GRACIAS to the most fabulous venue in town!

1. Mike and The Starline for hosting this event.

2. The bartenders and wait staff for being so kind.

3. Ray for rockin’ the sound board.

And LOVE to the bands!

1. The fab folksy Aspen Hollow for getting the word out and bringing the peeps and playing their beautiful subtle pop.

2. The Sleepover Disaster who always bring the goods (Good luck to them at South by Southwest!)

And lastly and most importantly ...

Many thanks to all the folks who came out to see the bands and add to the great atmosphere of the night.

If you happened to miss the show, you can pick up our new EP in CD or MP3 format from CDBaby. We will also be listing the new “I Love You Regardless” T’s for sale in our online store. The T design was created by The Dalloways’ own resident artist/keyboarist Cortnie Cleary, and I’m not lying when I say they are the cutest band T-shirts ever.

We hope to see you at our next show!
