We have, in the previous week, taped two different promo appearances for the upcoming AFTAF shows.
My cousin and bandmate, Marky was on "The Voice" last night. Of course, a lot of you know that already. Anyway, I just want to say I'm so proud of him for giving it a shot and doing the best he could with what they gave him. I'm so often frustrated by the way show-biz works (or doesn't) on these kinds of shows, and this was SO excruciating to watch.
On October 15, a CSNY tribute CD will be released entitled "Music is Love," and it will contain a brand new Venice recording, a cover version of Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush."
Well, the boys are officially back in town. We've had two great Venice gigs since their return from the record-breaking "Wall" tour.....and now we're really excited to get back to work on writing songs for a new Venice album. More on that in upcoming newsletters.
I'm thrilled to announce the Second Annual Lennon Family Concert. Friday and Saturday, July 27 and 28, at the Santa Monica Bay Woman's Club (a.k.a. The Lennon Lounge).
I regret to inform you that due to an unexpected extension of Roger Waters' "The Wall" tour, Venice will be unable to perform on July 21 at Lake Arrowhead. The boys and I are extremely bummed about this. It's one of our favorite shows of the year, and it was to be our first gig celebrating their return home.

On Saturday, April 21, 2012, please join Venice & Friends at Santa Monica High School's Barnum Hall for our 9th Annual For The Arts Concert. Venice will be joined by Samohi's student musicians, and by special guests, including Glen Phillips from Toad the Wet Sprocket, and others TBA.
Venice will perform two shows at Witzend in Venice Beach next weekend, on January 6 and 7.
We've just returned from a short but great tour in Holland. Â We debuted three brand new Venice songs during the tour, and we were thrilled with the overwhelming response they received. Â You can catch some great videos and comments on our Facebook page.....check it out!
