Yes, we scoundrels that toe tap, haven't updated a journal in a coons age. Let alone our web site, whoops. I guess you can say people are busy with thier lives, although, a lot of us really are not. Well, at least the guy who's writing this now hasn't been. But he'll wait for his band to come along so we can start doing work and stuff again.

I really don't know when the next show is, but I can assure you, we'll get some. October sounds like a month for shows, but thats obviously too far away. So we'll keep you posted ok journal nerds?

Love Richy and all of TTS

** SHOW ** [21 Jun 2005|09:05am]

This Saturday June 25th, we are playing the battle of the bands in Prospect Heights Illinois. Let me explain to you how we got this slot...

Prospect Heights has had 4 band nights earlier on this year. In those 4 band nights, 6 bands would perform each of those 4 nights for a chance to get a slot at the battle of the bands. Each night a winner or two was selected to go to the actual battle. The nights they had where like tryouts to go there. In 24 bands total, we where chosen as 1 out of 6 bands from each night to go and perform at the actual battle. We are happy to know that this oppourtunity came about. Each band that places gets a cash prize, and the top 3 bands get a chance to go to the state (national battle of the bands?) August 20th in Springfield Illinois to compete.

We are asking for you guys to help us out and come out to support all of the bands that are performing. Keep in mind, every band will be playing at there best and this is a time that you shouldn't miss. The bands that will be performing are...

Or So It Goes

Havoc

Domestic Play

Ben Car Ben

Real Lunch

and The Toe Tapping Scoundrels

We guarentee this event will be very very good. We are planning on getting the first slot to play, or the second slot to play that day. Our trumpet player has to be in and out by 2:00pm, thats why we are shooting for the earlier slot.

This show is a FREE!!!!! FREE FREE FREE!!!! EVENT!!!



The show also starts at 12:00pm NOON!

The location of the prospect heights battle of the bands is...

110 West Camp Mcdonald Road


Prospect Heights Illinois


Zip: 60010



This event will be held outside on a professional stage with professional sound and lighting!

Please come out and help support the bands!

Hello TTS community members, how is everyone doing in here? We have not posted in a long time. We are very sorry about that.

Show announcement...

We are playing Saturday May 14th in Naperville Illinois at the Wheatland Salem Church. With Forgiven Forgotten, Jazz Combo, and a few other indie/hardcore bands. If you'd like to come out and watch, that would be wonderful. This event is a Benefit concert for a family at the church. We would like to have as many people come out and support the family we are having a privillage to play for.

Other news...

Show coming up June 10th at the Garay Morava Rec. Center. More info to follow. This show is very important because it determines if we go to the battle of the bands. It's more of a try out, but having as many fans and a baises as possible there, that would show the judges a thing or two about our performance. There is only to my knowledge, 1 other ska band trying out. Our friends optional rally fun pack.

June 17th is another show we are down to play at a church in chicago. All ska and punk rock show, should be a blast. I hear a bigger band is playing, but those details are in the mix.

Summer tour is still running strong in July. One specific show we are playing is with Mustard Plug in indiana I persume? The show is confirmed and the venue is still being set out. Don't get too excited yet for it though, although playing with the ska-punk band that has led the scene for over 12 years, it will be a privillage to play with them. Hopefully that show will work out.

Take care guys, more to follow. Please visit...

We are excited to head into the studio again to be recording. We are having a 2005 3 song demo out. Our 5 song cd has sold quite well actually (2004 release) and we are hoping to record throughout April.

We are also excited to announce we are touring the midwest this summer with bands like Manic Sewing Circle (chicago) and the Skallyways (indiana). Basically this tour will be out every weekend during the summertime. We'd love it if people can come out on the road with us. We have a tour van in head and everything.

We are ordering new merch this summer to take with us on the road, so that the out of state kiddies can enjoy some TTS things.

We've got an endless supply of cheetos and yoo hoo.


C'mon, you know you want some of that!

*** SHOW(S) ANNOUNCMENTS!!! *** [12 Feb 2005|12:19am]

[ mood | satisfied ]

Hey everyone in the community! Insane news, we have tons of shows coming up. More than your grandfather can stand actually, and the bands are outrageous. Take a look below at the flyers, and you'll see what I mean.






Both of those shows are absolutely huge, our april 1st show doesn't have a flyer made for it yet, but I can tell you I Voted For Kodos and A Girl Named Craig are on the spot for the show too. Along with ex-indecisives members in thier new band called "Tusker". Along for the ride will be Dr. Ed And The Flu Shots, and our good friends Vampire Dolphin Repellant.

So please guys, if you can make it out to these shows, please do. Bring some friends along for the ride as well, it would be sweet of you :).

Take care guys!

Love TTS
