Cancelled Shows? What Gives?

(toll on the PA turnpike. snap!)

Hey there friends.

So for a few different reasons (which I will list below) there have been 3 shows cancelled from this leg of the tour:
Tonight in Allentown PA, Tomorrow in Baltimore MD, and Wednesday in Knoxville TN. This isn’t because of any personal vendetta against the residents of these cities. Here’s how it unfolded.

I got the call on the way to Philly yesterday morning that the show in Allentown at Crocodile Rock was cancelled. The local support at the show had a death in the family which caused them to cancel which stinks (I am so sorry for their loss!) This was the only show until we get home that had payment attached to it. Tomorrow in Baltimore was tips based and Wednesday night in Knoxville was tip-based. Even still, if we had places to stay in these cities we probably would have still pressed on.

These last few weeks leading up to the cancellations have had a lot of mishaps and poor payment attached to them. So we figured we could do the show and roll the dice, or play it safe and head home to hopefully get some more planning in for this next tour and get everything figured out.

I thought I would just start sharing some of our needs with you guys and if you can help, we’d appreciate it… Thank you!:

About owenpye

Owen Pye began playing in 2005, with just a guitar and a plan: To share music with willing listeners. As cliche as that may seem, it’s exactly what he’s doing. Pye was getting a lot of exposure on myspace, with his boastful 20,000 fans and thorough independently booked tour schedule in his early years supporting his debut album “If That’s Cool With You.” To date, Owen Pye has shared the stage with some of the best up and coming artists including Deas Vail (Mono VS. Stereo) Dr. Manhattan (Vagrant) and New London Fire (Eyeball.) He has independently booked over 250 shows in the United States. In 2008 he teamed up with some friends to form a consistent full-band line-up known as “Owen Pye & The Sunday School Band.” With the help of producer and engineer Andrew Osenga (Caedmon’s Call, The Normals) they released their self-titled record to the masses in late 2009. During the summer of 2010, Pye began his solo project with Blackroom Records. When asked about the upcoming project, Owen Pye responded, “This is very, very exciting and I am SO pumped to work with these folks for the next year in support of the record.” To learn more about Owen Pye, pickup a CD, download an MP3 or come out to a show near you.

    That’s a toll in Pennsylvania? Jeez, what is that? A clam chowder tax? That’s ridiculous!

    It’s things like that make me proud to be born and raised in the good ol’ Midwest.
