Hiatus = Evolution

So. We've been talking, and the Rick Murnane Band you have known recently is no more. We will be introducing a different take on the trio show in 2017, with a new name that doesn't have so much me in it, and more of an us feel. We're reworking the repertoire, concentrating on the intersection of blues, jazz, and pop that influenced our mutual favorites back when we first began performing together. Which means the set list will have more of a swing in its step than a rock swagger. We'll also be taking a new approach to booking and venues. The trio is basically going to have a life that is separate from my two solo albums and the Last Fridays project. Call it getting back into our comfort zone if you like, but at this point in the game, feeling at home feels like a good place to be.
