Crazy Kang!

It’s a crazy time… You would think that it would be slow this time of the year for us. NOT!!! Even though we are only playing three or four shows a week, we are in the studio right now recording our 2nd King Tyrone album after a 5 year sabbatical from the debut release.  This project will prove to be my most innovative a creative thus far.  I pray it’s not going to be too over the top and will be widely accepted, otherwise I may just eat too much Skinny Cow icecream while watching afternoon talk shows and spending all my doe on BOGO specials at the Rack Room.  Don’t let me become that person, lie too me if you must!  We are also planning a few more escapades with Umbrella Events.  After a great New Year Party, Joey and I are hosting our inaugural “Frozen Beach Ball” on January 26th near Wallace at the Mad Boar.  Get tickets in advance for only 10 bucks.  Check out the details at

While your there, look into our musical adventure to Key West in October.  You NEED to sign up as soon as you can (today if possible). The first one hundred of only 200 people will be getting some extras.  Call Nancy NOW for details and it only takes $250 to reserve your spot: (770)881-7300

Diet Sun-Drop and “All You Can Eat” Chinese Buffets

Well, they are steadily working on our first DVD recorded last month at Papa Mojo’s Roadhouse in Durham, NC… Meanwhile, we are gearing up for recording our first “Music Video” for our debut national release from Sony/Red Music.  That’s right, my fat-ass is gonna jump around like a blue-crab in a steam-pot for eternal posterity.  So, I planned on losing weight months ago, knowing all this was coming.  Well, I love Diet Sun-drop. That’s a plus right? Hell no, if you drink a Sam’s Wholesale pallet of ’em daily it’s not!  I would fall in love with the “ONLY” diet soda that is “NOT” calorie free.  I wanted to get back into my 32 waist jeans, so I decided on a brisk walk this morning around the Lake Norman Area.  I made it a block and ran into smack dab into a local Chinese buffet.  Cantonese Chicken anyone? Count me in!  Therefore, I will be wearing my old 501 button-fly Levi’s tonight at Amos’.  “Suck it in Quick! OK, ACTION!”

 I wanna send a shout out to WDNB, Thunder 102, in New York for being the first to start playing “Down South” above the Mason-Dixon line.  I guess they do have “Beach Boys” fans in Kansas.  Somebody in Chicago loves to rock out to “Boston” and somebody in Boston loves to groove on “Chicago”.  Ain’t Kid Rock from Michigan? ” He’s singing’Sweet Home Alabama’.”  Nontheless, we got to give props to my home state boys up in Nags Head and Kitty Hawk.  Thank you WRFS, Dixie 105.7.  Let’s do this thang y’all…It’s on!
