Taken It To The Streets
“My husband and I went to the Guitar Center show in Cleveland — LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!!! It was awesome!!! Loved the intimate setting, acoustic performance and listening to to their stories. Great sense of humor! They are so down to earth.”
The music shop at one time was the heartbeat of the local rock musician’s community. Remember the classic scene in ‘Wayne’s World’ when the shop assistant said, “No Stairway to Heaven!” as Wayne salivated over the white Fender Stratocaster. ‘Smoke on the Water’ and ‘Stairway to Heaven’ used to ring out regularly on a Saturday afternoon as the local musicians gathered to check out the latest guitars and amps to add to their ever-growing wish list.
In a time when certain parts of the music industry are trying to claim that ‘Rock is Dead’, we are leading a charge that’s taking us to the road not only in clubs and concert halls but straight to the very heart of rock music lovers and musicians communities, in places like music shops and local venues.
What the supporters are saying about DaisyLand
“I totally loved the acoustic shows!
Seeing their raw talents displayed in an up close and personal setting has been fantastic! The fans really enjoyed the music and some Q&A’s as well.”
“I went to the one in Joliet. It was beyond awesome! Celebrating Deen’s birthday hearing the songs unplugged all of it. Please keep doing these.”
“We went to two shows. Both were off the charts great!! These guys are sooo nice! Totally Rockin it!”
Carol & Randy Morton
“I think these events drive home the point that The Dead Daisies are a “fan’s band” and certainly help in elevating the band Brand…keep them going whenever possible!”
“It was truly a Daisey fan’s dream! I hope they make this a pre-show tradition. The whole experience was perfect!”
One supporter at a time
We are not just old school in our approach to Rock but also in the way we get our music to a new audience. The Daisies took it to the streets through a series of acoustic concerts called ‘DaisyLand’. We performed in music stores and venues, and got up close and personal and added one supporter at a time. The local Guitar Centers throughout America opened their arms to help us bring back the close connection to supporters the way it used to be. The era when bands would regularly meet their supporters at music events and give their time to the people that bought their records and concert tickets, unlike the hundreds of dollars some bands charge their supporters for a meet and greet. This hard work has paid dividends, and for those that become lovers and followers of The Daisies, the loyalty they invest in the band is second to none. As we made our way across America, you could be sure that we were ‘Bringing Rock Back’.
