Hello fans and friends!
First off, the news. Working on booking and piecing together my band. I'll be jamming with several people and hopefully i'll be able to give more info when things get finalized. I'll be continuing to play solo shows, but the focus will be on creating and promoting the full band. I'm also working on new material, and so far from what I've posted on twitter and Facebook, people have been really into it. I'll be promoting my Album "Relationships with Monsters" for the foreseeable future, but i'm always thing about the future.
I booked a huge show in Akron on October 7th, and i couldn't be more excited!

It's at Annabell's Bar, i'm so excited to play that place! Check out my Tour dates: shows page for more details and other upcoming events!
Next up, Moniker Guitars! Moniker Guitars was founded in 2011 by two friends who share a maniacal obsession for playing and building electric guitars. Moniker was founded on the belief that there are other guitar players that want to own and play an instrument that is as unique as the music they make with it. Our goal is to share our passion for designing and customizing guitars by providing a website that makes designing your custom instrument easy. I worked With Kevin at Moniker about designing a guitar and getting set up with them, and then i saw a model they had for sale and i HAD to have it!
Moniker worked with and helped get me situated and i'll be proudly playing a 2013 Reedsdale Model guitar. Take a look:
Here are the specs:

I look forward to working with them in the future, and i plan on picking up a Tejas Model This winter, but until then, this will be my Primary show guitar! Be sure to see some pictures and videos when i get this awesome guitar in.
Lastly, I have started a Patreon account for those who want to help me with creating content, and supporting my ventures! As soon as i have it up and running i'll let you know, it is up as:
Again, thanks for the continued support! i'll have one more post this week i can't wait to share!
Until next time!
Love ya Babies!
Hey guys, time to feature some awesome new bands I've met or played with recently, but first some news!
There is talks and rumors i am forming a band, those are very true. Nothing is set in stone, but i have a few people i intend on working with and jamming with! As soon as things are hashed out, i'll make more of an announcement. I'll be playing solo shows still, but i'll be able to bring more to the table with a full band.
I am also working on a possible video for "I'm a Zombie", and i am really excited to say after two production meetings, things are looking good.
Lastly, I have started a Patreon Account!
So, for those who want to help with music and creating content, they can donate to my art there, Music is expensive. keeping the site going isn't free either.
In return I plan on Launching a Weekly Pod-Cast, where i will play new material, talk about what's going on, general nerdy stuff, and even feature guests. I am going to post a dedicated Blog Post just for it within the week!
BUT ANYHOW...why you all came here!!! The Bands...This week Featuring:
Ford Theatre Reunion:
The Ford Theatre Reunion has been on a quest to return sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll to the circus since 2008. Despite the unusual instrumentation, challenging song arrangements, and fanciful dress, even the casual observer will recognize what FTR's main purpose is: to fuck shit up. Let no one say the accordion cannot devastate buildings and earlobes. Let no one say the clarinet cannot be scary. I LOVED THESE GUYS. I opened for them in Columbus Ohio at Ruby Tuesday's Live. Seriously, They BLEW ME AWAY!

Cute Fills is a punky indie band from St. Augustine, FL. I loved these guys, fantastic energy, great people, and a fun crowd. I enjoyed opening for the at THWNN. I've been listening to there EP in my car, and I can tell you one thing for sure, they are serious about scary movies...they own swamp thing on LASER DISC.
They don't have a bio i can rip off, so i guess i have to be creative here, these guys just gave off a really cool vibe onstage. From Milwaukee Wisconsin, they bring an interesting kind of pop rock indie feel reminiscent of The Violent Femmes. I enjoyed them. It was truly a blast opening for them at Kafe Kerouac in Columbus Ohio.

That's all for today!
thanks for the continuing Support!
love ya babies!
So, per Usual i am working as hard as possible to bring you all new music and from what i was told i should have my full CD back to me by the weekend, so, fingers crossed.
My show schedule is heating up! I have a ton of house shows coming up where i will be featuring some stuff i am newly working on. I also have a few shows out of town in the works! This Friday 8/7/15 I'll be in Akron Ohio at Chucks Steakhouse for Acoustic night. Check my ReverbNation or Website Tour Dates Page for all the dates i have confirmed.
I am also in talks and Pre-Production for a music video of my song "I'm a Zombie". The goal is to complete it by end of August. I'll be contacting actors/extra soon. I have so much to coordinate.
Aside from that i am playing around with and have been live streaming practices and things on the Periscope app for Android and IOS. So, if you wanna watch me play some jams and or just chat at me while writing you can do such by downloading the app and following @Peteglamroxxx, the same as my twitter Handle. It's a really fun app and it allows me to connect with you guys!
Thanks for reading, i'm off to play Bass tonight with The Runovers as the Guest Bassist.
Love ya little demons!
Today is a special addition of the Wednesday Music Run-Down. I am Featuring an Old Friend of mine's Youtube Channel as well as Three artists/musicians/bands Today!
Every Wednesday i am going to be posting about Bands and Musicians I've opened for, played shows with, and generally like and Listen to. I'm going to Highlight Three acts a week and give a little run-down of the band and things i like about them. #supportlocalmusic and traveling acts. Here are my Three This week for the 3rd volume of the Wednesday Music Run-Down
Punk-alt-pop duo, Mobina Galore, formed in late 2010 by Jenna Priestner (guitar/vocals) and Marcia Hanson (drums/vocals) and are based out of Winnipeg, MB, Canada. These Gals Rock Hard. They blew me away, i bought there CD and Tank I've been sporting around town. I will be following them and hoping they come Back through Columbus again soon. It was great to open up for such a great act.

I actually saw these guys nearly a year ago and they made an impact on me. I typically only focus on Bands I've played with, but they are the first that break tat exception. There CD "Restless" Has such a great sound, It's really in a category of it's own. I picked us shirt and CdD from them to support there tour. They are coming back to Columbus Soon and i plan on catching them. They travel nationwide and are located primarily in L.A., it's great to get acts like this to Columbus Ohio.
Find them Here:
Electro Cult Circus:
Under Genre it reads: Cluster funk alterno Slut jazzabilly freakout rock...That sounds like something i can agree with. The "long description" on there Facebook reads: Artistic sexually pioneers that want to transform yours and our boring chunks of existence into randy and exciting fiestas of glory and gold like when we were kids. Once again, sounds like something i can back. ECC Represents what i like about be a performer. Being different, being yourself, and having fun. I've slowly been getting more and more into them and after meeting several of the members, I've become a huge fan.

As you may know I recently took a little time off, and by a little time i mean 5 days. I Really thought long and hard about where i am going and how i'm going to do it this weekend. Things are hard when you are all on your own...Booking, promoting, running a website and all forms of social media. It's overwhelming at times.
However i owe to all of you, the people who have rooted me on and supported me.
THIS IS MY PLEDGE TO YOU ALL:
I will maintain my site, my media, and my craft. I will continue to bring you new stuff, and content. It's the least i can do.
I worked and played a day long festival Called Live at the Garden Theater Saturday. It really made me think a lot about where i am going. I heard from several people over the weekend... A lot of people said they've been keeping an eye on me. I've been playing any and all shows I can, getting out to shows to support other acts, building friendships, and creating contacts. I'm Pushing myself to be something better. My work ethic was complimented ad commended on several occasions.
I'm proud that people are seeing it and I'm doing my best to bring my best to everyone.
Aside from needing a little help here and there, I've managed to do this on my own, but it's hard. I am really really going to try to keep people interested and involved with what I'm doing. I really am going dedicate more time to my craft and my website. Any and all advice us welcome.
I am also in the works of creating a band to back me. Looking to find a few awesome open minded musicians to form The Demon Dollz band. The name subject to change, i just love it, it has that glam rock sound to it i love. I am also currently looking for a full time manager. It will greatly help me moving forward with booking, promos, and the like.
I've got new music coming out soon, i recorded two weeks ago, but my engineer made it aware that he was having technical issues and they would be resolved soon. My CD will be comprised of 9 tracks, that i am very very proud of.
Lastly, i am updating my show schedule, and i have a METRIC TON of dates to add. In town and out of town. so be on the look out for added dates to my schedule. I am excited to see some of you out there!
As always i love you guys!
Also, here is some pics from the Garden theater show:
