Sincere Thanks to Old & New Friends Alike!!

What a great night we had at The Blockley Pourhouse!!! With the moderate face-lift the Blue Method has undergone with the addition of JOE TRUGLIO on drums and the [re]addition of LUKE O'REILLY on keys, nothing feels better than to have both new and old faces partying with us when we come back home!

Last Friday was one of our first shows in a good minute in a new venue, and your overwhelming support is greatly needed and above all APPRECIATED!! We thank you all for coming out and singing along, buying CD's, and DANCING EXTRA HARD like never before! We love it and it keeps us going!

In the midst of all the revamping, we are currently working on writing NEW MUSIC and changing our live show. What kinds of songs/covers/etc do you want to see more of from us? Know of any new (to us) venues where you would love to see The Method? Leave a comment, visit us on Facebook, Tweet us, or simply give us a shout at the next show! Keep checking back for more updates and we look forward to seeing and hearing from you!

Take it light party people,

Rah & TBM

Oh, What a Night......

"WOW" pretty much sums up all of last night's show at the BLUE NOTE! Between an amazing vocal night by Brian, another stellar performance by our newest addition JOE TRUGLIO, and having the homie LUKE O'REILLY literally destroy the organ and all things keys....we couldn't have asked for a better time in the Big Apple. The place was packed, everybody was on their feet and in their seats grooving hard, and the energy from the crowd was nothing short of inspiring and out of this world! What an experience!

Each night we play a place like the Blue Note is quite an experience. Knowing the legendary performers that played and continue to play on that stage is quite humbling, and it's an honor to receive so much love and appreciation from new and old patrons alike. Energy like last night's, Theron's tribute show last March at WORLD CAFE LIVE, and honestly every single show are what have kept us going through the years. So on behalf of the Blue Method, I offer everlasting LOVE and GRATITUDE to all of our f(riends)ans for always showing up, showing out, and sticking around to say hello at every gig. After almost 10 years, it still is only the beginning and we have so much more for you!

Meth-heads, Funkateers, Blue-Boos and all other titles, LONG TIME NO TALK!!! It's amazing how much has happened in the past year since I last blogged. Where else to begin than the beginning....

First off, so sorry I haven't been able to keep everybody up to to date with all of our comings and goings...I PROMISE TO DO BETTER!! A lot of changes have been made in the Blue Method, but rest assured that we are not going ANYWHERE. Special thanks to ALL 600 OF YOU that came out to World Cafe Live last month for yet another spectacular sold-out night. It was a special evening indeed as we paid tribute to our #1 drummer THERON SHELTON; his entire family was in the house and sincerely thanks all of YOU (his "Other Family," pun intended lol) for sharing so much positive love and support for them and us!

Secondly...NEW MUSIC!!! You got a taste of some new goodies on VOLUME LIVE....this summer we'll be hard at work at putting together a NEW ALBUM for you all! Expect to see some new music previews at all of our upcoming shows, make sure you're in attendance when we hit your city to say hi and give us your feedback!

Let's see what else....ah yes, you may notice a few new faces with us! We thank our good friend CHARLIE PATIERNO for stepping up and rocking with us on drums for the past year, GOOD TIMES INDEED! As Charlie moves on to explore some new musical opportunities, we like to welcome another friend of ours JOE TRUGLIO to the Blue Method. Joe might be familiar to some of you already; he's a WORLD-RENOWNED drummer and musician, great Philadelphia talent and has already sat in with us on numerous occasions! We are extra excited to have him in the fold, be sure to come out and welcome him to the family!

That's all for now folks, thanks to all of our long-time and new fans alike for keeping up with us and always showing us love and support. 2010 is looking to be a BIG year for the Blue Method, make sure you're all holding on tight for this ride!!!

make it funky,

It's no secret that the pain we've been been feeling has been beyond difficult for us and the Shelton family. It's with the greatest sincerity that THE BLUE METHOD and THERON'S FAMILY thank the fans for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. For all of you that came to the funeral, have written, called, bumped our music and come out to support....WE THANK YOU!! It means so much to us when our fans stand by us as FRIENDS!

We're back THIS WEEKEND in Philly to get down at Warmdaddy's! We'll have special guests CHARLIE PATIERNO and JOE TRUGLIO on drums Friday and Saturday. Help continue to support the Blue Method by coming out or going online and purchasing VOLUME LIVE! If you're still digging back to keep up with our older music, KILL THE MUSIC VOLUME 1 and for the first time this year VOLUME 2 are both available at shows and online at ROPEADOPE DIGITAL!

We thank you all again for rocking with us through this tragedy, the support is great medicine for helping us heal! Continue to post your thoughts and love to our FACEBOOK, MYSPACE, and BLOG SITES!! Keep checking back for our show updates and other news!
