Dear Tom, Linda, Randy, Noel, Alena, Ritt, and everyone else at Tubby's,
We don't know what's going to happen next, but we just want to say thank you.
About 5 years ago, you gave us a gig. 6 people showed up. We were embarassed. You said "keep coming back". We did. A lot. Every CD release party. The launch of our first crowdfunding campaign. Countless Millennium Music Conference showcases. Shows with Rob Simon and the amazing 105.7 The X.
You gave us the opportunity to share your stage with so many amazing acts, Pop Evil, Otherwise, Alien Ant Farm, Tantric, and so many more. Our most recent show with you was an incredible night dedicated to the passing of Phil's mom. You simply just kept giving us opportunities to grow as musicians and as human beings. We call you home for a reason. You are a major part of our story and everything we have achieved.
30+ shows later, 6 people is now 200 people. We have learned how to become a band under your roof. We are devastated today. You have become family to us, as have so many fans we've met at Tubby's since the beginning. If any of you need anything we are a phone call away.
We ask our fans "Are you With Us?" every time we hit your stage. Today we answer our own question. We are with you.
Special thanks to Mrs. NipNyce Photography for the incredible shot, live at home.
Thank god no one was hurt. We love you Tubby's.
