|7th heaven newsletter – February 2013|
7th heaven is back!!!!!
7th heaven is back in full swing and we have an amazing year ahead.
Our first show with Anthony is this Friday at John Barleycorn in Schaumburg.
We have been working with Anthony on getting up to par on our set and also we have been in the studio working on a new CD that we are on target for a May/June release. The new stuff is coming along really well. We haven’t decided when we’ll start playing our new originals live yet, but they will be soon…
Over the next few months, we will be adding TONS of new things to both our full-band set and unplugged set… yes.. our unplugged show is back. So please be patient with our set over the next month, as we will be adding more and more new stuff, week by week, until summer.
If you have some suggestions, let us know. We are open to all ideas you have.
2013, is going to be a big year for 7th heaven.. the amount of goals we have set for 2013 is the most we have ever had for one year. Not only will we play more shows this year than ever before, but our reach will be farther as well. We are looking forward to a fun year.
In case you missed it last month, here is the video we did to introduce Anthony here:

Some might not know that the very first show 7th heaven ever played in public was at the Kirk Center School, which is a school for kids with special needs.
Relay For Life
We will be doing a show for Relay For Life on March 2 in Bolingbrook. This is a great event and this organization helps raise money to fight cancer. You can get tickets here: http://relay.acsevents.org/site/TR?fr_id=50888&pg=entry
