Bands 4 Bands Bandfest

TNP has joined forces with Bands 4 Bands to help those less fortunate in the Bay Area. The Bandfest event being held on August 26th at Hayward Memorial Park will be a canned food drive to help the Salvation Army feed the homeless. Besides doing something that is a good cause for the community, you will be entertained by some of the East Bay's most talented musicians. This show will feature many different genres of music and will open your ears to new music. Please mark your calendars for this event and come on out to support local music and bring canned food for the Salvation Army.

More details can be found on the Bands4Bands facebook page.

The search for gigs

Finding gigs isn't always easy and this time of year is when you wan to play. The weather is warm and people come out to hear live music. So why is it so difficult to find quality gigs? Might there be too many bands or not enough venues? That's not the case; You can always find a place to host a show. We recently held a concert on St. Patrick's Day at our home away from home, Shine On Studios. Hosting a small concert at your home is a great way to have a captive audience and be able to set your timeframe for how long the show will last. Plus you can do things like get a keg and barbecue some good food for you and your friends.

Networking with local companies is a good way to find some extra gigs that may not have existed until you brought them up. Just because an event doesn't already have plans for live music shouldn't deter you from suggesting that live music should be at the event. Company parties are a great
way to play your music for a group of people that may have never heard your songs before. So get out there and make the best of this summer and have fun playing your music live.

TNP kicks off the summer tour with an intimate show in SF

TNP § 50 Mason Social House |  San Francisco

TNP has been working hard in the studio to get the new music ready for the summer tour. We had an opportunity to perform some of our new music for a select few at the 50 Mason Social House this past Thursday. It felt great to be back on stage and rocking out once again. The support of our fans has really been what fuels us to keep writing new music and booking more shows. Be sure to sign up for our fan list and we'll keep you informed of our next show this summer.

Gearing up for the road

Tour Bus

Being on a long road trip as a band is something we've always wanted to do. This summer, TNP is going to hit the road and get out of the area for a summer mini-tour up to the Pacific Northwest. Since we don't have a lot of experience on the road, please tell us about your road trips on tour. We want to hear good and bad stories or anything that you'd be willing to share.

We're considering extending our tour all that way up to Seattle. At the moment, Portland is our end point, but if we get some requests to keep going all the way to Seattle, we'll do it! Just post your comments here or email us if you want to come see us play in Seattle. We're really looking forward to the trip up to Portland and want to make the most of our adventures out on the road.

Studio work + GoPro videos

TNP will be back in the studio this month for the recording of our new tracks. We will have some new music for everyone to hear very soon. In the meantime, we will also be editing all the GoPro footage we've shot over the past year. Plus, we will be shooting some location footage to splice in. If anyone wants to be in a TNP music video, just message us or comment here and we'll get in touch with you.

Summer Concerts

TNP is currently booking summer 2015 concerts for the Pacific West Coast. We currently have plans to do a tour up through Oregon and Washington. Please contact us if your band would like to join us or have us join a show that you've booked.

Back in the studio | Costume Party

TNP is getting back in the studio to record our first full-length album. We'll be laying down tracks at Shine On Studios in Oakland, CA. We've got some new songs that we'll be performing for the first time in a public venue on Saturday April 4th @ the Red Hat in Concord. Come on out and hear our newest tracks: FEAR, NOT, OBLIVION, & OFF. The energy level of these tracks is mind-blowing intense and we're only a 3-piece band.

So get out your favorite costume and come hang out with all the cool people at the Red Hat this Saturday. It is sure to be one to remember and there will definitely be lots of Instagram photos floating around from this party. We're looking forward to seeing everyone and getting our 2015 spring/summer tour on the road.
