8 years, 1,000+ shows, 6 cds, 8 members and no regrets. Boulder Acoustic Society has been a wild ride. Besides all the great music and wonderful people we have met, BAS also provided us with the skills and contacts to build our careers on. It is with sad and grateful hearts that we announce the end of Boulder Acoustic Society.
Big thank yous to all the people who bought tickets and merch, fed us, housed us, bought us beer and made us feel safe and welcome on the road. Thanks to all our families for supporting our great experiment. Thanks to all our partners, promoters, agents, managers, co-conspirators, cohorts and minions for believing in us and risking your money and reputation. We could not have done anything without all of you and the time and energy you sank into us. Another sincere thank you coming your way: thank you.
Don’t worry, we are staying busy: Neil is playing bass with Safe Boating Is No Accident, The Pink Hawks and The Quiet American as well as freelance. Scott McCormick has a new band called Lee Avenue that features his original music and is freelancing photography, design and music. Scott Aller took a business development manager position with Ticketmaster/Live Nation, still runs his music business consulting firm 5280 live and is playing drums with Lee Avenue. Aaron is moving to Hood River, OR to build musical instruments for Mya-Moe and focus on his solo project, The Quiet American. Please visit the collection of rc cars and see below for links and contact info.
Lastly, we are looking to sell our trusty van, Black Betty/Kevin. It is a tricked out Dodge/Mercedes Sprinter with cargo area, dvd player and lots of bad attitude. Email Aller if you are interested.
