Hello... hello... is this thing on?

Yeah, it's been a while since the last update. But it's not like we've been sitting on our hands. The big green Kinagree-Smith machine has been as busy as ever doing what it does the very best... changing the whole freaking world.

Well, maybe not just yet, but we are working on it trust me.

On a personal note, a big part of what this band does is look for a new way to do the whole music biz thang. While people are pretty much use to the old music biz paradigm, it wasn't really working out that well, and was not working at all for us.

Pressing on...

Last night we played two live shows. We played “The World Cafe”, and then headed over to “The Nuclear Hootenanny”. We've planed to Play the World Cafe for a while now and finally got around to doing so. How did we do? Well... Planet Kinagree-Smith slammed into the World Cafe, and left a creator the size of Texas. Vide,Vichci, Rockie.... we came, we saw, we ROCKED.

We didn't get any video. We brought the camera, but didn't have anybody we trusted to work it for us.

We got to the Hootenanny pretty freaking late. We were thinking we might not get to play, but Kenn and Company seemed happy to see us and tucked us in before Kenn did the closer song. We played the traditional two songs, then was asked to play another, and after that, another songs and as I was putting my guitar away, we were asked to play yet another song. This is pretty cool. Maybe we are catching on.

Ohhh video

So what have we been working on that has left the blog so un-updated? We have been working on a Production video. This means not just shoot a live show, but make a real-ish video. While we have been working on this for the last couple of weeks, we haven't shot a any video of the band yet. We have however done a lot of animation work and what we have so far could make a pretty spiffy video.

We do intend to make it even more spiffy by adding video of us to the mix.

The song the video features is, “Your words” and just between you and I, I've heard that song and awful lot in the last few weeks. The reason we are featuring this song is because it is our “FREE DOWNLOAD” song for those whom belong to our mailing list. Hopefully, more attention to the FREE SONG will cause more subscribers to our mailing list.

Kinagree-Smith concerts on demand?

We are currently discussing posting recordings of our live shows on our web site. We are trying to reach out to as many listeners as possible, and as a step towards this goal, we've posted a device that streams our live shows to the web site. We have a few listeners already from doing this, but there is a problem with this system, and that problem is time. When people all over the world have to be at the same web location at the same time, things get complicated. Just listing the show with all possible time zones would be difficult, but it's possible that some people might never hear the shows just because we are playing at 4 am in their local time zone.

A simple work around to all these problems is to post recordings of show. That way people can listen to a live show any time they have the time. Brilliant.


Well once the new video is ready, we are planning a major roll out. There are going to be lots and lot of things happening. Check by the blog for the details.

Thanks again for all your support, and as always, expect great things.
