Glad to see many of our friends come out to the show at ‘The Ten Eleven’. We had a ‘fill-in’ drummer Ryan Gonzales from the band Mount Sherpa which ironically played right after us! We all just had a great time!
Our friend Andrew Christian of ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ Photography came by and took a few pictures…very nice! Thanks a million! We also tried some new merch ideas. Fern’s wife has a business called ‘Amber’s Organics’she makes organic health and beauty products by hand. She has a line of body soap bars that she brought and everyone loved them. They were such a hit that she is going to custom make ‘Heat of the Sun’ bar soap and “YOU” get to have a say in it. Just message us on Facebook. or in the comment section below and tell us what kinds of ‘smelly herbs’ you like for example Jasmin and Thyme, Rosemary etc. She will custom make those up for our next gig. They are all natural ingredients vegan friendly no animal products or testing. Very good stuff!
We also had our new tee-shirts and sold several thanks to everyone who picked one up. Our next big goal is release of our EP, so we can have CD’s on our merch table as well. We’ll keep everyone posted and will definitely have a great time!!!
Our next gig is April 11th. yea it’s kinda’ short notice but they had a band drop out due to injury (get well dude). So we’ll be playing one of our favorite places ‘The Ten Eleven’ in San Antonio, TX. We go on at 9pm. Four great bands- Heat of the Sun, Mount Sherpa, See you in the Morning and Vorcha. We’ll have t-shirts available along with some organic soaps made especially for us by Amber’s Organics. Come have fun and for $5 a cheap night of music!!

Our guitar player’s (Fern) wife has been in the organic business for a long time, and has made some custom bar soap for Heat of the Sun called “Rockin’ Rosemary”. Which is very cool- we been using it and considering having it on hand at shows on the merch table. You can check out her website and the tons of products she makes with only natural stuff and no animal testing!!

Hey, Allen here. Jordan our drummer was in town for the spring break. I worked my reg gig as a freelance sound guy in TV with E! Entertainment during the Film portion of SXSW 2014. Then Jordan and I went up to Austin to catch the scene. I went to a few sessions on ‘Touring on a budget’ and ‘DIY Silk Screening’. Caught a few bands and had a good time. One of my high lights was at the ‘Flatstock’ art show. I’m always looking for art for future album and poster art. Ran across Buzzo from The Melvins and John Dyer Baizley guitarist for Baroness, and my favorite artist. I love his art work. Hope to feature his art on one of our covers! I know we are still in the mist of releasing our EP, but we are always looking forward!
Other News; Have been working with our fill in drummer Paul Gamboa had a few practices and coming along. We are working on some shows in April also look for some new songs. We also will keep you updated on a CD release show.
We are also getting geared up to do a video to promote the EP and have a great time! We have a story line and it will be fun! No band preforming on a mountain with an Eagle swooping down…. NO not that funny. Stay tuned we are working on guest appearances by some members of our other local band bros!
Stay tuned and support local music!
Thanks for your support!!!

Jordan is back off to DBU so he’ll be out until May. Until then we’re rehearsing a sit-in drummer. We’re going to shoot for a late Feb show to introduce him to you.
