We’re baaack!

Hey everyone,

We’ve moved our site and redesigned it. More changes are likely on the way, but it was time for a site that was easy to update and a new look.

Feel free to roam around and let us know in the comments if there’s anything wrong – broken links. There may be some in blog posts, since the blog was moved as well and I’m just too damn lazy to go back through 4 year old posts to fix them 🙂

We’re working on a new CD – as usual, mixing is taking longer than anticipated because, well… Bob’s a perfectionist! And hooray that he is, because that’s why the music is so freaking awesome 🙂

Big news – we’re playing a show TOMORROW, July 20 from 6-9 pm. We’ll be at the Concerts in the Courtyard series at the Regal Center in Simi Valley. Super easy to get there. Take the 118 to Tapo Canyon, and there we’ll be!

Hope to see y’all there!

2 Gigs and a plea for charity

Hey all,

We are playing 2 gigs – one on September 12 at Blue Ultralounge in Agoura Hills at 8 pm.

The next is at the Relay for Life in Simi Valley from 11 to 1. Be there, walk, and fight to cure cancer! Donate, sponsor a walker. Bob’s wife is walking… Donate here:

More updates to CD-buying goodness

Hey y’all… just wanted you to know that we are adding more links to download our albums every day. Note right there on the left <<<< that you have some links to buy the new Love & Respect CD. If you go to the album listing on our web site, you can see the current places that each CD is available for download.

One other thing… we played a party the other night in LA. Just wanted to post up a vid of Love and Respect live.

Blue Ultra Lounge & Happy Holidays

Well, the numbers were small but loud. MCTC was scheduled to play a 45min set. But the band scheduled to go on after us cancelled. So, we got to play 90mins. That was fun. We played songs we weren’t expecting to play and even when we were done, the sound guy said “play a few more”. Who were we too disappoint? All in all it was a fun night and judging by the crowd, most of you missed it. We’ll forgive you. It was a Thursday (and cold) night right before the holidays.

Now, we’re going to take a little holiday break (I know, we’ve been on break for 2 years). If you haven’t picked up the new CD, it’s available online at any of the music download sites. We wish everyone a Happy Christmahanukkwanzza, Happy New Year and we’ll see you on the other side of the calander.

Cool time in Simi Valley

Happy Holidays to everyone. MCTC played a Toys For Tots Drive in Simi Valley yesterday and we had a ton of fun. The Marines collected over $500 in cash and filled numerous boxes and a Humvee with toys for needy children. We had a blast and the weather was great. It wasn’t 85 degrees but on stage it felt like it. It was great to see so many familiar faces out there rockin’ out to some new tunes and a few old ones also. We played for about an hour and can’t wait to play next week at the Blue Ultra Lounge in Agoura Hills.

Hope to see some more familiar folks out there.

Hey Anne, book your flight and come out to see us!

No way! A new post from MCTC? Yep.

We know, it’s been a while since we posted a blog. We’ve been busy, trust us. We played a 15 minute semi-acoustic set for KHAY radio this past Saturday. KHAY was hosting a benefit for our troops. They were collecting pre-paid phone cards to send to our troops so they can call home for the holidays. All it took was the first song of our set to get the radio station and the folks at the benefit hooked as new MCTC fans. The song we used to hook them………”I Don’t Mind A Girl (with a couple extra pounds)” then “Days A Wastin'”, “Jackrabbit Run & Persuaded” from the new CD and finished with “Simi Valley” because afterall, we played in Simi’s sister city of Thousand Oaks. We gave out bumper stickers and a few CD’s of Love & Respect. (Yes, we now have CD’s) But give us sometime to have our webmaster general update the site with our online store. If you can’t wait for the physical CD to go on sale, go to Itunes or Rhapsody or wherever you download music and buy it. Then we’ll let you know when we’re ready with our online store, so you can buy the physical copy also and give that as a present. The gift of music is “A Beautiful Thing” (why is that in quotes? Look at the track listing for Love & Respect on our music page and you’ll get the joke) That’s it for now.

Oh wait, not done yet. MCTC is playing at the Toys For Tots concert at the Simi Valley Town Center on Dec. 2nd. That is open to the public, just bring an unwrapped toy for some lucky child. We go on around 12:30.

We are also making a guest appearance at Fairfax High School’s Christmas show to play a few MCTC original holiday tunes. I know what your thinking……MCTC holiday tunes? Yep. Page wrote one last year called “Christmahannakwanza” and this years offering is “Santa Clause In Blue”. One holiday song a year. So be ready for MCTC’s new 10 song holiday CD in 2015.

And now that the CD is done, MCTC is gonna hit the scene and play some shows, so be sure to check the webpage or myspace page for upcoming shows. I think the recording break was a little longer then we expected, so be prepared to get ROCKED by us because we have alot of rockin out to do.

Until then……..


Hey Everybody! MCTC’s country music alter-ego, Double-Wide, will be featured on KHAY in Ventura (FM 100.7) this Friday night, Feb. 2nd. The show is called “15 Minutes of Fame” and they will play an interview with Page, as well as a couple of songs from the Double-Wide album “Critically-Acclaimed, Number-One, Smash Hit, Triple-Platinum Debut Record.  Unfortunately, they don’t do streaming internet feeds, so unless you are local, chances are you won’t hear it unless we record it and post it… hmmm………:twisted:

The show starts at 9:00 pm, and we should be on about 9:20, give or take a few minutes. Also, if you like our country stuff, we’ve posted some country tunes on our MySpace site.

In other exciting news, we are done recording our newest album of 16 songs. We are in the process of mastering, and will be burning CD’s soon!! Gigs will follow!!

Oh, and hey – we sent our very first newsletter out today. If you didn’t get it, boohoo for you! What are you waiting for? Sign up to get it already! There’s a link on the left sidebar of The Blog, or you can just do it here.

Thanks for all your support :lol:
