"When Craig comes into the studio I already know the bottom of the mix is going to kill.  His feeling and musicianship are unmatched in my book"

This past October I had a busy month with Roosevelt Dime. Between road gigs in PA, NY, and CT we managed to record four new songs and a new video. The new songs will be used immediately to pitch to presenters and promoters but may be included on the next RD cd. Time will tell but we’re excited how they came out. The new video is a song called “Red Shoes” that our very own Andrew Green wrote. It was shot at Cafe Nine in New Haven and can be seen here. Check it out!

Last month we had shows in CT, MA, VT, and NY. And in between all this madness we managed to fit in a couple of photo shoots. These pics will provide us with some new social media content as well as print media. 

Roosevelt Dime also attended the Northeast Association of Campus Activities. Colleges have many events throughout the year needing entertainment and we felt perfect for such a conference. Crossing our fingers some good gigs come out of it. 

This month besides shows in NY, ME, and CT we are preparing for a tour of California in February. We’ll have about nine shows around northern and central CA. 

Also this month we’re arranging a new cover tune to pitch to radio and youtube. Ever heard of “American Girl” by and artist named Tom Petty?? Look for it early next year. 

Next month we’ll start off the year with shows in DC, MD, NY, NJ, CT, ME, and VT. No rest for the wicked.
