2010 and why Dion Roy fans are the best since 2009. #taco

As I hit the road to Hartford Connecticut and write this blog, (Pete’s driving, I’m not literally driving and writing a blog post, though that would be impressive wouldn’t it. Its not often that I get a sane minute to actually get my thoughts together, so here it goes.

First off, I want to thank so many of you for relentlessly spreading the word about “Dion Roy”, the man, the band, the taco stand. Its a crazy world this business of being a musician, and it doesn’t look like its going to be any less crazy in 2010 – but I can feel the stars aligning and I have no doubt this is going to be a big year, filled with music and good tidings. (Can you use tidings post December? Comment below) Point is – we are going to have some fun in 2010, I can feel it.

The second order of bidness I want to point out is that I’ve been working hard on a new EP whose album name has yet to be released pending a few things, but its coming out amazing. My new guitar player Pete, who is also an engineer has really been a help in getting the songs done, and for those of you who have seen me live, know he sings the best harmonies this side of Simon of Garfunkel. It looks like it will be short and sweet, so that we can take our sweet time with it and really make it amazing. It looks like we are going to have 5 songs this time around – all of which are going to knock your socks off. Doing an EP just seems to be the reasonable thing to do, as it costs quite a bit to record an album – and we don’t want to cut any corners, and we haven’t – so get excited – these are the best songs so far.

The next order of business, is similar to the first – and its being underscored because of how important it is. I want to take just a minute to appreciate a few very special twitter fans. The full list is happening, just not on this post. I’m sorry. The links will be added soon, but for now you will have to find them on your own.

@jacquiiiii – Without even knowing me well, offered to do the Merch table at the Ryan Cabrera show, and she pwned it. The typos is intentional. google it. Im a nerd. Thank you.
@taylor_blue – This lovely person has been pushing the music since she heard it. She has posted a link to my site on her celeb entertainment site tengossip.com and has sent countless fans to me.
@tc1jkfan – Watch out for this newcomer, she has taken over the Social Media world, you can’t get far without seeing her talk about the next Dion Roy show or the next Taco joke. She’s on like tron.
@willow_raine – Always chimes in with exactly the right thing to say. She has also sent countless new fans to the Dion Roy mailing list. A real beleiver. Thank you.
@hello_jodie – Jodie, not for the faint of heart, she will go there. If theres a line, she’ll cross it guaranteed. She keeps things interesting and is my favorite swooner.
@sassysam2121 – Dion Roy thongs, nuff said.
@superwoman357 – I think she has single handedly delivered my music to the entire state of Connecticut. Her cover of Wants It was just the icing on the cake.

This list is growing, and I really can’t wait to see what you guys have up your collective sleeves. Whatever it is it will be good.

Now its time to practice for the slew of shows and TV performances in the next couple weeks…. More to come…

-Dion

Happy New Year! First stop in 2010: Highline Ballroom

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Can you believe we are already a week into the New Year? Anyhoo, I want to thank you all for all your support in 2009. We started out the New Year with a very exciting show with Ryan Cabrera at Highline Ballroom a few nights back on January 4th – and it was fantastic! It was such a great show – the place was packed and it was an amazing night of meeting fans, friends, and new people. Because I’m a nice person and love to give back, I’m including some pictures for those who didn’t get the chance to make it out (or those who did and would just like to relive it!)

Here’s me and Pete on stage at the Highline:

Solo shot of me on stage:

A nice shot of the audience:

And finally, the best for last, a video of me performing “Wants It”

For more pictures and videos, check out DionRoy.com – and be sure to check out the upcoming shows! We’d love to see you all :). Here’s to a great year!
