Introducing: BUSHWO(RL)D

Good morning, and in case we don’t see you later (or you read this later), good afternoon, good evening and good night!! Hope you had a great 09/09/09 yesterday on Wednesday (9 letters) in this wonderful month of September (9 letters), which happened to be the 252nd day of the year (yup, adds up to 9!) It’s almost like that movie “23” but real life and they decided on a different number instead!

But all Jim Carrey movie references aside, we have a couple of items (why not make it 9?) to address in this issue of BUSHWO(RL)D <-- (you see what we did there, the parenthesis are like an “O” but we snuck in the "RL" ummhmm ya – very clever, we know!) So, here we go!


1) The Show at Murphy's!
Our show last Saturday (September 5th) at Murphy’s Downtown in Boca was pretty incredible!!! We had an excellent turnout from our loyal group of fans and friends, and we just want to give an extra thanks for coming out on a holiday weekend! You guys really are the shit! We rocked it hard for you, brought out some brand spankin’ new songs, and old favorites as well :) Also, thank you Murphy’s for hooking up the gig and to Skafyah for sharing the stage with us. More show announcements to come soon!

2) New Website & Revamped Blog!
We just created our own social network with the address
http://BushwoodBand.ning.com which has some very cool features. We recommend checking it out and taking a look around!
Also, we have completely updated and redesigned the Bushwood Blog (located at
http://BushwoodBand.blogspot.com) Check that out too!

3) Bushwood Merchandise thru Zazzle!
We are EXTREMELY excited to have found this website and be able to offer you an exclusive chance to sport BUSHWOOD merchandise! Essentially, we set up some basic designs for Bushwood shirts, but what’s sick about it is that you can then go in and completely personalize or customize your shirt. No longer are the days when you either liked the design or didn’t; now YOU have the option of shirt color & style, as well as design placement. Check this out:

4) Fan Reviews!
You must know by now that we are ALL about our fans, which means you! To everyone that has come out to a show since Bushwood relocated to the South Florida, we want to hear from you! You guys have been great with posting pictures but now we want to take it a step further – let us know what you think about a show once it all goes down! You have many options of where to post your thoughts, but we would love it if you would either mention @BushwoodBand on Twitter, post it on our Facebook page, comment on our blog with it, or just e-mail it to
BushwoodBandFL@gmail.com! Let’s hear it!!

5) Recording!
We are ready to record our songs and share them (in pristine quality) with the world! If you happen to know anybody that can help us out, has a studio (or knows someone that does), or can recommend one, PLEASE reach out to one of us and share the wealth! We are looking to and have enough incredible songs to record a full length album, but would be more than happy to release an EP at this juncture! Reach out to us if you got anything!

6) Are you a true Bushwood fan?
First of all, we want to thank all of you for reaching out and showing us some love, whether by “becoming a fan” on Facebook, “following us” on Twitter, or appreciating us & our music on various other sites like: YouTube, ReverbNation, MySpace, BandCamp, iLike, etc. If you love us and love the party atmosphere that we provide, show that love through the internets – don’t be shy!

8) Love
9) & Reggae!!!

Profile Picture CONTEST! We need YOU!!!

Hey there! Hope you are having a great Thursday! We are rapidly closing in on the weekend, and only 3 days away from hitting the stage at Murphy’s Downtown in Boca!!

So, here’s the deal: We need a new profile picture for our sites all over the interwebs, and we need YOUR help! The winning photo will be displayed on our Website, Blog, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, YouTube, ReverbNation, iLike, BandCamp, Last.FM, and various other BUSHWOOD destinations on the internet thing! And we will of course credit the director of photography accordingly :)

Unfortunately, our “band camera” was stolen over last weekend :( therefore leaving us with no way to document the historic show that will take place on Saturday night… We know you have a camera and were maybe thinking about bringing it – PLEASE DO!! AND PLEASE TAKE AS MANY PICTURES AS POSSIBLE!!!

Whoever takes the “BEST” picture that includes all 3 band members will be rewarded handsomely! (Can you say “FREE BUSHWOOD SHIRT?!?”)

All you have to do is bring that camera we were talking about and snap away furiously! Then, when you get home, you can either upload the pictures to your Facebook & tag the band members*, upload pictures directly to the fan photos on the BUSHWOOD fan page, or send them directly to the band e-mail: BushwoodBandFL@gmail.com.

That’s it for now! We hope you guys are excited about Saturday night!! We can’t wait!!! :) See you then!

Peace, Love, & Reggae!
BUSHWOOD

* Band Members: (Friend us on Facebook if you have not already!)
Steven Voronkov [Guitar/Vocals]
Adam Moskowitz [Bass Guitar]
Jon Cross [Drums]

The End of Summer…

Hey there! Here we are just a couple of days away from our next live performance, which essentially will close the chapter of Summer 2009, and we find ourselves both reflecting over the last couple months, as well as looking forward with excitement to the coming ones…

Summer is a tricky time – it is always long anticipated and usually gone before anyone is ready to say goodbye. It’s just too short! But somehow its brevity produces good times that are above & beyond what the other seasons have to offer. The sun, along with the majority of people, is out in full force – some are on a break from school, some travelling the globe, some continuing on the daily grind. Overall, it is just a more lax time of the year where everyone can get loose together and forget about their ‘normal’ responsibilities for a night or weekend.

We have had the pleasure of playing 3 shows (about 1 per month) over this sweet summer, and we feel that we have improved drastically with each show. Now, by “improved” we don’t JUST mean our performances on stage, but our overall sense as a band, our songwriting, our musicianship, and most importantly, our relationship with you, our fan. We cannot stress enough how grateful we are and we thank you for reciprocating that love!

We can’t wait to hit the stage this Saturday, September 5th at Murphy’s Downtown, and before we go, we just want to give a shout out to SKAFYAH who will be playing after us – check them out and show them how South Florida music fans hold it down! We go on at 10 pm and you do not want to miss this show!!! See you there!

We leave you with this thought:
“The tans will fade, but the memories will last forever.” :)

Nothing Gold Can Stay...

Peace, Love, & Reggae!
