Just a final heads up on Arminta and Blaq Lily.

After 7 years we are going down for the count.

Nov 17 at the Tonic Ball in Indianapolis is our last show.

We have 3 shows between now and then.

Cincinnati this weekend and Pittsburgh next. You can visit our website Arminta.net for details

Thank you all for all of your support through the years!

God Bless

Mikel

Well, I am glad I got to see you perform. I do hope you will still hang out here, and not leave us just because you decided to stop performing.

I certainly will still come around Aaedi.

Maybe even more so with my new found free time.

I have made a lot of great friends here at CRN.

This is obviously not something that I want to hear!
Any time someone in the genre decides to stop, it's disheartening to all of us. It's especially tough when it's great musicians.
At least you've left a legacy in the music and fans. Thanks!

Since it's tough to get it out of the blood, I'm sure we'll hear a resurrection in the future... somehow.

Sorry to hear this! Your music really stood out when I'd hear it on CR.
Will your CDs still be available?

I am so saddened by this news. I just think your music is really wonderful. I am glad I have the CD.

Good luck in all that you do!

ON a very positive note.

Friday was our final show

We headlined Radio Radio for an annual benefit that we have participated in since it's beginning to raise money for Second Helping Food rescue (aka "The Tonic Ball")

We did 3 songs total starting with "and She was" by the Talking Heads (the theme for the venue we worked) We then moved on to "Loch Lommond" (complete with choreography) and ended our careers with Blaq Lily with "An Turas" from our "Forged in the Fire" CD

The room was so full that everyone that wanted to see our last gasp could not get in and I do believe that in almost 8 years I have never heard or seen a crowd cheer and yell for us quite like that. There was certainly not a dry eye on stage or in the green room afterwards.

What a great way to go out!

RIP Blaq Lily

Mikel

Michael aka Raven, has been getting the itch lately and they still have all the songs that were written for the cd that was never made. It's still in a talking stage but this is progress that hasn't been seen in some time. Greg always told me, that someday, he and Michael would be back in a band together again. Time will tell. I hope it happens.

I hope so. They were becoming one of my favorites and I was looking forward to a long and prosperous career before they were cut short.
