In memory of our friend Craig

00

As some of you may heard, our good friend and owner of our hometown bar in Naugatuck, The Eleven, passed away a few days ago.. He was a kind man and he was dead and creamery family. We all loved Craig and this one hurts for sure.

He was the first bar owner to give creamery a chance and let us grow as a band. That is why we always still play The Eleven and we will be forever grateful to him for it. One night a few friends and I went to see Scott Guberman playing at The Eleven randomly because DAMN how could I not have known about a dead bar so close to home?! And as I was looking at pictures and photos all over the wall Donna came up behind me and asked if I liked them and if I wanted to meet the person who took these incredible photos of the dead back in the day. I said hell yeah! And she brought me over to meet Craig. After a few minutes of babbling back and forth it came out that I was in a band trying to start up and would love to play there. He figured, “Ah what the hell, give this dirty hippie a chance.” Luckily he liked us ? because we then started playing there as much as we could, as some points even once a month, to sharpen our skills and build up a following.

This event is now going to be a Craig memorial show on November 3rd at The Eleven.. I always told Craig we will keep playing there until we can pack the place to the rafters for him and we would need to pull a stones and change the name just to keep the bar from being overrun haha. That we would give him the crowd he deserves there. I would really love to see everybody that is eleven and station nation family there for this one. Let’s please make it happen for him!

I am blown away by how much we’ve grown as a band thanks to this man and this bar. He truly supported us and helped give us he confidence to keep expanding on our own originals as well as some sweet covers. He constantly talked us up and told us how we were gonna be something soon and that he would be the first on the road in his VW bus with Donna following us once we get a big tour together. I’ll never forget how much love he showed us… May the four winds blow you safely home, brother Craig!  NFA

  • Another song from October 14 at the I81 Northbound Virginia welcome center.

  • Ran into four of the guys on October 14th at the I81 North Virginia Welcome Center just inside the Virginia state line coming from Tennessee. The welcome center / rest area has an area setup with guitars for travelers to stop and play a while and that’s where I had the pleasure of meeting them and listening for a while. Nice break from driving. Oh and thanks guys for the CD! Love it!!

  • Tonight we went into Horizon Music Group Studios to talk to the man himself, Vic Steffens, and get the process started.

  • Dayum, that was a weekend for the record books!!! We needed a few days of recovery before posting this. Friday night saw Creamery Station roll into Hebron, CT for an appearance at the "sold out" Just Joshin' Music Festival ...whatta fun and creamulicious good time as hundreds joined us and many other talented bands for one helluva raging hoot and good time...this has got be one of the most fun Fall music festivals in Connecticut, and the most comfy digs you can ask for in a music fest; rain, early snow, chilly temps; no problemo, the stage and some of the rooms are indoors at the super nice, yet rustic Camp Hemlocks facility...we love throwing it down here!!! A very special shout out to festival organizer, Andy Mooney , for putting together one of the best parties in the state, and while we're handing out kudos, howz about Cody Urban (guitar)and Isaac Young (sax) for sitting in with us and helping us pack the dance floor for a rip snorting cover of the Billy Preston classic, “Will It Go 'Round In Circles"...some blazing playing by Cody and Isaac on that tune that had the entire Just Joshin' crowd shakin' booty!!!!!!!!!!!! Late night shenagins followed with a variety of late night acoustic jams... All in all, yet another off the charts Just Joshin' Festival for the record books...we look forward to returning to Camp Hemlocks hopefully again in 2020... Stay tuned!!! Saturday afternoon, the Cream bus rolled into "the Valley" for an appearance at the Smoke In The Valley Festival at BAD SONS Beer Co. in Derby, CT!!! A mind blowing variety of micro brews from around the state, along with yummy barbeque and food trucks, and gorgeous Fall weather drew a big crowd to "the Valley" for a fun Saturday afternoon shindig! Following a kick ass opening set by roots rockers, Fingersleeve, Creamery Station took the stage, performing for a crowd of over a thousand beer swilling, but good natured folks, what an appreciative audience... Dayum, whatta off the hook gig... So great to see many of our Station Nation citizens in attendance, along with so many new friends and fans we met that day... Yup, that was a mighty fun show!!!!!!!!!! Great to see live music return to the Smoke In The Valley Festival again, and we hope this may become a regular, annual event for us! If that wasn't enough, a stripped down, (almost) acoustic version of Creamery Station, performing under the moniker of, "Creamery Kid And Friends", hit the stage Sunday afternoon at the Bethany Harvest Festival in Bethany, CT... We performed a set of bluegrassy acoustic versions of some of our Creamery Station songs and rootsy covers!!! Unfortunately rain moved in about 15 minutes into our set, but we enjoyed playing for several dozen hard core fans who danced on in the rain... Turned out to be a fun gig! We would like to thank those of you who soldiered on with us in the rain, we're very appreciative of your fortitude! The large, appreciative, and enthusiastic crowds we performed for this past weekend just shows us how incredibly fortunate we are to have so many devoted and loving fans...we can't thank you all enough!!!!!! We're just so appreciative of your support...we love our friends, fans, and fam...thank you to our Station Nation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🐮🤘👽
