Our good friend and guitarist Stephen Poole and his Fiancee had an amazing wedding Sunday. We are super happy for them, and were stoked to be a part of their ceremony. Ricky, John and myself were groomsmen, joined by our good friend Mike Nagel (Not pictured). Its great to see such an awesome couple commit to each other for life in love. So huge congrats to the happy couple, we hope they have a great time on honeymoon and return safely. Once they return in a couple weeks Vessel will start playing some shows again! They had a photo booth setup and we decided to grab the props and do a quick band picture.
We have a show on the 15th of march at the dover brickhouse. This is a friday night show. Its a mixed night.. Some acoustic stuff, some hip hop and vessel. Should be a really fun night.

Vessel had a great week this week. John ended up finally getting the guitar head of his dreams… Orange TH100. It sounds so so so .. so awesome. So clean and powerful and the gain is absolutely crushing. Musiciansfriend.com had the “stupid deal of the day” on Stephens dream guitar head. Half price on the 50w version of the combo he uses now. So we couldnt resist grabbing it. And Chris (the bass player) was able to score an 85 Tama Granstar kit for vessel to start gigging with. Sounds awesome. This next show and the shows beyond are going to sound amazing. We’re pumped and ready to put on an awesome show for everyone!

In other news, our music has been submitted to iTunes. According to their scheduling we should be up and available for purchase within 48 hours! Our music was submitted today so if all goes to plan you should see us there on Thursday! We are very excited about this! In addition to itunes we’ve also been submitted to spotify. We’re not sure how long they take to process things.. but keep an eye out and let us know when you see us on the player.
We are so excited. Our cds are here. We can hold the physical manifestation of our efforts in the flesh. Its such an awesome feeling. We quickly took 40 cds to the local music store and dropped them off. So today is a big day for us. Album is here and already on the shelves. if you are local go grab a copy from Skeletone Records in Rochester, nh on Main st. If you are not local you can grab your copy from our online store here: http://vesselnh.com/product/vessel-full-length-album-physical-copy/
Thanks to everyone who pitched in to help us out. We will be starting to mail out the kickstarter rewards next week.
Go buy your copy today!
Vessel should be able to start playing shows more often. We are happy to welcome Chris Boardman to the band as our alternate drummer! We hope to have everything down tight before the show on the 18th. We realize that once the CD is in our hands we have to start getting out there and play shows to sell it. This move to have an alternate drummer really takes some weight of Ricky’s shoulders. It’s been tough being a few states away, trying to work in shows with his work and teaching schedule. So this gives the band more flexibility, which is certainly needed. So come see us on the 18th and give us a listen! Our Cd will be here in time for the show on the 18th. since the show is free you should spend $10 and grab a copy of the album while you are there
Vessel has been invited to play with VYGR in manchester on October 18th. We’ll be opening the show and should be on at 9pm. The event details can be found on the event on the calendar.

We are also taking preorders here in our store!
Sent some money to the replicators and they are looking over the artwork. We received our barcode number yesterday for the album. we are so close to finally releasing this thing! We’ll keep you all updated! We are also trying to make an October 18th show workout too. Just trying to work out the job conflicts right now. We’d be playing with VYGR which would be a huge honor!
