“This is Cameron from Glowing Red. We just want to say that the show last night at Rock Island was so awesome. Out of all the bands we sold the most tickets, 45 to be exact and we totally rocked out to the crowd. It was probably one of the best shows we’ve ever played and Rock Island is a really cool venue. So if you ever have anymore shows there let us know and we’d love to play them. We just wanted to say thanks for getting us the show and giving us a chance. Hope to work more with you. Thanks again.”-GLowing ReD in Denver

Thanks again for all you and Afton have done for us and we’ll ALWAYS send the talent your way!! You have a great thing going here and it’s a pleasure working with you!!” – Dying to Bleed

*NOTE: Afton is always happy to give a good reference for our bands that have been reliable and easy to work with when they are seeking other shows.

“That’s cool. We’ll be on the lookout for Sundays that come available and we’ll keep in touch. There are only a handful of promoters that really treat the bands well and you guys are one of them so if we get some things rearranged I’ll definitley get in touch. Thanks a lot Joe and I hope the business continues to be successful for you.” – Nate from About John

“We had the most people in the crowd , thanks for sponsoring the show. Although, we not satisfied with the equipment that was provided, such as; microphones and also the sound,too much bass was drowning out the rest of the beat.We had asked the sound provider to turn the bass down twice and no effort was made.But we are still interested in using your services in the future. Thank You for the opportunity!” – Skylone

*NOTE: Since Skylone had sound problems with their set–Afton contacted the venue to make sure management discussed this with their sound person. Afton also will book Skylone for another venue in town as well.

The show was pretty good but there was a lot of stress between us. So unfortunately I had to fire the boys. I am currently looking for new members and I will keep you posted on the out come. Thanks anyway I had a great time inspite of the troubles and look forward to doing some more shows with you.” – Mac From McKenzie Creek Band

All of our efforts and trys will be focused and set fully to this. we are extremely sorry, and hope that this does not cost you any problems. And if it does tell us anything we can do to make it up to you. We regretfully are pulling out of this slot, to focus our efforts on our demo, and then release it in the following month at an amazing show. Once again we are all extremely sorry for any problems we may have caused. please keep us posted on upcoming shows. We are extremely grateful for your help and support. Hope All Is Well.”

Your attitude sounds/reads great and I look forward to the chance to work together. Hell’s kitchen…hmmm…if you’ve got a bill I fit on cool…looks a little rough and tumble for a singer/songwriter like myself, but I’m not one to turn down a gig over a small ass kicking. It looks like I could do an acoustic set on Jan. 28th…and then it’s mid April before I’m open again. Not to say I’m out touring, but I’m making a record that requires my full and undivided attention until then. Again, thanks a ton for the interest. Let’s keep banging it back and forth until we can work something out. Cool,G.”
