The Maiden Voyage

Hi All,

It's the morning after and all I can say is thanks to the folks who traveled from near and far to our just shy of sold out show in Kentucky at the Syndicate last night. It was our maiden voyage but you guys made it feel like we were old friends or at a family reunion. Well, it was actually and we had a blast.

Of course it wasn't without incident. Rental amps that would not cooperate. A monitor system that didn't get sorted out until half way thru the show (Thank God it finally did!). But, that's what it's all about. That's all part of Rock n Roll as well as life. Expect the unexpected. Wish you all could have been there.

I want to say a special thanks and what a great job my new band did. I'm proud to introduce them to you:

On guitar/ Adam Holland
Bass / Gerard Zappa
Keys / Craig Pullman
Drums / Mike Morales

We especially enjoyed playing some new songs and think we have a winner if your reaction was any indication, with a track called "Riverside". We're hoping to wrap up the recording of that one this week and perhaps release it as a first single ASAP. It currently has my good friend Nick Lynch on background vocals but won't be complete until I get Marge Raymond to add her special "thang" to the mix. She's a monster. She's sang with everbody.

So in closing, we're back "Home Again" and thinking of our next outing. Who knows? Maybe it'll be in your home town next. I hope so!

`Til we meet again,

Steve Augeri

P.S. Thanks to promoter Rick Warner, Cincinatti radio's Trish McKinnley and Steve Mann for having me on the air and getting the word out, our great local crew as well as the awesome staff at the Newport Syndicate. What a cool venue. See ya!

It's Good to be "HOME AGAIN".

Happy Labor Day weekend all,

I'd like to share a song with you, a taste of things to come from my new unreleased CD, "In The Moment".

It's a song is called "Home Again" and was initially written about visiting my old neighborhood in Bensonhurst Brooklyn. Then later, after many years of touring with Journey, the simple joy of coming home to my loved ones not to mention my own bed.

But today, I can't help but think of the many, although not all of our service men and women, returning home and picking up the pieces after being away so long and how good it must feel to get their boots back on the ground here on Home turf. Back in the USA.

Welcome Home! This Buds for you!

So just click or punch in this link,, go to the 'Music" page of my website, press stop (the little square) on the bottom right hand side of the page and press play to the left of 'Free Down load Coming Soon".

I hope you like it.
