For both Billy Proulx and the Crew it has been an eventful year. Beginning with March 8th when they headlined at BB Kings, right through to December 26 playing Friday Night Live in the Claremont Village, in was an eventful year full of many gigs and adventures. The highlight may have been the encore at the Blackwatch Dec. 19th. What a night! There was also the release of "Pinch Me/Keep My Spirit Clean" and the third year running for BLUE MONDAY at the Buffalo Inn. And then there has been Billy's Amy Scruggs adventure: opening for Clint Black, playing the Ontario Arena for the USO and the KGO Christmas Concert at Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center, not mention playing a couple of Arizona casinos and playing Dobro on Amy's Debut CD "Right Here, Right Now". Wait! Let me catch my breath. O.K. That brings me to 2009. We at Backstop Music have taken a solemn oath to have new product out in 2009. The first release will probably be a Jon 'Sparky' McConnell CD, titled "Jonny Magic". There is a back up To "Do You Wanna Go?" in the works. There are other projects. Actually The Crew has been in the studio a lot over the last few years. Its matter of sorting things out. So stay tuned and we are looking forward to seeing everybody at the Blackwatch Jan. 16th.
