How come yer ears look all stupid and stuff?

How come yer ears look all stupid and stuff?

At upcoming shows, you might find yourself wondering why we now have strange, multicolored thingies in our ears. Well, we done growns up. We are making the leap to using in-ear monitors in an effort to make our stage volume a little quieter. It will also allow us to hear the things we need to hear a little bit better, as we are able to change what we hear on the fly via our iPhones. Fancy, huh? We promise this will make us sound at least 9% better, although, we’ll still probably play that damn Rick Springfield song from time to time, so try not to judge us too harshly. And, since many famous artists, like those below, use these devices, by the transitive property we can conclude that FlashMob! will now find instant fame and fortune. Science,...
FlashMob! featured in MSP Weddings Magazine

FlashMob! featured in MSP Weddings Magazine

Well, we like to think that we’re awesome. Someone told us once, so we’re sticking with it. But, Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine thought we were awesome enough to be included in their “The New Face of Wedding Bands” article in their latest Weddings issue. Joe Lover, lead guitarist and chief lawn mower, talked about how important energy is, as well as the need for a memorable experience not only for the bride and groom, but for the wedding party and their guests. Get out there, grab the current issue, and read some words! It’s good for you, similar to carrots and reality TV.  ...
FlashMob! plays Canada, ehhh?

FlashMob! plays Canada, ehhh?

Sure, we’ve played all over the midwest. Exotic locations such as Chippewa Falls (oooh!) and Des Moines (ahhh!) have become the norm for us. You can get a little jaded living this posh lifestyle. And, to make matters worse, FlashMob! has now officially gone international. Yup. We’re just that huge and famous and rad and good at microwaving burritos. FlashMob! headlined a big ol’ outdoor festival just north of the border in the lovely town of Fort Frances. The people were kind, the reception was warm, and the steak dinner was steaky. Seeing throngs of legally drunk 19 year olds took some getting used to (they’re just kids, damn it!), but we’re working on it. We also visited a Tim Horton’s at 3am. For those who are unfamiliar, it’s basically the greatest post-show food source on earth. America, get your head in the game and ask Tim to wear some red, white and blue. Sadly, no one said, “hoser.” Not once. Ugh. Was the trip even worth it? I just don’t know.         Photos by Clint...
The “Not Really a Tour” Tour

The “Not Really a Tour” Tour

Sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll.  That’s what most people think happens when a band goes on tour.  Well, that may be true for major bands, but not really true for your friendly, neighborhood cover band. For FlashMob!, it’s more crappy hotel rooms, Kyle insisting on Taco Bell and terrible beer, and other people’s rock n’ roll.  Oh, and we probably lost Jamie.  Either that, or she’s packed up in the trailer along with the rest of our gear.  Again. As a part-time cover band, we generally play 2-4 times a month, but we’re blowing that out of the water for this summer.  We have a busy summer this year that will take us from the mostly pristine lakes of Lake Okoboji all the way up to Canada where Kyle hopes to find even worse beer than we have down here.  Sprinkle some weddings, corporate shows, and other festivals in there and you have about as close to a tour as a part-time cover band can get. Starting June 20th, we kick off the first of eight shows in six straight weekends, for a total of 11 shows in 11 weekends.  For the full listing of dates on this summer’s tour, check out our website at http://flashmobrocks.com/tour/. Come on out to a show for hugs, whiskey, and music that will make you dance until you sweat uncomfortably. Throwing up devil’s horns for rock, Your friends at FlashMob!...
Halloween in Faribault?! Umm, yes please

Halloween in Faribault?! Umm, yes please

If you’ve been to a FlashMob! halloween show in the past, you know these events tend to get a little out of hand. Great music. A lot of jumping and dancing. Maybe, well, a little sip of an alcoholic beverage or seven. And, a TON of mostly naked ladies with the occasional wardrobe malfunction. Keep your fingers crossed! Get down to Grampa Al’s in Faribault on Friday, October 31. Music starts at 10pm. And, be sure to arrive in your sexy [insert any word here] costume, as there will be awesome prizes for the best costumes! Once again. Wardrobe...
