Hey all,

So let’s just start by saying how much fun we (The Conleys) had playing the Foundation Room at the House of Blues, and how much we love every single one of you that came out! It was a great time!

I’ll walk you through the show experience. First, we arrive at the Best Western next door to the House of Blues in the late afternoon, check in, and get ready for the show. Now we booked this room for our super awesome after-party for all of you and the room itself did not disappoint. It had mediterranean style windows that opened outward over the pool, and had a not too shabby view of the night sky. It was great. Suffice to say it was the best Best Western ever. Best Best Western, that’s right.

Next, we arrive at the HOB Foundation Room and they have a huge (by our standards) room for the bands to hang out/get ready in. It was great! And it was stocked with water and booze and mixers. Just perfect. We were rolling like rockstars from the get-go.

Playing our set was so much fun! We could not ask for a better time or audience! Plus, everyone was so attentive, and the new songs got great responses. Our set:

-Christian’s Room
-Juggler
-Roar
-Hyper-Ballad
-Simply Irresistible
-Grow Me A Man
-Change Bag
-Movement On Both Sides
-Windowsills

So after the set I made sure everyone got their free special gift and told them all about the super killer after party. whoa, did I just skip over the awesome special gift? Now that the show’s passed I can tell you what it was: Handmade guitar string bracelets made out of official strings from official Conley guitars. That’s right, a Conley (Sarah) collected months worth of used strings and then made them into amazing guitar string bracelets just for you! They even come with a certificate of authenticity. If you missed the show, don’t worry we will have the bracelets for sale at all future Conley shows (or until the strings run out, or Sarah has no time to make them), or you can email or message us and we’ll send you one.

Finally we come to the after party at the Best Best Western, room 214 to be exact. Fun and merriment was had by all (lubricated by many friends in pourable bottles). Let’s leave the after party talk to that–got to maintain some mystery 😉

That’s all for now folks. Should have some videos/photos up from the show sometime soon, but then again I was supposed to do this blog 5 days ago.

Catch ya at the next show, Folk Yeah!

Merry Christmas and Folky Holidays to you all, The Conleys

ps. Folk Noir makes a great stocking stuffer!
