Have Drummer, Will Rock!!

WE FINALLY DID IT!!! Worked out the sordid details and locked in with a new drummer. We are pleased to introduce the latest addition to Nice Apathy – MASON WENDL!!!

It took almost a year, but honestly, finding the right combination of mad skills, grit, gravitas, and someone who will put up with Kevin’s shit is not easy.Thanks to all the drummers who came out and jammed with us or expressed interest along the way. We met some groovy folks and learned a lot about ourselves and what Nice Apathy is about in the process. Thank you one and all!

After working with Mason for the last few months we’re more fired up than ever and will be announcing show dates soon. Rock on brothers and sisters!!!

 

2016 Missing Post

It would appear that at some point we lost a couple of posts from the last couple years. With no good way to recover those, I will instead repost the posts, separated by year.

Greetings Programs

So whats been happening? We’ve had a couple of great shows over the cold months. We trekked to Hamtramck to play the legendary Paychecks and had a great time there. We also recently had an amazing off the hook show at the Roadhouse in Jackson, where we got to share the stage with some great bands including Perfectly Damaged, and once again with our friends in the always awesome Darling Down. We’ve met some really cool people at the recent shows, and we’ve had a great time in the process!

In the middle of the shows dates, we also took our usual few weeks break from the gigs for the holidays to spend time with our families, and recharge our creative juices, and were ready for the coming year! I’m happy to report that if you come out and see us at our shows, you’ll likely hear some new music from us sprinkled in from time to time as we flesh them out.

Nice Apathy with Sponge and Bombdogs at Underground - March 2015And speaking of shows, holy moly have you heard about this show yet?!? I have such a huge amount of respect for Sponge, so I consider it a great honor to be given the opportunity to support their show. I’ve seen these guys live and I was blown away with their talent and their energy, and now I get to share a stage with them. How crazy and totally cool is that? Tickets are available from any of the Nice Apathy crew, and online, so come on out and see us with Sponge on March 12th. Its a rare intimate setting for a band of their caliber and the tickets may very well sell out, so get them early if you can.

Finally, well be kicking up the booking machine again so you should see more shows popping up in the near future. If you like what were doing and like what you hear, the best way to help us out is to sign up for our newsletter, and spread the word. Please share us with your friends and we promise well keep working hard to make good music for your mind and your body, and good times for your soul and your spirit. Were looking forward to seeing your faces out there in what is sure to be another fun year, so well see you on the road!

Nice Apathy @ Jersey’s

Nice-Apathy-at-Jerseys-062015

We had a great time at the show last night, thanks to Jersey’s Tavern for having us out. Thanks to the bands that came out and jammed with us: H.R. Rustica, The Complication, and Darling Down. All of the bands put on a great show and everyone had a fun night for sure.

Special thanks to Ryan and Darling Down for putting the show together and inviting us, and thanks to all of the our friends that came out to support us, and the new friends we made. If you haven’t already, it would be awesome if you could check out the new album, and we look forward to seeing you on the road again soon. We hope you had as much fun as we did Cheers!

EDIT:   As a quick follow up to this one, big thanks also to Erich Morse for coming to the show a couple weeks ago, snapping some photos and posting them in the National Rock Review, and unexpectedly providing some stage lighting support.

It’s Done !!

225x225-albumcoverThe self-titled debut Nice Apathy album is now available at iTunes, and most of the other usual digital sources. If you like what you hear and you’d like to support the band, the best way is to nab a copy, leave a review, and spread the word. We also have physical CDs that will be available at our shows or directly from us.

Very special thanks goes out to Andy Patalan for his amazing work engineering and producing this album, and lending us his talents on a few tracks. What an outstanding guy he is, with so much talent and an amazing ear for music! And thanks to all of the others that held us up, supported us, fed us, jammed with us, and otherwise encouraged us to get this album done and out to the public.

Now that ‘the work’ is done on that, we should be able to refocus on getting out there to see you all more often.  If you’d like to keep up on all things Nice Apathy, please like us on Facebook and sign up for our newsletter for the inside scoop.  Thank you so much for listening, and we’ll see you on the road!!

Nice Apathy Summer Update

Phlio Kev Andy Summer 2014

Hello to all of our friends old and new! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here but I hope the news I have to give you now was worth the wait.

So if you’ve been following us on Facebook (no?!? go go go!), then you know we’ve been spending a bit of time with our producer extraordinaire and good friend Andy over at the Loft.  That is starting to pay off and I am happy to announce that we have released a couple of songs from our album coming out this winter. The two songs here hopefully give you an idea of the wide spectrum of things we’ll have for you on the full album. We’re having a great time with it and I sincerely hope that comes out in the music and that it is able to find it’s way onto your playlists when the album is released.

So what’s ahead for the Apathy crew? Well in addition to finishing the album, we’re going to try to throw in a couple gigs to help us stay in touch with all of you while we’re working in the studio. Once the album is done, the plan is to start adding more shows to get out there and spend even more time with you!!

So sign up for our mailing list, and keep an eye on our website and Facebook for more news and events from us because based on our plans, things will start to get more fun moving forward! Now without further ado, enjoy the music!

Nice Apathy Out West

camperWe’ve been a little quiet while we work on lining some things up for this year, so we owe you at least something for still sticking with us I’d say! We record just about every jam we do so I wonder if you’d be interested in hearing some of the ‘less prepared’ things that come about on a jam night. This is what happens when Nice Apathy goofs off and ad libs a little. It should be good for a chuckle at least so I hope you get a kick out of it.

If you like this kind of thing and want to hear more, let us know. Perhaps we could make it a monthly or every other month kind of thing. If you don’t like it and think we shouldn’t release unrefined silliness, well let us know that too!

Language warning, not for the easily offended. We are a rock band after all 😉

I give you ‘Out West’, enjoy!

Nice Apathy Winter Update

WinterHeader2Hello everyone and welcome to the turn of the new year! It’s a bit late but I still wanted to get a winter update out as promised.

2013 was a good year for Nice Apathy. After quite a bit of time and effort put in to prep, we felt it was time to step out, and step out we did with a few web releases and some gigs the last half of the year. We got to see a lot of our friends out there and got to spend some time and share some music. The shows at Small’s were great, Pinestock was a blast, the St John’s Auto celebration was a long night of crazy musical goodness, just to name a few highlights but really, all of the gigs this year were fantastic! The shows went great, we got to meet a lot of new people, everyone had a good time and I really feel like we’re on the right track.

We have some lofty goals for 2014, and while I’m not ready to spill any beans just yet, I would just ask that you all continue to stick with us because we do have a lot of good things on the list for the coming year. I can at least say with certainty that there will be more music for you to hear, more good times, and well… more Nice Apathy! We love what we’re doing and we have no plans of slowing down.

So for the coming year I say that if you keep finding good in the music, we’ll keep making it for you. That’s how we roll! I hope your holiday season was nothing short of awesome, and I look forward to seeing you all in 2014!

Nice Apathy Fall Update

NASmallsAugPostGreetings everyone, it’s time for another update from the Nice Apathy crew. The summer shows went off without a hitch and we had a blast playing them! The St John’s after party was a very long night of great jams and we even brought up some special guests for a few tunes. The Small’s show was also a blast and the crowd at the event was nothing short of amazing. For me, I feed off of the crowd and almost look at it as a symbiotic exchange of energy at these gigs. When the crowd is great, the show is that much greater, so props to all the folks that came out that night and thank you very much for the boost to help me do the best I can for you. I hope you all had as great a time as we did! If you haven’t already done so, feel free to peruse the NA facebook page for bonus pics and highlights of these latest shows. Also please give it a like and share it with your friends, it really helps us out!

Nice Apathy, Live @ Smalls October 4 2013. We hope to see you there!

Nice Apathy, Live @ Smalls October 4 2013. We hope to see you there!

Small’s is a fantastic venue for seeing live shows and everyone was very cool there, so I’m very happy to announce that we have another show booked there early next month. Again we need to see as many of you there as possible so please mark it on your calendars and join us. You can buy tickets directly from any of us, or you can buy the tickets online at our Afton ticketing page. Also again, keep an eye on our facebook page where I’ll be posting a code for a pretty significant discount on the tickets within the next few days. So plan early and use the code to save a few bucks.

I think that should do it for now. Head on over to the gallery tab for some pics of the show, and keep an eye on the music tab… I have a strong suspicion that something new might pop up there in the next week or two ;). Thanks again to everyone who has come out to hang with us and share the music, and I hope to see you and all of your friends at the gigs to come. Take care!
