Tinker’s Thanks!

WOW! What can I say about the TOTEM show last night at The Tinker’s Son. 3 hours, 24 songs, surrounded by family and the best of friends…and I think we were fortunate enough to convert a few folks and make some new ones. We couldn’t have imagined a night more special. Thank you all for coming out and I hope you had as much fun as we did. Special Thank You to Michelle Coles of The Tinker’s Son for her constant support.

What an amazing night to start 2014. Thank you all again. It means the world to us.

Album Progress / Broken Ballerina / Next Show Reminder

TOTEM has completed work on their upcoming, currently untitled, album to be released in 2014 through Hogtrophonic Records. Stay tuned for more information.

In true DIY fashion, we’ve built a new basement studio, “Broken Ballerina”. Gary has already been recording new demos, and they’re sounding fantastic. Don’t let this basement fool you… it packs quite a punch.

Lastly, we just want to post a friendly reminder that TOTEM will be playing a special acoustic show at The Tinker’s Son on Dave’s Birthday, January 10th 2014. It’s going to be a fantastic night full of surprises, so be sure to come wish Dave a happy birthday!
