Hello all... wanting to give you a heads up about Friday's show.


--This Friday, June 20th at the Ranch Bowl in Omaha, Nebraska. Playing with Mandown, 8th Wave, Anything But Joey (from KC), and Rubber Planet (from Denver). Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm. Tix $7. ALL AGES.

--This is not only going to be a GREAT night of music but is also an important show for GTO (as many of you have read about on our homepage) because the president of DEGY Entertainment, an international booking and management agency, is flying in from New York to see us play. We need your support!!!

--Also, we will be giving away 100 signed and numbered EP samplers featuring 3 new songs from our forthcoming album to the first 100 people through the door. Songs included on EP are "No Pressure," Long Live Rock And Roll," and "Make Love, Not War."

--And finally, we'll be raffling off a signed Fender Acoustic Guitar in the efforts of raising money for the Omaha Police Department's Victims Assistance Program as a way of showing our appreciation to them for recovering our equipment. Raffle tix are only one dollar (so ya better buy more than one!)


--Yes, believe or not, we've actually set a date for our CD release party. It is scheduled for Wednesday, November 26th, 2003 at Sokol Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska. Opening bands, times, tix prices, advance tix sales, etc., TBA.

CD will be in stores on Tuesday, November 25th.

--In advance of our CD release, GTO will be releasing a series of 3 Limited Edition EPs with three songs each. The cover designs will consist of one third of an image so that when all three are collected and put side by side the full image will be completed. Only 500 copies of each will be printed and only 100 of each signed and numbered.


  • Wednesday morning on the Big Party Show on 106.9 the City at 7:40am
  • Thursday morning on the Todd and Tyler Show on Z-92 at 9am
  • Friday morning on the Capone Show on 89.7 The River at 9am

Our recent shows in KS and MO went great and the new van drove like a champ. Be sure to check out our tourdates page on the site for upcoming shows including one with the Gin Blossoms at the Royal Grove in Lincoln on Tuesday, July 8th.


Again, our many thanks to all of you for your support, past, present and future!

Spread your wings and fly,
