Hey friends. Hope your summer has been swell so far. We have been continuing work on new tunes for our next release. It’s looking like it’s shaping up to be about 6 songs, with a bonus 6 acoustic versions of the same songs available to VIP’s. We are in the process of putting together a fundraiser where you can help make this all possible. More details to come soon. In the meantime, check out another live demo version of one of the new tunes titled “Oh Please”. Copy and paste this link: https://soundcloud.com/michaelgrossmusic/oh-please-live-demo That’s all for now. Stay cool!
Happy July everybody. In honor of America’s birthday, the band will be performing a special and FREE show this month on July 17th at the Draper Amphitheater in Draper, UT. This is a community event that is open to all ages. The Statuettes will perform at 8pm, and will then be followed by a screening of The Lego Movie. Yes, The Lego Movie. I honestly don’t see how you could lose here. These hot summer nights are about to get a little hotter. Bring your family, bring your friends, and bring a gun. Well…maybe not the gun.
Draper Amphitheater (Draper, Utah)
July 17th @ 8pm
FREE SHOW followed by The Lego Movie
The band has also been continuing their work on new songs, and hope to start recording them late this summer, or early this fall. Here is a link to a live demo of one of the new songs: https://soundcloud.com/michaelgrossmusic/sooner-or-later-demo
Hope to see you at the show! Cheers!
Hey all, summer is kicking off and we couldn’t be happier. Lot’s of cool stuff coming up in the coming months including A NEW RECORD. We will be busy the rest of June hashing out the new songs and prepping them for recording later in the summer. We may need your help to help make this happen, so we will keep you posted on how you can help if you so choose. After all, we are all in this together right? Maybe? You get the idea. At any rate, have a fun summer, and stay cool.
Hi. We’ve been working on some new songs, and we hope to play them for you sometime soon. We like ‘em, but then again we’re the band, so I guess it doesn’t really count. We are thinking about releasing an EP or something soon. It’s the least we could do I suppose. If you’ve been meaning to catch us live, we will be performing with some other locals on June 1st at The Urban Lounge in Salt Lake City. You should come. I mean it. We also uploaded a new YouTube video on our YouTube channel about our last rehearsal in Jimmy’s jewelry store. It contains a performance by three of us of one of our new songs. That’s a lot of “of’s”. You can check it out here: www.youtube.com/mgstatuettes
Have a good month!
Hi. It’s April. We had a really fun show with Miniature Tigers on the first day of this month in Salt Lake City. If you haven’t heard of them before, head on over to google and type in their name. It could change things for you. If you missed it, you can catch us again soon. We promise. Lastly, we’ve also added a few new photo’s from the Miniature Tigers show in our “photo’s” section of the website. Give er’ a look! Stay real.
Hi. Thanks for being here. We hope we don’t let you down. We’ve got some pretty cool shows coming up the next couple of months, so why don’t you head on over to our “shows” section and see what it’s all about. In the meantime, we are rehearsing and writing a couple of new songs for you to listen to. You might like them. Stay informed!
Happy New Year everyone! As a new year begins, we look forward to making some new music, playing more shows, and of course being your pert-time lover. Thank you to all who have supported us in 2013. We hope you will stick with us 2014 also. We should have some shows scheduled soon, so make sure to check back often. In the meantime you can check out this live performance of our song “Crystal Ball” at Salt Lake City’s EVE celebration on New Years Eve:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjFfAt0xspI&list=UUreKpHsQjHN3kqswXl_dKJQ&feature=c4-overview
Thanks to Robert Markle for filling in on bass for us at this performance. Welp…see ya later!
Howdy. We’ve Got some cool stuff for you this month. First…we recorded a live performance video about a year ago in which we performed our entire Sunset Beach album. It’s taken longer to edit than expected, but we do have 4 of the songs complete and available for viewing. Check it out at www.youtube.com/mgstatuettes
Secondly…we will be performing at Salt Lake City’s EVE celebration on New Years Eve at The Salt Palace. We will be on the X-96 “Stage Ablaze” stage opening for Small Pools, and are scheduled to go on around 9:30pm. Tickets for this 3-day event are available at www.eveslc.com
Hi. Thanks for being you. In case you missed the announcement, we are now simply called “The Statuettes”. Trust me, it’s better this way. We have been busy rehearsing some old songs, and some new songs, and hope to play them for you soon. Check our “shows” section to see where and when we will be playing. New shows pop up all the time, so stay informed. In the meantime…Happy November!
Hey everybody, Happy Autumn! Ya know, the leaves aren’t the only things that are changing around here. We have decided to make a slight change in our band name as well. Instead of Michael Gross and the Statuettes, we will now simply be known as “The Statuettes.” The original name made sense in the beginning since we were playing songs off of Michael’s solo record, but we believe we have evolved since then, and let’s face it, it was a mouthful to say. Hopefully the new change will be easier to remember. Other than that, things are pretty much business as usual. Check back regularly for upcoming shows and other fun stuff.
