Newsy-type News

Firstly, check out recordings of our show at the Urban Garden Center, as part of the Make Music NY festival, here.

Secondly, this Saturday we will be headed to the studio to track several of our original THP tunes!  We're very excited.  Some bright, shiny studio recordings will make nice counterparts to the work horse live recordings we're so fond of.  Standby!

It's The Day Of The Show, Y'all!

Can you believe, in all the shows that we've played, that I've never thought to use that line before?  Probably a good thing.

But it is the day of the show!  Well, since this is the Make Music NY festival, it's actually the day of 1,500 shows, but you get the idea.  And we'd love to see you at ours.  We're playing a full electric set at the Urban Garden Center at 116th St. and Park Ave, starting at 3p.

In all likelihood, it will go better than this.  (Though hasn't every musician been there?)

Review Our Review

A friend of the band took to her music site to share some very nice thoughts about what it's like to see THP live, this time at our recent show at Desmond's Tavern.  We're very happy that she had a good time and dug the tunes.  Making our listeners happy is what we're all about!

Video Of A Bad Sign

As a special treat, we have video of our version of the classic blues tune, "Born Under a Bad Sign," from our show at Desmond's Tavern on Thursday.  This was Jasmin's first show singing with us and it went oh, so well.  Much thanks to all those who came out and stuck around through the witching hour--magic did indeed happen.

See you at the next one, the Make Music NY Festival on June 21st, where we'll be performing outside at the Urban Garden Center on 116th and Park Ave starting at 3pm.

Desmond's Tavern

In anticipation of hopping back in the studio to record a new EP, The Hurt Project will be premiering three new songs in a show at Desmond's Tavern (Park Ave. and 30th St.)!

We're doing a late night set, starting at 11p on Thursday, May 22nd.  Something about the late night thing just feels...jazzier, doesn't it?  We think so.

No cover, and in a great neighborhood in Manhattan!

Festively Making Music in NY

We are pleased as punch to announce that we will be included as part of the city-wide Make Music New York Festival, which Metro New York calls “the largest music event ever to grace Gotham.”  Nothing says summer like cranking some amplifiers up a bit at an outside space on a nice day!

Our set happens at the lovely Urban Garden Center at 116th St. and Park Ave.  Swing by (and chances are you'll be able to hear us even if you're really just swinging by) at 3p on June 21st and catch some sunny blues!

Another Big Announcement

The site has been so quiet lately that I have accidentally let one of our bigger band events slip by unremarked.  I will herein remedy!  To wit:

We would like to welcome Michael "The Bull" LoBue to the band!  While the bulk of his time with THP will be spent blowing fire through the harmonica, Bull has plenty else on offer: his talents run the gamut from vocalist, guitarist, drummer, and on and on.  Most importantly, he's a life-long blues lover who knows the music, its history and heart, inside and out.  Having his input during our songwriting sessions and his energy driving us onstage are both already bearing fruit.  (If we were forced to pick a fruit, it seems logical to visualize blueberries, right?)

2014 is looking pretty durned bright.
