The guys have some great shows heading your way for the month of March! After spending some time playing in Memphis, Avon Dale will head north for two shows, taking place back to back weekends. The first show will be Saturday March 14th (St. Patty’s Weekend), at Rock Island Brewing Company in Illinois. “It’s always a great time going back to the Quad Cities”, states McCarter, “not only did Al grow up there, but my Dad’s side of his family is there. Without a doubt, this place has Avon Dale roots.” This show will be just as fun as last summer, come out and celebrate! (Pictured Below)
After rocking out in Rock Island, the band will leave for St. Louis for their show at Firebird on Friday, March 20th. St. Louis will host the NCAA Wrestling National Championships and many of Avon Dale’s toughest fans will be in attendance. It will be the first time band member Conrad Polz returns to St. Louis since capturing his second All-American status in 2013. “It’s a different feeling than last time that’s for sure”, Polz says.
With heavy hearts, we regret to inform you that our original band member and acoustic guitarist, Matt McCarter, is leaving the band to pursue a teaching position abroad in China. We wish him the best of luck and will miss his positive energy on and off the stage; However, the band must play on.
We are saying goodbye to Matt the only way we know how, a rocking farewell dubbed “Mac’s Last Dance”. The boys, joined by Matt, are playing three shows in their most adored cities: Champaign, Chicago, and Memphis. Don’t miss out on the chance to see the original Avon Dale in all of its glory!
