REQUEST SETS AND OLD SCHOOL SHACK PARTIES!
Medeski Martin & Wood have announced the first details of their 20th anniversary plans for 2011. A statement from the band emailed to fans reads:
MMW Fans: Request your favorites! MMW's entire first set of their March tour will be comprised of song requests. Their second set will be a nod to the improvisational shack party days with special guests to be announced. Fans can make requests through the MMW Facebook page starting today, January 28th. Or email your top 3 song requests (in ranking order) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the city of the March tour date in the subject line. Song requests will be collected through February 9th.
Also, we will be running our daily trivia contest via MMW Facebook beginning February 1st @ 3PM EST. Be the first to answer the question correctly and win free tickets to an MMW March show and other giveaways.
In celebration of MMW's 20th anniversary milestone, John, Billy and Chris will hit the studio and record TWENTY new tracks. These tracks will be released monthly (DIGITAL-ONLY) until the end of the year. Stay tuned...
