The Battle during a Sommer Breeze

It just so happens that three of my friends are having a performance all on the same day. There is something for everyone to enjoy in the Metro Atlanta Area on March 28th. This is an open invitation to become familar with a new breed of up and coming artists.

Long time friend Breeze stretches the bounds of Hip-Hop and will be having a Album Release House Party in Ellenwood, GA (3860 Busby Mill) at The Unrestricted Ent Studio from 6-9 pm. As he puts it, "This is a bbq and listening party so bring a dollar to purchase your copy of the album before iTunes, Walmart, Target, etc jack up the price. Bring as many friends as you'd like...".

Trey Hawkins/The Battle Of will be playing at the Daily Grind in Marietta from 8-11 pm. If you like listening to passionate and relatable lyrics over modern day anti-folk music, this is for you.

If Marietta is too far out for you, you can stay in Atlanta and see Sommer Melody at the Urban Grind Coffee Shop. If you're into having your R&B unplugged and listening to some of the most eclectic artist around then you should give this a shot. This will be from 7-10 pm.

There is no reason for anyone to be sitting in their homes tomorrow night. March Madness is exciting but I'm sure you'll watch the highlights on ESPN about a thousand times anyways. Go out! Experience and support your local scene.

Reunited...and it feels so good!

It took us a while but we finally got something we've been waiting to see. Our friend Ariel T. took a couple of pics of the band to and from our performance at Little Kings back in January, and we're putting a sample of them up. She was kind enough to also record a some video footage of us playing "Prophets". <----- link

We've awaited this moment for a while because our keyboardist and vocalist, Shane (The gentleman to the right of this picture), was taking his winter vacation from law school. It was good to have the full band back together. As soon as he graduates, the keys will become apart of the norm once again. Check out the video link.

"You Give Love a Bad Name"

Hello Ladies and Gents! My name is Maximus James Longfellow-Bentington and I will be your host for this post. As you know Trivial Design is the blog for all future Tendaberry post. You'll have a chance to see and hear about our music, but we will talk about various other topics such as our favorite bands, movie reviews, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon , and the list will go on and on.

Earlier we asked our friends on facebook what the actual name of the blog should be called. We heard a little bit of everything as a response. One of the best ones I read was from Mr. Parris saying "TendaberryJuice (new posts are freshly squeezed)". I don't think anyone could argue with that slogan. It pulled me right in at least. Longshire said "Tendaberry Crunch
(To Be the Man, You've Gotta Beat the Tendaberry)" I enjoyed this one as well because to the reference to Captain Crunch and Rick Flair (Wooooo!!!).

Here are some of the other suggestions:
Tendaberry Jam, Tendaberry Bush, Tendaberry Sqush, tendaberry sound, tendaberry mine, tendaberry sunset, tendaberry sky, Tendaberry coke, Tendaberry M.D., Tendaberry pit, TNDAB, Tendaberry lotion/cream, Tenda-pain, Tendaberry pie, Tendaberry shortcake and Tendaberry Smoothie

Thanks to our friends for creating such inventive names. These suggestions will probably show back up in the future.

Now go tell all you're friends you're friendly neighborhood Tendaberry has a blog now and if you have any advice, creative critiques, ideas you want to share, just let us know. Retro vid! *Jersey fist pump*
