NATALIE WOULDN'T: SKA News

Natalie Wouldnt in Hollywood - January 28, 2008

So we made it home alive from Hollywood. What a great show. We really had a ball and saw some great bands that we shared the stage with. We got to meet some really great new people.

So lunching in Hollywood is interesting to say the least. Leaving the Coffee Bean no other than Elmo and Darth Vader. Wonder what they talk about at lunch?

Kevin, Rick, and Shawn outside the knitting factory. We wanted to check out the place in daylight. Very cool club and just across the street from our Hotel how convenient.



Hollywood Blvd has many shops one that we really liked was the store with every shoe you can thank of if you are a pole dancer. These were my favorites.




At the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel as part of the turn down services you are given a prescription bottle filled with M&M's Shawn overdosed but seemed to be ok the next morning.





Richard and I working the Merch table selling our goods at the Knitting Factory.
We really enjoyed ourselves and would do it again in a heart beat. Want to thank Buck from the Toasters and all his band members for letting us share gear as well as the guys from RiceRokit.
Thanks for reading our blog

3 Floors of SKA - January 14, 2008

New York City ska legends, The Toasters, are taking over the entire Knitting Factory in Hollywood on Jan. 25th!
OK this is going to be one amazing show. If you happen to be in LA on the 25th of Jan you will want to get to the Knitting Factory for the 3 floors of SKA put on by megalith records and the Toasters.
We are very excited to be playing this show. It is just what Natalie Wouldn't is all about. To be able to play with the Toasters and Buck O Nine and, Rice Rokit is a dream come true.

Platinum Dick. - January 14, 2008

Yes it is true Natalie Wouldn't has now been completed. We would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the newest member of Natalie Wouldn't Richard AKA "Platinum Dick. "

Richard dazzled us with his Keyboard prowess along with his great vocals. He adds a much needed layer to our sound. You may know him as the axe slinging keyboard player for the very popular Plaintiffs. We were lucky enough to share this great musician with the gang in the plaintiffs.

Richard pulls double duty and does it well. Come see Richard at one of our gigs and show him the Natalie Wouldn't Fan love if you would be so kind.

As always we love you all, and we keep going because you keep asking for it.


Thanks the management. :)

Playing with the Toastes and More - August 9, 2007

Well it is time again to post and let you all know what we are up to. We are very excited about some of our upcoming shows. We again are going to be playing with one of our very favorite bands the Toastes. You also have to mention the great Diablotones as well. We will not be playing just one nite with the Toasters but two. Yes Sept 19th we will be sharing the stage with Buck and the boys in Oregon at the Hawthorne Theatre, then the following evening on the 20th of Sept we will be with the Toasters again at Studio Seven. What a great two nights of ska. Rick, Kevin, Shawn and I are really enjoying this amazing year we have been having as a band. From the release of our CD SKA SOUL ROCK & ROLL , to our tour in London with the gang from Second Time Lucky, it has just been way to much fun. Now we are closing out this year with a show at the Famous Hemp Fest in Seattle on August 18th on the Seeley Stage and then the shows with the Toasters in Sept. In Jan 08 we will start off with a bang by playing 3 floors of SKA at the infamous Knitting Factory in Hollywood.

We love our fans and hope that you continue to come out and support us. We promise to have a new CD out soon with some new songs the were inspired while we were in London. Cheers for now and we sill see you all soon.

Mike the Drummer.

Home From London - August 7, 2007

Ok it has been a while since we last posted and we apologize. We just returned from an amazing tour in England. Shawn, Mike, Rick, Kevin, and Dave took off on July 9th and headed for London. WE have to mention a few people here because if it wasn't for 2nd Time Lucky this tour wouldn't of happened. so Drew, Cat, Scuff, Andy, John, Rob, Dan thank you. You guys and gals are fantastic. Then we have to say Dave it wouldn't have been the same without you, thanks for getting us beers, taking pic, and everything else you did for us.

Holly you were great for sporting us a great Flat while we were in London. It was fun for us and no torture at all.

Others, Ella, Robyn, Liz and I'm sure I'm missing others but we want to thank all of you for making this an amazing trip.

We started out playing a great show in Soho at the St Moritz club for Gaz rocking blues show. This show was amazing click here to see some photos of that show. Gaz

We then did a bit of site seeing in London then headed for Reading. This show was at the Purple Turtle. I have to say that we meet some great people there. Neil and Nell were awesome very fun people. Even thought it was raining we still enjoyed pints of Stella into the wee hours of the morning. We finally got to our hotel around 5:00 AM.

Next day we headed South to Brighton. If you haven't been to Brighton your missing out. Brighton is a very cool coastal town. This is also the home of the band 2nd Time Lucky and a great venue called the Concorde 2. Our show in Brighton was awesome and again we meet some great people.

PS Rick still has some small bruises form the rock rolling with the boys from Twice the Size. You guys were great.

So to everyone we want to say thankyou and we can't wait to come back.

Mike the drummer

CD Baby - May 18, 2007

We just wanted to thank CD Baby. This company rocks. It is amazing what they are doing for independent musicians everywhere. Keep up the good work and you have our vote any day of the week.

If you are an up-and-coming musician you cannot afford to not check out CDbaby.net. It is a must.

Hugs and kisses CD Baby.

25th Year for the Toasters - May 11, 2007

Toasters!
A toast to the Toasters!

They have been dubbed “Pioneers of Ska,” the “Miles Davis of Ska” and the “Ramones of Ska.” The Toasters could also be called the hardest-working ska band in the world. (with the exception of Natalie Wouldn't, well second hardest working band) Tour plans for 2007 started with seven weeks in Europe (with Go Jimmy Go) and continued in April with six weeks in the U.S. (with the Briggs). Lets hope they are back in Seattle soon and we do another great SKA show.

We love these guys and always love playing with them when ever we get a chance

Websites - May 10, 2007

Ok so we are working on a new site. Let us know what you like and what you don't like. Some have asked for more photos of Aaron the band eye candy so we will see what we can do.

On I-Tunes - May 9, 2007
