2 IN THE CHEST Heroes' Blood Release party feedback.


What went into the successful


HeroesBlood Experiance

Hey you awesome Meatbags. It started way back when I was a little guy back in the 70s when I was introduced to KISS. Ever since then, I wanted to have my own full concept live performance.


The trek down the road that brought us to March 18th at the 44 Sports grill and Nightlife was long and grueling.


When you have a dream, it is hard to find people dedicated enough to help 

you achieve that dream. It starts with finding people that are not prideful self-absorbed and try to change your lifelong dream. I have those people in this amazing family that have stood behind me and supported me every step of the way.


Along the way more and more people were guided onto the 2 IN THE CHEST path and I am forever grateful for all those people.


So many people believed in this dream along the way and although they are not with us, they were all vital members to get us to where we are now.


 We are not to the finish line yet, there are still so very many steps to take before we reach the goal.


Another thing people do not know, is that every member of 2  IN THE CHEST over the years are still very loved family members, and each and everyone one of them for the most part left the family on good terms.


The fans of, and new fans of 2 IN THE CHEST are so very special to the 2 IN THE CHEST family. This is why we grind day after day to make the next performance better than the last one. March 18th sent 2 IN THE CHEST launching foreword to the next goal.


We are a true modern day Partridge family as well as literally. It took two

years to put together the 3rd CD release performance.  The time I met Tim Landis, to the time he dove in and made it his life to join the mission and bring my vision to life, was the day my flame to reach the ultimate live show was reignited. With Tim as my Number 1 he straightened my path to start back down the road to reaching the finish line of the perfect audio visual performance that no one would ever forget.


Although we have come a long way, there are still several goals that have to be met and with my family 2 IN THE CHEST I know we will get it done.


One thing I want all you amazing people who believe in us and this incredible family to know is; it has never been about money, although it would be nice to achieve the national dream so many have; the payoff for all of us are the smiles we bring to all who attend our live performances. I live in a semi because next to caring for my kids; this band gets all my money. The show we just performed cost us just shy of 4 thousand dollars to put together. And we achieved the next step in the evolution of 2 IN THE CHEST.


We would like to thank everyone involved in this well-oiled machine behind this incredible release. When you come to a show and have a smile on your face we achieved our goal. But what many do not understand is, the years of preparation that went into this hour and fifteen minute event.

All the amazing people behind the scenes that made this show possible. Bryon  Mogul for setting aside many hours to make videos promoting the show, To the people that let us use the stage extensions, to Paul Watkins for audio video giving to all the people a video visual enhancing performance, to our wardrobe person Tonja Partridge who 

Made our outfits as well as run the Merch booth, to all the people running around during the show, TJ Boone for being my wardrobe tech and Bass Tech For Mary Ella and guitar tech for myself, Mady Landis and Dave Bigsby for loading and unloading the entire set staying with us for 17

hours to make this show a success, and getting everything ready for the curtain call, To Dave Williams for running his tail off making sure everything was on target before show start, and making sure everything is working properly. To all those that did their best to promote this event to give those who did attended; the best show we have ever done to date. To Page Mills although she had to go to work early in the morning; stayed to help us tear down and load the trailers. These people were the true heroes. THANK YOU!!!



Now that it is all over we can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Another thing

you do not know is that 1 hour and 15 mins on stage started at 9am and we did not leave until 4am. None of us could move by the end of the night, but all this work was well worth it.


Thank you to all the people that did come out to the show and shared the dream. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!


And to The band Addict3d my awesome brothers I love you.  Bryon Mogul and his awesome band. To the 44 and Nancy for allowing us to take over her venue to bring this event to the people. THANK YOU!!!



Oh we are not done yet

JOKER Jeremiah DeWitt you sir have never failed us you always bring the best out of us with your expert sound. THANK YOU!!!

Oh! Cannot forget Dru Tang who brought a light show for this performance that we never thought possible. THANK YOU !!! AND 

LAST BUT IN NO WAY LEAST.  Casey Weaver the engineer of Steampunk Audio Labs behind this incredible CD that we played almost in its entirety. This is our third Record in this awesome studio and will not be the last.


THANK YOU!!! To everyone that experienced the 2 IN THE CHEST Heroes’ Blood Release We hope you come to see us again, for the improved version of this performance. PEACE LOVE & 2 IN THE CHEST

2 IN THE CHEST Updates for all the metal meatbag fans in the dust bowl we call 2 IN THE CHEST


Hello all you amazing southern metal Meatbags. We just wanted to reach out to you all and let you know that even though things are crazy in the world right now, we are working hard on the new and improved 2 IN THE CHEST live show.

We have dedicated a great deal of time and money into this new show, so that you can separate from all the negativity that’s going on in this crazy world right now, and dive into over an hour of visual and audio entertainment.

This new Record has really set the bar high for a fourth record when that happens. But let’s get this one rolling before we get off track.

We have dedicated this record to the brave men and women that fought and died courageously at the Alamo. And the stage show will reflect that story to say the least.

We know that you guys want more from the world’s only rustic outlaw southern hard rock/metal band, so we are busting our tail to give you that awesome show you have come to expect from 2 IN THE CHEST.

The record will begin with a battle going on and through fiction and non-fictional stories, and we will lead you through a dynamic explosion through bouts of sadness, ear to ear laughter and happiness, anger and of course love and compassion for the characters in the stories.

The road to bring you all of this entertainment has been long and hard, but we are very confident that you will be very pleased, and hope that you will show your gratitude by purchasing the new record and attending one of our live performances.

The Reverend Blackmore Jackson McBride has been chomping at the bit to bring you all a live performance you will tell to your grandchildren. And we feel that he and the rest of that extremely loving family may have just achieved his dream of that very show.

We will be seeking people to join up with the Dead and help with the live show. They are definitely going to need it. There is a lot that goes into the set up execution of the performance and tear down of all the stage show after the performance.

If you are interested in being part of the Dust Crew there are many positions that need to be filled for these performances, please contact us.

We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts for standing by patiently waiting for this new release.
Be blessed each and every one of you. Peace Love and 2 IN THE CHEST
