I knew I’d write this eventually, though it has never been a statement I have looked forward to writing.
Music has been a very important part of my life for a very long time. I never did it to be a star, I did it because I loved it.
Over the course of ten years, we’ve grown, evolved, changed members time and time again…we moved beyond a simple band and became a part of something else, something bigger, never losing sight of the music we were making, never trying to be anythin...g but true.
We have shared the stage and many a drink with some of the finest musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, both locally and regionally.
In every incarnation and iteration, we were a family, all the way up to the very,, very bitter end.
It is with a heavy heart but a soul full of wonderful memories that I must announce Strawfoot, is no more.
We will treasure you as fans and friends for the rest of our lives, I will especially.
The music we made was merely a reflection of us, and you. Our lives, the lives we all live.
Do not mourn our end, please. Celebrate what we made. Maybe listen to it from time to time.
And remember we wouldn’t have been us, had there not been a you.
I love you all more than I may ever properly express.
--Rev. Dapper King (Marcus)
