Hi Everyone. I’m here again to give some updates as things have taken a drastic turn and have gotten a bit crazy now. This Corona Virus has really screwed everything up for just about everyone. Businesses, schools and YES even my job is in jeopardy. We’re all dealing with stuff so I won’t go too much into detail about it so I’ll just talk about whats going on with the music for me.
My March 21st show at Gussy’s Bar has been cancelled and Run Dogs who were on tour has been sent back home to Spain. I have a NJ show for April 11th but its very much up in the air at this point. NJ has been given an 8:00pm curfew. That may or may not change so I’m not sure if I should even promote it. This as well goes to an April 18th show I have with Barbwire Dio Tribute Band. If its still a go I’ll make the announcement. I’m hoping things will subside because it seems April 25th is a go. The Chris Cyanide Bass Solo Project will be at the newly renovated OMEGA HOUSE to celebrate the birth of the Goddess of Death, Rachel Zyats! located at 290 Main rd, Riverhead (directly next to the Riverhead Hampton Coffee).. We’ll be performing with Charged For Battle and there will be a Big ass BONFIRE, Art Gallery, Film Screenings, Video Games(many to choose from), Food, Drinks, Birthday Cake, and more!!!
As of right now, this May 30th show is still on. I’ll be back at Revolution Bar and Music Hall in Amityville NY. This time I’ll be playing with Chief Big Way featuring Joey Belladonna vocalist of Anthrax! I actually was asked to perform with him last time he was in the area and had to decline due to being contacted about the show too last minute a few months ago. I’m happy to be included this time around and can’t wait to perform! The ticket link is posted below and of course I’m doing a special $10.00 deal each. Hit the link, follow the instruction (Its easy) and be sure to leave your name and which show you are purchasing tickets for so I can have them ready for you at the door the day of the show.
July 25th. The Chris Cyanide Bass Solo Project will be at Blackthorn 51 in Elmhurst Queens playing with Wrathchild Iron Maiden Tribute. I haven’t played at Blackthorn 51 in quite some time so it will be cool hopefully get back there. If all goes well, I’ll have a ticket link up for the show soon as well as some more updates so be on the look out for it.
I’m working on an August 15th date in Clifton NJ at a place called The Hideout which used to be the old Clash Bar. I have some bands confirmed but we’re still feeling things out due to the current situation. I’ll give some updates on that hopefully soon.
In the meantime I’ve been playing round with Facebook Live and doing some more videos at home. I figured If I can’t play out at gigs, this is the way to go. Most other bands already have been doing this but it seems I’ve been forced on to this bandwagon as well. I really wanted my live shows to speak for me and never wanted to be one of those Youtube guys but for now, it is what it is. So far I’ve done some Facebook Live videos of me jamming on my renditions of cover songs and I may film myself in Cyanide character playing a set this weekend to make up for the missed show. Kind of sucks I won’t have any of the Cyanide Crew present but I’ll do my best to entertain! Well….. thats it for now. Keep up with me on social media for the latest updates and please be careful out there.
