New Songs

The word around the camp fire is. The band has just finished writing some new material. In addition to the new orginal songs. You can look forward to hearing some new versions of some older classics. Keeping to their roots. The new songs are picks that you might not expect. "We pick songs that speak to us. Even if we didnt write that song. We feel a personal connection to it." Aces and 8s starts off their 5th year as a band. Much like they have always have been. Muscians who love music....

The road of music,is paved with disappointments. Ever artist knows it to well.

Due to the shows over booking of artist,by the shows producers.
