VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE AVB TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND FANS:
Well dear friends, all good things must come to an end, and the end has come for the old AVB. We've had quite an amazing 15 year run, which is almost unheard of for bands at our level, and we're extremely proud of it. First and foremost, Gary, Moike, and myself would like to thank every single one of you who ever took a weekend, planned a vacation up north, or took any time to come and see us play. I always say "we don't have 'groupies' or whatever, we have 'friends'".
We plan on finishing out all of our commitments thru May/July, with a few possible stragglers at the end of the summer. Mostly as a thank you to all the bar owners, businesses, and true fans who have been so good to us over the years. Keep an eye on the schedule, as we may be doing a few "farewell" shows at the places we usually play. We figured it was time to announce it, if anything so anyone who has enjoyed us over the years can come out and party with us one more time.
This split is completely amicable. The three of us are family and love each other very much. We're shared moments onstage, and with all of you, that few people ever get to experience. As many of you know, we were never your typical "bar band". We've had the pleasure of playing many of your personal private events, weddings, and even some places bands don't usually play, and we only hope that we helped create some good and long lasting memories for y'all. And most importantly, made you forget about your troubles for a few hours. If we did that, we know we can end this thing very proudly.
Thank you with all our hearts, and we hope to see y'all soon.
-See y'all up at Boyne Highlands for Zoo-de-Mac FRI MAY 15 from 9-1!
Thanx to everyone who have been packing these final gigs. We've added a few shows as a huge thanks to everyone. Make sure to check the schedule!
'Til we meet again, AV
