Ultraviolet Hippopotamus Hippoween 2014

Hippoween 2014From UVHippoMusic.com
“After our shows on Halloween night and the first weekend of December, we will be taking our first break ever from touring and performing on the stage. In case you missed our announcement a few months back, we will taking an indefinite break starting this winter. We have no time table in mind or determined length of a break, but will definitely be making a return when we are ready. With that in mind, these three shows will be the last times to catch us for a while.

Halloween night we will be making our first appearance at The State Theatre in Kalamazoo, MI. Joining us on the stage for the night will be a horn section led by Funktion’s Terrance Massey. Opening up the show will be the fellow Grand Rapids folk band, The Crane Wives. Also entertaining the crowd for a while will be the most rocking blues band we’ve ever played with, Andy Frasco and the U.N. from Los Angelas, CA. Many of our fans have been discussing and planning on dressing up as a Hippo song or a theme from one of our songs. We fully endorse and encourage our all people attending this show to follow suit since this is totally awesome. If you don’t want to dress up as a UV Hippo theme, just dress up anyways, it is Halloween night!

The first weekend of December we are playing Friday night in Grand Rapids at The Intersection and Indianapolis at The Vogue the following day. Both nights will be An Evening with meaning everyone that attends will be getting three full sets of Hippo each night! Both of these cities and both of these shows mean a lot to us. It is the culmination of 10 years of non stop work and 6 years of non stop touring. We would love to see all of your beautiful faces at both of them dancing in front of us. Make a weekend of it!”
