Dear Fans,

As you know, our lead singer, guitarist, and trumpet player, Brendan McGinn, entered medical school in the fall of 2005. We continued to play Addison Groove Project (AGP) shows when it was possible for him to do so. Unfortunately, Brendan will be unable to play any more shows after this spring and we have decided it is appropriate to call these upcoming dates our "Farewell Shows." While it may be possible that we will play again someday, we don't believe this will happen in the foreseeable future.

We will be celebrating the release of a brand new album, Waiting Room, that was recorded over the last few years. We think it is our best studio album yet. The upcoming shows also mark our ten year anniversary of being a band!

As for the rest of us, we have been recording new music for Skinjer which features Ben, Rob, Dave, and Andrew of AGP and have been working on other solo projects. We will make announcements on and to the AGP mailing list to let you know of any shows that we will be doing with other bands.

We can't thank all of you enough for making our childhood dreams come true. We have hundreds of amazing memories from AGP that we will cherish forever.

AGP - Dave, Ben, Andrew, Rob, & Brendan

The dates of the final four shows are:
02.24 | Higher Ground | So. Burlington, VT
03.01 | Mercury Lounge | NYC
03.02 | Revolution Hall | Troy, NY
03.03 | Paradise Rock Club | Boston, MA

Waiting Room, AGP's third studio album, was several years in the making. All of the instruments were recorded separately via overdubbing making it the 'anti-live' album. The song selection features mostly vocal songs that were written between 2002 and 2004.

Work on the album began in New York City in 2004 while AGP was touring heavily. It was picked up by Pete Carini in the spring of 2005 and recording was finished at the Barn in Essex, VT over the following six months. Mixing was done over the course of the following year with the album finally being mastered in NYC in the fall of 2006. Special guest Dave Grippo adds baritone sax on a few tracks.

They should pick up another dude and keep the name and songs....tons of bands have lost and gained members without having to change the name
