Hello everyone! You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet in And Beyond-land. We may have kept quiet but we can assure you that we've been busy and we're ready to share some BIG news with you!
First of all, we have a new member joining the band! Please welcome Mark Hofstetter on keyboards, guitar and vocals! Mark is a total pro and one heck of a nice guy. We can’t wait for you all to get to know him, he’s a great fit for this band.
Next (as if a major lineup change isn’t enough news to digest) we’ve got an even bigger announcement to make: AND BEYOND is changing to ANTHEM!
I know, we’re kinda shocked too!!!
As much as we enjoy playing music for you all & having a good time, we have to acknowledge that there were serious issues going on behind the scenes that had intensified over the last year. We are changing the name to get us “beyond” (see what we did there?) all of those issues and give us a fresh start. Besides that, the original name was a bit of a grammatical nightmare and a bit difficult to enunciate. We can’t tell you how many times someone would say “And Beyond” and people would hear it as Ambien. You know, like the sleeping medication? We definitely DON’T want that! Haha! And honestly, the old name had a subtle tie to the name of our former band. This change is meant to be a clean break from the past so we can move on in a positive direction. We will continue to bring you the same great music & same great time you’ve come to expect from us over the years, no matter what name you’ve come to know us by.
Thank you all so much for sticking with us through the difficult time, it’s onward & upward as...
ANTHEM classic rock and beyond!
