The Accidentals' - March Madness and SXSW

Fresh from 19 performances at Folk Alliance International, The Accidentals have made their their way to that little old gig in Texas, SXSW. It will be the bands 4th and busiest yet. They kick the week off live on WMOT Radio, followed by the Kerrville Folk Festival Stage, Whole Foods rooftop, Austin City Limits and Sony’s “Lost in Music” stage.  Then they set their alarm for a Live From SXSW performance on KGSR Radio’s morning show.

It’s no wonder RAM has supplied the band with a 3500 Promaster Van for the tour. Nice call RAM. Nothing tests performance and reliability like the grind of a road tour - and no one’s had more band-van breakdowns than The Accidentals. Ad campaign?

Their cool new RAM Van may get the band to the show safe and in style, but Tak will be taking it from there. Sav and Katie’s P5DC-WB and P6NC Pro Series Taks have been their go-to acoustics for the last two years, and before that…it was Sav’s dad’s well played EF360SC that served as number 1 acoustic.

As if their March hasn’t been mad enough, just as SXSW winds up, Sav, Katie and Michael will fly to San Francisco for their final meeting with the US State Department’s Arts Staff to discuss The Accidentals representing the US abroad.  Hey State Dept, take it from Takamine and RAM… you won’t regret it.
