December 2018

HEY!!

I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving! I've got a lot of great things to share with you so I'll get right to it!

THE OUTCOME
For those of you who have only seen my solo acoustic performances, you should definitely come check out the band I've been a part of for over 3 years now. We've been working so hard and it is really showing in our performances. We will be releasing a single we've been working very hard on for quite a while with an amazing producer. I'll be sure to share details with you as soon as I have them! We have some studio time booked in December to get some nice promo videos. I'll be sure to share.

On Friday, November, 30th (THIS FRIDAY) we will be performing at Pistol Pete's Brew & Cue in Auburn, CA with special guest, James Perry. Music starts at 9:30 PM.

SOLO SHOWS
I'll be performing solo at the following venues this month:

On Thursday, December 13th, I will be performing as part of the Holiday Showcase for Sophie's Place. Sophie's Place is located inside the Sutter Children's Hospital in Downtown Sacramento. I have been fortunate enough to perform for these children who are extremely sick and incredibly sweet. It is extremely gratifying to see these children's spirits uplifted even for just a brief moment in such a dreary place. It is a very humbling experience.

On Friday, December 21st, I will be performing at Crooked Lane Brewing Company in Auburn, CA. Music goes from 7-9 PM. FREE. And the beer is AMAZING!

On Saturday, December 22nd, I'm back at one of my all-time favorite venues, House of Oliver, in Roseville, CA. Music goes from 6-10 PM. FREE. (This place gets packed quick, it is wise to make a reservation if you'd like a table).

On New Year's Eve I am once again performing the early show at Hyatt Regency Sacramento. I'll be performing from 4-8 PM. Please join me and we'll ring in 2019 together!!

Please know how much I appreciate your amazing support! I can honestly say that it would be 50 times harder to do what I've been doing without the help and support of amazing people like yourself. Thank you!!

P.p.s. From the Hedges Family to yours, please have a safe and wonderful Holiday Season and a Fantastic New Year!! I've got a good feeling about 2019.

P.p.p.s. The Eagles kinda stink...but so does the rest of the NFC East...you never now when a team can get hot and make a run though. #SuperBowlChamps

I hope you are doing great! I don't have many public shows this month, but the ones I do have are awesome!! 

SOLO SHOWS
On Saturday, November 3rd, I will be performing at Crooked Lane Brewing Co. in Auburn, CA.  7-9 PM. FREE!

On Saturday, November 24th, I will be performing at House of Oliver in Roseville, CA. 7-11 PM. FREE! 

Side Note: In March of 2017, I released "Slightly South of Stormy Clouds" in an unconventional way. I produced a movie consisting of individual videos from all the tracks on the album. I then rented out a movie theater and sold out the event! For those that were not able to make it, or those that were there and would like to watch the movie again, please click HERE!

Also, if you dig my music, please add me to your Spotify playlists HERE!

THE OUTCOME
For those of you that have only seen me perform in a solo situation, I strongly advise you to come hear my band, The Outcome, at some point. We have been working so hard recently recording, honing our craft, and perfecting our sound as a unit. We've got some really exciting things on the horizon that I can't wait to tell you about!! At the moment we are having our newest single being mixed by the same guy who has done work for Aerosmith, Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi, and Michael Buble. Yes...we take this seriously.

Our next show is on Friday November 16th at the Torch Club in Sacramento, CA. We will be performing during the No Cover Happy Hour from 5:30-7:30 PM! Also, if you attend this show, please stick around for the evening show as Katie Knipp, a local bluesy singer-songwriter, will be releasing her new album "Take it With You"! 

Thank you once again for your amazing support! You are awesome!

P.s. Halloween was a blast this year! Liam and Mason dressed up as Georgie and Pennywise the Clown from Stephen King's feel-good novel, "It"!!

           

P.p.s. So...we bought Liam a little training potty because it's getting close to that time. As soon as it was put together, he immediately sat down on the potty and imitated a "grunt" of some fashion...I have no idea where he might have picked it up from, but it sure was amusing.

P.p.p.s. Adam Sandler's 100% Fresh had me 100% in tears at one point...If you have ever liked his old-school comedy (example: They're all Gonna Laugh at You album), this one is worth a watch.

P.p.p.p.s. As November is upon us, it is totally easy and understandable to get wrapped up in our day to day lives. With that said, I'd just like to take a moment and reflect on how thankful I am for everything and everyone in my life, including you!! These things are so easy to take for granted. Please have a happy and safe Thanksgiving surrounded by loved ones!

P.p.p.p.p.s. Davita and I are day 11 of a 30-day food detox/eating plan. I have never eaten so much spinach or hard boiled eggs in my life! It's all worth it in the end, right??

October 2018

Hey There! I hope you are doing great! I have some awesome solo shows this month at some of my all-time favorite venues, including: Friday - 10/5 @ House of Oliver - 7 PM Tuesday - 10/23 @ The Torch Club - 5:30 PM Thursday - 10/25 @ Fat City Bar and Cafe - 5:30 PM Saturday - 11/3 @ Crooked Lane Brewing Co. - 7 PM The Outcome Update We have a lot of exciting things coming up, including our newest single release! It is in the mixing stage now and we're currently planning our release event (I'll keep you posted)! We've been working really hard on this project and can't wait to share it with you! Also, we currently had an article written about us in the Sacramento News & Review!! Click HERE (https://www.newsreview.com/sacramento/conclusion-fusion/content?oid=27103587) to read this bad boy in its entirety! Our next show is at The Torch Club on November 16th from 5:30-7:30 PM. Thank you for your continued amazing support! If you come out to one of my shows in the near future, please come say hello! Quinn www.quinnhedges.com P.s. I'm extremely proud to announce that on August 23rd, my son Mason Livingston Hedges was born. Baby and Mamma Hedges are both doing great and Liam loves, "Baaaayby" (as he refers to him in his very high-pitched toddler voice). Below is the look that he gives me all the time; he's already questioning my parenting skills... P.p.s. Are there any songs that you would like to hear me perform or cover at my solo shows? If so, please shoot me an email with your request! P.p.p.s. In case anyone was wondering...it's not easy taking care of an infant and a 2-year old. I have a weak stomach and we now have double the diapers...


August & September 2018

Hey! I hope you are doing great! With the expected birth of my new son or daughter (yes, it's still a surprise), I had not planned on performing this month; however, I was recently asked to perform a solo opening set for Tyrone Wells (http://www.tyronewells.com/) this Saturday (8/25) at the Sofia Tsakopoulos Center for the Arts in Sacramento! Doors open 6:30 PM and tickets are on sale HERE (http://musicatthesofia.com/) . For the Facebook Event Page, click HERE (https://www.facebook.com/events/426209907895601/) . I am very blessed to have had the opportunities to perform regularly as a professional musician for the last 15 years, and have had the support from friends and especially family along the way. I've performed in a plethora of venues, from wine bars and restaurants to dive bars and wineries. However, it is not very often where I get the opportunity to perform my original songs in front of a sit-down active listening audience in a theater. If you can't tell...I'm pumped!! The OUTCOME: We have been working on some new recordings and we'll be sharing them with you soon! We will also be performing at The Torch Club on September 21st from 5:30-7:30 PM. Other Upcoming Solo Events: I'll be performing at House of Oliver on September 8th and again on September 29th from 7-11 PM. I'm back at Pink Martini on September 22nd from 7-11 PM. As always, thank you once again for your amazing support! Quinn www.quinnhedges.com P.s. Liam turned 2 years old this month! He has been waking up in the morning saying, "Momma, Daddy, Guitaaaaaar!!" That's my boy! We bought him a motorized Jeep for his birthday! (It only took me a shade under 4 hours to put it together...) P.p.s. Despite the due date of August 17th, Davita is still pregnant!!! If the new Hedges baby does not come tonight, we will be going into the hospital tomorrow morning to induce labor! Very exciting times!! P.p.p.s. I've had the "Daddy finger Daddy finger where are you?" song stuck in my head for a month now. Anyone who has a toddler can feel my pain on this.... P.p.p.p.s. Football season is almost here, the Phillies are still in the mix in the National League, and the weather is showing signs.


July 2018

Hey!

I hope you are doing awesome!! As you may or may not already know, I have slowed down my gig schedule because there will soon be an addition to the Hedges family! Baby Hedges is due next month and Davita is doing amazing!

My shows this month are as follows:
7/7 - House of Oliver (Roseville) - 6 PM
7/20 - w/ The Outcome at The Torch Club - 5:30 PM
7/22 - Out of Bounds Brewery (Folsom) - 2 PM

As of right now, I plan on taking the month of August off to prepare for the new baby, so if you want to catch a show soon, please come on out to see myself and/or The Outcome this month!!
Thank you once again for your amazing support! I hope to see you at a show in the near future, and please remember that you are awesome!

P.s. The featured picture above is of the newest addition to my guitar collection! It's a 1970 Walnut Gibson ES-335 TD. I've wanted this guitar for a long, long time and when the opportunity presented myself, I had to swoop in and grab it! Come out to see The Outcome play at the Torch Club this month and you'll hear how beautiful she sounds!

P.p.s. The Hedges Family had a great (and very busy) trip to the east coast this past month. We visited Boston, New York, Dewey Beach, DE, and Philadelphia in the span of 2 weeks.

P.p.p.s. For those of you waiting for the camel picture as mentioned in last month's newsletter, it turns out that Liam was too young to go on the camel ride at the Bronx Zoo...so I unfortunately do not have a picture to share. Sorry to disappoint! we were able to visit the Statue of Liberty though!

P.p.p.p.s. Liam's favorite song right now is "Wow" by Beck. Every time the song comes on he stops everything he's doing and whispers, "Wowwww" really loud.

June 2018

Hey There!

I hope you are doing awesome! I've got a couple of shows this month to tell you about; however, my schedule is a little light because the Hedges family is about to take a much needed vacation!


I have some awesome solo shows this month and in July at the following venues:
House of Oliver (6/1 & 7/7), Casque Wines (6/22), Wildwood Kitchen and Bar (6/23), High Steaks Restaurant (6/28), Pink Martini (7/28), and The Out of Bounds Brewery in Folsom (7/22).    THE OUTCOME has some exciting news and upcoming shows as well! We have just finished tracking everything for a new single that we are really excited to release towards the end of the year. We will keep you posted!! Also, we are performing at the XOXO Music Festival on (7/15). This is a 3-day music festival with an extremely impressive lineup of well-known acts. We're really excited for the opportunity!! If you are into music festivals, please check out the link to purchase tickets HERE (https://xoxomusicfestival.com/home/) !


Music Community Update: As some of you are aware, we have an amazing venue called The Acoustic Den Cafe (http://theacousticdencafe.com/) in Placer County that allows artists, like myself, to perform original music  in an intimate setting. It's unfortunate, but it seems venues like this simply do not get the support that they deserve so greatly for supporting the arts. My friend, and owner of The Acoustic Den, Preston Stepper is asking for support to keep this venue, and his dream, up and running. There will be a 3-day benefit concert series from June 1st through June 3rd with some amazing local talent performing for the cause. If you would like to attend the benefit show(s), click HERE  (https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3455522?cookie_header=1) . If you are unable to attend but would still like to help the cause, please visit here to help SAVE THE DEN (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-acoustic-den-cafe-save-the-den-community#/) . It's places like this that not
only help professional musicians hone their craft, but also give the opportunity to young musicians starting out to express their passion, but develop dreams and love for creating original music. Good Luck Preston! I hope the Den is around for a long long time!   Thank you once again for your amazing support! You are awesome!

P.s. We just watched "Evil Genius" on Netflix....holy moley.

P.p.s. Liam had a monumental moment this path month and we are very proud of him! What did he do? Well, he pooped in the tub for the first time...

P.p.p.s. I have been requested to take a camel ride while on our vacation. Please be on the lookout for an unflattering picture posted on social media of me trying to balance myself and my toddler son on a, most likely not-so-great smelling, hump.

P.p.p.p.s. No, we are not traveling to the middle east...apparently there are camel rides at a zoo in New York.

P.s. If you were wondering what the good news was at the end of my last newsletter, here you go: Davita and I are expecting another little one!! Yup...the due date for the next baby Hedges is 8/17/18. Liam is absolutely thrilled to become a big brother!! Well....he doesn't really talk much yet, but I can tell in his eyes that he's stoked.

P.p.s. Liam's current favorite song is the Van Halen classic, "Drop Dead Legs"! We rock out to this song on a daily basis.

P.p.p.s. I'm excited to see Stone Temple Pilots next week!! It'll be weird to hear them without Scott Weiland, but I'm sure they will rock.

P.p.p.p.s. There are many things I am grateful for in the world and music is by far one of the most important; however, I'd like to share with you how grateful I am for sports.

I know that may sound weird, but let me explain. Being a Philadelphia Eagles fan this season was an amazing thing to experience for more than just watching football on Sundays. The fact that the Eagles played so well inspired me to call my 95 year old Grandfather every Monday morning on my way to work. He would pick up the phone and say, "Well Hello Quinn...How about those Iggles??" We would talk briefly about how awesome Carson Wentz played and then basically catch up on life and so forth. When the Eagles won the game that led them to the Super Bowl we spoke right after the game and shared our enthusiasm and excitement!

As most of you know, the Eagles ended up winning the Super Bowl; however, I never did have the chance to talk with my Grandfather about the game because he became ill and very quickly thereafter, passed away. Although I was upset I was never able to share thoughts of the Eagles very first Super Bowl victory with him, I can't express how grateful I am for how well the Eagles played not so much because they won the big game, but because it allowed me to re-connect with my Grandfather on a regular basis prior to his passing. If this season had gone in a different direction, there's a very good possibility I'd be kicking myself right now for not keeping in touch. Sports are more than just athletic people making tons of money, they are a vessel for cultivating and enhancing relationships. For this, I am extremely grateful.

Rest in Peace Grandad - Fly Eagles Fly!

Jan & Feb 2018

I hope you are doing awesome! Since I am so tardy with this email, this will serve as my January and February music newsletter.

On December 8th, the band I perform in will be officially releasing our "I'll Take It" EP! If you have only seen me perform solo acoustic shows at wine bars and restaurants, this is the perfect opportunity to see me let loose on electric guitar! The Outcome consists of a quartet of highly talented and driven individuals and we can't wait to share what we've been working on so hard with you. Also performing that night is Cover Me Badd (the best cover/dance band in the region and the band my sister Hilary performs in). This will surely be a great night of amazing tunes and good vibes all around. $10 cover.

The Outcome will also be performing at The Torch Club on 12/22 (5:30 PM), and at Bella Bru Cafe on 12/29 (8:00 PM).

Aside from shows with the band, I've also got some killer solo shows lined up this month as well, including:
* Prohibition Wine Lounge on 12/2 (8:00 PM)
* Porchlight Brewing Company  on 12/7 & 12/23 (6:30 PM)
* UnWined on 12/9 (6:30 PM)
* Crooked Lane Brewing on 12/16 (7:00 PM)
* Hyatt Regency Sacramento on New Years Eve (4-8 PM)

Thank you once again for your amazing support! I hope to see you at a show in the near future, and please remember that you are awesome!

P.s. I just wanted to let you know that I will be taking three months off from performing solo shows beginning 2018. I have been performing nonstop for the last 12 years (plus keeping my day job somehow) and have not really taken much of a break. Now that I have a family, I feel it's time to take a little break to focus in that field and also try writing some new material. I will, however, still be performing in The Outcome. Don't worry though, I'll be back at your favorite venues in April!

P.p.s. I recently performed a show for hospitalized children and it was quite an eye-opener. It is so easy to take the little things, like health, for granted. I can't tell you how wonderfully blessed I am and how I need to do a better job realizing this fact...even as I change my son's poopy diapers...while gagging.

P.p.p.s. How about those Philadelphia Eagles?!? As any fan of Philadelphia sports can relate, I'm cautiously optimistic about how this season is turning out. However, Carson Wentz is the MAN!!

P.p.p.p.s. I am slowly learning every line of my son Liam's favorite movies...Trolls, Moana, and Sing. Seriously, quiz me. How awesome would it be if Queen Poppy ever came across the Heart of Tafiti at the Moon Theater?!?

AND, joining us that evening are our friends, and my favorite cover band, Cover Me Badd (http://www.covermebadd.net) (also the band my sister performs with).

SOLO SHOWS
First off, I'll be performing for the first time at Porchlight Brewing Company (https://porchlightbrewingcompany.com/) on Friday 11/3 and again on 11/10!

On 11/25, I'll be back at one of my all-time favorite venues, House of Oliver (http://www.houseofoliver.com/) from7 - 11 PM. Free

On  11/30, I was approached to perform a Sophie's Place Showcase for pediatric patients ages 1-19 of Sutter's Children's Center. I'm really excited to bring some music into the lives of those who need it so desperately. What songs I'm going to perform on the other hand?....I have no clue!

on 12/2, I'm back at another one of my favorite new venues, Prohibition Wine Lounge (http://www.prohibitionwinelounge.com/) , from 8 - 11 PM.

Thank you once again for your amazing support! You are awesome!

P.s. I'd like to take a quick moment to reflect on all of those who lost their homes, jobs, and even lives in the recent Northern California fires. A very close friend's parents lost their home of many many years and it has been devastating. I'm currently working on setting up a benefit show for their family and will keep you posted!

P.p.p.s. The Hedges family had an amazing time in Yosemite!! Also, Liam was Chucky for Halloween this year!

P.p.p.p.s. Let's Go Eagles!!! As a Philadelphia fan, it's imperative that I remain cautiously optimistic about the team and not get too overly excited....but they have been fun to watch thus far!

October 2017

How the heck are you? I've got a ton of awesome shows to tell you about this month, so I'll just dive right in:

This Friday (10/6), I'm very excited to perform for the first time at Crooked Lane Brewing in Auburn, CA from 7-9 PM. What's better than delicious craft beer and tunes on a Friday night?

On Thursday, 10/12, I'll be performing at the Patient Appreciation and Red Carpet event for Dr. Jon, DDS. He's been my dentist for the last couple of years, but a friend for even longer. If you are looking for a great dentist in Placer County, please check him out HERE (http://drjondds.com/) !

On Friday, 10/13, The Outcome will be traveling to Placerville, CA to perform at PJ's Roadhouse. Music begins at 8 PM. Also, the very talented OnelegChuck will be performing this evening! Should be a great show!

On Friday, 10/20, I'll be back at one of my all-time favorite venues, House of Oliver! I'll be performing from 7-11 PM.

On Saturday, 10/21, I'll be performing at one of the hottest new wine lounges in the area, Prohibition Wine Lounge, in Folsom, CA. Music goes from 8-11 PM.

ALSO - I recently recorded a live performance of all original music at the Access Sacramento Television Studio (Local Cable Channel 17, I believe) that will be aired on 10/17 at 11:00 PM, 10/18 at 3:00 PM, and 10/19 at 7:00 AM. Unfortunately, I do not get this channel, so if you tune in, please let me know how I did!

Also, Also...
The Outcome had another successful day in the studio working on some new material! I'll keep you posted as things progress!

Thank you once again for your amazing support! You are awesome!

P.s. Rest in Peace Tom Petty. He wrote many great songs...and left us way too young.

P.p.s. My son, Liam, will be dressing up as "Chucky" from Child's Play this Halloween...a 14-month old in dressed in overalls, holding a plastic knife, all while carrying a loaded diaper... What's more scary than that??

P.p.p.s. Well, the Phillies ended their season giving their fans hope for the future. After being in the cellar pretty much the whole season, they did not finish with the worst record in baseball! There were two teams that finished the season with worse records...the Detroit Tigers and....

P.p.p.p.s. The Hedges family is taking a trip to Yosemite for the first time this month! I'm really looking forward to checking this place out! I just hope those big rocks stay put!

P.p.p.p.p.s. If you have any songs they would love to hear me cover at a show, please respond and let me know! I love learning new songs that I might not have chosen to do myself!

September 2017

I hope you had a safe and enjoyable Labor Day! The Hedges family escaped the oppressive Sacramento heat to beautiful Lake Tahoe where Davita and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary! How she has put up with me for this long, I have no idea...

Here is what is going on musically for me this month:

The Outcome
We are really pumped to be performing a few times this month! We'll be rocking out at Yolo Brewing Company on the 16th, and The Porchfest on 9/17! For future upcoming shows and news, please check out our website HERE (http://www.theoutcomeband.com) !

P.s. Letting you all know that with a heavy heart, My Grandmother, Pat Livingston, passed away on August 5th (which was also my son's 1st birthday). I cannot express how grateful I am to have had one last visit with her and introduce her to Liam. Here is a picture of us from this past July. You will be missed Grandmom!

P.p.s. I am extremely thankful that I had the opportunity to perform a song that I wrote for my Grandmother at her service. It is a tune called "Goodbye" that I released on my "Without You" album in 2010. If you'd like to take a listen, please CLICK HERE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2R9Q7YGIc_M) .

P.p.p.s. Football season is here!!!! Let's go Eagles!!

P.p.p.p.s. Liam loves the movie "Sing", he has started to dance, throw food on the ground, and dunk a basketball all while having a loaded diaper!! Also, at home I think I've grown accustomed to walking around with random cheerios stuck to the bottom of my bare feet...

P.p.p.p.p.s. GGG or Canelo? I'm going with my man from Kazakhstan!

August 2017

How the heck are you? I hope all is well in your world!

Most of the shows I play consist of me performing solo at various awesome wine bars and restaurants, private parties, etc... These solo shows are awesome because they allow me to display my interpretations of a lot of cover songs that I like, while sprinkling in some original tunes as well. While I love these solo shows, they do not allow me to perform with a band and wail on electric guitar. With that said, I am fortunate enough to perform with three highly talented musicians and friends inThe Outcome. We are an original band that takes the craft of songwriting and performing seriously and we have the following amazing shows this month:

  • Torch Club - Friday - 8/4 - 5:30 PM - No Cover
  • Pistol Pete's Brew and Cue - Saturday 8/18 - 9:30 PM - No Cover (w/ House of Mary)
  • Momo Lounge - Wednesday - 8/23 - 8:00 PM - $7 (w/ Michael Ray Trio)

 

Solo Show:
Wildwood Kitchen & Bar - Friday - 8/25 - 7:00 PM - No cover

P.s. Did you know - My music is featured on an awesome weekly Canadian Podcast called Maple Syrup Shots! They have just released their 100th episode! Check them out here: www.maplesyrupshots.com

P.p.s. The Hedges family had a fantastic trip to the east coast last month! I was able to taste deliciously fresh beer at the Dogfish Head Brewery in Delaware, eat an amazing cannoli Mike Pastry's in Boston, and take my son to his first baseball game in Philadelphia.

P.p.p.s. I was very grateful that we were able to introduce Liam to all of his living Great Grandparents. Liam turns 1 year old on August 5th!!! I can't believe how the time flies by! He was a great traveler on our trip back east and even took his first steps in front of his 102 year old Great Grandmother! It was a special moment and we were lucky enough to capture it on film.

P.p.p.p.s. This month Davita and I going to our annual weekend of baseball as the Phillies come into town to face the Giants. These teams are hands down the worst two teams in baseball right now....so these should be competitive games, right?!?
