I hope you are doing awesome! This is the last month of my break from playing solo shows; I'll be back next month at Prohibition Wine Lounge, House of Oliver, UnWined, and more amazing venues!
The band I am a part of, The Outcome, has some awesome shows this month that we are pumped to be a part of. First off, on Wednesday, March 14th, we will be performing along side of a couple of amazing Sacramento bands (Mondo Deco and Mikey LP & the Krooks) for 98 Rock's "Local Licks" concert series at the Powerhouse Pub in Folsom. Music starts at 8 PM!
The Outcome will also be playing Happy Hour at the World Famous Torch Club on Friday, March 23rd, from 5:30-7:30 PM!
We've been working really hard lately and can't wait to share our tunes with you! Here's a link to The Outcome's EP called "I'll Take It" for sale now!!

As always, thank you again for your amazing support! I can't wait to see you in the very near future!
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!
