I'd like to thank my team behind the scenes at EndIt, along with Ben Schroeder, Herm Schneider, Ian Davis, Borntown, & Frost for facilitating the look, sound, and logistics that made such an elaborate idea possible. thank you to the fans for coming from all around to see what all the commotion was about, you guys were great and made us feel amazing up there. Thank you to Will, who reached out to me about a year ago and who brought Snug Harbor into my life. Thank you to Dan, Joe. Swab, Justin, Matt, & Nick for being my long distance best friends and band mates! Thank you to Sam for organizing the strings and making it easy for Tom & Jordan to jump in and kill the parts with you! Thank you Mikey Thunder for adapting what i had given you into working additions on the turntables, you crushed it! Thank you Marcelo Moxy for bringing the good vibes on vinyl early in the night and then smashing the synth bass. Thank you Paul Basic for being my brother and lending you talent to the band. Thank you Clark for being amazing on the sax and for taking the time to be a part of this smile emoticon thank you Keeplove, Sinclair, & Jubee for bringing new life to the vocal parts and making these songs soar! Thank you AC for keeping the beat and being there beside me all these years! And thank you C1 for killing your verse on Sweet Remorse!
