Off The Air Proudly Presents
I honestly never thought it would happen, but Friday, March 29, 2013 will be the day Off The Air shows end in Modesto. On this night, it will be almost exactly 8 years since OTA was born into this world—crazy. It’s been such a fabulous and life-altering ride and nothing short of painful for me to bring Off The Air in Modesto to a full and complete halt. However, this doesn’t mean Off The Air is over as I plan to continue my efforts via Off The Air Recordings and live-music events in the East Bay where I would be honored to have your ongoing love and support.
I hardly know how to begin to unravel the thoughts and emotions that went into making this decision. In short, it was damn hard. And, while I’m sad to be moving on, I’m equally as excited for the future and all of the fresh challenges that come with venturing down a new path in life. Without the support and faith of such a lovely group of human beings, I wouldn’t have the gusto and life experiences to face the new challenges that lie ahead.
Thank you is an understatement. Your embrace of, and belief in Off The Air has given me more than you will ever know. The friendships and memories I’ve made have been my greatest reward.
I love you, Modesto. You are in my heart forever—a permanent tattoo. Keep growing, challenging yourselves, creating top-shelf music and art and being straight up awesome. I’ll always consider you to be my hometown and am proud to wear that emblazoned on my sleeve.
Off The Air, Founder
