Good News???

   Discussion: Good News???
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 18 years, 1 month ago
I have heard from the people that run the Nassau Community College Folk Festival that Fruvous is going to be touring again. They are going to try and book them !!!!!!! This is unverified but I had to post this.

fruvous? what the hell's a fruvous? don't you know we're here to talk about nail-biting and do people's homework for them?

nail-bitingand homework???

I thought we were here to talk about batnoses, change our screen names many times in the course of a single hour and spew as many inside jokes as we can on/in a public forum.

what is this place coming to?

Josh Woodward Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
Ooh, if the folks at the "Nassau Community College Folk Festival" say it might be so, I'm sold! ;-)

the good people of nassau community college are well known in the academic community as shining beacons of honesty.
Nik Chaikin Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
Where is nassau?
danced with Lazlo Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
nassau county is on Long Island and is the home of 81 superfund toxic waste sights
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
It is on Long Island about 20 miles from Manhattan and Fruvous played the folk festival regularly. When the stopped playing DVN took their spot.
Janos Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
Oh I hope I hope! I've never gotten to see a Fruvous show, so I really hope I will be able to!
*fingers crossed*
John J. Ryan Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
This better not be a cruel joke.  We'll torch the place if they're wrong!
A.J. Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
Anything is possible I suppose, but I'll believe it when I see all 4 of them together on stage singing a fruvous song.
lawrence Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
so if their first show back is entirely covers, you won't believe it? :)
Joe Navratil Back · 18 years ago
Well, that would be the Chia Pets (plus Dave) then, wouldn't it?
hkath Back · 18 years, 1 month ago
You have to admit it's getting closer and closer to that point, though. Fiona and I are now considering the Mike Ford version of "I've Been Everywhere" a Fruvous song, since all but one Frulad has been spotted singing it, and this on many occasions.

They seem to be revolving in tighter and tighter circles, that's all I mean. I wouldn't give up hope.
A.J. Back · 18 years ago
Oh neither would I. That Mike is starting to play shows and recording an album, I take as a good sign. Murray's GBS duties may be the biggest sticking point ultimately. But I don't think we're going to hear anything SOON. I don't believe this particular rumor. The timing is all wrong, unless they are getting so bored that they've decided to do a few one-off shows.
lawrence Back · 18 years ago
Murray's GBS duties may be the biggest sticking point ultimately.

I don't know that that would be true - he's not a member of the band. he's just a touring bassist. if he wanted to return to touring with Moxy Fruvous, GBS could find someone else. (or ditch the drummer and tour as a three piece acoustic band :)
hkath Back · 18 years ago
Yup, and from what I've heard from Rosemary recently, his general attitude towards the GBS gig is "It's good money". I don't think he's very committed to them. I think the big obstacle right now is >play.
John J. Ryan Back · 18 years ago
But >Play also goes on hiatus during the summer.  Seems like the summer would be right for the 4 of them for a few one-offs.
Yvonne Back · 18 years ago

If it were during the summer I'd SO hop on a bus to wherever they were playing.  That sort of makes sense that they might do something during the summer.

*hoping it's not just a rumor*

I can see the bunny Back · 18 years ago
I doubt it's true. Jian could *never* keep a complete lid on news like a Fruvous reunion when he's on tv every week. There would at least be hints slipping though.
Nik Chaikin Back · 18 years ago
stop bursting my bubble!
I can see the bunny Back · 18 years ago
Sorry - but according to Dave it's news to him that Fruvous is planning to tour again...
John J. Ryan Back · 18 years ago

Oh well, I'd be hard pressed anyone to be surprised by Dave's response.

nate... Back · 18 years ago
In english please?
Mark · 18 years, 1 month ago
I don't know... on one hand Jian would have a lot of political cannon fodder with Iraq, elections, etc... but, I don't know... I'd like to see it happen... but I doubt it can be true.
100% dainty! · 18 years, 1 month ago
is someone trying to fool us?? Though if it is true. . .that would totally rock, would it not??
Yvonne · 18 years, 1 month ago
I hope if it *is* true that they'll play in Toronto too. Makes sense...they live here. I've never seen a live show so it would definitely rock.
Nik Chaikin Back · 18 years ago
maybe they'll make a surprise appearance at frucon.
John J. Ryan Back · 18 years ago
That won't happen.  Dave is out of town that weekend.
danced with Lazlo Back · 18 years ago
As is Murray.
Magical Bob · 18 years ago
WHOA!!! The fact that they might get back on tour is enough to make me happy. One question, how do you guys know all this stuff? Where do you go to find it out?
Fred Goldberg · 18 years ago
I asked Jian (face to face) last Thursday if he was going to be at Frucon 7. He gave me a blank look and didn't say anything. Then I asked if he wanted info about it, and he said, "Yeah." So I gave him the Frucon web site printed in 2 pages with all the details. Jian is the easy to see, if you are in Toronto. But >Play also went on hiatus 12/15/03-1/15/04.
Laura P. · 18 years ago
So, is there any updated info on this?
