hang together. Bravo, many Thanks and prayers to all
on the front lines of this! I appreciate you and

SCARAB will be hitting the road again in 2020
starting in January and celebrate their 10th
anniversary tour. Dates are just starting to be
added now with many more to come that will go into
November of 2020. Keep checking back to the
schedule/dates page for a city near you.
The SCARAB tour ended at the end of September. We
went all over the US starting in Ohio in Feb. and
finishing in Vermont . As usual we met a lot of
great people and other bands along the jaunt. Now
that I am off for a few months I have a couple other
projects going. I have been working with some local
musicians on a new original project. We worte eleven
songs and have decided to put out an EP with five
songs on it. The recording process has started and
all my drum tracks are done. We're hoping for an
early 2020 release.
I've also teamed up with
Eddie from BOTTOMS UP and another great player Vinny
Nault to form a fun side tribute to do when SCARAB
&/or BOTTOMS UP isn't busy. LIVE GONZO! is a tribute
to the music of Ted Nugent. For us it's all about
the "MUSIC". We know people either love Ted or hate
him because of his opinions on politics, hunting,
and general daily topics. Yes.. he's very vocal
about his beliefs but know this... We LOVE his music
and that of Derek St. Holmes and that's the ONLY
reason why we decided to do LIVE GONZO! Our shows
will NOT consist of preaching Ted-isms or his
stances of what he believes in. It will just be
about the music and a high energy fun rock show.
Dates for SCARAB are being booked now for 2020,
so we will be back out there across the US again and
with some LIVE GONZO! shows woven into the schedule
also. 2020 should be busy for me so I'm enjoying
some down time with the family and still doing a lot
behind the scenes. I can't ever just sit around. All
the best to you all always...
SCARAB's 2019 North American Tour has begun and many
new dates are being added so keep checking back for
areas near you! BOTTOMS UP will also hopefully be
doing a couple one off shows this year. Stay tuned!
I will be
performing at this event at around 6:30pm. Come on
out, say hi, see all the other great performances,
enjoy amazing music and most of all support two
suicide awareness charaties.
For those of you who can't attend this show, here is

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN OUR FIGHT AND
HOPE YOU'LL HELP US... HELP OTHERS IN NEED!
Hey there everyone! First off, I'd like to say
thank you to you all for another great year and for
supporting me as well as the bands and projects I'm
involved in. You all are what making music and
touring worth while for me and I love rocking for
Here's whats going on right now for
me. I am currently recording a Tribute to Peter
Criss and KISS CD that is looking to be out in March
2016. All the proceeds will be going to a worthy
cancer foundation to help fight against and find a
cure for this ongoing horrible disease. BOTTOMS UP
is in the studio right now working on our follow up
to "Shelter From The Storm". We're hoping to have it
out by the summer 2016. I will also be touring
around the country again with SCARAB in 2016.
I also want to wish you all a great holiday
season and an up coming prosperous, safe and healthy
New Year for 2016.
I'll see you all out on
the road in 2016. Much love always and thank you
for your ongoing support!
Here's the scoop so far for 2015. It's looking like
I will be touring the US & Canada this year with
SCARAB. Many shows have been added and many more to
come. Keep checking back for updated tour dates.
BOTTOMS UP have been hard at work writing new
material for a new studio album. We have almost
enough for a double album, but we'll demo and decide
what will make it. Who knows... maybe if it's all
worthy we'll record two seperate albums while we're
in the studio. A huge thank you to all the
companies, my A/R guys, and their great gear that
I've been using recently or for years. You power me
and my performances!! I am honored to be on your
rosters. As always, I thank you all for the
support... You all rock my world which allows me to
rock yours! See you on the road!

Boomer has been asked to be involved in a great new
cause and help raise awareness of a constant issue ;
Bullying. We've all known someone that may have been
a bully to someone and the person on the receiving
end. In some extreme cases children/teenagers have
been put through so much abuse they've unfortunately
found no other alternative to stop the constant pain
or bullying and take their own life. This action has
GOT TO STOP. Rockers Against Bullying is an
organization that is raising awareness about this on
going problem and helping people that have been
bullied, families that have lost a loved one due to

Grenier steps down from THE HOUNDS OF
New Hampshire/U.S.A 11/18/11
Due to prior commitments, J.
Boomer Grenier has left the drummer position in THE
HOUNDS OF HASSELVANDER. While all is well in THE
HOUNDS camp, and the new CD "The Ninth
Hour" scheduled for release on 11/26, a tour
must follow and Boomer is unable to participate. The
split is amicable and most likely temporary with
studio and possibly more live performances
almost certain in the future. Brothers bonded
in spirit, mind, and music.... Joe Hasselvander and
J. Boomer Grenier support each others musical
ventures and will continue to do so hoping to work
together again when the moon is full and the
hounds bay in warning of the impending doom. Boomer
welcomes T.C. Tolliver
(formerly of The
Plasmatics) to THE HOUNDS.
" I wish Joe, T.C. and the
band nothing but the best and have the utmost
respect for them. I'll always be a part of THE
HOUNDS OF HASSELVANDER family and look forward to
whatever comes down the road".
I hope everyone had a Happy & safe
Halloween! It's definitely my favorite
holiday and a fun time of the year for most. I'd
love to see your cool rockin' & scary Halloween
So...the new BOTTOMS UP CD is done being
recorded. We finished it this week and will be
heading in to start the mixing process. We're
extremely pleased with the way it's turning out.
It has some elements of the "Shelter"
disc, but leaning more to the heavier and angry
side with still keeping our BOTTOMS UP
signature sound. There's plenty of catchy riffs
and choruses with melodic harmonies thrown
in also. I/We can't wait for you to hear it and
hope you will all dig it as much as we do.
I have a few things on the drawing board for
next year that I've been working on, as well
as some new signature "Boomer" drum gear
that I'll hopefully be able to tell you all about
soon also. It's cool exciting stuff that I look forward
to sharing as soon as I can.
