Guitarist Jeff Westlake of the Ashland, Kentucky-based rock band HYDROGYN has issued the folowng update on the group's current tour:"The tour has been awesome to this point and very enjoyable. We have played places that we have never been before and the reaction has been great. It is nice to see the great reaction here in the states to the band and it has been so good that we have already booked return dates to alot of the same venues for the future."
According to HYDROGYN's webmaster, "Jeff went on to say that the band is filming every night as well and for fans to look out for the video as well as an announcement very soon on how they will be able to view this footage on the Internet. This covers everything from actual live footage to behind the scene antics and practical jokes.
"Julie [Westlake, vocals] is also very busy as well at this time not just with the live dates but she is also doing alot of charity work as well. One of those is her annual work with MDA [Muscular Dystrophy Association] and fund-raising for the organization. You can find out more about that and helping Julie to help people who are struck with [muscular dystrophy] by following this link and doing what you can as well to help.
"The band will be announcing more tour dates this week as well as dates in Europe very soon as well. Also look for in-store announcements and meet-and-greets to be announced as well."
