From Good Homes Announces Show In Atlantic City

Some excellent news popped up in my in-box yesterday! From Good Homes is playing a show in Atlantic City on Saturday, September 4th. Labor Day Weekend in Atlantic City? Road trip anyone? Tickets go on sale this Friday (July 9th) at 10AM. The full press release is below.

July 6, 2010- Sparta, NJ- The members of From Good Homes have announced today that the band will perform a headline show at The Music Box, located within the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ on Saturday, September 4, 2010.

The show will be the band’s first headline show since their successful reunion in December 2009 at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ over 2 sold out nights. The band performed as part of The Mighty Music Festival in May. Prior to December, the band had not performed together since August of 1999.

The genesis of From Good Homes dates back to a high school band, when childhood friends Todd Sheaffer, Brady Rymer, and Patrick Fitzsimmons came together in rural, Northwestern New Jersey. Originally called “Old Crow”, and later evolving into “The Dogs”, the core line-up remained. With the addition of Dan Myers in 1988, and Jamie Coan in 1990, the band From Good Homes was fully formed.

The band’s upbeat approach, solid songwriting, and unique sound allowed them to quickly develop a dedicated following on the touring circuit. Bringing together rock, jazz, folk, celtic and jam-band influences under one umbrella, rooted in Todd Sheaffer’s inspired songwriting, From Good Homes forged their own, instantly lovable music. Their unique style prompted one critic to affectionately label the band’s blend of influences as “Hick-Pop”.

From Good Homes released 5 albums during their career- 3 on RCA Records- and performed over 1,500 shows across North America, including two tours with Dave Matthews Band and shows with Bob Dylan, Ratdog featuring Bob Weir, Widespread Panic, Hootie & The Blowfish, Blues Traveler and many more. In 1998, From Good Homes received an achievement award from Billboard Magazine and Irving Plaza for the most consecutive sold-out performances ever (12) at the New York City venue.

Tickets for the show are $35. They go on sale on Friday, July 9th at 10am ET and can be purchased at or by calling 866-900-4TIX (4849). More information can be found at or
