05.09.2008Holy cow!!

I know folks, a new post! It's been quite a while I know. Let's get right to the point...

We're playing June 27th at Velour in Provo. Come!
Gentry
07.24.2006SweetHaven is no longer... sad, but true. Don't fret though, both Matt and G have new bands: Matt's is called The Goodest and Gentry's is called Roberta
Matt
02.20.2006Hey Everyone:
We have a couple of shows you need to check out; one in March and one in April. As you all have noticed, the shows are coming fewer and farther in between so you'd better catch these as we don't know when the next ones may be... if EVER!
Gentry
10.30.2005Well, we had our baby. He was 9 lbs. even- a real big boy! We named him Gavin Alexander Lee. Maybe I'll try to post some pictures soon. Hope to see you all in Vegas in a couple of weeks.
Gentry
10.12.2005Check out the shows page for a nice surprise....

A NEW SHOW!!!!

We hope those of you that can go, will go.
Gentry
08.26.2005Yeah, I know! A new post!!!!!!!!

Look, the deal is... we're really sorry it's taken so long to do anything. We've gotten a lot of emails and board posts about our activities, Haven happenings, and more. So, head over to the message board where I posted an official update.
Gentry
02.06.2005Congratulations to the New England Patriots!!
Gentry
01.27.2005Sorry it's been so long. I didn't know we'd take quite so long of a break! We've been regrouping since the holidays and we're almost ready to get gigging again! St. George, we'll be there soon, OK?
Gentry
11.19.2004We had such a great time last night at Muse. Thanks to everyone for coming and making it a success. The opening bands were great and we had more people there than ever before. Seriously fun! We played TWO new songs... what did you think of them? The only downer was, my car got towed while I was inside. What a drag, but we went and yelled at the guy so I could sleep peacefully. Thanks for buying the CD too- we hope you like it. I think we're all taking off for the holidays now. We'll see you when we get back. Bye...
Gentry
11.05.2004We're really excited about our show in St. George tomorrow! We hope that all will come who are able to. Also please don't lose hope in the StreetTeam yet... it IS happening.
Gentry
10.25.2004Head on over to Seagull Book and Tape and pick up the new SweetHaven CD. They also have it on their website www.seagullbook.com. You can also pick it up at www.ldsliving.com
Gentry
10.03.2004We've gotten some great reviews on the album lately. For one of them head over to www.ldsreview.net We have another show in November at the Electric Theater too! Shirts will soon be on the website- catch yous later...
Gentry
09.25.2004We had a blast on Thursday night! Thanks for all those of you who could make it. We sold some CDs and shirts, and the cause moves forward...
Gentry
09.20.2004The show on Saturday in St. George was SO AWESOME! We all had a great time playing for you. Come to the one this Thursday for the reprise! If you haven't picked up a copy yet of the album, you can order it online now!
Gentry
09.10.2004Hop on over to www.halestore.com where we have a nice little advertisement for our CD. They were really nice to do that for us. You can get it there, or right here on this website! We're hoping for a really hot show on the 18th. We hope you can all make it if you're in the area (even if you're not!) We'll have some sweet new shirts and of course the new CD! Come.
Gentry
08.30.2004The Sept. 6 Labor Day show at Muse has been moved around the corner to Starry Night on Sept. 14th. Check out the Shows page for all the details. We ARE playing at Muse on the 23rd and hope to see you there. The official CD release date is SEPTEMBER 14.
Gentry
08.25.2004Check out the Shows page for some changes in the show schedule. The BYU Freshman Orientation show is TOMORROW the 26th and in the MARRIOT CENTER. There was some major miscommunication on that. Anyway, we hope to see you there. (Sorry, I guess this really only applies to the fans in this area.) We hope to see you all someday in your respective hometowns! With love,
Gentry
08.21.2004The StreetTeam has gotten a much bigger response than I thought it would. I'm in way over my head keeping it together already! But we REALLY appreciate people's willingness to support. Thank you. We had a great show on Saturday at the Provo Towne Center. It was long because we played between 1 and 5PM, but the people never really stopped coming once we started playing. It was a lot of fun actually and we sold CD's and made money. Great exposure.
We were pushing the Muse Music show on Sept. 6 so for those of you who don't know about it, check the Shows page and make plans to go. We want to fill it!
Gentry
08.11.2004 We're starting up the SweetHaven StreetTeam. If you'd like to help us spread the music in your area, and receive perks for doing it, contact Gentry through the Contact area of the site. We'll send you details about what this will involve. Gracias.
Gentry
08.09.2004A friend has suggested we post more frequently to this thing. I've taken that to heart and have an update for ya'lls.

The album is in pressing, and we even had our album pitched to the buyer for Wal-Mart. If they bought our album and decided to distribute us, we would start out in Utah, Idaho, Arizona and parts of California. Then later, it would pushed to a wider range. We're hoping with fingers crossed! So, the booksellers convention is still coming up (it starts on Wednesday) and we hope to sell a large number of albums to various LDS bookstores around the world. Those would be released at the end of this month. SOOO... Our cause is progressing. Thank you for your attention to our goings on; your patience is about to be rewarded!
Gentry
07.31.2004Hey ya'll. The album cover artwork has been finalized and the CD is about to be pressed and packaged. There's a big bookseller's convention that's coming up in 2 weeks where all the reps from LDS bookstores around the world come to buy merchandise for their stores. Our CD is going to be there, and we hope some buyers will pick it up. If anyone does, then look for it in a store near you towards the end of August, maybe early September. Cool. right?
Gentry
07.24.2004So my brother is on a mission in Poland and he walks into a members' home only to hear "Go Back " playing randomly on the CD player! This is definately "News Section" worthy.
Gentry
07.22.2004I just wanted to tell everyone about PureVolume.com. It's a great website that we're on along with thousands of other GREAT bands. You can check us out there. You can read a short bio and download our songs.

www.purevolume.com

The CD is just about to be pressed and distributed. We're planning a huge CD release party for Provo in September and another release party for St. George. Stay tuned for those great dates.
Gentry
07.19.2004I feel truly re-energized from Saturday's show in St. George. It went so well. There were a lot of people up and dancing and singing our songs... The lights were hot and we sold a lot of our new CDs. We've gotten a lot of buzz already in our inboxes and message boards. I don't know, I just feel better now that the album is out. We LOVE St. George! We always get received very well and the trip is always so fun for us. We're working on a great big show in St. George for September. As soon as the date is announced, everyone down there can help to spread the word- making this the greatest SweetHaven show ever. Bye for now...
Gentry
07.16.2004WE'VE FINISHED THE ALBUM. It's edited, mixed and mastered. The only thing left is a little artwork and then it's a thing of the past. It will be available for purchase however at the St. George show tomorrow night. (Check the shows page for more details.) We're so excited about reaching this point. We'll soon start recording on the next album which will be even better! EVEN BETTER!! I promise I'll be better at the updates from now on as well. Talk to you later,
Gentry
06.11.2004SO sorry it's been so long. We're so near finished with the album, and we've even planned a CD release show in St. George for July. We'll most likely do one in Provo, too. So, yeah, there are finally more shows planned. Check that out on the shows page. Thanks for all the cool posts and emails. Keep 'em coming,
Gentry
05.09.2004HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!

04.26.2004Our Friday show was cancelled due to ill communication, but Saturday's show was full of energy and thrift store clothing; we played with some talented and entertaining bands. Trevor rocked so hard he broke his A string.
Band Bio section under construction... OOPS
SweetHaven
04.23.2004We're off to St. George once again! Trevor recently moved to Idaho Falls, but don't despair, he'll be rockin' and runnin' around at both shows this weekend! Come see us.
SweetHaven
04.18.2004The Dixie Rock Fest was a great show! We look foward to seeing all who can come to next weekend's shows! See "Shows" page for details. Until then, shake it.
Matt
03.31.2004"Do That" and "She's Always There" are completely edited and mixed.
Gentry
03.29.2004Happy 22nd Gentry (Old Man)!!!!!
Matt
03.21.2004Hello fans-- Nine of the songs COMPLETELY FINISHED! See people, we're working on it. Please continue your religious patience practice.
Gentry
03.09.2004Hey guys. We're so near done with the album now, we can actually smell the melting plastic fibers that will become our CD. I know this album is becoming somewhat of a pipe dream to you all... you probably think it'll never come. But IT IS COMING SOON!! Please don't give up hope. We'll soon get the details of our shows up. We just have to find out what they are first! Have a great day,
Gentry
03.03.2004SweetHaven Fans, If you have any suggestions for the website, please tell us. We want to make it fun to visit.
As far as the album? Inch by inch, but some tasty things are in store. you've been so patient. Thank you.
Matt
02.18.2004We're still mixing the songs and they're sounding great! We've changed some things to Tonic, Go Back and Cannonball that we think you'll like. We have a show tomorrow night at Muse Music and we're just going strong. Please write us and keep posting on the message boards if you have any questions...
Gentry
01.28.2004ATTENTON!! ATTENTION!!
Final mixing has begun on the record! That means that we're closer to completion than we've ever been, and you're closer to good music than YOU'VE ever been. There was some confusion about the actual release date (some thinking it was 1/24/04) but that was the final day of tracking. So peoples, the day is upon us that has been teasing us from afar for over 2 years. Hip, hip... and so forth.
Gentry
01.18.2004Hey Folks! We just got done with our second show at The Electric Theater in St. George, Utah. Man, what an energy charged show! It sounded great and the chemistry and feel of the night was spectacular. I'll update more when we get back into town... rock on. Talk to you later!
Gentry
01.11.2004Hey, the show was great last night. I couldn't believe the great sound! A friend of ours came with a tricked out sound rig and really enhanced our performance. We got to meet the boys of Rezolution ( www.rezolutionrock.com) and they're great guys. We spent all day today in the studio and finished tracking a few more songs. We're getting really close. We announced a deadline for our album at the show last night. The date we've set for ourselves is January 24. We understand that your enthusiam might have waned because of the long wait, but we have a new resolve and it's GOING TO BE DONE!! Thanks for your patience... Over and out.
Gentry
01.06.2004So, it's finally 2004. We're doing good so far. We've been back in the studio finishing up some parts of songs like "German Goodbye" which is finished, and "She's Always There" which is almost "there". We hope you all go to see "The Home Teachers" on the 9th. Well, maybe the 10th since we have a show on the 9th. Hope to see you there, Rock,
Gentry
12.31.2003Happy New Years' Eve. We hope you had a great 2003. To kick off the resolutions, we, SweetHaven, resolve to finish the album and get it into the wanting fingers of the people. Check out the Shows section for more shows in January. We'll be busy this month, that's for sure. "A Child's Prayer" is recorded and out. (Though I'm not going to say we're satisfied with it.) And we're looking at another movie opportunity, this time with fiction novelist, Chris Heimerdinger's "Passage to Zarahemla". 2003 was a huge year for us... we owe it to you, and a little bit towards our own hard work! See you next year,
Gentry
12.25.2003MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
SweetHaven
12.15.2003We're unfortunately being forced into a recording hiatus due to the holiday. Full time recording will resume after the New Year- and there's SO LITTLE left to do. In early 2004 you can expect the "Help Yourself" LP. Happy Holidays!
Gentry
12.04.2003We've gotten a few emails about what songs will be on the album... here they are (not in this order):
Tonic
Cannonball
Go Back
No Answer
Happy
German Goodbye
She's Always There
Every Saturday
Vending Machine
Grew Young
Do That
China

There ya' go... It's coming along great. PLEASE be patient. It'll be worth the wait- I promise!!
Gentry
12.02.2003Hey guys! Hope you all had a pleasant holiday. We're just about to get back in the studio for the final leg of recording. We're really excited how it all sounds. One thing I feel needs saying, is that the music to us is one of the most important things we could all be doing right now. We love the frills, but we do it to make good music. Nothing else really matters by comparison (I mean things having to do with the band). We'll need your support on December 12. Check out the Shows page for details on that show. And, we're coming back to St. George in January... ROCK!
Gentry
11.27.2003HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
SweetHaven
11.22.2003I'm updating from St. George this time. We did our radio show that we had a lot of doing. Way cool. We have another one tomorrow morning if you've noticed on the Shows page. We're all pumped for the show tomorrow. The show will be posted soon in its entirety, so beware. I just realized that we're a funny bunch of guys.
Gentry
11.14.2003We had a great time last night playing for all you guys. A lot more people came than we expected especially since the weather was so miserable. Clay did a great set. My favorite was "Revolving Doors". I don't know about you, but I'm going to go to ClayMusic.com and buy his album. We hope to definately see you in St. George next week. And we'll take requests for the radio show we're doing the night before. We'll probably only do a couple and then answer questions. You have to sell your requests to us. (i.e. You should play this song because...) Let's make it interesting! Just post it on the message board under the "Radio Show Requests" page.
I'm out...
Gentry
11.12.2003Today we got our female vocalist Bethany Buck into the studio to finish recording the melody lines for "A Child's Prayer which will appear in the next Halestorm production "The Home Teachers". Everything now is virtually finished and it's just waiting to be received by the producers of the movie. We're pretty happy with how it sounds. We think you'll be pleased. Don't forget about the show tomorrow night. Check the Shows page for more details. We'll see you there!
Gentry
11.09.2003It's 1:49 in the AM. We just got back from a great show in Logan. We were only a little frustrated at the seemingly inadequate sound technicians but were able to pull off a rocking show despite it. Jon's set was great from head to toe. If you've seen him live, you'll understand that I mean that literally. It was Seth's first official show with the band and he did great on the bass! Trevor, Matt and Cameron were incredibly precise. Thanks for those of you who came, and we'll see you in Provo on the 13th.
Gentry
11.06.2003We've finished the vocals on "Do That" and "Every Saturday". The album ever continues towards its fruition.
Gentry
