12/05 - ARC Trio is up and running, we've performed our first two concerts (in Idyllwild and San Diego) debuting several new compositions and some re-workings of a few Helzer classics. Thanks to Paul Carman and Chuck Perrin for presenting us and big thanks to everybody that came out to hear us, we appreciate your support. There are a few pictures from Skye At Night posted above, and we've got more concerts (and talk of recording) coming in the spring.
8/22/05 - After discussing this project for several years, Rick Helzer, Justin Grinnell and Nathan Hubbard have finally found some time in their schedules to get it off the ground. We've decided to call the group ARC Trio, and have been rehearsing, improvising and working on compositions from each band member. I guess you can mark this date on your calendar and send us a birthday card. Look out for concerts coming in the fall when we debut this material.
