BLACKKISS testing new waters...

Hey there Drifters, Pete here with some BLACKKISS news and some updates on current events. As many of you probably knew, BLACKKISS was nominated at this years NAMMY awards in the "Best New Artist" category. Unfortunately, though I did not win, but don't let that fool ya...I won't give up. Altogether, it was an overall tremendous experience to attend such a prestigious awards show and meet so many talented people in the indigenous musical world. 

Just recently I had the opportunity to perform at the FNX TV studios in San Bernardino, CA, for their annual appreciation gala to the San Manuel Tribe. It was a tremendous event with some powerful speeches from some highly influential people. FNX and their sister station KVCR (A PBS affiliate) also interviewed myself for an NPR segment talking about BLACKKISS and how it all began. 

We were also fortunate enough to perform at the State Room in Salt Lake City to open for the talented HoneyHoney. This was the third straight sold out show for us at the State Room and I am so thankful for them and what they have done for us. 

Now we are heading into the winter season with some high profile shows and BLACKKISS has two huge gigs coming up. First, we shall be playing at the 2016 Indigenous Comic Con in Albuquerque, NM, filled with so many talented artists. Secondly, I shall be playing at the 2016 LASkins Film Fest at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA. We have another huge gig in the works, but I want to wait until it's set in stone before I make that announcement. 

Other than that that's all I got for now. Thanks for the support as always and I shall strive to give you all the best I can at every show and appearance. 

Thanks, 

Pete Sands (aka BLACKKISS)
