On our most recent “20 Tour” (fan-hosted concerts in backyards, etc) we took a set break during the party and composed a song from scratch that in some way captured the essence of the party… all in under 20 minutes! We recorded each song with an iPhone and have compiled them here! Some were hilarious, some were disasters, all of them were FUN! Click the album name to hear all the songs.
During the Full Service Circus 2 (October 24-26, 2014), the band played their acoustic album “Roaming Dragons” front to back during the backyard show at FS-HQ in Austin, TX. Recorded by Mark Harden and mixed by Hoagman, the entire show is available for download for $5 on Bandcamp. It includes all the songs, the ridiculous banter, and even a marriage proposal!
“Full Service Saves Christmas!” – the new Christmas album is out NOW!
10 original Christmas songs with at least two written by each band member.
Hear it and buy it on Bandcamp (below) and hopefully on iTunes soon.
“Presale customers of Full Service’s ninth studio LP received regionally specific tree samplings with this disc. That loving connection to nature reveals itself immediately on Carousel, with opening pair “Honeybee” and “Evergreen” setting love stories amongst the flora and fauna. Downplaying the reggae and metal influences of previous efforts and finding a comfortable zone of smooth, sunny eclectic rock, the local grassroots quartet are liberated to employ cooing harmonies that lead into spring-heeled choruses where singer Hoag Kepner’s tender voice can hang on a soulful line such as the Beatles-quality hook of “Huge Gray Blue.” With a band like Full Service, fan-loving, tree-planting, community-minded posi-rockers that they are, inspiration remains the end goal, but I’d argue that the best moments on Carousel – the stony melodica creeping into “Two Old Birds,” the unexpected shred solo on “Ba Da Ba,” and the fluttering, motormouth intro on “Circus Freak” – occur when they get strange. “
