TEXAS HIPPIE COALITION RETURNS VICTORIOUS FROM SHORT EUROPEAN RUN BAND ALSO ADDS STRENGTH TO THEIR MANAGEMENT TEAM
(10 February 2011 – Dallas, TX)) Dallas’ favourite sons, Texas Hippie Coalition, have returned from a short four day blast through the Dutch countryside. Playing 5 shows in 4 days, including a stop in Antwerp, Belgium, the Hippies destroyed every stop along the way, leaving hundreds of fans, new and old alike, clamoring for more. “We love our European fans so much,’ says THC frontman, Big Dad Ritch, “we just wish we could get over there more often!”
The band has also added industry veteran Derek Shulman to their management team, bringing some all important muscle to the fold. Shulman, whose record industry career spans over 40 years and is responsible for discovering the likes of Bon Jovi, Pantera and Dream Theater, amongst others, will oversee the day to day operations of the band. Shulman says, ”
I am extremely excited to be working with Brad White and for my company 2plus Music and Entertainment to become involved in the career development of Texas Hippie Coalition. I personally have been a huge fan for a couple of years. I believe now is the time for this band to finally show the world what an amazing bad-ass rock and roll band really is. I am looking forward to help take this band to the heights that they sincerely deserve and for their fans to see them become a headliner worldwide.”
The band’s longtime manager, Brad White, says “The THC Team is thrilled to have Derek Shulman and his partners onboard”, says the band’s manager, Brad White. “His lifetime of experience and his wealth of resources are virtually unrivaled. I see a great future moving forward for the band.”
Texas Hippie Coalition’s latest album, Rollin’ was released last summer through Carved Records and has moved close to 8,000 copies to date.
