Demo Release and Return

We arrived safely in Pennsylvania on Monday.  Playing at Eaton Rapids was a great experience.  Seeing old friends, making new ones and sharing lots of music put us on a buzz that lasted quite a while and is still ringing now.  There was a great turnout.  Our many thanks to everyone at Eaton Rapids for their help and assistance, to everyone who came, to  for partnering with us and our huge thanks to the Father who got us there and back!

Now available on and is our new diy demo (just until we get in the studio for real).  You can download the songs on ReverbNation and can stream them on both ReverbNation and Grooveshark.

Also in the News arena is our new name:  Come To Call , the official name of our band.  The demo is called "Demos For Friends".  Our tour is called The Water Can Tour, and the Water Can is our current logo.  Just to keep you all up to speed.  On Grooveshark, it is temporarily named The Water Can (the artist).  We'll be working on that glitch.

We'll be on the road again for our second show in three weeks.  All the dates are as follows, we will be playing smaller venues between these more official ones.  We'll update on where and when we will be places:
December 17th- Rocheport, MO
December 24th- Cisco, TX
December 31st- Augusta, GA
January 7th- Virginia Beach, VA
January 14th- Bronx, NY
January 20th- VT

Band Without a Van

Yahweh is good.  We're trusting he'll help us get to Michigan before the 26th (our first scheduled date).  The van is not in service because the Head Gasket is on it's way out very quickly.  Now we're a band without a van for the trip that we were planning to leave for in 4 days.  It's so good this didn't happen a week from now and leave us stranded in between PA and Michigan somewhere!  For this we are so grateful.  Still looking forward to touring around and playing music with a bunch of new and old friends.

Our tentative schedule looks like this:
November 22 and/or 29- Lansing, MI
November 26- Eaton Rapids, MI
December 3- Rocheport, MO
December 10- Cisco, TX
December 15- Biloxi, MS
December 17- Augusta, GA
December 24- VA Beach, VA
December 31- NYC, NY
January 7- NH/ VT
January 14- Philadelphia, PA
January 21- Frystown, PA

We'll be stopping along the way and saying hello to a lot of people we know in different areas.  Hopefully have many musical moments and memories to carry with us. With us will be the band and great friends, Self Aside.

If our dates change, we will keep everyone posted.  SEE THE FLYER BELOW

Rest Easy

William D. Swartz

William D. "Willie" Swartz entered into eternal rest unexpectedly on Tuesday, November 1, 2011 at MS Hershey Medical Center. Only 14 years old, Willie was a true champion. Overcoming physical disabilities as a double transplant survivor Willie never looked back. His contagious smile was his signature trademark and will be sincerely missed by those who had the honor of knowing him. Willie will be deeply missed by his parents and family, Keith and Angela (Halbleib) Swartz, his sister, Jazmine, and brother, David Swartz of Mount Joy.

Willie was an eighth grade student at Donegal Middle School and loved playing his favorite PlayStation video games Grand Theft Auto and Little Big Planet. He especially enjoyed going to the beach at Ocean City, MD and camping with his family. Willie loved being around people, and found it easy to communicate with friends and strangers alike. His personality was genuine and a natural gift from God, which we were blessed to have shared in Willie’s life journey.

In addition to his parents and siblings, Willie will be deeply missed by his maternal grandparents: Larry and Judy Halbleib, of Bainbridge, and paternal grandparents: Eileen F. Kranch of Rheems and Gary Swartz of Mount Joy; maternal great-grandparent Elizabeth Gutshall of Bainbridge; paternal great-grandparents: Eileen E. Kranch of Rheems and Marguerite Swartz of Elizabethtown.

A Celebration honoring Willie’s life will be held at Florin Church of the Brethren, 815 Bruce Avenue, Mount Joy on Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 4 PM with Rev. David Tressler officiating. Friends may view and visit with the family from 2 until 4 PM. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Willie’s name may be directed to the Nemours Fund, Children’s Health Dept., Shands House, 1600 Richland Rd., Wilmington, DE 19803, Attn: Child Life Department. Online condolences may be directed to Sheetz Funeral Home, Inc, Mount Joy.

Note from Mike and Grace:
Willie was our next door neighbor. He just moved in a couple weeks ago. We didn't get to know him very well. When we would see him out front of his house with his dog we would wave and say hello and he would wave and smile back. Willie is at rest now, but will be raised up on that great day. We will all be in the presence of Yahshua and the Father, surrounded by eternal light. Kieth and Angie, his parents, are great people, keep them in your prayers that they may be comforted.
