On a slow news day but news-worthy, posting an email I received from Ten Club today:

Looks like Ten Club is making improvements to their site... That's what I love about Ten Club.. They're always working to be better; its a testament to the work they do. Looking forward and can't wait!! Nice Job to Tim and the crew!!!

We are excited to announce that Ten Club will be unveiling the new website in early June 2012.
It’s been a long road, but we’ve finally arrived thanks to the creative input from the band, a stellar team of site developers new and old, the band’s archivist and recording engineers, and Ten Club member feedback.

A bunch of new advanced features have been added, including:
-      Enhanced discography
-      Enhanced show archive, including memorabilia from the show
-      Expanded live photo slide shows, including some never seen before

In order to prep the new site, will be taken offline from Sunday, June 3rd until the site launch scheduled within a week.  Our team is working hard to make the transition as smooth as possible.  However, with any new site launch there can be some unexpected growing pains. Your patience is appreciated in advance.
To expedite getting answers to your questions about the new site, we’ve set up a page called Answers to Frequently Asked Questions, which we will update continually. You can find that page at the following link:
If you don’t see an answer to your question there, please email
As always, we want your feedback. Once the new site goes live in early June let us know what you think and what we can improve by filling out this feedback form
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek behind-the-curtains to give you a feel for things to come...
