Well, Still chugging away on the Biscuit Train.
'I THINK I CAN, I THINK I CAN' has a whole new meaning for me.
Building a musical project in this unforgiving town has been a steep hill with a heavy load..but I have no room for self doubt and haters..so CHUG CHUG CHUG! (That goes for the booze too)
Fortunately, I am surrounded by many talented, kind players and well- wishers who have all been tremendously patient while I figure this out. Believe me, there's lots more figuring to do!
Jack has been a dream..assisting with set list construction, producing the beginnings of my first jazz and blues CD- not to mention being a great friend and the best damn bass player around. John Nolan is such a gentlemen...and newcomer Dave Webb adds some seriously fun dynamics on stage as well as incredible competence...nice to have you on board, Dave! I really don't deserve such a great band..I don't know enough yet. So I thank my lucky stars and try to do right by them. I've learned to shut up and listen lots..
My calendar is as full as I want it to be. My goals for 2012 include booking a tour.. just a small one..but I don't really know how to do that yet, so hopefully its not too complicated.. naive right?
The new tunes are getting out there on two radio stations..and the next live performance is tonight at Guilt and Co. I love playing there. I'll keep posting the new bookings as they come up..
Until then, ALL ABOARD!!!
