(November 4, 2014)
Well, so much for my goal of writing a new post at the top of every month. Life does present its share of interruptions doesn’t it. Funny enough, just as I typed those very words, I got interrupted. Don’t even remember what it was, but that’s the way things have been going lately – bouncing from one thing to the next. I’m not complaining. Does it sound like I’m complaining? Doing means I’m alive and even if sometimes the thing I’m doing isn’t the thing I think I want to be doing or should be doing at least I’m doing. Speaking of which, I made a big long list of things for doing but I can’t find it right now.
Let’s see what’s on the calendar for this week – Monday – in the studio with the Yellow Room Gang (Jim Bizer wrote a fantastic new song which you’ll get to hear soon); Tuesday – rehearsal with Jason and Ozzie; Wednesday – On The Tracks Songwriter Showcase with John Flynn and George Heritier.
Keeping the rest of the week open for getting things done…
As you were.
Does September have a smell? Sure it does. Whether its sweet or not is probably a matter of perspective. I’m not buying this “end of summer” chatter. Mostly cause it feels like we didn’t really have a summer but its still 80 degrees outside and the leaves haven’t started turning yet so, there. August was about the busiest month on record for us. Not a single weekend off (yay!) and packed with truly memorable experiences. The streak continues this month – for the first part of it anyway. So excited to be returning to this superbly run venue in Noblesville, IN. We’d be so happy if you shared this info with your friends in the Indy area.
Then we rush back home to join the line-up at this new wonder located in our fair town of Ann Arbor! Check out the tasty homegrown awesomeness! Click the image for all the details!
Sunday is a double-whammy as we start out the night singing with Jill Jack and a boatload of amazing women. Such an honor. Words fail. Watch the video.
Then its off to the Trinity House Theatre for Empty Chair Night starring the charming and gifted, Joel Palmer and featuring the lovely Jo Serrapere.
Less than a week later, we’ll be back at Trinity House Theatre performing a full night of our own music with Jason Dennie AND Dan “Ozzie” Andrews on bass. This is one of our favorite places to play anywhere and its always a blast for us – which generally means its a blast for the audience, too.
We just uploaded a bunch of videos from our last Trinity House show back in June 2012. Here’s a song you probably won’t hear at this show. More to come ;)
Oh and The Rough & Tumble will open the show! Check out their really cool website = http://theroughandtumble.com/
Then a little break begins as we jump in the car for a little camping trip to Asheville, North Carolina! Can’t wait!!
Finally, we’re finishing off the month on September 28 at The Yellow Barn in Ann Arbor. Judy Banker has organized this lovely collection of musicians to help keep this wonderful venue alive in extremely difficult times.
