    Wow. Talk about small stages.

    Cool gig, though!

    Yes, I toured with Cracker for a few weeks in July 2012. I am actually in the studio with David and Johnny this very minute. Getting ready to track another tune.

    Is Cracker still pertinent?

    I did it about 10 years ago on a very hot 4th of July on Cape Cod. We are on the back of a small flat bed truck. The owner of the truck was a drag racer and he was towing the race care at the same time. The exhaust from the dragster was aiming right at us and whenever he started the engine the exhaust blew right in our faces. It was a very unpleasant experience. To make matters worse, we had a gig that night.

    Awesome. I love Cracker and Camper. They did a dual show in Grand Rapids a few years back, good stuff.

    Today was a lot of fun. Tracked about 4 tunes with them so far. The songs are great
