Well, I dunno if it's the planets lining up, or what, but I have gigs all over the place all of a sudden. Five every month through March, plus most likely two more added each month with another band. And, one place has booked us all the way through December. It looks like it will remain five/month or more for some time. Mercy me, this time last year I had zip. Two good ones coming up. Jan. 28 I'll be at the Tryon Fine Arts Center in Tryon, NC (anyone close by to that area?) doing a duo with an old pal. We are on the bill with many other regional acts for the Chase Away the Blues bash. Jim Peterman, formerly with the Steve Miller band, is on the bill, too. He's a good friend of my bud, Tommy Lytle (who booked this thing for me and him). I've met Jim just recently. Very nice guy and awesome keyboardist. We'll all get to jam together at the end of this gig. The other really good one is for school kids in the Pinehurst, NC area at Owens Auditorium.. The gig is with Glenn Fox who is a super entertainer out of Rockingham, NC. Great guy, too, and friend. He's the most artistic person I know, and in a very deep way. He reminds me of Danny Kay, for some reason. Multi-talented. I've played with him for the past twelve years, when he has something. It's always a refreshing change of pace, and very professional show that includes many of the kids. We all always feel inspired after the show. Glenn takes us all to dinner afterwards at the best places, and pays us VERY well. (I mean VERY, VERY well). I'll be buying a new speaker with that gig money! So, is the economy picking up or something? I haven't had so many gigs all at once in about ten years. How ya'll doing on your own calendars?
