So, my wife and I moved to Manhattan almost exactly 2 years ago... It's been the hardest most rewarding experience of my life. I've played some amazing music and met so many great people and musicians. I love living in the city. You never know what lies around the next corner. There are things that happen here that don't happen anywhere else... For example, my wife's friend manages a restaurant in Bklyn. Her husband is a great drummer and put together a little blues trio to play the bar once a week... We went last night, and as soon as I walked in I instantly noticed how great the band was. The bass player immediately looked familiar and was playing an old beat up pbass... After about one second I realized it was Andy Hess! On their break the drummer introduced me as a bass player...super friendly guys. On their last song of the night Andy looks over at me and holds up his bass...wanna play one?! Hell Yeah! It was great to play with the band but also to play Andy's bass 1963 stock P that he's played with prob anyone you can think of... This is why I love NY! Only here can you walk into a random bar on a random night and the bar band are some of the best player in the...world?!
