Hey gang, Apparently someone missed me around here -- you're sweet, @armyadarkness -- and so I decided this justifies a thread explaining my absence (like I'm that important ). I've been busy getting my groove on playing seven gigs in five cities with six different groups over the past two weeks. Lots of travel time... and booze. While certainly not a lot by most folks' standards, it was a lot for me as it involved cross-country flying to Nashville, Tennessee and a hell of a lot of driving by Alaskan standards. I recently did a super cool gig playing a brew cruise out of Seward, AK, with a band I've worked with for a year now, Blackwater Railroad Company. This is a cool video I found that was recorded over the weekend. It's a bit of a sneak peek at what I've been up to. I'm behind by at least eight gig reports, so vlogs will soon be a thing because the idea of writing all this on a teensy Galaxy S7 phone is stressful! In the video, we're blasting through strong waves and a speaker situated behind my pedal steel player and within arm's reach of myself. After a jolt, the speaker falls forward, nearly colliding with his head. I grab it and get right back into the groove. I'll post more when the gig video is done. Enjoy!
