That's my story and I'm Sticking to it .
It has been a long time since I have updated this site. As difficult as it is to manage a gig rehearsal, recording and occasional lesson schedule I have realized that updates on this site should be a priority. I have recently closed my Face book account due to the fact that it takes up way more time than I had first anticipated. I first opened it to use as a web page for music and instead used it for everything but.
The spring and summer rehearsal and recording schedule have kept me busy and now I am starting on a new musical chapter. Solo gigs have been lots of work but so much fun. Back up gigs (although they are not as eventful is always a fun challenge. I have been so fortunate to have worked with so many great artists.
I still occasionally go to Chicago Jams but mostly to visit friends. Rodney Brown’s Wednesday Night jam at Blues on Halsted is still one of my favorites simply because it is a friendly scene and players of all levels are welcomed. Thursday Night Wooden Nickel is also a long standing Jam. Barry always welcomes everyone who wants to lay down some music. Anyhow, I am currently having some fun mixing down on a few tunes which were recorded live( what is live anyway?) and will post them for free download.
Time moves fast when: or is it that I am very slow at computer work? It seems my favorite key is “Delete” . Time to pack up for an early gig , so it is time to go.
Fall and winter bookings are slowly shaping up with back up work for a couple of artists and while I am waiting on confirmations on solo gigs things are shaping up in the studio. Don't forget folks that we can accommodate anyone from a single artist to five piece bands fairly comfortably.
I will add a Calendar asap
