Well I don’t think I’ve ever been this late on getting in my bi-weekly, tri-weekly, quarterly blogity blog post, but better late than never…. I guess. And Holy WOW – it’s been over a year since I started this thing…. jeez. There is so much going on right now… where do I start? Some very exciting changes are taking place – but I refuse to jinx anything so I won’t get too specific. I will tell you that I am working vigorously on my new material (literally in the studio working on “One And Only” right now) hopefully to release sometime this summer or late spring – and it’s going to be 100x better than the previous release. I have a show in May at The Social – pretty stoked about that, and it’s with Andy Matchett and The Minks, Circus, and Soulbirds. The FRINGE Festival will also be coming up at the end of May and then I will slide into the summer.
I played two shows at Florida Music Fest, my showcase on Thursday, April 7th at 57 West and an acoustic set that Friday night at Cafe Annies as part of the Indie Film Jam. Both shows went great and even better was the opportunity to chum it up with other musicians and industry cats. My cousin Jeremy was in attendance at FMF, with the band he manages, Chelsea Automatic. I had a blast hanging out with those guys fo sho! And their showcase at the BackBooth FedeX stage was killer. I danced my ass off.
On the 16th I attended The WPRK 91.5 Comes Alive at the House of Blues and once again I was blown away by Andy Matchett And The Minks’ incredible performance. Those guys are hands down my favorite local band. I grin ear to ear every time I see them. What was even better about this performance was a surprise cameo by Dog Powered Robot and newly added Lollibot. The guy standing next to me gave me a strange look when I began singing along to the DPR theme tune… I can imagine it was somewhat “in stereo” sounding to him. womp womp… In any case it was brilliant and the crowd loved it.
Speaking of the big blue robot… we had our Fringe Preview on Monday, April 18 and the crowd went wild. It always seems to be a WTF?!?! moment when Dog Powered Robot makes an appearance, but this time for sure they weren’t expecting our team because the Fringe producers told them we wouldn’t be able to make it. Ha ha – we sure fooled them.
The days and weeks as usual, are seemingly running together and it seems like there is more to cover than I feel like typing, sooooo… Just as my mom texted me a few days ago regarding family dinner plans, “2 MUCH 2 TEXT” I will simply leave you with this:
2 Much 2 TYPE.
