Wow, it’s been a while. After dealing with a sad family situation for over a year, I’m happy to be back touching base here.
2016 has started off nicely. Shows with The Samantha King band, Lindsay Broughton, The Counterfitz and Jason Blaine have been keeping me busy while providing a nice variety of music to play. R&B, Swing and Funk with the Counterfitz, Blues, R&B and Pop with Samantha King, and a couple of “big-stage” Country shows with Lindsay Broughton and Jason Blaine.
February will see a special date with The Samantha King Band: our first full-on Blues show at Edmonton’s famed “Blues On Whyte” club, which is known internationally for showcasing legitimate blues acts from around the world. Samantha and the rest of us are especially excited about this show because, for most of us, we’re realizing a little dream of presenting a full night of authentic blues in front of a discerning blues audience. We’ll see if we can pass the test!
Once again, I’d like to thank the companies I endorse for their support and for hanging in there with me while things had to quieten down a bit for the past year. Zildjian cymbals, thank you for being so good to me; Remo, you’ve treated me unbelievably well, and Vic Firth – as with your namesake, your people and your company are the epitome of professionalism and class.
My new superstar web-developer and I hope to build a new site from scratch very soon. I’ll keep you posted as things progress.
All the best. I hope to see you at a show in 2016.
