all, been awhile, i know. but i will explain why :)
so late last summer i was asked to join one of the house
bands at the legendary Roxy nightclub in downtown Vancouver. i had to learn a lot
of songs and learn how to program keyboards (i play keys, guitar and sing). it was
a lot of work and had me consumed for many months. but now i am playing 3 nights
a week (wed, thurs, fri) with 4 amazing musicians at the most popular live night
club in Vancouver. it is a lot of fun and has me back on stage 3 nights a week every
now that i have settled into the gig, i am turning my focus
back on tripfuse. i have been back writing and recording new ideas and songs.
Reggie and i have also been doing some co-writing and coming up with some
cool stuff. we will hopefully have some rough stuff to share soon. we
are excited to get back into the studio again.
as far as live tripfuse, well we started rehearsals
right before the offer for the gig came in, and then that took over my life. tripfuse
rehearsals had to stop. i simply didn't have time for the amount of work required
to do both. we did record the rehearsal and Reggie made a cool edit of it
and i will post it just as soon as i make a few new videos for the youtube channel
(which was also very much neglected since the Roxy gig). rehearsals will probably
start back up in spring. i would like to record another ep first :) and
then do some shows this summer.
thanks for being patient and staying on this list. means
Reggie has been rehearsing with his other project and is worth checking out:
but certainly not least, Issah made it into the finals for the Roland V drum off
this year. That is nation wide!!! He flew to Montreal for the finals
and competed oddly enough against one of his friends :) there is a video and
we will post that soon too :)
hope everyone is having a great start to 2012!!!
