Q: Hey Cap! how you doing? Peter Daldry here, sorry I have not thanked you for your kind words until now. Just been playing your music, good stuff! You playing Mountain View anytime soon?

A: Hey Peter. Nice to hear from you. I'm hoping to start looking for gigs once the school year winds down. I'll definitely be coming out to the Red Rock open mic within the next two weeks.
