Well, my good uncle bill passed into the afterlife today. 77 yo. Leukemia. He was a great man.
Props to you Bill. Thanks for all the great times and advice!
Thanks to the major generosity shown by those of you that come to the JB Band shows, and streams our tunes. The fellas in the band are hellishly good; did you notice? Thanks for the cover bros!
So, we are climbing the VERB charts, and doing it our own way - thanks to you.
Had a nice stealth tour stop in Miami Beach a couple weeks ago. Must have been October 10, 2010.
The joint was JAZID's in South Beach, Miami. Thought it would be a mello jazz kind of thing. You know, neon-lit martinis, hot women in short dresses, art deco, valet parking.
But no. This place was well worn and much cooler than that! This was pure graffiti, trance DJ, Thrash metal, and oddly, Yours Truly doing an all acoustic gig between two pretty hardcore bands. Standing up there in my kahki pants. ha ha.
Fortunately, the audience, with their black clothes, tats, tough looks, seemed to really dig my trip. cool.
My friends in DEREVO!! thanks for a fun show!!
And remember folks, it aint the style of the place, its the place of the style.
I promise you, dear reader, to give you some updates every week or so.
For example: Last night....
Played at Bittersweet cafe' in Louisville CO last night. It was outside under a small metal gazebo. Fall chill in the air kept the insects and crowd down. Highpoint was probably Paul slapping his upright bass along to One Punch Fight.
It was sweet and bitter, bitter and sweet. hee hee.
Played at the Red Stag in Halifax, Nova Scotia. That is 4 timezones from Mountain! This is a brewpub with a long history and famous beer. One "Mr. Alexander Keith" from a long time ago is founder and name on lots of beer taps around the city. All was cool. Bar scene, you know. I hung out with scotish guy "Brian" who was on holidays. He was heading north on a bus tour, and said he would play my new CD on the bus. On the bus, I like that. Night before I met lovely Jessica Rhaye at her CD release party at "The Carlton." Best to you JESSICA! I love your CD's thanks so much! Here is her website - check it out! http://jessicarhaye.com/ Peace
