This past weekend was our first public mashup of BudaRest with Sweet Turbulence. We performed BudaRest and Sweet T originals at the fabulous Chalk Festival in gorgeous weather to a warm crowd. I can hardly wait for the next event, which is just around the corner. We will be performing at The Broadway Bar, hosted by Lenny Long. Creating and playing original music with such talented musicians as my partner Bud, and fellow band members Dan, Erock, and Jillie of Sweet T is what I live for.
Bud and I will be introducing Sweet T on this week's show at kdwradio.com, tomorrow night at 8 PM, and next week, we will be playing an original Christmas song Bud and I wrote called Giftless Christmas. It just dawned on me that this marks the anniversary of BudaRest. It was almost exactly a year ago that Bud and I ran into each other at the YMCA and decided to write our first song together--a Christmas song. As it turned out, we wrote two. Then many more non-Christmas songs after that.
So keep tuning into our radio show, and checking in for updates on what BudaRest is up to. It's always something. There will be many more songs, many more shows, and many more mashups to come...
I sit here, excited and overwhelmed by this fast moving train. Only 8 months ago, Bud and I ran into each other at the YMCA and half-joked about writing a Christmas song. 36 hours later, we ended up writing two.
Now, I feel sort of like I'm back on the circus train, heading for a new city. A new experience. And this train is moving fast.
I only wish my thumbs could keep up with my excitement!
