so long summer of 2015 You Rocked !

its been a great summer of 2015 for all of us musicians out there in these local little cities rural towns. I am grateful for all the music i got to see and hear this past yr. bands from all over the world come to nola and i am here to help. A Rite we are trying to get more songs to the band AR-15 so that we have a longer set list. I am being placed into the fall season where a lot of my songs are written. I remember as a kid going to NYC with my girlfriend playing guitar in washington sq park smoking herb drinking wine coolers singing and laughing people watching and thinking about the future of my music. It been 25 yrs behind me now. I have a massive amount of songs and bands past present and future. I keep my finger on the trigger and have been lucky to keep in hot pursuit of playing music. The future of music is always cool but the past is even cooler. I have been pushed latly to record some music that i never thought about. Plus i have been seeking to publish some music theory concepts. the Studio stuff is fun and i always need to get back into the console and make some great demo's. I am keeping my eye open for more possiblities that are always right around the corner. Its like when we would just sit and hang out in front of the store krawzers . people pulling up from all over the place. asking us for either directions or smoke. hopping into free city rides and getting around the rest ofthe night using subways and bmx bikes. getting busted jumping the hand rails at $80 a piece - thank ful we didnt have any felonies or warrants. It was and still is always on my mind - its moment like those that help me sing and write about stuff. Like Natashia from Russia - It was just the 3 of us and her. its was just a strip club on a frieday night. I was higher than a cooter bird. Drinking beers looking at titties, laughing all the way to jersey. now its a song. have fun and than write songs about it - its really that e-z cause MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM !

wounded but not outa the game 8-10-2015

I might be a little wounded from the war but i'm far from the onslaught thats aboutto take place when the day comes. I have been playing guitar ever since i was old enough to punch you in th enose and that what i'm gonna do. I 'ma gunna punch this fucked up little world rite in the eye and than i'm stand on yer chest in pleasure. as u see I've changed the songs around its all because i'm fukked in th ehead. 25 yrs of music bitchs and u want some kind of order - I have no form of communications to give the answers to everyone - wtf I'm no god ! But as a mer meak mortal blood flowing human i will pound out my guitar solos than ever before. Ya know latly i've had to reach to the higher power. the native spirits are in my circles and they are helping thur my dark moment right now. I am injured and hurt but i have a baby grrl to feed and so i keep pushingthe music . I have these moment from time to time last yr it was my hands - 25 yrs ago it was my hand - i've been put to the crub a few times but i'm a fighter and i'm damn good looking so thank you mom and dad. We had to ball on a few mission with the AR-15 metal band but its a good thing cause we need some time to jam out new stuff.

THE SUMMER OF 2015 IS HERE :-) XOXOX

AHHH June is so sweet and hot with tons of music and BBQ's. Beers Bongs and Thongs Baby. Thats all i need. Like spring break in Florida or cross country to California. its the Memories of Grateful Dead concerts at the Meadow lands in New Jersey. The back yard badmitten games listening to " Black n Black & U shook me all nite long ". the best thing about JUNE is its when i would get hours of time to practice my Randy Rhoads solos while listening to Van Halens Hot for teacher with a confounded perplexed look on my face & Fretboard. Summer time love with Janis and Jim in Wsahington Sq park looking for Reggie. smooth ass nites of what if or what ever happens for me in June. The world cahnges in the June month. Its was a day like today - hot and blues skyed waiting for the Allman bros to play while stripping negitives for the Print Shop - Morris County Duplicating :-( miss that place - DOMINGO & Bruce - scotty - Art ! Fucking Art ! I know these guys are still jamming - ya paper jams hahahahaha. June is where the eyes are on the prowl and love is in the air. A soft Blue eyes and ivory coast skin makes my blood rush and my heart melt. I see that fireball over at the ALley Kat in a mini shirt and i'm gunna hit that later attitude. Drinking games and intense bon fires. The FINEST HERBS come thru the air in june. Excitement at every turn i would say. I see i am top 10 and AR-15 is top 20 - How cool ! Thansk for that folks - we all must share the creme of the crop this summer. I have been in the top ten for the past yr of the Luvis 25 YRS CD - STill aval on CDBABY.COM/USER/LUVIS I am so proud of that album. recorded in the heart of new orleans at ST ANN Studios - wow ! when yer able to flip your age/birthdate and think where you where at that time, well u will be thinking like i am today. i am 45 - where will i be at 54 - maybe i will be able to get back to L.A and go back to school at Musicians Institute - Maybe my daughter will go to M.I. and i will teach there, thats a cool goal. I had this teacher there name Chas. his teaching were so vital to my playing and even more so now. He talk with such passion for music and how he lived he's life by it - but life changes and o did he and what you get isnt what u might have wanted so go with what you have and ride that logical thought with a big smile thru the sharp and flats. dont be so deadpan bro ham :-) eat drink be mary, smoke with merry and kiss mary, cause there's some about Mary. As a kid June would usher in new musicians and new lessons. Summer rock concerts are my fave - just lik ethe 2 big show for me this month ! I am so bless to be playing guitar in the AR-15 band. Luvis is happy musician. It all because of June . Have a great Summer ya'll cause it start today - dont get busted, stay clean, keep yer nose clean- dont go off the tracks and becareful under the bridge downtown - this is a locals only area - BEWARE...... LOCKED AND LOADED 247-365/420 ROCK IT TO YER SOUL MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM :-) L.U.V.I.S. :-)

Luvis Summer Tour Memories - part 26

From the start i always wanted to go out to stage near you and rock it. Sometime its doesn't go well, all hell breaks loose weather you wont it to or not. I have seen shows collapse from the pressure to just play. I have sipped on wine and slapped back whiskey to get over the stage jitters. IT TAKES some huge Balls to get up on stage and make music. you gotta practice , acquire the right equipment, and hit the streets with those who support YOUR sound. It a hard thing to do. Alot of time you dont get any support and must fight to party. The energy that you will spend fighting is massive. the fighting will increase with every show. the desire to kill the other band on stage is major theme in the rehearsal room . you wanna kill it on stage, slam all others to the kitchen floor you just wann blow the door of the club. you want people to walk away thinking how bad ass was that performance -Mind Blowing jamming. Ya its not always like that but it become that after a while as you practice week after week year after year. 26 yrs ago i decide to make music a daily rue tine . I would wake up pick up the guitar and jam. When i had my dirt studio i would record a rhythm track at night and lay the other track the next night just to keep a daily positive flow of music. My playing became more and more fluid. I would go to my friends house and immediately start playing there drums or bass . Just try to play more than anything else. Go to work and i would make songs lyrics and sing along to last night jam. things go wrong all the time. flat tire and flat notes. Withdrawals and pitfalls happen by the minute. I see that the next month or so is going to be a circus of music. june 2015 is a great month for the Luvis band and the AR-15 band. So many different cools things going on. Got a email about being on SRL Radio and touring thru Canada in the Fall 2015 maybe. Took some time to look at all the stuff i have and all its like a giant warehouse of Christmas past's :-) yesterday was Memorial day - i had to work - no biggie cause 25 yrs ago i was sitting in my parents house with some friends of mine jamming the Star Mangled Banner ! I forgot to do so yesterday with my family as we were having a new Orleans brunch. I used to play a lot more and dream of laying every nite with 2 different bands . Lots of things change. just like being able to instantly download a song that the band just recorded last night. I am still amazed that we can all just sit and listen to any song i recorded all from a cell phone calulater. I almost cry everytime i think of it. Songs that me and my dad goofed around on and played are available right now on www.musicxray.com lots of great rock and roll luvis moments caught on the video lens. I would never have funked it. I still see a lot of gigs that we played and man i wished that shit was on camera. The nite the band WOODRO played the Down Town Beruit Bar off St Marks street in teh bowery of New York City. That show was fucking insane. I was so fucking High on Life. The Band got off with a wild nite of drinks, skin heads, laughing, janis joplin jams & sweet slaming in your face blue rock classics. I remember weeks before wlaking in some old school clothing store off Tomkins Sq Park , Pearl & found this 1960's orange & white big rimmed collar shirt that i wore. it was a jimi hendrix woodstock looking pirate on stage that night. higher than a cooter bird . I remember 1 point turing the amp all the way up and thinking we had to being the loudest band on the street - so fucking loud that lil marshall amp could be at times . Ya it only happend once and than the club closed down and that was that. some folks dont ever get to say they played new york city. We did. All fifty states baby doll is a great goal in life. I'm gonna make it and i'll be just fine as frog hair'z slit Peas vaze ! hahaha and yes a Pigs Pussy Pork Taste like chicken :-) wahahahah MUSIC MEANS FREEDOM L.U.V.I.S. 2015

Music Means Freedom # 1

Music is hard work with very limited knowledge of the who what and where. I am glad i was taught music by those who were't PUSHY and Forceful to make a chord sound correctly. I was a student of several instruments in life. I took Saxophone lessons, I tried to learn drums. I took piano lessons. I met with hundreds of artists and musicians to learn more and more about playing and performing. I have sponged my entire life on the music that i hear and that is made. It is why i love what i do. I whistle while i work sometimes. I have made a lot of songs in my head while building a servers and networks. I write songs all the time. Mostly i feel a moment in time and i than write down what i'm seeing around me and what may or may not happen. With time and places like today its hard not to be able to write a song. There is so many issues to write about. I was atthe jam room last night. This door open up and this guy walks out of it. Looks over at us and says " would you guys stop spitting in front of my door " . Than walks off to the bathroom. We all looked at him like " fuck You " Thats a songs to me now. I woke up today to a great bunch of moments that of course i cant complete fast enough so i have to type faster. I have a honey do list a mile and half long. It always my fault whenit comes to maintenance , if it ant my head needing fix'd its the idler arm on my pick up truck, dont forget to go to the bank, walk the dog and record all those songs to reverbnation, upload those pic;'s and create another web page. promote til yer gonna drop, now go get me a report from norton anti virus & carbon copy it to our office in Indiana. FUCK. I am lucky to have what i have and i have everything i need. I just dont have the time for it all. The amount of stuff it takes is killing me. I need some help maybe an assistant who can sit with me and help me get all these things in order and on time. Trying to meet people on there time is insane, hell even when i text people it take forever. I was asked to take on a gig by group of people and than i was ask to sign a contract for another meanwhile now of these people understand that i already have plans set for these shows. Awwwwwww well. I will just keep moving. I will just try and do whatever i can, cause life is short. I could get hit by a drone and be dead tomorrow and than all of this crap get thrown into the river and its back to more bla bla bla I see a sweet sun out my window, my girls are all happy shiny people, my lawyers hate me and the cops are shooting unarmed citizens. Big shows next months for NOLA Team~ AR-15 Its gonna be awesome show for us. I will try not to smash my fingers or bust my amps. Music Means Freedom Sorry about all fussy stuff - my heads isnt right today - I am taking alot of heat from all sides - plus i'm cutting back on coffee. time to make the donuts and call my family - luv to all my friends and fans. Cheers L.U.V.I.S.

# 3 for Rock, 2 DAYS left for AR-15 shirts ! 1 Luvis

So its a Day of number crunching to witch i am glad to be a master of mathematical in th technological world wide web with what i was trained by the masters of the IBM / Microsoft world. As a web master network engineers of all systems running open source has lead me to this toxic idea that i have been able to accomplish the goal set out as a young jersey child . As i broke out of my shotgun shell i was able to adapt my skills to play music since i was stopped by the police with my motor cycle dirt bike riding events in a court of law. I played and studied with hundreds of musicians who all thought just like me that maybe somewhere done the lonely road a song would be able to make them money . Some of them where never able to get into a studio setting to record because there business was teaching and lessons and students and demands and requests etc etc. We all have had experiences that have transformed into what we play and who we jam with. I per-fer blondes to redheads on stage but thatch just me. Now as the NWO engorgement comes to attacks us in South with special forces and boarder patrols Us musicians must tell the mass's. We all have a special duty to tell the truth about music. to train and teach. to play and record. to release and allowed ANY BODY IN THE WORLD TO HEAR IT. I started out in new jersey and now I'm sitting on top of the world wide web. I owe the internet much love but i was there to see it and help create it - we all hoped none of you would have used it - wahahahah AR -15 SHIRTS ARE down to $ 20 bucks 2 DAYS LEFT TO ORDER only 50 shirts available AR-15 is about to play at Spit Fires JUNE 30TH 9P.M.
