So I have been getting the chance to check out the music scene in Texas as a freelance player over the last couple months and it has been a ball. I've been playing dance halls, bars, coffee shops and all sorts of places with some very talented people. here is some stuff I have coming up over the next week or so:
Weds 7/21 7:30 to 9:30 I'm playing with Jenifer Jackson at Botticelli's on South Congress in Austin. Lucy will be there !
Thurs 7/22 5:15 to 6:15 with Pete Minda at Momo's in Austin
Friday 7/23 with Brian Pounds in Dallas at The Opening Bell Coffeehouse
Saturday 7/24 with The Blue Broussard band at the Cheatham St. Warehouse in San Marcos
Monday and Tues 7/26 and 7/27 Playing a corporate gig of some sort with local Austin legend Shae who needs no last name up in Dallas
Weds 7/28 I'm playing with Jenifer Jackson at Flipnotics in Austin from 6:00 till 7:30
7/29, 7/30, 7/31 In Vinton, Louisiana at the Delta Downs Casino with Brian pounds. Full band. Also Brian and I are doing a duet thing in Lake Charles on the 31st at the Porch Coffeehouse.
I am starting to put my own band together also. We will be playing music that is in the lofty world of self indulgence with no particular purpose. I am hoping to use the medieval practice of the hocket while playing The Girl from Ipanema at some point in public. I tell you the will kids go nuts for that shit !
Oh yea, I got a cowboy hat and figured out how to make my delay pedal make everything go backwards so all is well.
