Well, hi, everybody!
For those who didn't know, I was out of town for a few weeks. I was supposed to be gone for a couple of days, but then I got another gig, then another one...
I ended up playing in California for a week straight, at the Gold Country Casino. They loved me there, and I get to play there one week of each month. That should take care of my immediate bills.
After that gig, I flew back to Vegas, and then a few hours later flew out to Texas.
The Texas trip was a blast - I got to play for my old church, and then I got to jam with my Grandad - "Paw-Paw" (one of the world's best banjo players), my grandma - "Nana" and my step-dad Robbie, and my nephew Zachary. Family jam sessions are the most fun, I think.
The trip was a complete flop when it came to seeing exes... I was supposed to see Anna, and she ended up bailing on me. I was going on a date with Tina (not really an ex, but we did date), but I lost her number. I got ahold of Andrea, and she really didn't want to see me. Maggie (also not an ex, we did date once) had her kids to work around, and scheduling didn't work out there.
As it was, there were just too many people to see anyway... I didn't end up having the time to see Bob and June, or Jonathan and Michelle. I know too many damn Texans!
But it was great to see Katie, and Caleb, and my family, and my old church members (all the choir!)... I need to visit again soon.
I got back a week or two ago - haven't been working any, so I've become obsessed with recording. For some reason, I'm in a Country mood, and I've gotten about 4 songs ready to send to Jonathan, whose job it is to turn mediocrity into genius, for which I can then take credit.
Great to have talented friends.
Anyway, I'll quit neglecting my blog now. I'll keep it updated.
Whatdya mean, you've read that on here before?
