Good afternoon music lovers,
Well Friday is finally here, so congratulations for making it through another week.
I spent most of my day today working on the business side of things, which is, without a doubt, my least favorite part of being back in the music business. Still, as an independent artist it is a necessary evil that must be done if I want to be able to spend time writing, composing, recording, and best of all, performing live.
The good news is that we managed to already schedule five dates for the month of January so we will be starting off the new year busy. And we are already booked for the evening of St.Patrick's Day, which, "thanksbetoPeter-saintspreserveusfortheloveofJesusMaryandJoseph" falls on a Friday. (sorry, channeling a little of my maternal grandmother there) We'll let you know where, as we near the date, but here's a little hint: They do not serve corned beef and cabbage , but they do have plenty of Beer, wine, whiskey and whatever else you'll be craving to quench your thirst.
I have a down weekend this week so I will be spending some time in the studio working on a couple of new songs, but if you are looking to have a little fun and catch some live music tonight I suggest you head on over the the Loft in North Andover and catch a set or two from the dynamic duo of Bob Desmarais and Jack Crane, aka The Sonic Boomers. If Bluegrass is more your thing and you feel like a little banjo action head over to the Hearing Room in Lowell where Mark Abare is hosting a Bluegrass Jam Session starting at 7:00. Drop in for a listen or even bring your fiddle. You are always welcome at the Hearing Room.
Well that's it for me today, no rants, no raves, just looking forward to a nice weekend. Oh, and really looking forward to Elise coming home today, I have it on good authority that Spike's school pictures came in and I can't wait to see them!
