|Hanging Ten to you from SpragueLand! It was a neat morning with my daughter and I taking on the mini waves at Beacon’s. That’s a slice of fantastic living and the summer has just kicked in!
We had a cool sneak visit with Kevin Hennessy and his wife Lisa who are now living in Columbia, Missouri. Kevin was THE man of the low end bass in our group for many years and for many recordings. Super fun catching up and I’m hoping the next time he’s out we can blend him into the sonic loop for a gig or two. Play on good man!
I have two shows this week that both look like fun. First up is Friday night at 98 Bottles for an event called “The Six String Society” featuring guitarists Buzz Campbell, Tim Walsh and myself. We’ll each play some solo selections, share some stories about the life of the guitar slinger, and then, as the evening progresses bring in Leonard Patton on vocals and ending with all of us jamming out on Hendrix’s “Little Wing.” Both Tim, Buzz, and I come from different musical backgrounds so the night ought to have an interesting cross sonic pollination. Can’t wait!
On Saturday night my Ocean In Your Eyes group is playing a show at the Seaside Center for Spiritual Living at an event called Stand By Attila Tota. This is a fundraiser and celebration of Attila Tota, who is a wonderful fellow unfortunately facing large medical bills due to an unusually aggressive skin cancer. We’re honored to be included in the nights music program and we’ll do our best to bring joy through our music. It’s open to the public so please come on out if you can.
There it is good folks and thanks for reading along. Hope to see you out there.
Kevyn and I are playing a gig together this week and this inspired me to listen to our 2008 release What is Enough? When I came to our rendition of John Mayer’s “Belief” this lead me to see what he’s up to on YouTube and I came across these cool videos of him at Berklee School of Music talking about his songwriting process. I loved it, love his composing and love hearing again our new way of playing “Belief”. The tune has a wonderful message and Kevyn sings up a storm. Check it out!
