Our summers are just too short. I totally enjoyed the wonderful, super sunny, hot stretch we had. That was awesome. I just need more of it. I love long days and warm nights and I’m sad they are on the way out. It seems I’m best suited for tropical climates. I’m one of those people you will never hear complaining about the heat. I love the heat. It could be because I’m use to being in hot water. Lol
Nonetheless, what can a person do but embrace the changing seasons and appreciate what they have to offer. Or, fly somewhere else sunny and hot, or a combination of the two. I’ll take the combo please.
On the music side of things, I’ve been extremely busy and look forward to slowing down a bit. I know one has to make hay and all that, but, one also has to have a life beyond work. So, to that end, I am looking at changing things up a bit and part of that would be to finally launch the first in my Roaming Soul Club ‘Lite’ series.
This would be smaller shows, often solo with a guest or two, playing more originals than I typically perform at my ongoing gigs but still with some of the favorite covers. The most likely venue, to start with, will be the White Rock Elks lounge. The plan is to keep the ticket price reasonable. At some point, I will do a larger production with the full band. In the meantime, the smaller shows create an environment where fans can come out and experience the music without so much of the din that is typically present at restaurant venues. Not to mention how much it ends up costing to eat and have a few drinks. The ticket price for the events will end up being much cheaper than the restaurant option.
I also want to mention that the trio will be back at the WAG (Washington Avenue Grill) this New Year’s Eve. Considering how late in life many of us are, I’m hoping to have lots of friends and fans at this year’s New Year’s Eve gig. It would be a gas. And, the WAG is awesome and always fun on NYE. We are also there Nov 26 & Dec 17.
Well, I gotta go get ready for another gig. This will be a new room for me. The London Bull on the Surrey/Langley border.
Peace to you all.
