Austin, TX 2014

My band and I drove to Austin to play two shows during SXSW2014.

We were part of the Red Gorilla Fest...the Red Gorilla people are taking the main drag in Austin..6th Street..by storm and

are giving emerging artists great visibility and exposure. 

We loved our two rooftop stages and we got to play prime time hour long sets.

The sound people were helpful and pretty darn good..considering that amplification issues abound

when so many bands are playing back to back.

The best thing for me was to see the genuine interest and enthusiasm people had for our performances and for our new album.

I was encouraged and inspired!

I really wasn't sure if that was going to be possible in such an environment of overabundance of bands and noise, noise, noise, noise!

If you haven't been to SXSW ever, it did remind me of the Dr. Suess portraits of the whoos in whooville with their made up instruments and funny bicycles with one man band horns and drums and crazy stuff. Remember that?

On 6th Street, any time of day or evening, there were bands rolling drum kits on dollies and people biking with guitars on their backs and an amp in one hand.

Where there's a will there's a way.

I want to go back with a brand new album..hopefully next year!
