January 28th, 2013
What a fantastic run of shows in WI this past week. When audiences/communities/students embrace what you are doing, it makes one wish to stay out on the road… or get back out on the road shortly. But January and February are also the perfect time to head home to re-learn “new” music from “twenty one,” plot the 2013 Christmas show details in a highly-secured location, plan touring opportunities to other parts of the world and write Christmas thank-you’s (from 2009). Still I must admit that I am already looking forward to the warm breezes of summer shows… when audiences are relaxing in the lawn chairs with the wrap around Ray Bans… when singing “Toes” makes more sense. And if you do hear a blonde guy in the airport baggage line singing a Zac Brown Band tune, just join in on the harmony. I… ahem, he… won’t skip a beat.
