You know, I thought I would just check in about what’s going on these days. As most of you know, we had a bad situation with our booking agency where they neglected to book any shows for us after I turned over our booking to them late last year- leaving us with an empty calendar and no festivals for 2018. As we’ve reported, I jumped back in and have been slowly filling up the calendar with a show here, a festival there, but it takes time to hear back from folks, and most venues we deal with book 3-6 months in advance, so you can do the math 🙂
Anyway, in the interim, both Jorge and I are working on a TV pilot in Dallas, and at the same time, our drummer Mike Smith has decided to stop playing music for a while and go back to school. Our new drummer, Michael Bahan, is learning the existing songs, and we’ll rehearse them up with him after Jorge returns from tour in Germany with Patricia Vonne in early May. Then we’ll play a few shows close to home, iron out the kinks, and THEN start working on all these new songs I have ready and rarin’ to go!
So I’m just feeling a bit odd, so much time away from the band. I haven’t not played shows for this long in over 15 years. I keep feeling like I’m forgetting something!
As always, I’m looking forward to sharing these new songs with you, and to seeing your smiling faces sometime soon 🙂 If you’re in Dallas, come say howdy and let’s go hang out! Rock n roll, RDSH
