Always a Great Time :-)

We had such a great time, as always, at the Driskill Hotel this past Friday- our 3rd show ever with Mr. Michael Bahan on drums, and loving every minute of it! Of course, that’s with Mr. Rick Watson on bass and Jorge Harada on guitar, we’re having such a good time playing for and yukking it up with folks!

I’m still working on a film in Dallas, and don’t come home again now until mid-July. So the gents will continue to rehearse without me- eeeeeeeee- and then we’ll next play right after Mr. Bahan gets back from visiting his mum in Scotland- as in the next day, ha! I know how this goes… πŸ˜‰ so make sure you stop by the Mueller Cafe July 28 for some more rockin’ good times and to help prop our drummer up!

Then we head to the NW to play the Kustom Kulture Festival in Kingston, WA, and a private show a few nights later to help celebrate Ed and Britta’s anniversary and what might very well be our last show ever at Highway 99 y’all… just sayin’… We REALLY look forward to seeing all our old pals up there in August!! And meanwhile, we’re working out the bugs in new songs, so stay tuned πŸ™‚

Shows Coming Your Way!

RD Big Ts

Well, to some folks anyway πŸ˜‰ I’m so excited about the new lineup with Michael Bahan on drums, Rick Watson on upright bass, and of course Jorge Harada on guitar and yours truly on pipes πŸ™‚

While I’ve been out of town working on yet another film, Jorge and the gents have been rehearsing- and everyone has contacted me to say how much they enjoy playing together. Nice!

Our first show together will be at Floore’s Country Store in Helotes next Friday May 25- for which I’m flying home and joining the lads on stage. Yoiks! No stick time for mama, just plug and play πŸ˜‰ I sure hope to see a lot of smiling supportive friends and fans’ faces there that night!

We have a few fun shows coming up after that: Saturday June 8 at Austin’s own Driskill Hotel, Saturday July 28 at Cafe Mueller, and then a quick jaunt out to the lovely NW to play the Kustom Kulture show Friday August 17, and a private show at our fave Highway 99 Blues Club on Sunday August 19! More shows TBA and we hope to see you soon πŸ™‚

Happy Spring (Almost!)

RD-JH Floores Good

Greetings to all of our friends, family and fans out there! We hope everyone is having a stellar Spring, and enjoying health and good mojo, wherever you are πŸ™‚

I thought I would bring you up to date on what’s been going on with my health: if you recall, a few years ago I ran some posts about my failing vocal strength and how upsetting that was to me, spiritually. And how hard it was for me to watch Jorge continue to play with others, especially folks who run in the same vein as I do musically. That was a very hard time for me, and I appreciate the support and love I received from you πŸ™‚

Well things have certainly changed! It turns out that my broken ribs had caused a great deal of havoc with my vocal chords, pulling them out of alignment. I have been going to phyical therapy religiously, and giving my voice a well-deserved break, and doing whatever it takes to regain my health. As a result, my voice hasn’t sounded this good- this warm and melifluous and resonant- in years. On the last few tours we’ve done, my voice held up, and I think it’s continuing to grow and resonate well. YAY!!!

We are still not playing as often as we have in the past- partly due to the miscommunications we had with Atomic Music Group, and partly due to my being away working on various films (and partly due to our personnel change in drummers!)- all good timing it seems. We have started to add shows back into our calendar, and I have been writing new songs that I can hardly wait to share with the band and then with you πŸ™‚

So now we’re just looking forward to seeing your bright and shiny smiling faces at a show sometime soon. There are a handful of exciting festivals and events we’ll be playing throughout the year, so be sure to check out our calendar to find out where and when we’ll be playing next, and until then, keep on a rockin’!
