Rockin’ and Rollin’ is FUN

I’ve been home nearly two weeks now, and finally feel like I have my feet underneath me- whew! Jordan was such a challenge on so many levels, but also such an amazing experience and heart warming too. People are people, no matter where you go πŸ™‚

Now the gents in the band and I have been working on brand new songs that I’m so excited about! They’re a little different- some jump blues, a bit of old school mambo, and of course gotta have that rockin’ and rollin’ cause it’s so much fun πŸ˜‰ I’m excited to play these new songs for you…

This Saturday we’re going to break a few new ones out at the Bang Bang Bar in San Antonio from 10pm-1am (hope to see all our SA friends there!!), and then January 24 we head to SoCal to represent Gretsch at the NAMM show, and play Friday January 25 at Yost with Chris Cosello, Tammi Savoy, Jason Lee & the Riptides, Jamie James & the Kingbees and more surf, rock n roll, and R&B than you can shake a Gretsch guitar at! RDSH go on at 7pm so get there early!!

The next night, we head back to familiar territory in San Diego at Tio Leo’s to play with our amazing pals the Sea Monks- if you don’t know who these guys are, you HAVE to come to this show to hear and see for yourself. It’s going to be an amazing night! All ages show until 10pm- Sea Monks play 8p-9p, Ruby Dee and the Snakehandlers play 9:15p-11:30p See you there!! 

Ok enough yammering about where we’re playing next- I’m just so excited to be home and to be playing music again with the boys in the band- can you tell? Come say hi at a show soon- we’ll be sure to give you an eye and earful πŸ˜‰

If you have decided to pursue music as a hobby or passion, the first and the important problem you face is trying to choose which instrument to focus on.
