The joyful day!

A quick update

Thursday night was the open mike at Penguins Comedy Club in Cedar Rapids. I got 4 minutes. I didn't have my guitar cord. So I just got up there, set the mike aside and sang How Can I Miss You?. It went well, but I think that the booker there didn't realize that all I do is songs.

This weekend I have been at Demicon here in Des Moines. Im sitting in the back of the music room listening to Orckes And Trolles and Knotty Dog play. It' a good time.

The show friday night was a 2 1/2 hour marathon with Susan Urban and Sandy Andina. Talk about serious fun. We are talking about doing some more shows together. The idea seems to be Minneapolis in the next couple of months, so all you up there be very afraid.

I don't have a set list at the moment, but there is a recording that I am going to remaster after Mahtowa and the CD is done, as well as recordings from the last couple of years. A lot of work, but it should be a great time.

So, a 2 1/2 hour show friday night, I then sat and played songs for folks for an hour or so after that appleboy was the only other person who did song, I had never heard him sing ... what a gorgeous voice.

It was a great time. I ended up staying at guppiecat's house friday night.

There were panels saturday, all with Susan and Sandy. More fun. We had a small circle last night. It ran down pretty early and I headed back home to sleep in my own bed around 12:30. It's been a great couple of days.

Mahtowa next weekend.
The joyful day!

A fun ending to the weekend

I was asleep when my friend Isaac called. I ran off to Boheme and I'm glad I did. It was a high energy show and the audience was great ... just great. My right hand started slowing down in the last song, but I made it. WAY too much guitar playing this weekend and it's been great.
