I'm certain no one is reading my blog, which allows me to write anything I want. BUT—just in case, here's a snapshot of the summer:
Enjoying performing with David Hawkins, who, although he lives in Pittsburgh, still travels back "home" where the love is...though my Hellhound days are over, I still enjoyed playing with Terry Moran and Phil Goldman in July...Two—count 'em—two DBUTs gigs, playing in my favorite ukulele band ever...performed with Christina Trulio and Bob Hasty.
But mostly my focus has been my solo gig. Ah, if only I could sing. But you can't have everything, so I continue pursuing a solo career with my lead acoustic played to tracks that I produce in my studio. Always enjoy playing at Posy's...played Curry Hut in Highwood, played twice at the Lake Bluff Farmers Market. It's fun, but it's a bit lonely because I love playing with other musicians. Unfortunately that's a moving target and often borderline unsatisfying because of my tastes, preferences and expectations. So my guitar is my voice, and I work on it tirelessly.
The Bill Buczinsky "Buzz" album is complete. All that's left is the CD pressing. And the CD release party in October.
It's early August and the gig calendar is sparse, which means it's time to get back to the writing desk and make up more stuff.
I don't really blog. Or at least I haven't. Maybe I'll just put some stuff here that I wouldn't mind sharing. Like Tommy Emmanuel.
