Its been brought to my attention that I need to update my blog. Once again I have let down my faithful readers, both of you! I’ve made this blog a special place to post updates after shows. Perhaps a little behind the scenes look into the wonderful world of all the drumming I’m doing. Not to down play the gigs I have been playing lately, but the blog posts and pictures from said gigs would be redundant. I guess I should approach this more like the Texas weatherman. Even though its hot every damn day and it never rains, he still has to report the news.
Lately I have picked up a ton of gigs from my good friend Steve Garcia and his bands of pick pockets who call themselves “Not the Rachels”. These gigs are always a blast and are never short of an interesting night. They mostly take place at Rookies in the Woodlands. This is Steves home on Saturday night and I’m happy to get invited over to play some music and watch TV at his place. On occasion I’ll fill in on other nights with Not the Rachles but this other guy, I wont use his real name, lets call him Drian Bavis, gets first pick. PSH! No but really, I have to thank him for the gigs. Lately it seems my best gigs fall off of his plate at dinner. Its how I got introduced to Woodlands Point and Steve. I love Drian and his pink drums…anyway!!!
There will be a few gigs coming shortly that will be blog material. One of which is with the Daniel Pratt Band. I cant remember his old drummers name..odd. We are playing a great benefit show at WoodsEdge Church Sept 30th to help our good friend Zack Jones and his family! I highly suggest you come out and support and phenomenal cause. The second show will be with Good Shive Low in Dallas. The album is finally done and pressed. Its time to play a few release shows. I’ll spend my entire weekend of Oct 14th in Dallas and the surrounding area helping them release this monster of an album. It’s really really good. You can find it streaming online if you want a sample. Hit up my Facebook, they are on there..give it a listen.
So there it is! Leave some replies. Tell me how much you love Good Shive Love. Let me know that Daniel Pratt once beat you at beach volleyball. Have you ever seen Drian Bavis’s pink drums? Let me know! Do you miss Paris Green and want to write us a blank check to play at your next Catalina wine mixer? Want me to blog more nonsense type stuff or stick to the shows worth blogging only? I can tell you this..google sends more people my way about my tattoos than they do about my drumming. Should I post pictures of my elephant tattoo?
