Good Week

I’ve been busy.  More than 20 gigs this month and it’s been one of the busiest I’ve had in several years.  It feels good to be working.  My trio, The City Champs, played five shows together in a week, with tonight’s being our last one for September.  It was a wedding and we had a blast.  The room was tiny with a tall ceiling and hardwood floor, so we had to keep the volume really low.  It’s the first time we’ve had to play like that together in a while, but no one complained and the music we made was good.  I was proud to be sitting behind those drums, listening and vibing with my band mates, Joe and Al.  Really good time.

The Champs have a brand new album (yes, that means a record made of vinyl) entitled, The Set-Up, which is set for release on November 2nd and we will be touring in support.
