I had a great time playing and recording with Jamie Hayes in New Orleans a couple of weeks ago. Our first day of recording was at a great studio called the Music Shed and the next at another cool studio called Fudge Studios. I got to work with some great players including Shane Theriot (Guitars), Guthrie Trapp (Guitar and Mandolin), Travis McNabb (Drums) and Tom Drummond (Producer). We played a fun concert with Jamie also at French Quarter Fest. Lots of fun.
I played another gig (which was recorded) with Gunnelpumpers at Reggies Music Joint on the south side of Chicago last Thursday. What a cool venue.
I got to lead a discussion with the Chicago Theater Musicians Association for a music business class at DePaul University last night which was also fun.
Working continues to be an open-ended run at the Broadway Playhouse. Great show and great band. Nice gig!
Last month, I also celebrated my 16th year as a PADI scuba instructor.
