This, my friends, was described as the “Grandaddy of All Pro Jams”.  Only the best of the best dare to step foot on THAT stage.

The gauntlet was thrown.  Guess who was there to scoop it up? 

Tonight, I will place my name in that proverbial bowl for the reaping with Randy Sherrod (bass) and the Doyle “Twins of Doom” rounding out the foundation.  (The last time I sang for them was for a saving grace at a funeral.  People saw.)

So, ya know, ain’t skeered.

It is advisable to “git thar earlee”.

I’ve been busy making music.  

Woodshedding.  It comes to me in my life like I’m with child.  The symptoms can be  horrifyingly similar and I have to find a way to “birth” my music.  The process from itch to song is usually a few months. Now, I have brand new twins!  They’re in my phone and on my FB page.  I’m like one of those breastfeeding moms looking for attention.  Had to post my mutant children of a different frequency ASAP.  Go enjoy them.  There is no better vibration than analog human music.  Go get you some of that goodness.

Speaking of that,  thanks to my real followers!  Not one “like” but I go out and people know more about my life than me! 

Speaking of going out,

Had the great pleasure to stumble on a Rockstar Reunion.  Note: I was not counting myself as one of said rockstars, geez.  I can’t drop names because (Jeff Doyle), I might not remember all of them (Randy), then people get mad (Batman), and start thinking I’m all stuck up (Wayne Cain), (Val), (Carol), (Maria), (Gerardo), (that tall guy playing pool), (Byron…)

…and you know how sensitive I am.  Wouldn’t want anyone thinking that somehow the world would crumble if I thought I was stuck up.  Because that just isn’t so.  

I prefer the term “accomplished”.

Judas Priestex.  The ones to watch.

That’s Carol on vocals.  

Monster voice.  Great stage presence!  I had to shake her hand.  She didn’t seem pleased.  I didn’t care.  Y’all know me.  FYI: MOST TO ALL lead singers hate me.  Most people in general hate me.  Well, not guys. Well, until they try to cross me…digression.

They know the competition even when I’m off of the stage game for a minute.  Recon…

So, yeah, I was an assistant Bouncer for a few while Batman took care of trouble in the parking lot.  I was carding the honeys, bust in’ a few heads inside.  Totally in my element, dude.  People saw.  PEOPLE SAW!  

Hard at work, President Trump.  Happy to be a cog in that wheel.

Speaking of being a slacker blogger…

I promise to work harder.  Promise.  Still need to tackle some projects on the Homefront that may keep me ocupado but I PROMISE to post more often.

Ms. Bliss will be at Boozehounds next Saturday.  She needs no formal introduction.

But then, neither do I.

Beauty AND brains.  This Florida native is already making waves in our big little Say Town.  Tune in to KENS 5 to check her out.

Wayne Wilson graced the first post of the launch of Where To Go 210.  Imagine my surprise when I found out I worked with his lovely wife!  She gave me a card and a heads up on this week’s San Antonio Fanzine post for date night, Friday December 16th, 2016.  

Where: The Lion and the Rose (The Rim)
When: 8:00 – 11:00
Gastro-Meter: The food is supposedly off-the-charts good!  Ye olde English Pub fare.

I’ll be there, plying Wayne’s wife with drinks and singing along.  Hope to see you there, too.  Find me, say wonderful things about this blog, and I might buy you a pint.

Art Snow and his crew will be at Texas Burgers Brews & Blues.  Show starts at 7:30.

Yes. Original music is alive and well in this little big SAYTOWN.  If you are hoping to clean out your heart cockles with some pleasantly unique frequencies, then Main Street is the place to be.  You will begin traveling on another plane of existence after listening to their vibe.  Really.

Any excuse to get to the Blue Star is one that may be deemed as “good”.  The Halcyon is the icing on top of said goodness.  Coffee + drinky-poos = 💘.
