After many years in the biz, I've learned to not get annoyed with stuff.  Some people just won't ever get it together.  Nothing you can do about it.  Of course, I still get annoyed.  I'm a performer, sometimes I'm a booking agent, sometimes I'm booking talent for venues and festivals, I lead bands, I'm a sideman in bands, I have solo projects, I do sound, I run sound, I stage hand.  There are some things that just should always be done. If these things are not done - you're basically telling everyone else - "this how to do stupid shit."

Bands:  Websites are a must.  And no, soundcloud and bandcamp are NOT websites.  Social media links are a must.  Some kind of pic or graphic of your band available in hi and low res are a must.  Youtube videos of a LIVE performance are a must - doesn't have to be high quality, cell phone videos actually will suffice.  If you don't have AT LEAST that going on - please, please, please don't try and get gigs and wonder why you're not getting them.  You have nothing to show anyone about who you are, what you sound like, and how many people care about you.   Without these things - you will never get a gig.  And the crappier they are, the less likely anyone will care about you or book you.    

For those of you that don't fall into the above paragraph:  You MUST promote your show.  When I see bands that I book at a venue who don't promote the show  - I will never, never, never, never, ever hire them at anything I have booking control over ever.  I recently had a band who asked for promotion advice, which I gave.  A few months later, I gave them a show at a venue.  And when I looked at their website (reverbnation - which DOES count as a website and it has some very nice promotion features on it)  it didn't have the gig I gave them on it.  It did have the gig they were playing for the following night.  Now, I knew how much they were making the following night. I was paying them more.  I even had a kicker added as an incentive for them to bring more people out so they could make even more money.  I provided them a sound tech and PA - the other gig was DIY sound.  And the venue I put them in was MUCH nicer and bought a full page ad in the local weekly to advertise all the music that week. The other venue - NADA.  I did social media posts, put it on the venue FB, etc... what did they do?  Not a damn thing.  Was I pissed?  Yes. Am I ever going to book them or help them again?  Nope.  Why?  Because some people will never get it together.  That's not just dumb, it's rude.  That kind of behavior shows me a level of ineptitude that defies description.   I'm game for helping people out, I'm game for giving people a chance.  But this was literally giving me, the venue, and all the employees there the finger. 

Other band rules: be professional: be early for set-up and load it, carry a few spare items, help your band-mates with their gear, GET THE FUCK OFF STAGE QUICKLY, never ever ever go over your set time - unless you're told to.  When the stage mangers says last song - that means wrap it up and GET THE FUCK OFF STAGE QUICKLY, it does NOT mean go into an epic 15 minutes closing medley complete (I shit you not, this happened two days ago) with a drum solo.  Now, not only will I never book you, now I personally don't like you and will tell other people to NOT book you because you're an asshat.  Bring merch to sell.  Be clear with your soundman: more vocal in the monitor, it's too tinny, I need a DI box, etc... 

Sound techs:  Coil extra cable by the mic stand;believe it or not, some bands aren't going to use you're exact mic placement.  Power and signal cables are not friends.  Don't put them together if you can help it.  Don't run power and signal cables where bands are going to be stepping.  Gaff tape - yes, it costs money, that's why you get paid. Make a safe space for your bands and save your gear from dumb-asses.   Be faster.  Help the bands off and on if you're not running new lines.  After sound check, while the band is playing, pay close attention to them to see if they are trying to get you to adjust monitor mixes.  Ask them.   Mute the channels instantly after the last song.  And don't bring boards that don't have working channels or mics missing grills or stands that don't work.

Stage Hands:  learn the sound tech rules, lay out cables in a clean and orderly fashion.  Bundle them together and tape them down.  Your stage should be photo ready it's so well laid out.  Make sure extra cable is coiled by all mics, DIs and monitors - stuff moves.  Be ready for extra mics.

--------------

Most of this stuff can be done by a ten year old.  Be polite, be professional, be smart.  It's really not hard.

A review in for Cosmic Dust "The Dust Also Rises." This was just published in the LA Jazz Scene.
 
While fusion (the combination of the sound, volume and rhythms of rock with jazz improvisation) dominated the 1970s and then became overshadowed by other approaches during the next decade, it is still very much a part of the current jazz scene. The electronics have become more sophisticated as have the rhythms, and the best fusion groups always have a generous amount of inventive solos.
 
Jim Templeton, an excellent pianist and an important educator in the Pacific Northwest, founded Cosmic Dust in 1980. The current version of the fusion band consists of Templeton on keyboards, guitarist Mike Doolin, Gary Edighoffer on tenor, flute and other reeds, electric bassist Sam Hallam, and drummer Charles Neal. They perform ten originals with spirit and constant creativity.
 
The music is consistently unpredictable, even when it hits a relaxing groove as on “Circus.’ The melodies, chord changes and solos are quite original and at no time does Cosmic Dust sound closely based on any other fusion group. All of the musicians are strong soloists (Edighoffer is a standout on flute and tenor), the ensembles are tight yet loose and, even with its rockish moments, the jazz content is high. “Walkin’ On Out” (which sounds briefly like “Chameleon” in spots), “Blues #7” and the happily funky “Bones For Kitty” are among the highpoints of this colorful set.
 
Cosmic Dust is a fusion group well worth checking out.

NEW NEWS:

And so begins a new year - 2018. I must confess I'm a little sad to see 2017 go.  It was an epic year.  Here's hoping for an even better 2018!  It's certainly off to a big start.  LOTS of new videos up for your enjoyment!  There are over 1,000 videos on my Youtube channel. There is some crazy, awesome, entertaining stuff on there - click it and get lost for days!

DJ Law: Dr. Wax & Sax has a new video out - Coming in Hot.  Enjoy electro-sax and DJ Law scratching for a fully improvised live jam.

GrooveTronXwww.groovetronx.com You can stream our new LIVE release "Electric Aesthetic" on Spotify.   A new LIVE video here and a new video for Spanish Eyes from Bright Lights Big City. I heard a great description of our group at Tacoland over the weekend - smooth jazz with a dance beat.

Noah Peterson: Unscheduled StreetJelly concerts are about to be resumed.  No point in announcing them - they're secret, special, and unrehearsed.  Gotta follow the FB page for notices.  Jazz gigs - every Third Thursday - The Noah Peterson Quartet is resurrected at Frank, 1150 S. Alamo, 10pm start.  Come see me at the Coffee Festival on Satuday - 11:15am for some electric-solo sax wizardy. I've got three new videos up -Two Ports Down and Road Song from Sax-a-Loop-a-Liscious, and The Vastness of Space from Ambient Space Sounds.  The Vastness of Space is a great track - I hope you'll check it out. The entire Ambient Space Sounds turned out to be a rare and unplanned gem in the catalog.  Sax-a-Loop-a-Liscious is probably my least promoted effort ever and it's a great little feature for many of my original songs.

West Kings Highway: We've got our first Fiesta Medal in and for sale! There is a limted number for sale - we've already made quite a dent in our inventory. sold a Shows on Friday nights - First Friday at Southtown 101, other Fridays at Sanchos. www.westkingshighway.com.

A new video for Irie Impressions: Skyjuice - reggae from Alton Thomas.

Three new videos from Widespread Noise: Funk WarpThe Darkness Rises, and Grinding the Gears of Time.  Noise, Noise, and more Noise.

And the first video for Tip the Band "Bark" featuring the late, great James Miller on Vocals and bass. You've got me on washboard and backing vocals, and folk legend Dick Weissman on guitar for a down-home and kinda dark Americana/Folk-Blues track.  Beer Drinkin' Songs on Spotify - a fun bunch of songs.

A new video for The Reverend Evan Hadley for the sexy romantic pop tune - The Last Thing On My Mind.  I'm on sax blowing a sexy, Sade-styled, pseudo-solo under the smooth crooning of Evan.

A new Burlesqeue featurette video for La Chichada's "Jo Jo Dancer." Probably don't want to let the kids watch this video.  I don't really like to go this riske, but it is La Chichada and it does fit the band quite well.  

A new video from Richard Thurman "Christmas Groove." This is a R&B/bluesy jam with a little sax from yours truely. This is off the brand new Holiday compilation from a lot of my new Texas friends called Christmas for Everyone.

Going deep in the vault from: a new video for SCDG - Mind all Mine, Luna -Flower Heart.

NEW NEWS:

Last month I said it was back to the grind - and grind is what happened. Many new videos, new releases, web-updates and more - here's the highlights. But before any of that!!!!  

DOWNTOWN LOCAL SOUNDS - a new concert series for locals and visitors to the great city of San Antonio, TX.  This Sunday afternoon concert series presents the finest bands of San Antonio.  It's family friendly, all ages, FREE, and presents music that represents the spirit and sound of our town. Food, beverages, and music are available at the Arneson River Theatre at historic La Villita on the downtown Riverwalk, the number one tourist destination in the state of Texas.  Come down for local culture and the beauty of La Villita to some tasty, local cuisine and enjoy the sounds of your town.  Oct 1st, 2-6pm, FREE Arneson Theatre, La Villita in San Antonio.

Dr. Wax & Sax: The collaboration between me and DJ Law and our debut realase "Electrostatic" available for download at CD Baby. This is a live album! We've got new videos up: All The Good Things and Gimmie Some More. You can stream Electrostatic, over and over on Spotify.  And Dr. Wax himself, aka DJ Law, has a new single out - House This Sucka

GrooveTronX: The website has been flushed out a little: www.groovetronx.com. And the Bandcamp page is up. Our residency dates at Halcyon are all published.  2nd and 4th Thursdays, 9 to 11pm, free shows for all the people that want to get down with some livetronica-chill-grooves.  New videos: Saturday NightTap Dance, and Sea Shell - all set to some fun dance videos. And you can stream "Bright Lights Big City" on Spotify.

O.M.N.I.  The third release is still under production.  But we did get a sweet house remix done by Mike13 for Captain Funktion which was released in the United Kingdom on Revolucion Records.  Here's the Spotify link for the 2nd album O.M.N.I.   

West Kings Highway: We're back on the horse and making efforts to tighten things up, get some new covers worked into the set and we're going to do our first Fiesta Medal!  We figured since there's never any open tables on the roof and we're getting a lot of people taking video that we should raise the bar for ourselves.  We're looking forward to a lot of new things for near future.  www.westkingshighway.com

Widespead Noise: Widespread Noise is a noise/ambient/avant garde studio project that features technology and non-mainstream music.  The first recording is going to be available soon - please check out "Gongs in Space" on youtube.   You can even visit the Facebook page for gear reviews - and some new reviews are posted!

FUN FACTS:

Top streamed tracks on Spotify according to CDBaby for the month: Ambient Space Sounds reclaims it's throne with all 5 top spots.  

This month's most watched Youtube videos. I think things have finally changed for the youtube channel - no more do the old war horses rule (although a couple are in the top 10). Subscribers are up and the new videos are getting watched.   

  1. GrooveTronX - Tap Dance - with 2X as many views as our 2nd place video, this new arrival features fun dancing.
  2. The Reverend Evan Hadley "Superstar" - this blast from the past features a lovely young lady in a bikini with a selfie stick.  Kinda not a big surprise it's getting watched.  And yes, it was a cheap tactic to get views. Although it does thematically fit the lyrics, kinda. 
  3. Noah Peterson - Ain't Nuthing But a Dog - always nice to see puppies and doggies!  This is a wholesome, family friendly video - not like #2 at all. You should watch it, and sing along.  
  4. GrooveTronX Saturday Night - Live at Sanchos - GrooveTronX grabs another spot with a dancing video.  These are actually pretty good.
  5. GrooveTronX "The Ride" - last month, this "technically" didn't get to place, but had enough views to land the #3 spot.  It hangs on to #5.  GrooveTronX has ruled the video charts for September!

NEW NEWS:

Back to the grind!   New videos, new releases, and more.  Now that I've literally come to "the end of the road" things have changed.  The office is redone, reorganized, and set-up to rock and roll.  I literally finished it yesterday.  I threw out years of stuff - booking resources, redundant sheet music, contact cards, promo info... It's nice to clear some shelf space and get focused.    Of course, there was that disruption of Hurricane Harvey which set things back a week or so, but it was only a delay and nothing of consequence here in San Antonio.  That being said...

Dr. Wax & Sax: A new collaboration between me and DJ Law, the turntable Jedi himself.  We've got a brand, spanking new release out called "Electrostatic" - you can buy the downloads at CD Baby by clicking here.  This is a live jam with DJ Law scratching the turntables and me on sax with looping and sampled electronics.  It's simply delicious.   We've also got our first video up on Youtube - Hit Me.  And you can stream the entire recording, Electrostatic, over and over on Spotify.

GrooveTronX: You'll notice we dropped the hyphen.  Can't really have that in our new web url -  www.groovetronx.com TWe're settling on calling ourselves nujazz, that seems to be the correct genre for us amongs all the hip kids.  And our residency dates at Halcyon are all published.  2nd and 4th Thursdays, 9 to 11pm, free shows for all the party people that want to get down with some livetronica-chill-grooves.  And we have a new video out -  it's set to a recording from a live show: The Ride - check it out for good jams and hot babes dancing.

Noah Peterson: I've got some winery work coming up in the next few weeks.  If you know me, you know how much I love that!  I'm also pretty excited about the new show I'm rolling - I Sing the Sax Electric. Here's a video from the NW LoopFest.  

O.M.N.I.  The third release is coming along.  I got a handful of rough mixes from Zach, but we're nowhere near done.  In the meantime, please check out our video "Captain Function Vs. the Brainwashed Hubron Elbards." Tune into the CDBaby Page for the narrative in the Space Adventures of Captain Funktion. Here's the Spotify link for the Newly released 2nd album O.M.N.I on Spotify.   

West Kings Highway: We've been sidelined for the past two weeks because of weather, so we're trying to get back on the horse this Friday night at Whiskey Business at the Witte Museum, and the rest of the month has us back at Sancho's for our usual Friday Night Fiesta!

Widespead Noise: It's all about the new. Widespread Noise is a noise/ambient/avant garde studio project that features technology and non-mainstream music.  The first recording is in the works - but there's a brand new video up to get your ears accustomed to what's coming, please check out "Gongs in Space" on youtube.  This is an open, collaborative project that isn't going to have a defined sound. You can even check out theFacebook page for gear reviews.

FUN FACTS:

Top streamed tracks on Spotify according to CD Baby for the month: Looks like O.M.N.I's reign of the top 5 was brief.  Ambient Space Sounds takes back it's customary spot on top with Ethan's Blues pooping in at number 3.  

This month's most watched Youtube videos. This has been a wacky month. The usual suspects are getting clobbered by new videos, which is unusual for my channel. Dr. Wax and Sax, in a week, slides into number 1.  I Sing the Sax Electric debuts at number 2. The Boomerang Factory tour hangs on to a top 5 spot depsite being 2 years old and not even owned by Mike Nelson anymore...Luthor Maggot debutes at number 3 showing us that ambient music is more popular than anyone thinks it is - and you should have heard the into to his set...hilarious. And a shocking 5th place showing from Psychics with Bogobo...I actually can't believe it.   

Time for a disclaimer.  The top watched videos for the month this isn't always exact.  Two reasons: 1. it ain't always the end of the month when I put this out.  So I base it on the last 30 days.  2.  It takes Youtube two days to count videos, verifiy watches, and "post them" in the analytic count for new videos. This generally never matters - except for the video ofGrooveTronX "The Ride" live at Sanchos.  Which was posted last night and currently has enough views to put it at number three although it's technically not even in the chart listing.  Can't wait to see what this looks like next month.  Click some videos and enjoy!

NEW NEWS:

BandVanAdventure 2017: The Final Adventure.  Phew....all done and it was a doozy.  While I will still make the occasional "out-of-town" music trip, this is the end of my touring days.   It was a grand adventure over all of the years.  I played a lot of shows, sold a lot of CDs, drove through spetacular scenery, spent freezing nights in the van (and hot, sweaty ones too).  From Bellingham, WA to Boca Raton, FL - mountains, plains, deserts, and beaches...there was no place I wouldn't go.  I just want to say thank you to all the people who came out to see me, all the venues that hosted me, all the press and radio, all my friends and family for the support.  I couldn't have done any of it without you.

Even though I've been a "one-man-band" sometimes it felt like I had an army behind me.  Thank you for coming to the shows, streaming the tunes, watching the videos, buying merch and music, and hanging out on social media - it's been great.  I started the "Solo Sax Sessions" in 2011.  I did my first gig at Starbucks on August 1, six years ago.   Since then I've been criss-crossing the country playing hundreds of shows, I moved to Texas, I put on LoopFests in multiple cities within 5 states, spent two years as a paid columnist for loopinglive.com, and put out all sorts of fun content including Noah and Hideki's Big Adventure (you haven't lived until you spend 8 days in a van with a friend whom who don't really have a common language.)

It's been amazing, difficult, exhausting, and more. It's impossible to really describe one of these adventures let alone sum up all my touring. But it's time to sink my teeth into Texas and focus on the business here.  Thanks again everyone - my BandVanAdventures were an adventure of a lifetime. The memories and friends I have from them are priceless.

O.M.N.I.  While we are at work on the 3rd release, please check out our video "Captain Function Vs. the Brainwashed Hubron Elbards." Tune into the CDBaby Page for the narrative in the Space Adventures of Captain Funktion. Here's the Spotify link for the Newly released 2nd album O.M.N.I on Spotify.   

West Kings Highway: is literally rocking and rolling, the band is getting tight, our Friday nights at Sancho's are hot, hot, hot!  We're getting more festival work and private parties.  Come see us!

GrooveTron-X: The hippest electronic act in Texas has a new residency starting in August.  The 2nd and 4th Thursday will find us at Halcyon, 9 to 11pm, free shows for all the party people that want to get down with some livetronica chill grooves.  And we've got some plans to expand our web presence.  Hopefully we'll have that coming together in the very near future. 

Noah Peterson: Things are changing for me as well.  My eldest brother Travis sent me some gear for Christmas, specifically a KAOSS KP3+Samper/effects processor. I've also upgraded my loop station to the RC-300, changed my "bass" pedal to a POG2 for extra, beefy goodness, and put Option Knobs on my delay pedal for hands-free adjustable controls.  This has led to the development of a new show that I call "I Sing the Sax Electric." I will still do the "Solo Sax Sessions" here and there, but I've got a very different electronic music show for you all to enjoy.  Stay tuned for videos and recordings.  Speaking of recordings - I've got some noise stuff coming out as well as live tracks with the original DJ LAW, a collaborator on my "Bump" CD.

Well... I'm on a bit of a blog-roll.  There's some extras on my instagram account: @petersonentertainment

The landscape on the drive was every bit as awesome as I remember.  It was amazing to watch.  Even better to not be in a hurry.  I rolled into Lava Hot Springs fairly early.  It was a beautiful morning and a great day for a soak in the pools.  The hot pools are several pools of differing temps.  The hottest at 112 degrees.  Too hot for me.    I chilled in the 102-105 pool with some shade and enjoyed the silence and looking at the mountains around me.    I mostly had the place to myself.  Although a half dozen other people trickled in later on.  Two of them were a Japanese couple.  The man was by himself at one end of the pool I was in, his wife in another pool.  After a bit he started chanting - it sounded like Buddhist chants.   And then he started singing.  That was a few minutes of some lovely stuff. 

I stayed as long as I could stand it and decided to head over to the hotel to set-up for the gig.  Usually, this gig is an intimate dinner concert in a tiny room with fantastic food.  This time, it was all of that except a winemakers pairing complete with 5 courses meal and a sold out room.   It was great.  All of it.  

I was there several hours early, set-up some extra lighting, got everything loaded in, sound checked, and ready to go.  Took a nap, showered, and had a great set. 

I have recently upgraded my loop station from the RC-50 to the RC-300.  There's some changes in the operation which I don't have down "cold" yet.  But it's pretty simple for the most part.  There is still a loop length feature that I'm not liking but I think I have a preset set incorrectly. I'll figure that out when I'm not in transit, or maybe before the show tonight.  I'm in town early again.  I digress... a big part of the loop station upgrade was to change things up.  I wanted to add some new gear to change my sound up, really affect my tone, and do different things.  I feel like I've been stagnate with the loop station and show for quite some time.  My brother gave my a KAOSS KPS+ for Christmas and I've been using it with my duo GrooveTron-X. I had been messing around with it and the RC-50 seeing how I can use them in my looping show - it was something on my mind to do and I decided to stop waiting and jump in.   

I took advantage of my early arrival and hooked up everything.   Got it all working in short order.  Everything worked perfectly.  Really enjoyed stretching out with the tech, making some new jams, expanding some old ones, and worked a bunch of the old show in between.  Felt good, played good, didn't struggle with the board at all.  Really felt like I had a direction again for the first time in a long time.  Of course, on the drive today I was rethinking my set-up; I'm going to reduce back to one mic.  I don't need two - although that does add an order problem if I'm going to sample vocals with the KP3+ whilst running a long loop on the 300.  Oh well, I can always add that back in later.  It's too early for that to be an issue at the moment.   Plus I want to use my vocal effects through the loop station.  Other things are cables.  I need to take a look what I've got going on and get rid of some excess length.  I've got a lot of crap dangling around.  And I'd like to NOT use my DI boxes.  But we'll see how that plays out.  Guitar Center Portland - here I come...

After the show Alonzo (chef and my buddy!) served me up selections from the winemakers dinner: wild halibut, foie gras, some other kind of duck-meat awesomeness, vegetables, salad, and a wicked, but small, dessert.  Had a nice chat with another hotel guest.  I finished packing up and headed over to the Blue Moon for the Thursday night jam.    Nobody was there.  None of the usual suspects.  I chatted up Cliff, somehow he and I had managed to not meet over the past years of my coming through town.  Cliff and I had some drinks, some conversation, jammed a few tunes and I was in bed 'round midnight.  

The next morning, I heard a woman's voice.  And I was like, hmmm... can't be my wife, she's in Texas and I can't remember where I am.  I opened my eyes and realized I was in the hotel and that was just someone talking in the hallway.    I got cleaned up and headed to the lobby for breakfast and chatted with the owner and a few others.    Wasn't too long before it was time to hit the road.  Back on the freeway I went.  A nice, uneventful drive.   In Eastern Idaho, I really get the sense of driving on the surface of a planet.  It just feels like you're on the side of rock, hurtling through space.   

For the past 6-7 years I've been coming through this part of the country in October.  It's nice to see it in better weather.  Although all of the mountains still have a little snow on the tops.  Rivers are full, everything is green. 

Looking forward to some glorious weather tonight and a fun show!

Wow.... 2nd entry.  Suffice to say BandVanAdventures indeed.

Met up with my old buddy Dick Weissman.  Always good to see him and hear what he has going on.  As usual, he had a stack of magazines for me, and a new addition of his music business book.  We caught up as much as we could, exchanging news and off I went.

Next stop, my old pal Mark.  Always good hanging out with old friends.   Just chilled for a bit, caught up on the adventures since we last spoke, talked about middle-aged man stuff.  The day was hot and sunny, with a dry stillness in the area as the thundershowers barely touched with us with their edges.    I head off to the gig with an ETA about an hour fifteen before down beat.    And then...Houston, we have a problem.  I notice the clock isn't on and car has lost some power.  I check the radio, the radio ain't on.  I'm like, "uh-oh" and start turn everything off.  I have an idea what the problem is and start looking for a place to get it take care of.  Not really seeing anything.  I start thinking well... what if it's something else, but related to what I think it is.  Better find an Autozone instead.    Pull one up on the GPS, about 3.5 miles away.  Awesome.    My car is losing more power, and the blinkers are acting funny.   Literally as I pull into the parking lot, I coast into a parking spot.  And I thanked Jesus. 

So I call the venue and say hey, I'm probably gonna be late.  I think I can fix it, but not quite sure.  She says call back with an update.  I text Mark, he starts heading over for a rescue.  First thing I do is address what I think the problem is. Not, next it's probably the battery.  The Autozone clerk, (who was (the entire crew actually) AWESOME about getting me back on the road, said, that's one of our batteries, I'll be it's still under warranty.  Sure was!  Pulled the old one, came up with the new on as Mark rolled in.  He helped me finish the job, pack-up, clean-up and get back up the road.  Called the venue, they said, a little late, no problem, come on up!

And so I did.  And some friends showed up as well!  There was a nice crowd in there.  The show was difficult.  I was mentally unprepared as instead of being an hour and fifteen minutes early to set-up, eat, sound-check and plan my set, I'm not late and scrambling without trying to rush things too much.   Had  a hard time really working the board.  It was my first time with my boots on.  I was literally tripping over things.  I had several "missteps" and wrong channel assignments, which changed how the board behaved.  (I JUST upgraded from the RC-50 to the RC-300 and there are some changes that really matter.)    It was trip-up after trip-up.   After awhile I just stopped the tunes and just started doing jams.  That worked much better.  The flow was better, the vibe was better, everything relaxed and started to fall into place.   The tip bucket was nicely packed and off I went into the night.

Since I was already up the mountain, I took a backroad to the interstate.  Not too long after I started west I came through one of the first passes and the were two or three police cars, a tow truck, and the remains of a very large, dead animal.  So big it could have been a moose.  Huge.   I drove for a bit and decided to call it a night. 

Up the next morning and hop back on the freeway for what should be a spectacular drive.   I have the radio on and the local news come on saying, they have identified the man killed last night in the car wreck and such and such a location.  He was ejected from his Jeep after he struck and Elk on such and such pass.  His car went over the edge after striking the Elk and he was thrown from the Jeep after going over the edge.  The Elk was also killed.     What I drove past the previous night was the cops loading up the dead Elk and starting to deal with the wreck.

As I drove the the rest of Colorado and Southern Utah, I listened to pop radio and silence.  It's nice to be alone sometimes.   Had some great reflection time, enjoyed the radio, greatly enjoyed the drive.    Got into the SLC area for some computer time.  Always stuff to be done...  Looking forward to a great gig tomorrow night and seeing some of the locals in Idaho!

 

Okay... we'll see how long lasts.  My attempts at regular blogging are dismal failures.  I'm okay with that.  But it's the last BandVanAdventure - anything can happen.

I got to drive a route during the day that I don't believe I've ever done in the day.  It was always a night, during thunderstorms that covered all of West Texas.  I don't particularly like this drive.   However... it was beautiful.  The changing  terrain and plants for San Antonio to Hill Country, to the rocks, to the range.   I got a couple amazing sunset pics as I was skirting around the edge of a thunderstorm - posted it on instagram.  And then I reached the "edge" of the storm.  And what I thought was the storm breaking up, was the the tail end of a giant thunderstorm that looked like it was on it's way north from covering all of West Texas.   This means high wind pushing everybody all over the freeway, lots of rain that pushes everybody all over the freeway, and golf ball sized hail that I feared was going to shatter my windshield.  It was the edge.  I just hit the southernmost tip of it heading into New Mexico and followed all the way to I-125 where it didn't go past the mountains.    Along the way, fireflys danced in the ditches by the highway.  

Coming down the mountain, there was a truck.  Going 20. Noooo...15mph.  It was a construction zone.  Nothing to be done by enjoy that long, slow, trip down the pass.  Fortunately, I was in no hurry and didn't have to pee. 

Turns out too of my buddies who couldn't hang out, now can.  I get into town early, catch up on the email, and bam,  blog time.    First day was awesome with what seemed to be about 3.5 minutes I could have done without. 

I've posted a few youtube videos of myself that are getting a more positive reaction than I anticipated.  That's always good the old ego...and do I mean old.  Anyways...

My wife reads my blog.  And the she comments to me on it.  She's probably going to get mad at me for writing this. I love you baby.

Coming up - hanging out with buds, first tour gig.

O.M.N.I. has been very active.  The 2nd video is up: Elite Soldiers of the Berdan Army.  Tune into the CDBaby Page for the narrative in the Space Adventures of Captain Funktion.  Other news: 5 days and many hours of recording at Chai-Fi Studios in Brooklyn, New York has birthed what will eventually be a dub-tastic release from O.M.N.I. with new twists: synth-pop, vocals, and sexy jams all added to the electro-dub experience.  It was an intense bit of time with O.M.N.I. partners Zach and Ben cranking out tracks.

Right now I'm in the middle of the One Human Band Festival in Pittsburgh, PA. This experience is the brain-child of vocal looper Mike Why who has custom assembled a line-up of amazing musical talent: myself, Butch Ross, Dixie Duncan, Brian Fitzy, Kaila Mullady, SaulPaul, Tonee Violincelloops, Jean-Paul De Roover, Mike Why, and some local artists all are delivering 5 days of performances around the city.  http://www.OneHumanBands.com  Lots of shows through the weekend are coming up!

For all the gear heads, here's a fun wrap up video from NAMM that I made featuring some very interesting electronic gear.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlfuig4mJbk

Wow... what a year so far.  Keeping up on Blog entries was something I was seriously committed to.  And then my schedule exploded.  I've been so busy I've literally been so tired I can't sleep.   But Fiesta is now here.  The next two weeks are going to be intense.  Zero sleep, I've backed off on the shows that I normally do due to my commitment to the King William Fair and I'm still a little worried about time and duties, I've still got some shows, working on loopfests, two tours, and trying to keep my home maintained and my wife happy.  It's NOT an easy job. 

Somehow I've managed to stay on top of it all, get ALL my office work caught up, got web stuff fairly well under control, kinda ready for what's to come, and keeping on top of short term future projects.  Even getting caught up on band demos, listening, and prepping for shows.  I mean, I can even squeeze a blog entry out.  My office is so clean I feel physically assaulted by the lack of mess when I come in it.   Just a couple more things to do and it's next-gen ready.

Totally happy with my life, but unsatisfied with my performance, I can do better.  But not until I get some breathing room.  Once Fiesta is over and I get some time back...  I'm out on a limb right now and hanging on.  I'm GREATLY looking forward to putting the creative feet back into "go" mode.  I enjoy the logistics stuff and I'm pretty good at it, but I'm getting rusty on the creative side and feeling that need.  This is going to be an interesting year.... good things to come.

NEW NEWS:

It's hard to believe, but we're already a month into 2017.  Things are rolling along with The Plaza Club - we start our first events this month and have March and April filled with all sorts of musical good stuff. 

But wait, there's more!  The Paseo Del Rio aka The San Antonio Riverwalk Association - yes THAT Riverwalk - aka the number one tourist attraction in the state of Texas has brought on Peterson Entertainment, Llc to help out with a couple of events.  Our first event with them is the Paseo Del Rio Mardis Gras.

February 25th at the Arneson River Ampitheatre at La Villita will be the site for San Antonio's Mardis Gras celebration.  Peterson Entertainment, Llc has a stellar line-up put together for all kinds of jazzy fun!   Kicking off the celebration is the Jim Cullum Reunion Jazz Band at 1pm.  The original line-up from Jim Cullum's "Jazz at the Landing" is back to help the Riverwalk celebrate Mardis Gras in style.  Rising star and the king of smooth jazz in San Antonio, BillyRay Sheppard and his band, take the stage for a more contempoary take on America's classical music form "jazz." Local legend and West Side Horn saxophonist Henry Rivas will be doing strolling jazz on the backside of the ampitheatre in La Villita from 3 to 5pm.  During the Rio parade The Maria Williams Band will be on the barge crooning jazz standards and to all those out for a party on the Riverwalk.  And wrapping up the night, all the way from Dallas Texas is Zydeco Blanco delivering some real-deal accordion/rubboard powered zydeco.  We're very exctied to be putting this event on. 

I wanted to give D'Addario/Rico Reeds a huge thank you for providing me an artist pass for NAMM.  It was a very interesting trip - got to see some cool gear, old friends, and made some new ones!  Thank you Rico Reeds & D'Addario!

BANDS:

West Kings Highway is continuing it's Friday Night Residencies. The band is getting pretty tight.  If you haven't heard us in a while.  Come see us again.  We're a different beast!  Southtown 101 has us for Frist Fridays!  8-11pm and Sancho's most other Fridays from 7 to 9pm. www.westkingshighway.com

The Noah Peterson Trio - First show in a long time for my jazz groups is right around the corner. 

GrooveTron-X: Here's the newest thing: GrooveTron-X.  We're calling it "livetronica" - electronic music and live instruments.  It's a pretty fun little project. This is a rapidly developing group and we're very excited about it. Next performance is March 4th at Bang Bang Bar. Here's a clip from a recent show: GrooveTron-X Video

La Chichada:  The hiatus is over.  We're back for a couple of shows coming up.  Feb 24th - we're missing our drummer so we're masquerading as "Jo Jo Dancer" at Sancho's, and March 25th we're hosting a night at Jandro's on St. Mary's Strip.

Spotify playlists.  I wanted to remind y'all what we have and make it easy to add to YOUR playlist.

Tip the Band - Beer Drinking Songs. This is my first attempt at doing any lead singing. Although I don't do all the singing on this little record. My musical partners are the late Jim Miller, and folk lengend Dick Weissman (The Journeyman).  This trio puts guitars, banjo, bass, and washboard together for some folked-up, Americana, bluesy fun.  Funny lyrics about the life of a musician are to be found throughout; especially on songs like "I'm Broke, Busted" and "Tip the Band!"  And of course, it being February you have to listen to "I'm Heading Down to Mardis Gras."

River Barons - Things that Happenned.  This is a great alt-country/southern rock group that was the first band I joined in San Antonio.  And while I'm no longer in the band, I remain good friends with all of them and occasionally join the band for a jam or two at their gigs.  These are good guys and this EP rocks!  If you've got a hankering some soulful southern rock - this is it.

NEW VIDEOS FOR OLD MUSIC:  nada, nil, zlich.. still not quite the season for getting on these.  But I haven't forgotten! (Still doing loopfest videos!!!)

  4. Elegant Space Noise - Noah Peterson           (Ambient Space Sounds)
  5.  The Vastness of Space                          (Ambient Space Sounds)

Crazy how this is always the top streamed stuff. The tunes shuffle around for which is in what spot - but that's about it. The consistent popularity of this record on Spotify is a continuing mystery. 

This month's most watched Youtube videos: 

  1. 2016 NW LoopFest: Riley Tyrel Carter - Eulogy
  2. Los #3 Dinners - Take a Walk on the Wild Side
  3. 2016 Texas LoopFest: Deferlow
  4. Cosmic Dust - Journey
  5. DJ FlipFlop at NAMM

Riley Carter is a huge leader in video views this month.  A couple of the usual suspects with Los #3 Dinners and Cosmic Dust - those guys seem to always be bringing in the views.  Although it's nice to Derferlow pop in the top 5 with some pretty creative looping and DJ FlipFlop pops in at number 5 even though that video has just been up a week.  Kinda thinking he'll be back next month as well.

Greetings Loopers!

The Loopfest season is over and it was a great year.  Here’s the video
index for the 2016 Texas LoopFest.  (www.texasloopfest.com).

We moved the event inside to a smaller venue and live-streamed it.  I hope
some of you got to watch it.  The videos are all posted on youtube and
I’ve been promoting them on facebook.  As always, if you want to skip it
and get right to it – here’s the whole mess:

Texas LoopFest Collection
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hIvfP2BLcQ&list=PLjiWJF83CBilSNckraSDbOmA7TN1zyoct

This years artists were mostly from Texas and we were lucky to have some
out-of-staters as well as Cian from Mexico.   It’s really tough to pick
out exceptional performers from this year as everyone did a great job. 
James Sidlo was sublime with his ambient guitar work.  Butch Ross was
great performing songs with his mountain dulcimer, the duo Momentary
Gamelan Ensemble was fascinating as always, Lost Son is a personal
favorite of mine – I always enjoy his shows, Derferlow was a unexpected
treat as he whipped out video game controllers half-way through his set
and starting slicing loops like a crazed butcher, Breaking Light was
musically delightful, Daves Device never ceases to impress me with how
hard he works on his sets and considerable improvement from show to show, 
The Winkler had some pleasant audio surprises this year, Spookstina
brought performance art to a whole new level, Cian is clearly taking
things to a whole new level,  Troll Foot Frass brought funky fun down from
up North, Arte Sacre Atelier brought the noise, and Xandra Wong was
spectacular.    I hope you can watch something from all of them.    It was
a very special night.

We gave away some great pieces of gear from our sponsors, we had a great
time, and we did had a few technical trip-ups losing most of Cian’s set,
although I did manage to save about 9 minutes of it.

Here’s the index if you want to click and watch.  There’s some great stuff
in there.

NEW NEWS:

Happy New Year!  2016 was a great year for Peterson Entertainment, Llc and 2017 is shaping up to be even better.  Just to kick things off, we have landed our first corporate client in San Antonio:  we are now the music services provider for The Plaza Club.  We've started putting our roster of artists and musical contractors into The Plaza Club for Feb events and will be taking over more of their events in the coming weeks.  We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with them.

D'Addario is the parent company of Rico Reeds.  Rico Reeds is a sponsor of mine and they were kind enough to provide me with an artist pass to winter NAMM in Anaheim.  I'll be heading to California in a couple of weeks to check out new gear, meet some reps, and rub shoulders with some great musicians.  Thank you Rico Reeds & D'Addario!

BANDS:

West Kings Highway is continuing it's Friday Night Residency at Sancho's Cantina for 2017!  We'll be there most Fridays from 7 to 9pm.  Mostly with the 5 piece version, but occasional shows will feature some of our favorite drummers and, of course, the fabulous Henry C. (Johnny's dad) sitting in to jam with the band.  And Southtown 101 is going to continue to have us for Frist Fridays!  8-11pm  www.westkingshighway.com

The Noah Peterson Trio - It's been a long time since I've been doing any jazz.  Mostly I've been doing my loop station show and playing a lot of rock and roll.  But I've been getting a lot of inquiries in the past 6 months or so about doing some jazz and I've got my first trio gig booked.  Looks like I'm literally getting back into the swing of things!

GrooveTron-X: I try very hard to not start or join new projects these days, but I just can't help myself!  GrooveTron-X is a new duo of chill electronic music with live instruments.  Me and Johnny Carrera are doing something different, something cool, downtempo beats with extended instrumental jams for a more ambient setting of digial background noise. Our debut public performance is at Halycon (Blue Star location in San Antonio) with shows on Jan 5th and 26th, 9pm.  Come and enjoy cocktails, tapas, your friends, and some cool music. GrooveTron-X

Spotify playlists.  I wanted to remind y'all what we have and make it easy to add to YOUR playlist.

Noah Peterson - Solo Sax Sessions. This is my debut live looping recording.  I named it after the show I've been touring across the U.S. for the past 6 years.  It's a very interesting and fun recording that captures some ferocious jams.  There's an exceptional rendition of "Follow Me" which has been streamed over 1,000,000 times. Great versions of "Poortown Scrub," "Bump," and "I Just Can't Believe It," as well as a handful of original music written specifically for the loopstation.

Cosmic Dust - Journey.  This is a great jazz fusion recording. My old friend Jim Templeton put this group together a long time ago in a city far, far away.  The band is Jim Templeton on keys, Gary Edighoffer on reeds, Clipper Anderson on bass, Scott Reuser on drums, and Myles Kennedy on guitar.  (Yes... THAT Myles Kennedy, the rock star!)  This recording earned Jim and the band a Washington State Artist's Grant and is packed with fantastic music from start to finish.  If you love jazz, fusion, improvisation, and exceptional music - please check out this recording.  I'm pleased to have it in my catalog.

NEW VIDEOS FOR OLD MUSIC:  nada, nil, zlich.. still not quite the season for getting on these.  But I haven't forgotten! (Still doing loopfest vidoes!!!)

LOOPFESTS: The LoopFest Season is over, which means the 2017 season is being planned.  Things are going to be very different this year.  Huge thanks to the loopers who participated, the attendees, and our sponsors for 2016: www.morleypedals.com, TC-Helicon, Loopinglive.com, and Pigtronix!

  4. Uncertainty - Noah Peterson         (Ambient Space Sounds)
  5. Anxiety - Noah Peterson                 (Ambient Space Sounds)

Only one change in the line-up from last month - "Hope" dropped off and "Anxiety" leaped up. The consistent popularity of this record on Spotify is a bit of a mystery to me.  For ambient music this is a very good recording, but I had no idea it would outperform everything else in my catalog.

NEW NEWS:

My weekly residency on Wednesday nights has come to an end.  It was a great two and half years of music from locals, touring bands, and the occasional international artist.  Big thanks to Dave Gentle for giving me a spot to host music and for being such a great bartender and friend.  I'm looking for a new spot to set-up shop - so we'll see what the future brings!

BANDS:

West Kings Highway has a special New Year's Eve show!  We're going to be getting down at the Elks Lodge #216 in San Antonio, TX.  Doors are at 8pm and the night features heavy hor d'oeuvres, champagne toast, and door prizes.  Here's the Facebook event link for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/698506936997596/

La Chichada has a special show on Dec 10th at the Bang Bang Bar in San Antonio - Bigwood opens the night and Volcan closes the show!  No cover - come on down to the hippest spot in town and enjoy your favorite Rock Arte band!

Spotify playlists.  I wanted to remind y'all what we have and make it easy to add to YOUR playlist.

Irie Impressions - I Like It Like This. Irie Impressions is based out of Cottage Grove, OR.  And while I've been a member of the band I'm not on this recording.  Led by Alton Thomas and Lori Davis this is a true roots reggae album.  The title cut "I Like It Like This" sets the mood for some mellow Jamaican vibes. From there the record jumps into some political commentary/protest songs including a 9/11 tribute piece "September Morning."  The tunes and vibes are never heavy or depressing and there's always a message of hope. I think this is best represented by "Mr. Garvey Says."  From there the album changes direction and stays in the fun zone.  "Pai" is a hip cut featuring Marko and some tasty sax.  "Sky Juice" is a great tune about Alton selling his own sugary drink for money in Montego Bay, Jamaica.  My personal favorite is "Works Is Never Done," a rootsy groove that suits me!  The album wraps with the upbeat and funny "Human Bones"  Everybody Come Down!

Noah Peterson - Music for Film, Vol 1: Sax and Bass.  This is a great little recording.  Just me and bassist extraordinarie, David Captein.  I had been working with a lot of duos and trios in jazz, folk, and indie music.  I asked Dave to start doing sax and electric bass gigs.  He was a little concerned at first as he'd never done anything quite like that. He was surprised at how nice our little duo turned out.  I said it was because he was free from the neurotic, harmonic prisons of piano players.  (He thought that was pretty funny!)  The album starts off with "Why Mock Me," a tune originally composed for the Emmett Wheatfall poem. And it's a swinging little ditty.  Next is a lovely version of "Waltz for Tom," a tune written for an old friend and patron, Tom Irey.  Next is the only recording I have of "Plantains and Bananas," my answer to the "Chiquita Banana" song. I love how it came out.  The feel is great, the space is open, the groove is good, and the vibe is Irie! Dave's bass solo is sweetly fantastic.  "One Summer Day" is my favorite tune that I've written.  I love to record in all kinds of settings.  Dave really nails the intention of my writing on this and it's a lovely version. "Ethan's Blues" with the intro! We get to get down a little bit on this. "Coming Home to You," a tune written for my wife. This version is very artsy and expressive.  The final track is my best approximation of a Yaravi.  Titled "Peruvian" this is a free tempo piece full of flourish and feeling.

NEW VIDEOS FOR OLD MUSIC:  nada, nil, zlich.. still not quite the season for getting on these.  But I haven't forgotten!

This was an interesting line-up of talent.  They are largely phrase loopers with the exception of The Electric Noodle.  Although Robert Matheson doesn't exactly fit nicely into either category and is always an interesting and enjoyable performer.   I do hope you can watch some of all the performers as we were unable to live stream it.

NO cover - 1014 S. Presa, San Antonio, TX.

Spotify playlists.  I wanted to remind y'all what we have and make it easy to add to YOUR playlist.

Miles Ahead - Live at the Zebra Cocktail Lounge - This was a live recording at the Zebra Cocktail Lounge in Bozeman, MT. The band was 3 of the original members including me on tenor sax, James Ormond on bass, Rick Maier on drums, and Gordon Neal Herman on keys with Jay Stapleton on guitar.  This was from our 6 state, 3 week tour through the Northwest U.S.  This recording captures a lot of what we did best - jamming our original tunes.  This was an especially fun night despite me having to fasten keys on my sax with a wire twist tie.  Oh the joys of being on the road...

Noah Peterson - Live at Marylhurst Drive   This recording was quite an adventure.  Patrons are a rare and needed thing in the music business.  My old friend Tom Irey wanted to do something special on July 7th, 2007 (7/7//07).  So he decided to throw a party, have some jazz, and do a live recording.  At this time I was working with a lot of small combos, lots of other bands, and just wasn't around much for anything other than music.  Eli Reissman is on guitar with my friend and frequent bassist, Andre St. James on the low-end.  We did a musical theme with some of the pieces being composed just for this project.  This is the first recording of one of my favorite tunes - One Summer Day which I still play frequently and have recorded more than any of my other tunes.  It's a lovely and angst filled bossa nova.  Other gems include It Takes Two to Tango - which is a Spanish Tango.  Other than Andre, nobody has really been able to get that tune with quite the right feel and it's largely been dropped from performance except for an odd loop station show here and there. Of course, there's Waltz for Tom, which is dedicated to Tom Irey and fits quite nicely with the old tune "House of the Rising Sun."   And then there's an especially good version of Coming Home to You, a tune written shortly before this recording for my dear wife - which was about being gone all the time for work.  This is a special recording for me as it's deeply personal and my mentor, Jeffrey Dawkins was the audio engineer.

Halloween Costume party with La Chichada and Friends on Oct 29th at J&O's Cantina in San Antonio!  The Ghost Tracks acoustic duo and Daves Device join us for a musical party Saturday night before Halloween.   And there's a $50 prize for best costume!

West Kings Highway will be back in full swing for our Friday nights at Sancho's in San Antonio when I return in a couple of weeks.

The Solo Sax Sessions is at the Portneuf Grill at the Riverside Inn in Lava Hot Springs, ID tonight, at the Anchor Bistro in Twin Falls, ID tomorrow, and at the Emerald of Siam in Tri-Cities, WA on Saturday.

We're still pushing the Spotify playlists.  I wanted to remind y'all what we have and make it easy to add to YOUR playlist.

Miles Ahead - Miles Post 1 - This was my first professional recording.  It features six original tunes and received a fair amount of West Coast airplay.  I was thrilled the first time I heard my tune "Smoke This" on KMHD in Portland, OR.  Ah....who am I  kidding, I get thrilled everytime I hear my music on the radio.  It was made even better when I heard it syndicated on KLON out of Long Beach where that song was in low rotation on Payal Kumar's "Soul Jazz" program.  This album featured Gordon Neal Herman on keys, Alex Newton on guitar, James Ormond on bass and Rick Maier on guitar.  I ended up doing some other recordings with Rick and various musical activites with James and Rick over the years.  This music is still good!

My solo release - Duos & Trios   This was a follow up to my debut recording, Live at Biddy McGraw's.  I was going for short pieces of small combos on this concept record.  I had a number of jazz musicians I was working quite a bit with in the NW who were all featured on this recording: Jay Stapleton on guitar, the late, great Janice Scroggins on keys, and Dennis Caiazza and Dave Captein on bass.   This 14 track recording was produced by my mentor and friend, the late Jeffrey Dawkins of the acoustic blues band, "Back Porch Blues."  The recording features a couple of originals from myself and Jay Stapleton, including the co-written ditty "A Sweet Piece of Candy,"  which I used as a theme song for my TV Show "Portland Culture" and my radio show "NW Jazz & More!" on KPSU.  There's a haunting soprano sax and guitar duet of the Neil Young song, "Sugar Mountain," a classic, unusual, and lovely duet of soprano sax and bass on the Hoagy Carmichael standard "Georgia," and the album wraps up with a moving rendition of "America the Beautiful" courtesy of the graceful touch and tremendous skills of Janice Scroggins.  While not my personal favorite on the recording, I have gotten a lot of favorable comments of our rendition of Harlem Nocturne

NEW VIDEOS FOR OLD MUSIC:

Technically this isn't old music - Here's the 2nd video of my buddy Ted Martinez aka This Is Where Two Oceans Meet.

I have to confess, I've been pretty busy and while I do have a bunch of video downloaded, I haven't acutally made "new videos" for my "old music" in a while.  I'll try and have some new stuff up for you next month!

LOOPFESTS: The 2016 Rocky Mountain LoopFest is over and done!  Huge thanks to the loopers who participated.  Videos are going online now. I've only got a couple up, but there will be more!  RMLF playist is here - click it to dig it! Thawind Mills from Austin, TX does have his entire performance online. And he's GREAT!  Check it out. Others are just being posted and still being edited.  New ones go up almost every day.
