So it's 11;32 on a Sunday night.  I'm home after a long night from BillyRay Sheppard's B-Day Bash.  I did a short thing with my lop station stuff and the rest of the night I just kicked back and enjoyed the ride.  What a night of serious funk/fusion/jazz!!!  Sometimes, when you get to watch your betters throw down like no tomorrow it's just he best.  Texas music is no fucking joke.  Sometimes I don't feel like I'm doing the state justice.  But it was real joy to listen to a bunch of cats lay it down and…

I really did have a stellar 2019.  Granted the finish was weak. I didn't care for how aspects of it ended, which kinda put a bad taste in my mouth about the whole thing, but after a lot of rest and some time off. I have some perspective on the big picture.  And it was a very good year.  

Looks like 2020 is off to a roaring start.  New ventures are knocking on the door, the San Antonio Coffee Fest was a screaming success, met some new and good folks already, and I'm trying to expand my partnerships.  And…

musings.....

Aging in the music biz.  Some days the appeal of 9 to 5....  not many days, but some days.   I'm finding I'm very okay with playing less.  There's things I'm just not interested in doing anymore.   I think my time being a talent buyer has affected this.  

I enjoy hiring bands.  I love to give gigs to people.  I know they all need it, I know they all love it, I know they are all grateful for it... no matter what happens between hiring and load-out, these things are true.  I love being the guy…

2019 November musings... 

I've recently sold out of my CD "Tip the Band."  https://open.spotify.com/artist/7EBNJM4RRdPFabvQg3qyj0?si=dEtvRHYaTCGou5kjx_QMgg

I love selling out of recordings, especially in the day of "nobody buys CDs anymore."   Which isn't quite true. CD sales are declining, still. And probably will continue to decline.  But those are numbers from the majors. They don't really take into account independent musicians.  Mostly because we don't report sales and there really isn't a mechanism to report sales (although…

Had a rare night to myself.    My duties today were light and ended early so I got some computer work done and dinked around.

 I got to reflect on some of the work I've been doing and the folks I get to do it with.  San Antonio has been very good to me.  National Geographic called of the events I work for one of the top 7 Fall Festivals in the U.S.    And it's been consistently called one of the top 10 Muertos Festivals in the world by several press outlets.  I've been working it for 3 years.   It's a…
