What's Happenin' [05.27.13]
I'm on a plane. They have a power outlet between the seats so I am getting all charged up as I type! Summer is about here again, but keep in mind... this is the Summer of 2013. This will only happen once.
Flying to Portland Maine today to start another tour with Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers, in which I will also cross paths with ALO at Bonnaroo in Tennessee. The Gramblers have four weeks of shows ahead. We'll be driving in a Sprinter, an exciting first for us. Captains chairs and a TV, woohoo! We've got some NE dates with Gov't Mule, then Mountain Jam Fest in upstate NY near Woodstock, an East Coast run to Bonnaroo, and then a straight shot home through the great Southwestern states. This tour will end in South Lake Tahoe opening for the great Steve Miller.
It's been busy days, busy weeks, busy months lately. Splitting time with Nicki Bluhm and ALO has been a challenge, but in a great way. I feel lucky to be part of such awesome projects. The Summer and Fall calendar is filling up, but hopefully will get a little downtime in the Winter.
It's been tricky keeping my tour page here up-to-date, so I went the lazy route and just put up links to the bands I'm out with. And besides tour schedules and all, keep an eye out for the new Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers album coming out late this Summer, as well as another John Craigie album coming out even sooner. I'm happy to say both sound top notch!
What else?... Have a great Summer, of 2013! Make it magical. Cheers, Steve
