Wisconsin Is a Fabulous Place

We went to Wisconsin to play at the Band on the Sand festival for the third year in a row. We get to meet so many great people on the road, and Wisconsin is no exception. In fact, it was one of the first, if not the first, places where we felt at home onContinue reading “Wisconsin Is a Fabulous Place”

Burning up the Road

Apparently Jessie and I have been burning up the road.  How do I know?  In the last seven days, we have replaced seven tires.  I already posted about the two camper tires last week.  Today we brought five new tires into the family. This weekend we had a show in Florida, and Jessie’s car neededContinue reading “Burning up the Road”

Wyoming – What a Place!

What a trip we’ve had so far! After playing for a great crowd in Lincoln, Nebraska, we set off for Centennial, Wyoming. None of us have ever been to Wyoming. Cam has never been west of Texas. Neither Cam nor Jessie had ever seen the Rocky Mountains. All of that changed this weekend. As weContinue reading “Wyoming – What a Place!”

Off and On the Road Again

First, the off the road story: Shortly after the last post about riding my bike to work, I did something stupid. About a week and a half ago, I was fixin’ to head home on a Friday afternoon on my bike. I wanted to pump up my tires before starting my homeward trek, so IContinue reading “Off and On the Road Again”

A Fly-Fishin’ Musician

I got into fly fishing in August of 2016. It has quickly become my escape from music; my outlet to help me clear my head. More on that in a different post. Jessie and I had a great weekend this weekend. It started off with playing for a private event on Friday night. We hadContinue reading “A Fly-Fishin’ Musician”

Our New Tour (Camper) Bus!

Jessie and I have been talking about a pop up camper for a while. It would make it so easy to pack up and tour, save money that we would have spent on hotels, and we can take a little bit of home with us wherever we go! So several weeks ago, we bought aContinue reading “Our New Tour (Camper) Bus!”

Weekend Warriors

It means performing gigs on the weekends, returning home for the week. That is the lifestyle for those that have regular 9-5 jobs back home. For us, it means packing Thursday night, leaving as soon as I get home from work Friday, getting to Georgia between 12:30 and 2 at night, and driving home SaturdayContinue reading “Weekend Warriors”

All It Takes Is a Little Progress

Sometimes music gets hard.  It gets frustrating.  It feels like it is going nowhere.  Fast. That’s when a little progress can help. This last week, we found a little progress.  My wife has written some new songs and found one by a fantastic and well-decorated songwriter here in town, and we are itching to getContinue reading “All It Takes Is a Little Progress”

Olympic Hurdles

So the second show felt like an olympic event.  Here’s why: late Thursday night before the Saturday show, the A/C in our venue crapped out.  Died.  Stopped working.  This is not good for middle Georgia in July.  Postponement was not an option – we had to play this show because Kickstarter needed this show toContinue reading “Olympic Hurdles”

First Show – Done!

So our first show is done.  AND IT WAS AWESOME!  Things couldn’t have gone smoother, and my wife even thought it was good – she’s the one whose opinion really matters.  It was a relief, too.  She had lost her voice on Monday.  We had rehearsal on Tuesday, and she sang more than she probablyContinue reading “First Show – Done!”
