When I joined the Candye Kane Band just about a year ago, it was kind of dizzying. Leading up to the audition I focused on learning mostly tunes from her latest disc “Superhero”, but she has nine other releases, and the set list is deep with catalog.
There’s no way I could have gotten up and running fast enough without everyone in the band’s help, especially Evan the drummer, yelling when to play and when to shut up! Every once and a while I’d hear him yell “Hey!” over my shoulder, to get my attention. He’d just give me a “Something’s coming, pay attention” look and I’d be ready…usually.
Evan is leaving the band, and will be starting a new musical adventure, and I want to wish him well on his “hero’s journey.” Consider the fact that he’s been playing and touring with the band behind his own Mother for eight-plus years; it takes a certain heftage of balls to decide to do something else! Thanks, man. Literally couldn’t have done it without your help and support.
In time I’ll introduce everyone to our new drummer, when we figure out his Stage Name. Just ‘Patronius’? We’ll get back to that.
The Spring and Summer road trips are filling out, but in the meantime there are opportunities for our Southern and Northern California friends to catch up with the band as we work him in. Check out the schedule and come say “Hi. What’s your name?” Then let me know what he says.
(I tease, Marcus, because I care!)
