Greetings from Alaska! The locals swear we're in a heatwave, because the temps are in the low 20's and high 30's. I don't think "Heatwave" and snow really go together.
Let me take care of some odds and ends;
I bought a new bass! And I brought it (and only it) with me to Alaska! So it's a 'sink or swim' situation. What is this snappy new axe that can take the place of my fine vintage Fenders? Well, it's a $300 Indonesian Squire. It's called a "Vintage Modified Fretless Jazz", and it's, dollar for dollar, an amazing bass. It's not going to become my all around "Number One", but I sure don't have to worry about travelling with it. I'll be sure to write a review after this run of gigs.
Last Saturday, I played at the Elk Grove Brewery with Mojo Madness, a rare treat for me these days. I've been playing with James for years now, and now with Jim Caroompas on guitar and Artie Chavez on drums, it was a hell of a lot of fun. I played my ass off, thanks to those guys.
The remainder of December, outside of this Saturday the 9th, I'll be hosting the Saturday Afternoon blues jams at Red House. Plus I'll be available for lessons, sessions...whatever!
So, four shows in Anchorage, during the heatwave. Break out the sunscreen!
