One Goal – with my music – connect with strangers. Immediately, (3-10 secs), and then for 3.5 mins.
Simple in concept, very hard to do. Usually, I fail. Once in awhile it works. The “once in awhile” times, makes it all worth it.
I find the best way to do that is to dig really deep into my experience of things and then work, really, really hard to make a song and performance. Far, far more work than “fun.” Read More »
BIG singer-songwriter success at Silvie’s last nite. Much thanks to John Kuczaj our host who graciously gave up an Acoustic Explosion Monday nite for our little band of treble makers.
We had four players in the best room for acoustic music in the city. Dave, the sound guy is the best in the city. Great at vocal mix.
We had over 20 people mainly known by Rich Wats and his bro Simon. Nic Barnum and buddy also played. Pretty much every song was an original.
We cheerfully covered (mainly) territory between dark and very dark!
Apparently, the crowd fav of mine was Her Black, Black Heart. A pretty tru sory about a woman…..well……
With the graciousness of John and Silvie, we should be doing this again and reaching out to woman/young players and suburbanites. Yes, it iz safe!!! Well some of the songz are dangerouez….YIKES!!
Videos will go up soon. Anyone want to help with that?!
Note: John K is having a album release party this Friday the 12th at Silvies. BE THERE OR B SQUARED!!
