In the last post, I talked about the summer tour I had with Mark Huff. http://www.therealmarkhuff.com We played three shows in Seattle, one in Eugene, Oregon and had a final show in my old stomping grounds, Reno, NV. I've been a musician and a songwriter for decades, and like any other endeavor, it has had its high and low points. This tour with Mark was one of the highlights of my long musical career. Why? First, it was fun. Mark stayed at my house and I was able to spend a good amount of time with him there and on the road. Mark is a character and we shared a lot of laughs as well as serious conversation. In the middle of our little run, we went to see Steve Forbert play at Seattle's Tractor Tavern. Steve plays each night like he is in front of a stadium full of people and it inspired both of us. At the end of the tour, I felt like I had expanded my vocal range, improved my guitar playing and picked up a bunch of live performance tips from Mark and Steve. Another treat was that we had an award winning photographer and Travel Writer, Kristen Gill http://www.kristengill.com at 4 out of the five shows. Kristen took some amazing photos that I am compiling into a video to document the tour. I'll share that on this site soon.
