Spring approaches its end...

February 9th was the last post, and here we are and it's June frickin' the first already. I continue to be very sporadic with this blogging thing, so I guess (so far at least) it has not engaged my energies very much...

Since my last post I found myself out of the band I spoke about after our one lined-up gig had been played. It was a bit surprising but what the heck. I've continued to seek a slot somewhere but with limited success. I played a few duet gigs with the singer from the band, the terrific Janna Mordan, and hope to continue doing that whenever possible. I now seem to be in a rock band but I'm not going to say another word about it until I really am. I've continued to show up whenever I can manage at the Redwood City Blues Jam (2nd, 3rd, and 4th Wednesdays each month at the Little Fox Theatre, soon to be every Wednesday) and at the Sunday night jams at the Old Princeton Landing; the Domenico Winery jams are now only the first Sunday each month and I've not been there since January...

I took a guitar lesson in March or April from Dave Workman which was very helpful, I've been digesting some nuggets from that since that have helped me over some humps...

Music I've seen: the earlier-mentioned Ford Brothers Blues Band with Robben Ford at Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz was terrific... and last week I saw the amazing stupendous phenomenal Richard Bona at Yoshi's in Oakland again, this time leading his own group.
