Spring is sprung...

Since my last time here:
  • Saw Robben Ford along with Ruthie Foster and Jorma Kaukonen at the Marin Center in San Rafael on February 27 and came away a total Ruthie Foster fan. If you don't know her, check her out.
  • Saw the Five Peace Band at the Zellerbach in Berkeley on March 20
  • Sat in at length with Dave Workman and his group at the Saloon in San Francisco on February 28 and again briefly on March 14.
  • Jammed a bunch of times as usual at the Little Fox, the Old Princeton Landing, and the 23 Club (the last of these jams is now sadly defunct with the closing of the venue, after a mere six weeks of existence) and ended up being YouTubed several times (you can see my "me at jams" playlist at my YouTube channel if you're interested).
  • Had a birthday.
Some cool stuff coming up too in April: the Derek Trucks Band on April 15 in San Francisco at the Grand Ballroom of the Regency Center, Jeff Beck on April 23 at the Fox Theater in Oakland, Robben Ford is going to play (and record a live CD) at the Independent in San Francisco, and my pal and Redwood City Blues Jam M.C., Vince Caminiti, is on this year's Blues Guitar Extravaganza bill along with RenĂ© Solis, Steve Freund, and Chris “Kid” Andersen at the Little Fox Theatre.

Spring is indeed sprung, and springing!

More news from me soon about new projects, etc.
