Back to St Pete

Back down in St. Pete stopped by the Zen Glass holiday party played a short set, found out my musical allies the Hackensaw Boys are down, here who I have played a few shows and booked up north. Unfortunately Jimmy Stelling isn’t down here with them for this tour, he and I are banjo buddies and who I know best in the band. I am settling down getting a band together and finding a place to live for my new life down here as I a got an awesome job as lead programmer at Southwest Florida Water Managment District (the people who test your water and fight for it’s purity).  Here is an old video with me and Dennis Stadelman from Cope at Ale and Witch, the first time we played together too was this show!

 

 

Edward Sharpe and Magnetic 0’s is allright

it’s hard to stay relevant/care about simple folk pop when you’re 30. but when you’re playing to tons or rapid hipsters with edward sharpe holding a megaphone to you. Makes me get the bug. Seth took the first song I did the second fiddle tune which melted everyones mind severely. Here is the tweet plus a short video from the band https://mobile.twitter.com/EdwardSharpe/status/628855508301139968

 


I used to hate on this band and mumford and sons for their lack of virtuosity, but I really see it’s about the ideas behind this band less about the music actually kind of cool, mumford can still break their banjos but there is something philosophically interesting about this Magnetic 0s band. It’s all about hot picking from where I’m standing though.

Halloween Wrap Up

Another great success we put more people in Jalopy than they ever saw. Special thanks to Jimmy Stelling of Hackensaw Boys/Stelling Banjos making it up and killing it.  Below are picks from superjam.
