Back on Schedule… and a new Vid!

It’s been a little bit since the last post was supposed to arrive… life happens!  Hopefully I am back on schedule now, so look forward to some more updates, like this brand new video I made!  Now you can see from a ‘new perspective’ what I do and how I do it!

Let me know what you think of this idea!  I unfortunately do not own nor can I afford a GoPro camera, so I was pretty limited as to how I could accomplish what I wanted.  So, being the person that I am, I went to the garage to try to invent something that could hold my phone where I wanted it to be.  My solution?  Our daughter’s old softball helmet and duct tape!  That’s right, that video was all made with me awkwardly playing bass, saxophone, and EWI through the front guard of the helmet and a very large phone pretty much taped to my forehead.  But hey, it works!  Maybe the CEO of GoPro will stumble upon this blog post somehow and donate one for the advancement of musicians and video everywhere!  🙂

I’m going to try to push out some more posts very soon, so keep coming back for updates!  And please, continue sending me ways to improve the site, all suggestions are welcome!

And as a final note for this post:

Whatever you or your families or friends believe in, keep love close in your hearts.  Love conquers all things, and is the perfect bond of union.  Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Updates!

First off, I want to thank all of you so much for the support you give my family and I!  We value and cherish all of our friends so much, and you’re always in our thoughts and prayers.

Are you in the Evansville area?  Looking for a place to have dinner tonight?  Come join me at Kanpai; I’ll be playing a solo loop set from 7-9pm.  Kanpai has some of the best sushi in town; you’ve gotta check it out!  In fact, go in there and ask for the Monte Roll.  Seriously!  🙂

**Update**I actually fixed my car myself!  Well, for the most part.  There are a couple fragments still frozen in ice in the driveway, but besides a small hole, it looks pretty normal, haha!

Also coming up at the end of the week, Skelton’s Monoturage will be performing at Mojo’s Boneyard, starting at 9pm.  We’ll be playing some of our new tunes; don’t miss the fun times!  Also next week, my darling wife and I will be playing for the Brown Bag Luncheon downtown in Evansville!  That is always such a fun performance; don’t miss it!  That same day, I’ll be jamming on the top floor of Zuki Downtown around 6pm, so you can get a double dose of fun music!

I LOVE working with the students and staff at Evansville Music Academy.   My students have all been so great!  And it is just such a great experience to work one-on-one with someone else, to see how they think and grow, to watch the light bulb turn on when they really understand- there’s nothing like it!  And by the way, if you’re interested in taking lessons, let me know!

So the next post will be the exciting conclusion to my 2015 Reflection.  I can’t wait!  So, I leave you with this thought:

Never, ever underestimate the power of a genuine smile.
