Canary's First Future Upcoming Gig!

So as you know, I'm getting the band back together.  First step is acquire band.  Second step is rehearse a lot.  Third step is play a show, and I know where I want that show to be at: the Lilypad in Cambridge.

I have learned a lot over the years as a musician, and I played in a lot of big rooms with not a lot of people for some of those years.  Okay, most of those years.  So, my new plan?  Play tiny places.  It's so simple!

The Lilypad is super cool and it holds 60 people seated, and 93 standing.  I'm confident I can pull in 60 people between the other band members, friends, relatives, friends of friends, folks I sail with, folks I ski with, folks I meet randomly - you get the idea.

So I'm thinking late June or early July for this gig.  That means I better snap to it!

I'll let you know when things are confirmed.

(I really have no idea what I'm doing sometimes.  Nobody else does either.)

Lizard Lounge - 1.20.14

I have no more excuses.  Daily blogging commences once again starting today.

I played at the Lizard Lounge last night.  I was going to do a new song as I usually do each week to keep it fresh.  I wrote a song. I'll record it and post it soon, but I didn't feel like it was ready, even though I have been known to play songs with the ink still drying on the page.  This one was different.  It wasn't time.

So I was gonna play "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" (which I did actually play) and "Hey Stranger."  I didn't play "Hey Stranger because I had too much fun with "You Ain't..." that I wanted to keep it going with my old standby, "A Fool Like Me."  They're both blues songs, but I didn't care.  I wanted to keep the party going.

The party will continue on Friday night at the Davis Square Theatre with Amy Herrera and Steve Subrizi.  Starts at 10PM, folks!  See ya there!

Enjoy the tunes:
